Dr. Engelbert and his entire staff are the absolute best. Dr. Engelbert is the most knowledgeable and caring person I have ever seen. I have been blessed to be in his care for a retinal detachment and his reassurances and bedside manner have helped me to get through this. I could not be in better hands.

Dr. Engelbert, for the most part, was attentive and professional. Two doctors did my surgery. The confusion I felt, because he was not the doctor I initially went to, was unfortunate but not his fault. I felt the staff could have done a better job telling me I was now Dr. Engelbert's patient. Both offices called in unrelated prescriptions. Hard to get that sorted out and ended up throwing out unused prescriptions.

Dr Gasparov – Oct 31, 2019
I cannot recommend Dr. Engelbert -- and his team at the White Plains office from Bernie at the front desk to the techs -- highly enough. I came under his care following complications from a vitrectomy performed by another retinal surgeon. Dr. Engelbert performed two surgeries to treat and/or prevent subsequent retinal detachments over the course of the next few months. Anybody doing basic research will see that he is at the top of his field, but more importantly, when one is facing the loss of
