    Worst doctor ever. Saw Dr. Menger for bleeding in back of eyes from a head trauma. I had no vision issue at the time. I was told I need aggressive emergency laser to stop the bleeding after 8 visits for laser per eye I was told there was nothing else he could do for me and would need a retinal specialist. I was having trouble with my vision and was told it was due to the laser and would get better. WRONG!!! It was due to the aggressive treatment. I lost vision in one eye 70% other eye. thankyou

    In my opinion, Dr Menger is the only surgeon to go to for Cataract Surgery. He is extremely professional, skillful, and yet his casual personality immediately puts you at ease. Of my many doctors, he is one of the few I trust completely! He answers any questions that you may have accurately and fully. For Long Island patients he operates at the Winthrop Outpatient Center on Eastgate & Zeckendorf Boulevards, a modern & state of the art facility, easy to get to and with a large parking lot.

    If you like waiting an hour an a half past your scheduled appointment in a waiting room that smells like a neglected nursing home this is the doctor for you. With no end in sight I left before being seen.
