Ville Platte, LA |
Dr. Piccione and his staff are very professional and friendly. My children are extremely comfortable during his exams and the atmosphere is child friendly. I was able to schedule an appointment that fit the needs of my schedule and had a minimal wait time upon arriving. I have recommended him to many friends with children and will continue to do so.

Two of my children see Dr Piccione and I am so pleased with the progress they have made. Dr Piccione immediately recognized the vision issues both of my children had and he took immediate corrective measures. My middle child had to have surgery on both of his eyes to correct his issues and Dr Piccione and his staff were amazing during this process. I would recommend everyone to come see Dr Piccione if they have any indication their child might have some vision issues.

Dr. Piccione has recently performed strabismus surgery on my 15 year old son and the result has been amazing. My son was very comfortable with Dr. Piccione and that made having surgery so much easier.

We love coming to Dr. Piccione's office. We have been patients since 2007.

Extremely excellent service. Dr. Piccione is very knowledgeable. Also, very professional as well. Discovering that my 12 month old needed glasses wasn't the easiest thing in the world to process. Me nor my husband knew much about eye problems. Dr. P along with staff and ABC eyewear helped us to learn vastly. They gave us comfort as parents and made us feel so much better about the issue. It's only been a few months and our daughters eyes have already improved a ton. That should speak for itself.
