Dr Piccione has been seeing my children for at least 10 years. He successfully performed a surgery on one of my children at a year old. Her eyes are still perfect. We see Dr Piccione for regular checkups for all four of my children. The office staff is always efficient and courteous.

The ULTIMATE in quality! It was God send finding Dr. Piccione. Educated in adult strabismus (as well as children) he’s the very best at what he does. My right eye has been an ongoing problem, he was able to get the measurement and aligmanenr perfect with a quick uneventful surgery. Recovery was a breeze. He takes great pride in doing a great job and it shows, from the quality of his staff, to the crease in his immaculate docrors coat. I’m very pleased indeed!

Dr. Piccione has cared for my 5 children for the past 8 years. He is professional, caring, and prompt with appointments. He is extremely intelligent which has put my mama mind at ease when we have had eye troubles requiring surgery as well as quickly noticing vision changes and getting my children into the proper pair of glasses. We love Dr. Piccione and his staff!

We first saw Dr. Piccione in 2002 for our baby who was in need of glasses. He has since followed all four of our children. Each visit has always been courteous and professional. Many of the other people whom I have recommended to see Dr. Piccione have all expressed genuine satisfaction in the professional care that they received. I highly recommend Dr. Piccione to anyone in need of excellent professional care!

Dr. Piccione and his staff are extremely friendly, professional, and courteous. We have been coming here for years. He is knowledgeable, takes his time with us, and explains everything in detail. I would not take my son anywhere else.

We've had an amazing experience with Dr. Piccione. My son Greyson is 4 1/2 years old w/significant developmental delays. He's been in physical therapy since he was 10 months old.By his 4th birthday, he had the strength/skills to walk independently, but fear of falling was holding him back. Months ago it became noticeable that one of Greyson's eyes was turning inward. Dr. Piccione straightened his eye with a 20min procedure and 2 days later, Greyson began to walk. We could not be more grateful.
