I have seen Dr. Gentile for several years after 911 incident. He is an amazing doctor. He is attentive to the concern of his patients. He listens and answers all fears and questions about "what is going on" in the process of monitoring my eye sight for macular degeneration and retina screening. He is one of the best doctors I have who has given me treatment. I highly recommend. *******

Dr. Gentile saved my sight when I was losing hope for healing. He is an amazing doctor with 100% concern for his patients. He listens and answers all fears and questions about "what is going on" in the process of saving my eye sight. He is one of the best doctors I have who has given me treatment. I had researched him and am blessed to have him as my caregiver. If you want a knowledgeable and sweetheart for your doctor - Dr. Gentile is the one and only doctor to choose.

I have been a patient of Dr. Gentile's for about 6 years. I wish all my doctors were like him. He is an excellent diagnostician, very caring and provides superior treatment. He even encouraged me to get a second opinion!

The BEST in the city. It’s because of him that my grandfather may one day have a chance at seeing again. He took his time with everything - from examining the eye to answering questions. You are in good hands when you are with Dr. Gentile.

Looking for a surgeon who is the top in his profession. Dr. Gentile is not only knowledgeable but has the experience to be proficient in his field. I was comfortable enough to let him ( and Dr.Batta) do surgery on both eyes at the same time. Thank you.

Ron A in Lindenhurst, NY – Jul 06, 2017
Because of Dr. Gentile, I can see again. After suffering for 6 months of only being able to "see" light, I was introduced to Dr. Gentile. His calm manner and the warmness of his staff and himself made me believe that I might regain sight. After talking and explaining ever detail, we decided on surgery. Dr Gentile's skill as a surgeon are amazing. I can't possible say enough good things about him and his staff. Very dedicated team.

I called my friend who recommended Dr. Gentile to me to thank her again. This doctor is not only knowledgeable about the latest research, he is extremely personable. In spite of the late hour, he took time to answer questions completely and provide additional information in an unhurried manner. He is a consummate professional.
