Patient Comments (1)
in Rockville Centre, New York |
I have known Dr. Fumuso for more than thirty years. He is always there when I needed him. When ever I had an office with him he made me feel very comfortable and at ease. Just recently he performed Cataract Surgery on both eyes. I felt very much at ease in the O.R. Before I knew it the procedure was over and I felt just great. Dr. Fumuso is a very compassionate Dr. and I feel knowing for the past 30 years plus he is also a friend. There is no one better than Dr. Fumuso.
