What People Say About Dr. Russell Pecoraro, MD

I recently moved here and my previous ophthalmologist suggested Dr. Pecoraro. Although my doctor didn't know him personally, they belong to the same professional association of retina specialists and he was sure Dr. P. would be good. Indeed, I am very happy, having seen him twice. He explains things clearly and answers questions patiently. His staff is very efficient, professional, and friendly. I was done in 40 minutes, which included intake, two tests & seeing the doctor. I recommend him.

In changing doctor, I am so delighted to have Dr Pecoraro as my eye specialist. He is so skilled in his techniques and keeps me well informed on my eye condition. He is pleasant and has such a great demeanor, always smiling and shakes your hand when he walks into the room. I would certainly refer Dr. Pecoraro in the care of their eyes. I also like to commend the staff at Clay Eye for their pleasant, professional manner ! Thank you

Absolutely the best opthomologist I have had the pleasure to know. I live in a motor home and have to see an opthomologist once a month for AMD. I have been treated by no less than six different doctors in different parts of the country. Dr. Pecoraro is undoubtedly the most efficient, knowledgeable and personable Doctor I have seen thus far. I was very pleased with the time spent in the office and the outcome of the injections. I would absolutely recommend him.

He is very knowledgeable, shares information easily and is one of very few Ophthalmologists who will do both retinal problems and cataracts at the same time. Otherwise it requires 2 surgeries when he does them in one! Excellent bedside manner and friendly!

Dr. Pecoraro is extremely knowledgeable and so he knows what questions to ask about how my condition is doing. He listens and asks me if I have any questions or concerns. We discuss anything that I am not clear about. His staff is very efficient and experienced and therefore makes Dr. Pecoraro's job have a better outcome for me. No time is ever wasted in his office.
