I can't thank Dr Cardone enough for his assistance with my 16 month old son. My sons pediatrician noticed abnormal eye movement during a checkup and was concerned. I saw Dr Cardone who not only gave him a thorough checkup but went out of his way to help me get an appt with a neurologist (I wasn't having any luck with getting an appt for the neurologist) Dr Cardones office followed up to make sure my son was set up with the help he needed. I will always go to Dr Cardone and his staff is amazing!!

My daughter has seen Dr.Cardone for 9 years. He and his staff are practically like family to us now. We moved out of town a couple of years ago but refuse to leave his practice, driving more than 2 hours for an appointment. My daughter has regular check ups and has had a surgery by Dr. Cardone. Very trustworthy, honest, and skilled.

Best pediatric eye doctor in town! Dr. Cardone is an expert in his field and I trust him completely with my children's vision health. He is always kind and courteous and takes the time to address any and all of my concerns. His nurses and office staff are always polite and helpful.
