Had him for 4 years. Maybe not his fault but I had progressively worse office visits. This week I had a 2:30pm appointment. By 4pm he still hadn't seen me. No one came out to tell me he was running late, or running beyond late. Unacceptable. I walked out. You can do better.

Dr Patalano performed Lasik surgery on my eyes in 2006 and have been very happy with the results. Since then, he has performed the surgery on my wife, my sister and two other friends. I continue to see him for routine eye exams and find him to be warm, caring and extremly smart/knowledge. My three children are now patients of him

I will never recommend this doctor. I waited for 2 1/2 hours in the waiting room along with many other patients. Clearly either the doctor or the office don’t respect their patients time .
