Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kiss "The gift of sight is one of the most cherished and treasured of all our senses. Whether it's macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, retinal detachment, retinal vein occlusion or ocular inflammation, I offer a caring and nurturing environment for patients and their families during such a vulnerable and uncertain time. I strive to deliver the most compassionate medical and surgical care using the latest state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment technology to provide an individualized treatment regimen based on a strong scientific and evidenced-based foundation.  My patients come from all walks of life and from every corner of the world. Some patients and families come for a single visit seeking a second opinion, others have been coming practically monthly for nearly ten years.  I look forward to meeting you and meeting the challenges of caring for your eyesight."

Patient Comments (3)

Although it is a clinic atmosphere, and you will be seen first by fellows, I strongly recommend Dr. Kiss for any retinal problems. He is very knowledgeable and caring. I didn't need surgery but I would trust him if I did. I was referred to him five years ago for a potential retinal problem. ...more

Appointment means nothing, except order of arrival if you're on time. From then on you wait for an hour+ until your turn comes. A resident will quickly examine you first w Dr Kiss inowhere to be seen. After another half hour wait, he shows up for a 5 minute (max) exam. Overpriced, not worth it.
