Dr Kiss is absolutely the best retina specialist in the country!! My mother Dr asha kothawala visited him all the way from india to have a complex vitrectomy surgery for macular hole with retinal tears. He is compassionate and answers all the questions without rushing the patients. My mother has regained all the lost vision due to his amazing surgical skills. He answered all my mothers's emails even on weekends and also during vacations. His clinical knowledge and surgical skills are unparalled

My experience with Doctor Kiss was good. Wait time wasn’t great but he was able to properly diagnose what three other specialists mis diagnosed. If you have or may have Macular Degeneration he is your guy.

Dr Kiss is very personable and really cares about his patients. He is an expert in his field and although I have not needed surgery I would trust him to do it. The office atmosphere is like a clinic, and sometimes fellows are present during the eye exam. But any wait to see him is worth it.

Totally would not recommend him. He was arrogant, distracted and spent more time talking about woodpeckers than about my eye. Would not answer questions, full of himself.

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.
