Patient Comments (1)
in Revere, MA |
Extraordinary Doctor! I have a horrible, full blown eye phobia. Can't look at eyes, can't touch them, cant even think about it! I was petrified when Informed I needed eye surgery. Dr. Patalano explained everything in a professional and concise manner. More importantly, he listened to all of my fears and concerns with patience, compassion and to my surprise, humor! He accommodated all of my needs! It is 3 weeks after my surgery, and I thank the powers that be everyday for Dr Patalano. Thanx!
