Dr. Putrino and Center for Sight is a world class practice. A family member recommended them to me when I moved to Bradenton three years ago and I am so glad I took their advice. While the practice is large, they work hard at treating everyone individually, like a smaller practice would: empathy, care, concern and professionalism. Dr. Putrino is one of the best optometrists I’ve ever had because he loves what he does and he has a rare gift of explaining your particular issue, results or general eye health in a way that you can understand. He never appears rushed and will answer your questions knowledgeably and honestly. Because I had cataract surgery (Dr. Soscia - also wonderful!) in the last two years, I’ve seen Dr. Putrino many times as follow up. He’s been incredible. I wouldn’t trust my eye health to anyone else and highly recommend this Ophthalmology practice.

Dr. Putrino is professional, kind, thorough, knowledgeable, charming, amazing and put me at ease with my eye issues twice in six months. I cannot find enough kind words to say about him. Consider yourself lucky to have him as your doctor. I know I do.

Competent, caring, and accessible. Actually LISTENS to the patient and checks what may be the underlying condition waiting time is not meaningful because of time lags on dilation, etc

For a routine eye exam to update a prescription, Dr Putrino’s prescription was so off that my son suffered severe headaches. Then my son was asked to bring his year old contact prescription that the doctor duplicated. For this experience, Dr. Putrino charged $381.00. At first we were told that this routine eye examen will be covered by our insurance and we were only responsible for a copay of $40.00. We were misled, received the worst eye doctor exam and left to pay a bill. Stay Away!

I have been in several times in the past year. I felt the most comfortable and confident on this visit. I spent a great deal of time with the Dr and we had a great conversation about general health and the impact on your eyesight. The extra time he spent was very much appreciated and informative.

Dr. Putrino is very professional, personable and friendly. He takes his time with patients and calmly answers questions. I have also witnessed his interaction with his staff when it wasn't apparent I could overhear and he is very courteous and respectful with them too.

I was extremely impressed with Dr. Putrino (and his assistant)! He is patient, spends time with you, and answers questions. I felt like I was his "only patient" when he was in the room. He found an eye condition (not found in a previous eye exam by another eye doctor 6 months ago). He is thorough, friendly, and made me feel at ease. His assistant was also very thorough, friendly, and helpful. I would highly recommend this office and Dr. Putrino!
