Dr. B is AMAZING! – This is not a lasik review... just general opthalmology.
About a month ago, I woke up one morning with severe pain in my left eye and I knew right away that it was a scratch. I called Dr. B and he accommodated me right away. Once I got to his office, he took me straight back and whatever he did, immediately eased the pain. He gave me sample drops which saved me money at the pharmacy. He was very thorough in my exam and the 5 or so follow-up exams I had until he released me with healthy eyes!
As my luck would have it, a stye just came out on my eye. I've had them before and after a few days of warm compresses, they heal on their own. But this one was much different and became so bad yesterday that I knew I needed to see a doctor. Again, I called and he took me right away. I got there and he was very busy but when the receptionist saw the severity of my stye, she told him and he dropped everything to see me immediately. He was also surprised at how bad it was but was he was so calm which really made me feel at ease. He examined it and proceeded to drain it. It was already really painful but he was so gentle. It's only been 24 hours since I saw him and it's already much better.
In a nut shell, Dr. Bonanni is professional, brilliant, gentle and down right amazing! I would never go to any other ophthalmologist in NYC!
And even though I can not review Dr. B for Lasik, while I was in the waiting room for my follow-up appointments from my scratch, I spoke with many others in the waiting room who were there for their Lasik follow-ups and they all had nothing but amazing things to say about Dr. B, the procedure and the results!
