They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

Dr. Thanos is very attentive, an excellent listener, and explains situations concerning my eye health (I have macular degeneration) with great detail. He shares scans of my eyes and explains them thoroughly. It is a pleasure to be working with him.

The only negative was the malfunctioning computer equipment. I had to retake images. The staff and provider handled it well, but it still made my visit lengthy and frustrating. Also, I do not recommend eye specialists to anyone, I think that is a silly question.

Besides complete and excellent information about my eye health, I appreciate Dr. Thanos' cordial, conversational manner. I think it's very nice to be put at ease in a doctor's office; that is definitely the case here.

Appointment was concerning a horseshoe tear on eye lens..Dr. Thanos explained that without laser reinforcement/ repair of the tear, there was a high risk of retinal detachment which results in blindness, should the critical area be left without treatment...visit went well...the tear was a challenge to treat because of it being in a hard to access place on my eye (and my eyes are deep set, so I'm sure that didn't help), but he persisted and was successful in doing the repair. I would for sure want him if I ever needed eye work done again.

Dr. Thanos was wonderful. He has a remarkable combination of reassuring competency and genuine compassion. I never felt pressured during this visit by time constraints. He was very thorough in explaining my acute condition, listening to my concerns, answering my questions and reassuring me about the rather frightening, yet necessary, medical procedure. At the same time that he reassured me, he also was able to impart the urgency of addressing this medical condition. He was kind, genuine, knowledgeable and efficient. I was extremely satisfied with the entire experience and consider myself quite fortunate to have been able to receive treatment from Dr. Thanos. With his help I intend to continue seeing him (both literally and figuratively, as he is an ophthalmologist).

waiting room was not crowded but there were people there who were eating and drinking liquids. Thus they had their masks off. I absolutely feel that there should be NO food in the waiting room.

It is always good to visit Dr. Thanos. We talk about our families. where we went to graduate school, etc. It is not fun having someone stick needles into your (my) eyes, but this is the treatment which has improved my sight immensely. When my mother was younger than I am now she was blind. I am lucky to have Dr. Thanos giving me the treatments!

During the visit I mentioned that I had had a diagnosis years ago with an eye condition, Macular Degeneration. The doctor said I did not have this condition. This was confusing to me, I wish I would have questioned him further about it.

Dr. Thanos is an absolute treasure - he is extremely humble, knowledgeable and I always feel he has my best interests at heart. As an older consumer, I don't often feel that way with our current health system.

Although I have confidence in this physician, I experience a feeling of being rushed when we talk. He explains in a way I can understand but doesn't make space for me to ask him for any clarifications I would like. His assistant is excellent and provides information within her scope but I would like the MD to pause and allow me to clarify.

staff need to be educated on how patients sign up to access my health... a parent of a minor under 14 should be given the paperwork in office to sign up on first visit so the don't have to return them, because you can't register them on line with out mailing them back or return to office which is inconvenient if you live more then 2 hours away
