In a few words is a pleasure to have Doctor Thanos as my eye doctor. Excellent and professional service.

Office staff is excellent. Doctor was very thorough. I liked him a lot. You have to understand, though, as a patient, there is no way I can really know the level of expertise held by the physician. I believe most people just go by whether or not they like the doctor, which to me seems kind of stupid. Having said that, I did like him and I have no reason not to trust that he is top notch.

I presented an unusual and complex eye problem and they worked very hard but in the end there was no improvement but that was a risk that I think we all understood and I'm glad we proceeded because now we know and I can move forward.

this clinic schedules a lot of people for 1:00 Pm appts and it causes a back up. i suggest not scheduling so many appts at the same time and staggering it a bit bc it causes delays once initially screened.

emergency appointment for possible retinal bleed. Dr Thanos saw me same day. Thorough and complete exam. Really reassuring and explained what occurred to my retina. Dr. Thanos knowledgeable and patient. It was such a pleasant experience, that if I wasn't 6000 miles away, I would definitely come back.

Dr had my prior history before he entered the room. He failed to read it fully and made assumptions that could have ment additional testing and additional specialists until I ask him why and then told him that the information he wanted to test me for had already been diagnosed and was documented in his paperwork. The tests and specialist proposal was su subsequently canceled.

Dr Thanos assistant and the technician for my test were both extremely efficient. I never experienced feelings of being rushed, all of my questions were answered. Both were able to establish good rapport with me in spite of the fact that I was very anxious about the possible outcomes of the visit. Their preparation allowed me to be calm enough to focus on my discussion with Dr. Thanos.

Dr. Thanos never seems in a hurry. If you are unfortunate enough to have an eyeball injury, your luck changes to fortunate if Dr. Thanos is your doctor.
