Dr. THANOS is kind, compassionate, very knowledgeable, and an excellent listener. He offered to speak to my husband and I on the phone if we had additional questions once we got home. I trust Dr. THANOS and hold him in the highest regard.

My overall visit was good. The provider promised that he would get back to me regarding information related to the vitrectomy that we discussed as it relates to my insurance. I have not heard back from him yet

Dr Thanos is an excellent practitioner - he has great people skills, and takes the time to fully explain the condition you are being treated for, treatment and prognosis. He is softspoken, gentle, patient and reassuring in his demeanor - while maintaining professionalism. His staff is friendly and efficient. I have had a very positive experience as a patient with Dr Thanos and his staff.

Although the eye treatment provided by Dr. Thanos is difficult, he is extremely kind and makes the experience (I'm quite sensitive to one of the medications he must use) relaxing and pleasant. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone needing retinal care.

he verbalized many terms to his assistant during examination of my retina, but didn't explain them to me. He did explain the retinal scan. He had bad breath.

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.
