Dr. Thanos was very busy with other patients. Staff were good about reporting this overload.

  Sep 21, 2023
Dr Thanos and his tech team were very nice and thorough.

  Sep 12, 2023
I had only five minutes with the specialist. A woman in street clothes walked into the tiny room I was stuck in. Started an eye exam without introducing herself. Got annoyed when I didn't get what she was doing. I complained. And she was wearing perfume. The tech guy was annoid when I opened the door after another 20 minutes in that tiny room.It was a nightmare visit.

  Sep 11, 2023
Excellent office, Dr. Thanos is thoughtful and considerate. I feel very comfortable under his care.

Dr. Thanos is the BEST eye surgeon I have had in my lifetime. He follows my wet macular degeneration very closely, gives me effective treatments, and shows a phenomenal amount of compassion to me as a person. I have recommended him to three friends.

Excellent visit all-around

  Aug 24, 2023
I feel well cared for.

  Aug 22, 2023
I had to wait a very long time between segments of the visit. I had other obligations later in the day and very stressed that I wouldn't get out in time. My appointment lasted an hour and 15 minutes for a total of25 minutes of contact time. The ophthalmologist was hustling from one room to another and I was at the end of the line apparently. Not his fault, the clinic demands this.

  Aug 18, 2023
Everyone was so nice and attentive, even funny when I was nervous. Same with the person that helped me over the phone when I called about my concerns - she took the time to ask the Doctor about my symptoms, called me back and got me in that same day. All was wonderful.

  Aug 10, 2023
Dr Thanos is probably the best dr I have ever had. Smart, caring, accessible and skilled.

Dr. Thanos is wonderful. He is compassionate, competent and caring, humorous and personable. Although the appointments involve treatments that are uncomfortable, he and the support staff always make my experience there as excellent and pleasant as possible.

  Aug 3, 2023
I did not have any of the staff that makes me uncomfortable so that was good. I can't have the guy that pushed my head into the camera ever again!

Arist is one of the most attentive, competent, caring health providers I have ever encountered. His doctor/patient relations are EXCELLENT! Amazing how much he can get done, and still make you feel like you were cared for, in the short amount of time the Legacy system allows their doctors. Way to go Arist!

Short-staffed day of visit so long waiting time after dilation but excellent visit, very good provider, patient & direct.

  Jun 8, 2023
One of the finest physicians I've ever had

  Jun 7, 2023
Dr. Thanos is EXCELLENT. He was able to see me quickly in an emergency and stayed late to get me to a stable condition. Some other staff members could improve their bedside manner.

  May 23, 2023
Everyone was extremely good to me. It was my first visit and everyone made me feel very comfortable

  May 15, 2023
Very specialized problem handled immediately. Extremely qualified physician that I trust completely

  May 11, 2023
On as previous visit all is excellent

  May 9, 2023
I see Dr. Thanos for shots in both eyes & he is as good as previous doctor. His staff are very good as well. I receive a appointment at that time so no calling in.

  May 9, 2023
I asked Dr Thanos if there's anything I can do to help combat my Macular Degeneration (I don't know why I waited so long); he said smoking cessation is about the only thing I can do to help myself. I'm, to date, not strong enough to quit, but I have realized a tendency towards smoking less. That has included a rise in cigars that has me inhale less often. So, between less cigarettes and cigars with less inhaling I'm beginning to crawl towards the goal..... I truly wish I didn't have almost 50 years experience! The entire Devers Team is awesome!!!!!

  May 8, 2023
I feel like I'm going to see old friends when I visit this Clinic.

  May 4, 2023
Dr. T. seemed to care about my situation. He also didn't push me to choose a procedure I wasn't sure about.

Great clinic! Everyone was kind and professional, from Henri at the front desk to Dr. Thanos himself. Everyone was very courteous of my time as well. Dr. Thanos was efficient yet thorough and explained my condition well! Would highly recommend this clinic and physician.

  Mar 30, 2023
My issue wasn't the visit it was trying to get it scheduled. I was told when I left the exam that I would be called for an appointment.After not hearing from anybody for two weeks I called to schedule the appointment for myself because I was having more floaters and I was told by the scheduler that nothing had been input and scheduled for me. Dr. Thanos is fabulous but again it seems like most of the problems with the medical field is in the staff.

  Mar 28, 2023
I love Dr Thanos. He is a highly qualified and intelligent Doctor

Dr.Thanos s a very busy man. When he is with you, he takes the time to thoroughly explain what is going on and answer any questions. He has a warm, professional manner. I first saw him due to a serious eye emergency -- I felt incredibly reassured being under his care.

  Jan 16, 2023
Very good experience

  Jan 10, 2023
This is the pleasantest, best designed & run office of any I know. Well, the stools for seating while the doctor looks into the eye are hard, cold, hard to move, etc. But maybe that's normal!

  Jan 10, 2023
My experience is very good.

  Jan 10, 2023
Thorough exam. He was very professional and knowledgeable about my situation.

  Jan 9, 2023
Very polite people.

  Jan 6, 2023
Dr. Thanos has never wavered from his outrageous knowledge, the strength to do what's right. Consider the trust someone must impact to make getting injections in your eyeballs as part of your normal routine!!! He's awesome!!!

  Jan 6, 2023
The reception was very unprofessional

  Dec 27, 2022
This provider was a retinal eye specialist that I saw for the first time via referral, I was very worried about my eye problems and he definitely helped me understand all I am going through with my eye. He couldn't give me assurance that my problems could be solved, but he definitely helped me understand what was going on and helped me accept it. I was relieved/grateful.

  Dec 27, 2022
I feel good with this visita.

  Dec 13, 2022
