Dr Thanos is the best ophthalmologist I've ever seen. He is a highly trained doctor researcher and surgeon. There are things I learned from him that have never been shared with me before. What a blessing his choice of ophthalmology is for me and my good luck becoming his new patient.

I was seen right away at the end of the day for a retinal tear. The care I received was excellent. I was nervous about having laser surgery on my eye, but was made to feel reassured and comfortable with the procedure. A huge thanks to all involved.

I have no problem with Dr. Thanos and his staff. They are caring and very professional. It's the hospital (Good Samaritan) and the receptionist that are receiving very low marks. The hospital is a nightmare, and very difficult to navigate. Once the correct location was found, one receptionist was too busy joking with other staff to do her job. As I needed to come back, I was able to speak with a different receptionist who was courteous and kind. I WILL NOT RETURN TO GOOD SAM UNLESS I AM AT DEATH'S DOOR AND HAVE NO OTHER OPTION.

my primary Medicare advantage would not cover the surgery. that stopped the prep before hand. Dr Thanos had such concern for my condition he put forward extreme effort to get the help I needed. This level of dedication is exceptional. Even though Legacy was not the place the surgery was performed, his effort on my behalf is very much appreciated. the world would be a better place if everyone worked to this level of dedication. Thank you.

Dr. Thanos treated me on [day removed] at Good Sam's ER. He followed up on [day removed]! He always made the time to meet. He took time to explain my eyes health & ongoing recovery. He helped me relax as he took care of my detached retina & macular. HE'S AMAZING!!

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!
