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

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.
