About Hudson Valley Eye Surgeons, PC

 
 
Hudson Valley Eye Surgeons, PC was founded by Andrew Dahl, M.D. and Eric Brocks, M.D. over 30 years ago in Fishkill, New York, as a way to provide access to a Park Avenue caliber Ophthalmology Practice without stepping outside the Hudson Valley. It has since achieved an outstanding reputation in the region for its dedicated and professional approach to eye care, so much so, that physicians in the region have come to rely on our clinical expertise for their patients, as well as for their own families. We have also become an entry point for patients into the health care system, as patients have realized that we have the ability to diagnose life-threatening diseases by examining the eyes.

"Hands down the best group ever. I see Dr. Palmiero and he is honestly the best eye doctor I have ever seen. I even told him at my last appointment that I always look forward to seeing him. I'm a type 1 diabetic and when I first saw him and told him that he mentioned to me that he specializes in Glaucoma. Knowing that I won't have to see a different eye doctor if I ever do end up with Glaucoma sure does make me very happy. So far I have no signs of Glaucoma at all. Even do my last appointment was almost 2 hours's because they had to do a regular eye exam, a visual field test, dilate my eye's and wait 15 minutes for eye's to fully dilate, and also take picture's of my optic nerve and what it looked like this year and last year and he told me that it hasn't changed at all. The rest of your staff are also extremely wonderful and very helpful."
