"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."
