“At a time when making doctor appointments can be pretty difficult, this group has been nothing but accommodating. The staff is friendly and my doctor….Doctor Esposito … is terrific.”
“I’ve always had a good experience at Hudson Valley Eye Surgeons in Fishkill. The staff is always polite and accommodating. I have great trust and confidence in Dr.Palmiero. He is professional, polite, listens to you and you never feel rushed. I think Dr Palmiero is a great Doctor. I’ve always felt very comfortable with his diagnosis and decisions. I trust his judgement. My opinion is the same for Dr. Guerriero. I think he is a great Dr and I am very satisfied with his way of taking care of our problems. I cannot say enough for them both , they are great Drs and the staff is to be commended also, they are wonderful.”
“The best care from Dr. Nichols for my daughter. Thank you!!!”
“Dr. Esposito is a wonderful ophthalmologist. Knowledgeable in her field and very caring.”
“GREAT careing staff, 👍 👌 Dr Shear EXCELLENT so PLEASED with his care.. Couldn’t be HAPPIER!!”
“Dr Pat Michael Palmeiro is probably one of the most approachable, brilliant and honest eye doctor. He does not rush you or brush you off. I had a chance to visit him 3 times this year for a floater in my eye but he helped me to calm Down and handled with professionalism and care. He accommodated my urgent needs and made room in his busy calendar. Wish we can find more Doctors like him.”
“If you have vision problems, this is the place to go. Staff is friendly and the wait time was nothing. Dr. Diamond is the best!!”
“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 hour’s because they had to do a regular eye exam, a visual field test, dilate my eye’s and wait 15 minutes for my eye’s to fully dilate, and also take picture’s of my optic nerve. Getting told that I have no Glaucoma at all sure does make the 2 hour’s of being at your guy’s office worth it. Dr. Palmiero even showed me a picture 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!”

Sandy from Newburgh, NY
“I have been a patient at Hudson Valley Eye Surgeons for a number of years. Dr. Nichols was my surgeon who performed cataract surgery on my right eye. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful it was to wake up the next day and be able to see clearly out of my right eye. My vision in that eye is now 20/20.
Prior to the surgery, I was very apprehensive and frightened. After all, this was my eye and my vision, or non-vision. Dr. Nichols’ bedside manner allowed me to fee totally confident and unafraid. I went into that surgery with the utmost confidence thanks to Dr. Nichols. I cannot wait to have my left eye operated on by the excellent Dr. Nichols. I am looking forward to not having to wear eyeglasses any longer.”
“If you are looking for the best team of caring, professional and exceptional care then you simply go to and stay with this group. Your Eyes are too important to not have the very very best. Special thanks to Dr. Nichols and the amazing support staff. It can be really scary but Jen Audd and my Dr’s here go above and beyond!”

“Dr. Palmiero is a true professional. He is patient, empathetic, and gentle and he has a great chair-side manner. He explained everything and addressed all of my questions and concerns before proceeding with my procedures. His assistants, the front office and schedulers are also very pleasant and patient. I am very happy to have found this group of professionals and completely trust that my eye health is managed by the best in their field.”

“I called the office this morning after having some concerning visual issues last night. I was given an emergency appointment and taken in with very little wait. (Working in the medical field myself I know how busy the Monday after a holiday weekend is and appreciate them seeing me so quickly) Dr. Nichols and his assistant Pam were fantastic. After a thorough eye exam and a lot of patience and explanation of my problem, I left the office feeling so relieved that I was ok and thankful of the great care they provided.”
