Verified Patient Reviews
Both the doctor and receptionist we’re knowledgeable and nice. I would recommend everyone to go there.
Excellent service and quality. Dr. Delesio was very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable during my visit, would highly recommend.
Dr. Delesio is a very affable fellow with a friendly disposition. But if you are easily offended, avoid him. I have a thick skin, but he insulted me about my weight, and kept complaining -- in front of the other staff -- that I talk too much. Doctors have to LISTEN to their patients; many have no patience for this. Also, the gallery of Marilyn Monroe posters are soooh creepy. If I were a woman, it would make me feel uncomfortable. Finally, his main concern is to examine you as quickly as possible and then send you to his showroom. He actually said to me when he left me with the salesgirl, "Just buy a damn pair of glasses and shut up." Wildly inflated tags on his frames. Highly unprofessional. He clearly is a competent and knowledgeable doctor in his field. .. What was really wild is that they gave me an invoice, with what my "balance" supposedly is, even though I only expressed an interest in a certain frame and never committed to buy. So, while I liked his jocular nature, I walked out thinking he is running a bit of a scam. Sad, how money corrupts an otherwise good doctor.
I loved it! Although my insurance wasn't covered they were very upfront and honest about it. Dr. Delesio did a great job explaining things so that I understood too :)
Excellent good old fashioned family practice....
Dr. Delesio was great - highly recommend!
Great doctor, very nice. Horrible wait time. If you know that everyone schedules their appointments at 10am on Saturdays, don't book 5 appointments at the same time. Who waits this long for a simple eye exam??
Dr. Delesio is the consummate professional with a very pleasing personality as well.
He was very thorough and explain everything to me, and I did not feel rush
Great! He is knowledgeable and patient.
Very pleasant staff and Doc is informative and sweet.
Great doctor ! He explained your issues and makes you feel comfortable with the anskings.
Always a personable specialized visit, Dr. Delesio is one of the few doctors who not only has years of experience but also cares about his patients and makes them always feel special. The staff is professional and there is no office wait ever.
He's very funny and personable. One of the nicer doctors I've ever had.
The Doctor is very good with the examination of your eyes, he explains everything as he does the examination. I would highly recommend Dr. Delano to anyone looking for a optometrist.
Extremely informative and attentive. I learned so much about the importance of annual eye exams and why. And the importance of preventive measures against glaucoma etc.
They are all very respectful of your time and professional. I did not wait much for my appointment - there is time needed for paperwork so it was filled quite well. Great patient - Dr. interaction and took time to answer all my questions. Great experience. Saturdays are busy days.. Parking is in the rear.
Great eye doc, happy to find a family practice where you know you'll see the one doctor. Very informative and thorough - did not feel rushed nor did i feel like I was there forever.
Dr. Delesio has been my eye care professional for over 25 years. I moved away from the area 15 years ago and still make the long trek to see him. I fully trust him with my eye health care.
Office could use some updating but this guy knows his stuff. Quick and super informative.
Dr. Delesio and hus staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I felt very welcomed in the office, and confident that I was being treated at the highest practice standards. I will definitely return to Dr. Delesio in the future, and recommend my friends and family do the same!
Very caring and one of the best doctors out there! He is truly very kind and cares about all his patients! Very knowledgable and helpful!!
I cant really comment too much about the doctor because they waited until I showed up to tell me that they dont take my insurance. They should have called me when they opened and/or not confirm the appointment and state why instead of me wasting my time. Other than that, they seemed nice.
Very attentive to the patient and explained everything during the exam
It was great. The doctor made me feel very comfortable and kept me smiling through the whole visit.
Dr. Delesio is knowledgeable, kind & patient. He encouraged questions and answered them honestly.
I traveled 30 minutes for my first appointment with Dr. Delesio and I would happily do it again. My primary eye doctor was not taking appointments for the day and I was having problems with my contacts. I was able to easily make an appointment with Dr. Delesio via Zocdoc for later that day. At my appointment, Dr. Delesio was the most informative eye doctor I have ever been to. He told me things about my eyes that no other doctor had took the time to tell me. Dr. Delesio, quickly identified my issue and educated me on how to keep it from continuing. I will be returning to Dr. Delesio in the future!
No issues. Professional.
ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO SEE DR. DELESIO. DOC IS ALWAYS FRIENDLY, PROFESSIONAL AND KNOWLEDGEABLE WITH REGARD TO THE LATEST IMPROVEMENTS IN CONTACT LENSES. THANKS DR. D!
Dr. Delesio was great. Thorough, positive, straightforward. A great, upbeat guy. I'll see him again for sure.
I wish Dr. Delesio was every type of doctor wrapped in one, I love that he takes his time and explains things to you so you can have a better understanding of every question, concern and procedure he's about to do. I would recommend any and everyone to him, he made me feel as though I have been coming to his office for years although this was my very 1st visit. And his staff was very welcoming also, and the cleanliness is spot on too.
Dr. Delesio has been my family's Optometrist for nearly 40 years. I don't trust anyone else with my family's vision. He's treated my nuclear and extended family for generations. He has given us a consistent quality of care, he provides high quality vision care products, he's patient and understanding with my sons on the Autism Spectrum and he encourages the same courtesy from his staff. I look forward to continuing the tradition with my granddaughters.
Dr. Delesio gave me a thorough eye exam using high tech equipment and he was very patient in explaining each process and result. They also have a nice selection of frames for different personal styles, face widths, and budgets. Glad to have found an eye doctor I can rely on for decades to come!

I have been going to Dr. Delesio since I was high school. I will continue to go to him because he is personable, professional,and knows what he is doing.
Dr. Delesio took the time to explain a procedure that I will be having in the near future; after thoroughly explaining the procedure, he asked did I have any questions or concerns. He also recommended that I do some research on the intranet and via YouTube.com. I left his office feeling confident and assured of my decisions. Patricia Jones

I'm a little squeamish about eye exams but Dr Delesio's office was great. They also helped me pick new frames that my insurance covered (she even suggested the exact pair that I already had my eye on). Everyone, especially Dr Delesio, was friendly and helpful.
The entire staff was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend them.
Always a good visit.
Very thorough and honest. Quite simply, one of my best eye exams to date. I felt completely comfortable and was impressed by the state of the art equipment. They were even in process of becoming a paperless office. Very cool.

It was great! I was so impressed I posted a recommendation for his practice on Facebook when I got home.
