Dr. DeLesio is fantastic. He is thorough, knowledgeable and patient. He diagnosed an issue I had with wearing eyeglasses that other doctors were not able to. He knows his stuff! He also answered my many questions in a very respectful andinformative way. His exam was extremely thorough, and he did not make me feel like he was rushing me. I was extremely happy with my visit, and I highly recommend Dr. DeLesio. Also, Michelle, his assistant is great.

Dr. Delesio was wonderful! He was quick, efficient, and knowledgable. He informed me of all available options for my contacts and listened to any concerns I had. There was no wait time, the prices are reasonable, and the receptionist was verykind when I called her to tell her I would be a few minutes late due to traffic. With my previous optometrist, it felt as if he wanted to sell me the most expensive products. With Dr. Delesio, I never received that impression. Will be going here from now on!

Very glad I visited Dr Dennis the first time after my Lasik. I had lot of dry eyes for almost 2-3 months. Couldn't work for more than an hour before the laptop or go out due to extreme dryness. After visitingDr Dennis, he suggested me with eye drops to use for a couple of weeks which helped my eyes to get back to normal state. Very thankful to him. I visit him every 6-8 months for a general checkup. Highly recommend him.

I have been wearing glasses and/or contacts since I was 8 years old. I have to say that out of all of the appointments I went to, this one was the most pleasant experience. I don't usually do reviews, but Ihad such a great experience, so I had to recommend. Dr. Delesio is extremely knowledgeable in his field. He performed important, thorough testing that I hadn't had done before, but that I should have had done in years past. He was very amiable. His office staff was also friendly, helpful, and seamless to work with. The office was very clean. They also have a pretty good selection of glasses. I would highly suggest this office for your annual vision exam.

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 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 highquality 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.

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 whyinstead of me wasting my time. Other than that, they seemed nice.

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 toeasily 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!
