Patient reviews for Dr. Dennis J. Delesio
I have literally been a patient since about 10 years old and are now close to 50, Dr. Delesio is one of the few doctors around that truly cares about his patients.
Great dr with a lot of experience takes time to explain things
Fantastic Doctor, whole staff was pleasant and Dr. Delesio made me feel like i’d i own him for years. would recommended 10/10. great experience
Walked in, filled out my forms, and was seen 2 minutes after handing them in. Dr. Delesio was fantastic! Extremely knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I wear glasses occasionally and was only in for an annual eye exam, but the service was great! I highly recommend him.
It was great
I’ve been seeing dr Delesio for 30 years now and wouldn’t go to anyone else, that should say a lot about him and his wonderful staff!!!
Excellent service and explained about my vision and prescribed what is best for me.
Dr. Delesio is the consummate professional while at the same time being a caring and engaging human being. I so appreciate that he takes the time to answer my questions and continues to educate me about my eye health. He recently referred me to a cataract surgeon and I could not have been happier with the referral and the results. I was happy to return to Dr. Delesio for my continuing care as he has my complete trust.
The visit was wonderful. I was seen promptyat my appointment time. Dr. Delesio was very consultative and let me know what is test was for.
The MD and the staff were great and very helpful.
The doctor was very informative! No wait time. I definitely would recommend this doctor.

Great Doctor. Professional and Nice

He was very through and patient with all of my questions.
Great guy. Great staff and pleasant atmosphere
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 and informative 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.
Very Personal , professional and caring Doctor
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 very kind 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!
Dr. Delesio is so incredibly helpful, communicative and understanding! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an eye doctor!!
Approachable, attentive, informative.
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 visiting Dr 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.
Wonderful visit, very informative really learned a lot. Was seen right away.
Great first visit. Dr. D was on time and very thorough.
I am a long term client of Dr. Delesio's and drive out of my area to see him because I think that highly of his professionalism, skill, and demeanor.
Very nice man!
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 I had 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 visit, so nice and explained everything!
Excellent doc. I’ve been his patient over30+ years. Highly skilled, very understanding & great bedside manner.
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.
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.
Great! He is knowledgeable and patient.
He was very thorough and explain everything to me, and I did not feel rush
Very pleasant staff and Doc is informative and sweet.
Great doctor ! He explained your issues and makes you feel comfortable with the anskings.
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.
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.
