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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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 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 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.
