Very empathetic, calm and knowledgeable doctor. I was seen by Dr. Dessner himself right away. Explained condition and diagnosis thoroughly, gave his personal email if something worsens on the weekend, gave clear instructions on medication (and suggestions on who carries it).

After a little wait, met with the doctor. Pleasant disposition, excellent diagnosis, thorough understanding of my son's complex eye issues. Took the time to answer my questions and explain treatment. Dr. Dessner was phenomenal.

I came in for a chalazion removal, and though he seemed quirky at first he was very professional about the procedure and answered all my concerns right away. The procedure was very quick and painless! Only weird thing was this one comment he made about adult-themed screenplays, but overall a cool guy.

The wait time was very short. The receptionist was pleasant. Dr. Dessner was friendly and tried to engage my son who was not very talkative that day at all. He attempted to explain my son's condition but in very few words. The visit was quick and brief, not much to say.

So I woke up this morning with a plump eyelid and thought it was not going to be a good day. I saw Dr. Dessner previously for an annual eye exam and figured I would see if he had any openings. Luckily he had an opening during my lunch. I changed my insurance since the last time he's seen me so I reached out to the office. Jessica was able to check my benefits within 2 minutes and said that they accept my policy. The wait was just a few minutes from the time I registered and like before, Dr. Dessner was professional, courteous, and thorough. He evaluated my eye and explained the reason for my condition, walked me through how to resolve it, and how to prevent it in the future. He assured me that the condition will resolve and that I should not be too concerned. I'm not sure I can ask for anything else from the visit! Highly recommended!

I haven't been to the eye doctor in quite some time, the office was gross and old... The doctor explained things but not like my typical eye exam that I've had. After leaving, It felt kinda pointless making the appointment to begin with

I thought he was very thorough. Took time to explain my issues to answer any of my questions. I felt confident in his answers. I would highly recommend him. The waiting room at his Willoughby location is also the waiting room for many other doctors so it's a little crowded but don't be discouraged. I was signed in and seen very quickly.

I booked online with ZocDoc = convenient. There were appointments available very soon, whereas several other opthalmologists I tried via Aetna weren't available for weeks or even months. There was no waiting in the waiting room. The receptionist was polite. And Dr. Dessner thoroughly explained what was going on with my eyes. I didn't have to make a co-pay upfront; the visit was run through my insurance and I got an invoice in the mail. The charges were quite reasonable. Overall, my third visit to Dr. Dessner (the first two were a couple of years ago) was an excellent one.
