This is not my thing, but I have not experienced such a polite and efficient office, of any kind, in a very long time. There's always one glitch. The environment is inviting, the staff very pleasant, mannerly, and accommodating and the medical service excellent. A doctor who listens. Kudos to all!

I did not like my appointment witn Dr Dessner. He’s extremely pretentious and was crewing gum while treating me. He seems to be a good doctor but I didn’t like his attitude.

It’s not easy to find a pediatric ophthalmologist , after a long drive then finally got there , the Dr wasn’t just take a look then say everything is ok then send u home , nope , he checked my baby son patiently and used his profession to diagnose him ,

No bad comment about the Doctor but the housekeeping person came in during my interview with the assistant. Being that this conversation is supposed to be confidential, I was surprised the assistant did not ask the cleaning person to leave. This cleaning person too was pretty oblivious about doctor office conduct.

Everyone at his office that I spoke to was top notch. The staff was very polite and knowledgeable. They had paperwork ready for me, all I had to do was sign. My eye was injured and immediately it was numbed for my comfort. Dr. Dessner himself was great. He put me right at ease and fixed my issue quickly. I will return to this office for my yearly recommended exam because of the positive experience I had today.

Dr Dessner is super detailed and caring. I went to him in an emergency (I had extreme pain and uncontrollable tearing in my left eye) and he made a huge difference. He prescribed meds to provide immediate relief, clearly explained the source of the problem, and switched me to daily contacts to prevent the problem in the future. Highly recommend!

Dr. Dessner was very helpful. I saw him today to get a second opinion for a recurring eye infection, and he was so much more thorough than my first doctor. He explained the problem, told me what I can do to help prevent it, and prescribed a medication (the other doctor did not). I really liked his calm demeanor. He was attentive, gave good eye contact, and answered my questions thoroughly. He even offered more information before I could ask. The wait time was about 25 minutes, which was the only negative of this visit. Overall a very positive experience.

Dr. Dessner and staff were very pleasant and professional. My forms from ZocDoc were already printed and waiting for me upon arrival. Dr. Dessner was very knowledgeable and provided an extensive examination with the courtesy to ask whether or not I was driving in order to dilate my pupils. He took his time to explain his diagnosis, provided solutions and reassured me that it was nothing to be worried about. Overall, I had an excellent visit and would recommend him to anyone seeking a great doctor!
