Professional Statement

Dr. Frank Accardi has been a practicing ophthalmologist in New York City since 1985. He completed residencies in both ophthalmology and internal medicine, as well as a postgraduate fellowship year in ophthalmology at SUNY Downstate Medical School.

For ten years he delivered a series of formal lectures in order to fulfill his responsibility for preparing resident ophthalmologists to take the certification exams of the American Board of Ophthalmology in the section on Clinical Optics and Refraction. This lecture material dealt with the information that was the very basis of the later enormous interest in the surgical correction of refractive errors, first in laser vision correction and then in cataract surgery, including multifocal and astigmatism correcting toric intra-ocular lens implants. The vast majority of Dr. Accardi's private practice over the years has been associated with The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, the oldest specialty hospital in the Western Hemisphere and perennially in the top ten of eye programs, as ranked by U.S. News and World Report.

He is Senior Attending Surgeon at the infirmary and has made available to his patients whenever necessary consultants of every sub-specialty of ophthalmology, many of whom enjoy national reputations in their areas of expertise. Dr. Accardi personally performs all his intra-ocular surgeries at this excellent institution. Dr. Accardi maintains a special clinical interest in the intersection of systemic and ocular disease and modern cataract surgery, along with the correction of near-sightedness, astigmatism and other refractive errors.Our practice is equipped with all the necessary equipment to diagnose cataracts, glaucoma, external eye conditions and the vast spectrum of eye diseases.

I was at first slightly put off by the office..the front is an eyeglass store & the doctors offices are in the back. Don't be put off by this. Because Dr Accardi is great. I would definitely recommend Dr Accardi. He has a wonderful bedside manner. Office staff is great which makes a huge difference. This is the perfect combo.

Dr Accardi listened to all the eye issues i've had over the last 2 months to help me piece together what's been going wrong. He gave me confidence that he knows what the issue is and that we'll get it fixed soon.

Dr. Accardi was friendly, and I felt like he gave me all the information I needed about my vision. His staff was also friendly and helpful. The only downside was that I was in the office for almost 2 hours for a routine check-up & contact lens prescription. Some of the time was because I got my eyes dilated, but there was a lot of waiting.

Dr. Accardi was nice but took only 5-10 minutes with me. I had a big eye stye on my eyelid and I was expected Dr. Accardi to help me get rid of it. I got to his office and I told his that I didn't need to do an eye exam because I already did it somewhere else and have a new glasses. Only reason I came to his office was to get rid of the eye stye by draining or a steroid shot. They still did my eye exam and charged me a lot of money for that anyway even though it was not the reason I came to see him. Then, when he saw me he told me that I could just use the warm compress that I already knew and had been using the warm compress for almost 2 weeks. I ended up going to see another eye doctor!

I have been seeing Dr. Accardi for 13 years. He is a marvelous doctor. I can talk to him and he talks to me. He is a great professional. His office is as clean as a pin and his staff are warm, but professional and thorough. I love the technology and expertise I encounter when I visit his place. It's a joy to go there for my eye care. He is gentle and consistent. Great doctor.

I didn't care much for having to fill out forms at the office after doing it on ZocDoc.

It was terrible- rushed, inaccurate, and a waste of my time. I came for a new glasses prescription and he examined my eyes for a whole 2 minutes before hastily writing out a completely wrong prescription for me. He didn't even test with different lenses ie. "One or Two" more than twice! Of course upon getting the new glasses the prescription he wrote me was COMPLETELY wrong and I can barely see out of them, so I'll have to go to a doctor who actually cares about his patients and spend even more money to get a new prescription.

The doctor was great and had a wonderful sense of humor. The office was a little chaotic--a glasses/lens place shares the front of the office, and there were many phone calls and tasks all coming into the woman at the front desk--who handled all like a pro--but the pace was a bit more than I'm used to hearing for a doctor's office reception area. All personnel were very professional, efficient, knowledgeable, and had pleasant personalities. NOTE: The ZocDoc appointment alert was not received by the office prior to my arrival. The office handled it professionally and were accommodating.

This place seemed really efficient. When I had to wait 10 minutes for my pupils to dilate, they took in other patients, but I never waited more than 5 minutes in each room before being seen. A routine exam requires 4 different steps, but the office was very well organized.
