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.

The doctor was great. No questions about that. The receptionist, however, has an attitude problem that is out of this world. Acts like picking up a phone and answering some questions is above her. Doesn't even have the courtesy to even let me finish before she hangs up. Are you serious? If it wasn't for her attitude, I might not even have left a review (people tend to leave review when they have a bad experience).

Dr. Accardi is an accomplished professional eye doctor. He is very thorough and makes you feel at ease through the otherwise anxiety ridden eye examination. He has very good bedside manners and makes the patient thoroughly comfortable. He does a thorough follow through exam and advises you on the things to watch out for so your condition does not worsen. I was referred to him by my brother and I have already referred my wife to him. A real family doctor, one of the best!

This was my first visit to Dr. Acardi, and the entire experience left me with a good impression of the doctor, the staff, and the office. Everyone there was friendly, courteous, professional, and thorough. Dr. Acardi was very likable. The office space was attractive and conveniently located. I plan to become a regular patient.

Both he and his associate are unprofessional and rude! He had little patience and practically scolded me for taking too long to provide details from decades ago. He should pay attention to what his patients tell him and his associate. In the past, I have encountered other physician's on Zoc Doc whose character has been less than stellar. I will refrain from choosing a doctor from this Web site.

He has been my eye doctor for 17 years. I first went to see him when he was on Gramercy Park - then NOMAD and now Grand Central. The nicest guy and a very knowledgeable physician. He treats the older adults in his practice with kindness and patience. God bless you Dr. Accardi!

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.
