When I finally got too see the doctor he wasn't very greetable and he rush pretty much I guess he had to leave after 1 I'm assuming because my appointment was suppose to had been 1:15 pm and I got a call around 10:20 am today if I would like to reschedule my time to 11:15 am because the doctor was leaving early it was a horrible experience I would not recommend anyone to come here. He said it was nothing he can do for me so I will get a second opinion. Because I felt he rushed and I felt uncomfortable with him he was very nice to other patients and when it got too me he was just flat and disappointed he just look If like he was ready to go honestly. But I won't come back ever I didn't feel welcome at all

I saw someone for one type of eye exam within 10 minutes of my arrival, had my eyes dilated, then saw Dr. Wisnicki about an hour and 20 minutes after I arrived for about 10 minutes. The first exam was a bit confusing and caused me to see double a few times, and I had not had that experience before. Dr. Wisnicki answered all my questions and was as usual very pleasant.

Let's just get this out of the way: Yes, the wait is insane. Truly bonkers. But for me, a person who has struggled with strabismus my entire life, I'd probably wait twice as long to get my vision corrected. And that's what Dr. Wisnicki did for me. He performed surgery on my left (esotropic) eye and by the time I woke up from surgery I could already tell my vision was different. It is a relief to drive, watch TV, hold conversations, and have my photo taken without worrying about my eye (or working to try to achieve monocular vision). Thanks so much, doc.

Dr. Wisnicki fixed me! I was walking around feeling dizzy all the time, until he figured out that I had hypertropia in my left eye. Dr. Wisnicki corrected the problem surgically with a perfect result. It took about 3 months to fully feel the difference and adjust after surgery. Strabismus is gone now and I can walk down the avenues without having to shut one eye, I can drive long distances again and watch movies without strain. I am glad I opted for the surgery after diagnosis. For a while I had prism lenses and those just mess with your brain, especially, if hypertropia is diagnosed later in life. I was in my late 40ies at the time.

Appointment was 2:45. I still was not seen at 4:00 and there were two patients ahead of me. This is always the case at this office whether you are the first appointment or scheduled in the middle of the day. I will never return.

Can't say enough about this amazing human being. We have seen Dr. wisnicki since the early 90's, moved out of state for ten years and back. There's just no comparison. His professionalism and bedside manner is of excellence. I'm just glad to be able to have this doctor again in our family. Absolutely the best according to my adult kid, teenager, and the rest of us.

Dr. Wisnicki is great and his colleagues are also great. The wait continues to be unacceptable. If there becomes one reason why I would stop seeing Dr. Wisnicki is because, I cannot block out sufficient time given the wait that always takes place.

Dr. Wisnicki is a straight-forward, funny doctor, and is thorough with his diagnosis and treatment. My biggest complaint is the wait time. I've visited him three times, and all three times, the wait has been more than one hour.

He was great and his assistant was also lovely but the wait time was pretty outrageous. That would be the only reservation I would have about recommending him to someone else. With a 1.5 and 3.5 yo, the waiting was pretty miserable.
