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.

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.

For the amount of time I spent at the office 2 1/4 hours you would think that more than 5 mins would have been spent with doctor. The entire experience put me in a foul mood.

The office runs efficiently and the staff is friendly and informative. Several people see you before you see the Dr. , but they are support staff who do preliminary exams.

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.

The actual visit with the MD was fine, but it took forever to get in to see him. And that was a big issue for me since the patient was my 7 month old daughter. Her appointment was at 1:45pm and she didn't see the doc until about 3:20pm. And I wasn't warned that it was going to be that long...I had to ask if the doc was running on time and was then told no. A bit extreme.

He was condescending; called me by my first name and introduced himself as "Dr. Wisnicki" although I am a) considerably older than he is, b) the wife of a doctor, and c) undoubtedly better educated than he is or will be. He prescribed bifocals without asking me if that was what I wanted, and never used the term "bifocals". He spent as little time with me as possible. I had a 1:00 PM appointment and he called me into his office at 1:50 PM, with no apologies for being late. He is undoubtedly dealing with a lower class, uneducated local constituency, judging from your waiting room population, and was totally insensitive to who he was dealing with. I would never use him again.
