Professional Statement

Dr. Jeffrey Taranto, O.D., native of Atlanta, Georgia, received his undergraduate degree at the University of Georgia then completed his Optometric education at the Nova Southeastern College of Optometry in Ft. Lauderdale Florida. We accept all patients who do not have any vision insurance (for routine eye-health evaluations for glasses and contact lens fittings) and we give you an itemized receipt to submit to your medical carrier for reimbursement. Most Optometrists decide to begin practicing directly after Optometry School but Dr. Taranto wanted to further his education in Ocular Pathology and Pediatric Optometry so he continued his studies post Optometry school, completing his residency in Ocular Disease and Special Testing at the SUNY College of Optometry in New York City and the Woodhull Hospital in Brooklyn, New York. During this program Dr.Taranto trained under many Ophthalmologists including a retinal specialist, corneal specialist, Cataract Surgeon, Lasik Surgeon,Pediatric Ophthalmologist, etc. Dr. Taranto believes that this extra training sets him apart from many other eye care practitioners in Los Angeles. He is not only concerned with his patient's vision but also with the health of the entire eye. His up to date technology and 10 years of experience allow him to diagnose and treat almost all infections of the eyes. Dr. Taranto is Board Certified in Optometry, a member of the American Optometric Association and licensed by the state of California. Post residency, Dr. Taranto practiced in Manhattan for six years before moving to Los Angeles to be closer to family and to pursue his lifelong dream of opening his own Optometric practice. Because of all of his experience with kids he considers himself a Pediatric Optometrist.

The doctor was great! This is the best prescription I have ever had. I've always thought that my glasses would be annoying since everything always looked smaller to me But once I got my new prescription I was pleased that everything looked normal and my headaches stopped! Dr. Taranto really took his time to get me the right fit. Thanks doc!

This is my second exam by Dr. Taranto, and I'm still floored by the level of excellence his practice provides. Eye exams are extremely comprehensive, and Dr. T takes the time to explain everything fully, and will even help decipher confusing insurance providers. He's the very best.

Dr Taranto is professional, friendly and very bright. This is the 2nd year I have returned for my annual contact lens and glasses exam. Last year Dr Jeff fitted me for what proved to be the best contact lens I have had, and I have been wearing contacts for 52 years. Nancy is cordial and eager to help with appointments and fitting of eye wear, she is a delightful young professional as well. I highly recommend Dr Taranto and his staff. Joanne

A very personable office that made you feel like you weren't just another patient. They worked to make sure I had no physical discomfort during the eye exam and gave me an accurate and quick check-up. It's a small doctor's office, but that doesn't matter when you're getting top of the line treatment.

(I RECOMMEND) This was my first trip to this doctor for an exam and I gotta say, his practice felt just like home. Dr Jeff Tanranto is a very personable person and will be a straight shooter when it comes to the health of your eye. His staff is just as friendly and we talked about a range of topics while I waited for my eye to dilate. I think the best part is that, this isn't a "franchise" of a business and who doesn't like to support the local businesses. Overall, my appointment went very smoothly and I even got a few trial pair of contacts to hold me over till I order my own.

He is an amazing doctor. He takes the time to explain everything to me. He also remembered me from the previous year which was something! Although I like going to him and like him as a Doctor, his staff is not as amazing. One of staff helped me pic out glasses and she was very friendly but the receptionist is Kurt and rude both on the phone and in person. If you don't mind that, then great place inside and out.
