Professional Statement

Dr. Criss chose ophthalmology because it allows him to care for a broad range of patients, men and women, young and old. Dr. Criss has many talents, but Union Square Eye Care has other excellent doctors (Dr. Bellante, Dr. Nguyen, Dr. Mehta)that fit contact lenses. Dr. Criss finds improving and protecting patients’ vision to be extremely gratifying and strives to provide quality care that is both comprehensive and personalized. Patient education, and involving those he treats in their own health care decisions, is very important to him. As a comprehensive eye physician and surgeon, Dr. Criss provides complete medical and surgical ophthalmologic care. He has a particular interest in small-incision, “no-shot” cataract surgery, laser procedures for “after-cataract” and glaucoma, correction of eyelid abnormalities, and evaluation of systemic diseases which affect the eye, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

Dr. Criss saw me within 15 minutes of my arrival. While I was being examined he took the time to call my referring physician to discuss my condition. I really appreciated the fact that I was being treated as a person and not just a number. I Highly recommend Dr. Criss.

Dr. Criss was efficient and demonstrated a pleasant attitude. I felt the exam was thorough. The other gentleman that performed an array of eye tests prior to me seeing Dr. Criss was exceptionally professional (sorry I didn't get his name) - he walked through each step in detail and was very nice. The male office check-in employee was very professional. Unfortunately, the female working beside him upon my check-out could use some office training and an update in her professionalism - ie give the patient eye contact when speaking and not be so dismissive.

A bit strange. The doc was nice but he wasn't sure if I was a past patient or not so that told me he didn't look at my records even though I just saw a tech right before hand. He asked the same question that I just spoke to the tech about. On the other hand they have very high tech equipment that I think was really impressive. I think I will go back again but first I need to get my glasses and see how they will work.

I enjoyed my visit even though I don’t like to see Any kind of doctor. Dr. Criss was professional and explained in detail all I needed to know in order to make a decision as to whether or not to have surgery. I took his advice and I’m quite satisfied with it and Dr. Criss. I had to book another doctor in this office only because I couldn’t get through via ZocDoc with Dr. Criss’ appointment booking system.

Dr. Criss is the best! He did my cataract surgery, with great result. He helped me understand a retinal issue I have, and helped me decide what to do about it. He listened carefully and answered all my questions, when I wanted to discuss on line research I did. Highest recommendation!

Dr. Criss really knows his stuff. Very comforting to be treated by someone who seems very knowledgeable and confident. At times feels a little rushed (should throw in a "any questions about anything?" at the end of appointments.)
