Dr. Breingan was very friendly and attentive. The office had my prefilled forms and only needed to sign a few papers. Although the doctor didn't see me right at my appointment time, I was seen by the nurse ten minutes before to be ready for him. Great experience. Would definitely recommend.

I have been a patient of Dr.Breingan for several years and I would rate him as one of the best doctors I have ever had. .I can not say enough good things about the doctor and about his staff. He is thorough, explains everything in language you can understand, answers all your questions with great patience and never makes you feel rushed or that you didn't have a thorough exam and testing. And he has a great personality and extremely pleasant. The office staff and technicians are very proffesional and very helpful, patient and pleasant..this is one doctor's appointment I don't mind going to. .I feel that my eyes are under the best care at Dr B..I give him and his staff my highest recommendation.

I never enjoyed too much physical attention to my eyes and was nervous before my appointment. Not anymore, it seems. I experienced Dr. Breingan as sensitive, understanding, non-alarmist with excellent communication skills. At all times he explained to me what was going to happen next and why. Thank you.

Dr. Breingan is very professional. He is obviously experienced: the exam was thorough and quick. Although you have to ask him, he does answer questions in an understandable way. The office staff is pleasant and efficient. I recommend him.

He was just putting drops in my eyes without really explaining them. The office is super dim and seems really old. He may have seemed uninterested in me because he knew he would have to refer me elsewhere because he did not specialize in the issue I was having, but I have still had much, much better experiences elsewhere. Front desk seemed extremely frazzled and tense with each other pointing out each other's mistakes. Just an unprofessional vibe throughout the place. The doctor may be amazing though...he just couldn't do too much but check my eyes for general problems when it came to the issues I am having.
