While I didn’t see Dr. Deluca until around 4:45 for a 3:45 appointment, his bedside manner was excellent, and both heand his staff were friendly, patient, conversational, and informative. I could overhear that he had a few unexpectedly prolonged appointments before me, so the wait is understandable, and one of his assistants did do a prelim with me at my scheduled time. Despite being seen at the end of the day, Dr. Deluca took the time to make sure I understood his findings and how and when we should follow up. Given that being seen on time in NYC is a rarity in general, I can overlook the lateness due to the excellent standard of care, and I will be back in the future.

The wait time was not the office's fault. It was the fault of the central office that booked the appt and never read the notes and just booked it as a follow up and not a procedure!

Dr. DeLuca has been very instrumental in my eye care. He had detected a nevus "“freckle of the eye,” several years back, which I now see a specialist for, and monitors my high pressure which could lead to glaucoma. He is very thorough and gentle.

Quick diagnosis. Very kind and gentle as I'm a blinker! Copay was more than I thought it would be with Oscar Simple Gold, but worth figuring out what was wrong with my eyes. I'll definitely be back. I had an earlyappointment, spoke to a technician right away, went back to waiting room for 5 minutes, then saw the doctor. In and out in an hour.

Seen Dr. Deluca twice, after not visiting an ophthalmologist in 15 years or so. His office and staff have been great on the phone, and are very efficient. I also got email reminders for my appointment and a personal phone callthe day before my appointment to confirm my insurance details ahead of time. Dr. Deluca gets straight to the point without rushing things, is definitely thorough, and did a great job of explaining things and answering my questions. Definitely planing to continue seeing him if the need ever comes up.

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. Over the past two months, I had three procedures done by Dr. Deluca in order to resolve the same issue in my eye and today the issue remains unresolved. Also I waited 90minutes before I was seen for my first procedure because they double booked the room that they needed to use for the procedure. I am now going to see a different doctor but in order to get my medical records released, I am being charged for the records to be mailed to me because this office does not provide an option to receive the information electronically.

Dr. DeLuca is both professional, amiable and kind. I was late for my appointment and assumed I would have to reschedule (I also felt awful for having wasted anyone's time and would have understood if it was not possible to seeme that day.) The whole office was incredibly forgiving and kind, and while I did have a shortened exam, I was seen and it was still thorough enough for my needs. This, with enough time for a few brief questions to be answered and some benevolent witty patient/dr. banter. Thank you, office of kind professionals!
