I was seen quickly and the doctor was able to efficiently diagnose my issue and prescribe what I needed. He also asked me questions about other eye issues I have in my medical history, even though I hadn't come in for that, and talked to me about options (and gave me a referral to a specialist) I had written off long ago thinking that it wasn't viable for me.

Despite a very busy day, Dr. DeLuca's staff saw me in a reasonable amount of time. When it came time for my appointment, Dr. DeLuca's was well-versed with my eye history and why I was seeing him again. His support staff was thorough and polite. It was the end of the year, and I'm sure the crowd was due to last-chance-to-spend flexible spending dollars ... but I was very impressed with the staff, the clarity of explanation for everything that I was being tested on, and ultimately with the prognosis and follow-up.

Very nice staff and doctor, but appointments are so brief, the doctor doesn't fully explain the treatment to the patient, (he does give you directions about taking the prescription, but not the reason for a particular prescription, and why its important.) I also wonder if he doesn't favor the newest and most expensive drugs over the tried and true?

Dr. Deluca was very patient, very clear in his explanations, and provided as much information as he could about the conditions I was there to have diagnosed. He didn't do any tests that were overkill, but was very thorough in everything he did. I don't wear glasses, so I don't have regular eye exams, but I can't imagine finding a better eye doctor when I do need one!

Dr. DeLuca was very thorough during the visit. He explained everything in a lot of detail, and I learned a lot during the visit. Everyone was very helpful at the front desk, and I was seen within 15 minutes. I would definitely recommend him. I saw Dr. DeLuca because of dry eyes after having Lasik eye surgery at another center. He told me it was very common for people to have dry eyes after Lasik surgery (which is why more people are doing Lasek surgery now). He developed a very thorough plan to treat me dry eyes.

Loved him! My third ophthalmologist in the past 2 years. From the minute he introduced himself, he was personable and we established a quick rapport. Extremely knowledgeable, perceptive to what I needed, cost conscious, and I could not be gladder that I can stop looking for an optho that I like.

Friendly staff. Wait was about 25 minutes, which was a bit longer than the 15 minutes they had indicated. However, once i explained that I was in a rush, they moved right to the issue at hand and resolved it with an efficient exam, consultation, and prescription. Dr. Deluca has a friendly demeanor and explains everything he is doing and recommending thoroughly. He also sent the prescription in to my pharmacy before I had even left his office. I would certainly return for any eye-related issues.
