I've been going to my optometrist for years. Always professional, courteous, friendly and pleasant to visit in a good location. I have my annual checkup for my eyes. I'm in great hands!

We've been coming here for a couple of years now and this was the first time that we had to wait for such a long time. Dr. Bellante is definitely worth the wait though.

I waited over a half hour to get an initial eye exam, and then another half hour to see a doctor, when all I wanted was to get a simple contact lens prescription. They also dilated my eyes without explaining tome what they were going to be doing and now I have to miss work for several hours since I can’t see clearly. Would not recommend.

The office was crowded and a bit noisy, but they were treating a lot of people. Office was run efficiently, the preliminary screenings were very professional, and the doctor gave me a very detailed explanation of my eye health and conditions, and what to expect.

I would never go to anyone else now that I’ve found Dr. Bellante. She is clear and professional in her communication, always considerate, and goes the extra mile to make her patients comfortable. And has a great sense of humor. Ihave a slight phobia of eye-related matters and with Dr. Bellante I am now able to wear contacts. She’s amazing!

Dr. Bellante and her staff were wonderful. I was seen quickly (first thing in the morning on a weekday), and the care that she provided was excellent. I've already shared her information with 2 colleagues looking for an eye doctor, and will do so happily again in the future!

My wait was highly unusual as Dr. Belante is normally very prompt. The scheduling office double books her of late and the issue should be taken up with staff management. Dr. Bellante is a very professional, competent doctor who is also very warm. I would highly recommend her services. Jeanine

I have been going to Dr. Bellante for over 15 years for annual check ups. She has fitted me with specialized contacts and I don't have to be concerned about reading or long distance vision. She is professional and efficient. Thisoffice is also set up to do all specialized tests necessary for more than just routine eye care. Highly recommended.

Dr. Bellante takes the necessary time to perform a thorough eye exam, and to answer any questions you may have, without making you feel rushed. This sometimes means you will wait a little longer than ideal for your appointment to begin,but is definitely worth the tradeoff. She also handles complex cases wonderfully. I completely trust and respect her expertise and professionalism. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
