  • Why Should You Recommend Pisacano Eye?

    Recommending a colleague says as much about you and your work as it does about the consulting physician. When you refer patients to Drs. Michael and Anthony Pisacano, you are telling your patients that you want them to receive the best medical care available to them. You see them the same way that Pisacano Eye sees their patients — as unique individuals who deserve the very best. Giving your patients access to the finest level of personalized medical care shows your patients how important they are to you.

    The doctors, nurses, and staff at Pisacano Eye put the needs and concerns of their patients first. They understand that when a patient comes to them for their specialized services, they want to see the doctor as quickly as possible. Pisacano Eye addresses these challenges and aims to schedule appointments as quickly as they can. The doctors and staff at Pisacano Eye try their very best to minimize any wait, and are respectful of their patients’ time and needs.

    As you know, practicing good medicine is an art as well as a service. Did you know that everyone eventually develops cataracts, but not everyone needs cataract surgery? Careful evaluation of patient symptoms and lifestyle-needs are key factors in determining the timing of cataract surgery and the type of implant. Similarly, treatment of glaucoma is more than simply lowering the pressure to less than 20. Knowing when to prescribe multiple drops, perform laser treatment, or filtering surgery depends on intelligent consideration of multiple risk factors. Consultations with Drs. Pisacano will give your patients the knowledge and perspective to follow a treatment plan that is best for their individual needs. Drs. Pisacano offer a combined forty-year’s experience, including 40,000 expert cataract surgeries and laser procedures with up-to-the-minute knowledge and technology.
