Specialties

Dr. Alfred C Marrone has the following 2 specialties

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

  • Plastic Surgery

    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
    The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

Went to see Dr. Marrone for partial lid upper blepharoplasty on both eyes. He's a terrible surgeon. He sewed my left eye too tight and took out too much skin. Immediately after he put the last stitch in my left eye I told him it felt much tighter than my right eye. He said it was swelling I had to tape my left eye down for months at night after the surgery because it wasn't closing and would drift open at night. But what's worse is that my eyesight in my left eye never returned to the way it was before the surgery, because I drove that night 1 and 1/2 hours after the surgery into the headlights and taillights, and since my left eye was sewn too tight and still paralyzed by the anesthesia, it could not blink or close against the lights. Dr. Marrone said it would be OK to drive home after the surgery because the surgery was not going deep. He was rude on my post-op visits as I continued to complain that my left eye was too tight, there was a popping noise in it when I raised my lids, that there was a diagonal scar on my left eye AND that eyesight was not returning to normal. He said my eyes were just dry. I had a very hard time getting my file from him. He would only allow the first 3 pages to be copied and withheld the last page from me for two weeks. I am reporting him to the Medical Board on these and other issues.

He was my second opinion and SO glad I went to him! First dr wanted to do unneeded surgery and Dr. Marrone instead did a relatively minor surgery that repaired all without permanent scarring and MUCH less expensively.
