Dr. John W Lombardo has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • 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.

Totally disrespected!

Do not go there .... they have no respect for long-time patients. After making an appointment over a month ago I got there this morning for my 8 AM appointment. The girl at the front desk asked for my insurance card and who was my primary doctor. Three other patients came in shortly after me and went through the same routine. Then the girl asked me to cover up to the desk. She explained to me that they like to verify your insurance before you see the doctor. Then she said she was having a hard time getting through to my insurance carrier Blue Cross/Blue Shield. She said they were NOT accepting their Tax ID #. So she was going to have to let the 3 people who came in after me to go before me. Because they were having a hard time, I was the one who was going to be penalized. I told her I have been coming here for well over 10 years and that I was 100% covered and met my deductible for the year. But that doesn't seem to matter any more. No one has any respect for anyone any more. Needless to say I am NEVER going back there. You shouldn't either.

Great Doctor

Dr Lombardo is thorough, caring and personable. He gives an excellent eye exam, and is extremely pleasant to deal with. The staff are also very nice and accomodating, as well.
