My entire experience with VRC was great. Given the nature of the emergency (retinal detachment), they took me in right away and surgery was the next day. If you look up what is entailed in a scleral buckle, you gain an immediate appreciation for the skill these doctor's must have to do this. And, this was my eye and I was told by several ophthalmologists that VRC is the best. I really liked working with Dr Ferrone. Obviously, tops in his field. My eye is healing well and it's amazing that given what went bad, he was able to rebuild my eye and restore my vision to near normal. Thank you!
