Dr. Thomas P Pappavaselio has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Kind and thorough

Worth the wait!

Highly recommend Dr Pappavaselio! He took the time to learn about me and my eye problem. He didn't just diagnose and treat my issue, he is helping me to figure out why I have this issue. It is refreshing to see a doctor that goes the extra mile to look at the big picture, not just deal with the problem in front of him.

Five Stars

An amazing Dr. that is in the "people" business! He is thorough and thinks outside of the box. He thinks beyond "eye's" and for me, suggested a gluten test, which has improved my over all health and has literally changed my life. There's no other Dr. I know that would take the time and CARE enough to approach total body health. AMAZING man!! The staff is kind and attentive. I highly recommend Thomas Pappavaselio and his staff.

Very Impressed!

Dr. Pappavaselio is caring, engaging and listens closely. First he offered good advise based on my history (which means he read it!). After examination, he acted immediately, suspecting a problem. What I found to be most impressive was...Dr. P called me personally within two hours to give me the results of my tests, called a specialist on my behalf (which got me in the door right away)and then called me back several days later to follow up on the results. I have never encounted a Doctor like this and I've been to many!I need to add one more thing...the staff is great! They saw the need to get me in quickly...and they did just that. They are kind and considerate and make the visit pleasurable. So, what more can one ask for?? I highly recommend Thomas P. Pappavaselio, M.D. and his staff at the Tallman Eye Associates!
