What our patients have to say

WE ARE RELIABLE & TRUSTED
  • “I have found every person I meet at the office to be very kind, considerate, and professional.”

    Sister Marie Keating, General Practice
  • “It is our pleasure to have Dr. Del Negro as our eye doctor. He is an exceptional doctor, very professional, kind, polite and always transparent in his advice. We find him very approachable and always pleasant to deal with. We always tell our friends that we have one of the best eye doctors.”

    Jujesti Chandra, Dr. Del Negro
  • I love Dr. Senft and all his associates. I have had numerous eye issues and emergency visits and have always been accommodated quickly and in a friendly manner. Thank you!

    Connie Portella, General Practice
  • “Dr. Shah is very professional, patient and detail–oriented, making sure I have the best fit and vision. She is knowledgable and informative, and the exam was thorough and friendly.”

    Dr. McTaggart, Keratoconus Lens Fitting
  • I am very happy with the services provided, particularly my cataract lens replacement last year. Both the professional medical services and the back-office administrative services are well above average.

    Dave Birch, Cataracts
  • “Dr. Senft has truly given me the gift of sight. I can’t believe a 15-minute session has completely changed my life… Dr. Senft went above and beyond to take care of me. He even came in on his day off to be there for my one-week post-op checkup. That meant a lot to me.”

    Kara Ireland, Bladeless LASIK
  • He’s happy to report his vision acuity after surgery: “Right eye = 20/20! A home-run!” Most importantly, he now feels safe behind the wheel and can watch TV without getting annoyed: “No more near misses driving at night, can read road signs, and able to scroll the TV ticker tape at the bottom of the TV screen.”

    M. Marino, Cataract Surgery
  • My ‘first’ visit assured me of the great care and kindness I received from Drs. Blades and Jergens during the past several years! Thank you for your future care!

    Carolyn McKinley, General Practice
  • “The glasses prescribed for me by Dr. Senft on my last visit are the greatest gift. I am seeing clearly for the first time in years. Thank you so much. I am delighted.”

    Kathleen Ronnie, General Practice
  • “Thank you for being so understanding and helpful when I was late for my appointment. Rescheduling my appointment for the same day, just an hour later, was most appreciated!”

    Juliane Rael, General Practice
  • “As always, your office is a model of professional, efficiency, and friendliness. I wish ALL medical offices were run this way. Thank you so very much.”

    Lynne Truex, General Practice
  • “Dr. Glatman has been wonderful. The next morning I was watching TV with my glasses on as usual and had to flip up my glasses so I could read the print at the bottom of the TV screen. It was amazing! It’s definitely an adjustment—but a good one. I was used to wearing glasses for distance all those years. I keep reaching for my glasses on my head or the tip of my nose, but don’t need them anymore.”

    Maryellen Sullivan, Cataract Surgery
  • “A very smooth running operation. Very impressed with the technology you are using. Thanks for your service.”

    John Lubisco, General Practice
  • “Always a pleasure… I’m happy with the results of my procedure, as well as delighted by your staff.”

    Janice Rocco, General Practice
  • The visit was professional, timely and informative. We are almost 20 year patients and the relationship has been a very positive one. Support staff is always ready to make each visit pleasant and less stressful. Thanks again!

    Joanne & Fred Grygiel, General Practice
  • “Dr. Wiedeman is committed to changing/adjusting treatment plans for the best possible outcome with rapid results. Very dedicated and follows up to make sure that my eye issue is resolved. Dr. Wiedeman sincerely cares about her patients and listens to her patients’ concerns. She is caring and her utmost concern is the best care for her patients—she explained my conditions carefully, making sure I understood the diagnosis and treatment plan.”

    Adrienne Cena, General Practice
  • My 15 year old son had an appointment. He was there for the 1st time. I am an existing patient. Staff are professional. The office is high-tech and very clean. The exam was thorough and easy. We wouldn’t go anywhere else!

    Linda Courey-Degnan, General Practice
  • Del Negro & Senft Eye Associates are nothing short of outstanding. I travel from my home in Yonkers, New York, via bus and train – as I can no longer drive – to be evaluated by them, as I have been for the past decade. I am very, very, very fortunate and thankful for these fine doctors and staff. With deepest gratitude.

    Deb Kelly, General Practice
  • “My experience at my last two appointments with your practice was excellent. The personnel I encountered were professional, courteous, and friendly.”

    William Nowik, General Practice
  • “It was AAA…no real wait, Dr. liked what he saw!!! What more can a patient want?”

    Ruth Machover, General Practice
  • “Dr. Shah’s personality and easy spirit relaxed me the moment she walked into the room. I have mentioned the office and doctor to others and will continue to do so.”

    Louise Messer, General Practice
  • “It was getting to the point where I felt like I had to use tape to hold my eyes open. Before the procedure I fell asleep more easily because my eyes were so downcast. My friends would often joke with me, ‘Wake up!’ and I would say, ‘I AM awake!’ They were also pleased with the results.”

    Roseann Holland, Blepharoplasty
  • I am always happy with my annual visit to your office. The staff and doctors are all very caring and competent.

    Elizabeth De Maio, General Practice

The office is very organized and the staff is focused, attentive, and efficient. Most importantly, I trust them completely. Their efforts are greatly appreciated. I praise them whenever someone asks for a recommendation.”

    Mary Henderson, General Practice
  • “Everyone is so nice and helpful. Dr. Senft was very thorough and explained everything in a manner I could understand. Thank you everyone!”

    Louise Olivera, General Practice
  • “I’m very, very pleased! I can’t believe the difference in what I can now see without glasses.”

  • “Dr. Del Negro – I wanted to let you know that you gave me the gift of clear vision when two other doctors failed. I can now drive at night and am much more comfortable driving during the day. I am thrilled with my new glasses. Thank you and the staff at your office.”

    Betty Udelsman, General Practice
  • “In as few words as possible I would have to say I’m extremely pleased with Del Negro & Senft Eye Associates. The entire staff is extremely caring and professional and the results from my two surgeries went beyond expectations. As I told Dr. Senft, ‘If all of the different doctors I see gave me results like he did I’d be a very happy man.’”

    R. Thomas, Dr. Senft
  • Thanks to each and every person who cared for me during, before, and after my cataract surgery. Donna (Neptune) was so efficient and helpful prior to each surgery. Mike, my driver, to and from my home. All the clerks, nurses, and doctors who made each procedure a comfortable and reassuring one. I also appreciate the service of the optician. Your office staff is the epitome of A-1 service – a five-star operation.

    Virginia Yocum, General Practice
  • “Dr. Shah has treated me a number of times for dry eye syndrome. She is so efficient and professional. Last time I had my appointment time mixed up with the wrong day and I was so happy she did not send me away, but told me to wait and she would see me. I have been seen at both the Neptune and Brick offices. Both staffs from each office were courteous.”

    Judy Linton, Dry Eye Syndrome
  • “I have always had great respect for Dr. Del Negro and his staff. He has been my eye physician since I relocated to this area 19 years ago. My laser procedure in May 2016 produced excellent results. I highly recommend Dr. Del Negro.”

    Jack Eisngle, Laser Procedure
  • “My experience for a number of years has always been awesome. The staff is efficient and caring, and the doctors are great!”

    Jackie Libertelli, General Practice
  • “I am extremely pleased with the results of my cataract surgery and the placement of a Toric lens. My vision is nearly perfect, that of a 20-year-old. Dr. Del Negro has earned my praise for his work. The staff as well as the surgical process are highly professional.”

    Patrick Murphy, Dr. Del Negro
  • Thank you for the excellent care you give. Since I have only limited vision in the right eye and no vision in the left, I trust you completely to maintain the vision that I have.

    Jean Worthington, General Practice
  • “Dr. Senft has been an outstanding physician. I look forward to my next appointment. Thank you for such great care.”
