I waited a long time to do lasik correction on my eyes.I was Always told I wasn't a candidate.Then I met Dr Mauro while taking my father for his cataract surgery.He was very friendly and made my dad feel comfortable.After speaking to him about my situation being far sided with a very bad stigmatizim.We did all the test to determine I am a candidate.the day of surgery i was terrified.Dr Mauro and his staff put that to rest.With the way he spoke to calm me down and even playing some Billy Joel during the procedure.I give them A+ all around to the Dr and his staff.

If you are looking for a highly skilled outstanding cataract surgeon Dr. Van Valkenburg is a great choice.The office staff is very through and professional every step of the way-very attentive staff that assist with all details of the surgical process. -I am an out of state patient that the staff and doctor did an exceptional job of coordinating delivery of services. As a patient I wasn't sure what to expect, but Dr. Van Valkenburg a highly skilled eye doctor patiently eased my fears and provided detail explanations. Pre-testing and using state of the art equipment and surgical devises. I was impressed with Dr. Van Valkenburg's attention to detail and precision of her work.I had a fabulous outcome and am so blessed to have my eyesight back! My only regret is that I didn't have the cataract surgery sooner. I more than highly recommend this doctor and staff.

Dr Martin is excellent. I am so happy I finally took the plunge. My vision the next day following LASIK was 20/20. From start to finish my experience was stress free and the office was nothing but professional. The LASIK suite is beautiful and serene. I trust Dr Martin and his years of experiece and involvement in nothing but cutting edge technology as a surgeon. His surgical coordinators are helpful and a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend you seek a consult if you are interested in LASIK

I have been working with North Shore Eye Care for many years. Their attention to detail, cheery staff, and fantastic eye care make the Huntington location the only place that I'll ever go get my eyes checked at!

Everyone was wonderful, incredibly nice and helpful. Dr. Martin did my LASIK procedure and could've have been more informative and friendly. Absolutely recommended in every way.

I would recommend NS eye care the staff and doctor were very professional and answered all my questions. Lasiks surgery was a life changing procedure and I would recommend that everyone have it performed.

I cannot speak highly enough about my experience with Dr. Mauro and everyone I encountered through the LASIK process. Their care, concern, and professionalism is above and beyond what I've ever expect, and I highly recommend them.
review for John Mauro, D.O.by Stephanie on 03/24/2016
Dr. Mauro performed Lasik surgery on me in December, and now my eyesight is so much better. He is a wonderful doctor, very caring, wonderful bedside manner and takes the time to listen and explain. The Smithtown office is very professional and everyone is so nice. I would recommend Dr. Mauro to everyone.

review for Hauppauge Officeby Amy Epstein on 02/01/2016
Dr Mauro saved my eyesight from a long battle with Uveitis. He is the most caring, compassionate and knowledgeable Dr. I know and I highly recommend him. The entire staff at this group is great!
review for Smithtown Officeby Sue Smith on 01/23/2016
I would highly recommend Dr.Mauro and his team for LASIK eye surgery. I had LASIK over a year ago and it is the best thing I have ever done. I wore contacts for the past 20 years and would have never considered eye surgery, until my friend made the recommendation based on her experience. It was a simple painless fast procedure and I can now see 20/20! I think Dr.Mauro and his team are professional, experienced and care about their patients. If you were ever considering LASIK just go for it! This was the best investment I have ever made, and I am so happy that I had Dr.Mauro and his team by my side. Thanks again. Kristin
review for John Mauro, D.O.by Kristin Cascardi on 11/11/2015
My husband awoke with what we thought was pink eye early this past Saturday morning. He phoned his previous ophthalmologist that referred him to the ER via the answering service - no personal call back. My practice is across from NS EYE and I have heard of their praises from our patients. I called their office and was greeted by a cheerful and helpful voice. My husband was asked to come in within 30 minutes which worked well for him. Upon arrival he was processed promptly, examined in a state of the art facility and was treated impeccably. The entire staff was outstanding exuding professionalism and service. My husband is a tough and difficult person to please, after 19 years I am still trying!! His experience at NS EYE was superior and he is thrilled that he now has a new physician. Kuddos NS EYE! The Abdul's

This was written to my friend on facebook, when she asked everyone for the best Lasik Doctor. In Long Island. Now she has a appointment in a few days. 15 comments were made by others recommending, Long Island Eye care, TLC eye care and others...... I quickly wrote: I know a phenomenal doctor and have done my research on every eye doctor in Long Island for months to almost a year. I was 150% confident with the expertise, respecfulness, and whole process of Dr. Martin at North Shore Eye care in Smithtown. I had a astigmatism and he reassured me through phone calls back promptly to feel comfortable and trust his knowledge that it will be 100% successful. Hes a true gentelman that is very patient and will work with people financially too. Though mine was totally covered under my health reimbursement portion of my insurance. H He can make mostly anything possible even beyond being able to see without glasses or contacts again. A+++. Vincent Giordano

I have been absolutely thrilled with my iLASIK procedure from the seminar all the way to the post-op follow up visits. I have complete confidence that I am getting the best possible care.
review for John Mauro, D.O.by Brian Darcy on 08/04/2015
I love Dr.Mauro!! Right from the start I had a good vibe about him. He presents himself with good bed side matter and actually cares about his patients. He answers all of your questions without making you feel rushed. He has a great personality and I trusted him 100% with doing my LASIK surgery. I could not be any happier with the results !! The staff is also really friendly and they make you feel very comfortable. The entire office is accommodating and I have not met one mean person who works there.

review for Albert Marcantonio, O.D.by Spencer Nussbaum on 05/20/2015
North Shore Eye care are very professional and truly care about all of there patients. I recently went in for the LASIK surgery on May 25th, 2015 and it was truly the best decision/investment that I ever made. This practice cares about having the latest technology and being able to provide the best service possible for their patients. I can honestly say that i am extremely happy with the outcome of this surgery. The actual surgery time is less than 30 minutes and the recovery time is about two days. It is truly life changing and Dr. Mauro was excellent from the consultation to after the surgery. I would strongly suggest getting this surgery as it will be one of the best things that you ever do for yourself.

review for Smithtown Officeby Samantha on 02/15/2015
I recently had lasik done at north shore eye care by doctor Mauro and I can honestly say I couldn't be happier. My whole life I've seen a number of eye doctors who constantly told me I would never be a candidate and it was just impossible because of my perscription. However, I went to go see dr Mauro and he told me that the impossible was possible. Everything about my experience at north shore eye care was great. I never had to wait long and the staff made me feel so comfortable and taken care of. Today is the day after my surgery and I can see great! My decision to get lasik and to get it done at north shore eye care was the best decision I've ever made. I would suggest it to any and everyone who is tired of glasses and contacts because it will truly change your life.

Dr. Mauro is one of a kind. He makes you very comfortable on your very first visit. He is not only an excellent doctor; but the most caring compassionate caring doctor I ever met in my life. I wish I found him years ago. I will definitely recommend him to all my friends. I feel very confident in his hands. Sincerely Carol Fulkerson
review for John Mauro, D.O.by Carol Fulkerson on 02/06/2015
I just recently had my Lasik surgery done at North Shore Eye Care with Dr. Martin. All of my visits from the initial consultation all the way to the post operation visit have been very pleasant. The entire office staff is very nice and professional. Dr. Martin made the surgery very easy to proceed with and the surgery itself produced the results I was looking for.
review for Jeffrey L. Martin, MD, FACSby Jonathan Tengco on 12/18/2014
Excellent people skills. Is genuinely interested in her patients. It took a little extra time to work with my 86 year old Mother, and the Doctor was very sweet and pleasant, as well as knowledgeable and helpful. I can't say enough good things about Dr Dempsey!
review for Theresa Dempsey, Au.D.by John J McHugh on 12/10/2014
I am a 48 year old wife, mother, and grandmother. I have some physical disabilities. My prescription for glasses was very strong. I wasn't legally blind but felt very close to it. I couldn't wear contacts. They would dry out my eyes, make them red and it just wasn't worth it to me. It took many years to get the nerve up just to go in for a consultation. I had many questions in person and by phone. Dr. Martin and the staff never made me feel like the simplest question was stupid. I felt like a pest but everyone was so courteous. Dr. Martin was so encouraging. He made me feel secure in my decision to go through with Lasix. The day before my Lasix surgery I had about 20 panic attacks. Never in my life had I panicked so much. I was afraid of being blind. I would rather lose a limb. The morning of the procedure I had 6 more panic attacks. By the time I made it to the office my entire body was shaking. I was talking fast to anyone who would listen. I explained this to the receptionist. My wait time was minimal. I was taken in and given something to calm me down. Again the procedure was explained to me in detail. I was told exactly what to expect. I saw a man go in before me. He was just as nervous as me! When he came out with clear plastic shields over his eyes, he had the biggest smile on his face. He told me it was a piece of cake. Yeah! Right! My name was called. I walked the short hallway to the exam room. It felt like a mile long. Dr. Martin came in. Again, he was so kind and encouraging. I explained how scared I was and I was ready to back out. I just wanted to go home to my safety zone. I can deal with glasses some more. Go! Run! But again Dr. Martin said I would be ok. He took his time with me and basically held my hand. Now I needed to walk a short hallway. I passed one door. The surgical room is right in front of me. RUN! I took a deep breath and laid on the examination table. I was given 2 stress balls, which probably now have 10 fingernail marks in them. OK! Here we go! Suction cups were put on my eyes. That was the pressure I was told to expect. Did you ever close your eyes and press your fingers against your eyelids to see little stars of colors? This is what it felt like to me. It lasted seconds. My head was moved to my left. Sit still. Don't move. I kept telling myself. Next thing I knew Dr. Martin stated the flap had been made. What? I never felt a thing! Can't be! He must be mistaken! The table was moved inches to my right. Just stare at the orange light. The machine made a zapping noise. I jumped. Remember, I'm still terrified. Dr. Martin asked me to stay still. Ok. I won't move a muscle. I'm concentrating on my breathing. The staff and Dr. Martin are speaking to each other. Some things I understood, others went over my head but I was always told what to expect and asked if I was ok, which I needed for my sanity. The suctions cups were removed at some point and tape put on my eyelids (I think before I was told to look at the orange light). Please Lord Let This Work! Don't let me be blind! DONE! What? Did Dr. Martin just say one eye was done? I felt like we just started. Something cool and white was being stroked on my eye. It felt nice. The tape was removed. Next eye. The same procedure done to my left eye was now being done to my right. DONE! You got to be kidding me! Where was the pain? I was helped to sit up. Dr. Martin asked me, "What time is it?" I haven't seen a clock in over 30 years. I had trouble seeing one with glasses on. I looked at the clock. I was in awe. I couldn't speak. "What time is it?" asked Dr. Martin again. "It's 4:21 pm," I replied. Then I promptly burst into tears. I COULD SEE WITHOUT GLASSES! HOLY CROW! UNBELIEVABLE! Its been 2 days since my Lasix surgery. I'm still walking by and telling the time to anyone who will listen. THANK YOU DR. MARTIN AND YOUR STAFF! Words just aren't enough for this miracle that has been performed. Sincerely, Deborah Fischer p.s. By the way, it's 7:24 pm.

Thank You Doc. Excellent job on my eyes. Recently, I received Lasik from Dr.Mauro and by far this has been the best decision ever, wish I did it sooner. Dr. Mauro takes his time and explains everything step by step. The staff there is very knowledgeable and patient with you. I HIGHLY recommend getting Lasik surgery at North Shore Eye Care. Again thank you Dr. Mauro!!

Dr. Buono spent a great deal of time with me addressing my eye issues. She was thorough, attentive, informative, and knowledgable.

Very professional and caring staff. Dr. Martin performed LASIK on my husband over 5 years ago and he still raves about his results. I wouldn't recommend anyone else.
