Congratulations to Dr. Melvin Haller, Dr. Chad Haller, and Dr. Tod Haller on being awarded the prestigious Most Compassionate Doctor Award for 2013. All three doctors have now won this award 3 years in a row.

Each year, nearly 100 million patients across the U.S. access websites like to provide feedback about experiences with their physicians. Only those physicians with near perfect overall and bedside manner scores, as voted by their patients, are selected for the Compassionate Doctor recognition. Of the nation’s 870,000 active physicians, less than 3% were accorded this honor in 2013.

The Compassionate Doctor certification is part of the Patients’ Choice recognition program, where patients rate and vote for their favorite doctors.

Thank you to all of our patients and for the honor of allowing us to serve you. This award means everything to us, because you, the patients, are the ones who made this happen for us. We hope to continue to make you proud and thank you for this distinction .

What is the difference between an Optometrist, Ophthalmologist and Optician?

What is the difference between an Optometrist, Ophthalmologist and Optician?

Queens Optometrist - Queens OphthalmologistBelieve it or not, this question is one of the single most common questions in eye care. In fact, many doctors don’t even know the difference! So here it is simplified:

Optometrists are eye doctors who are trained in managing conditions called “refractive errors,” such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and double vision. They can prescribe an array of refractive tools such as glasses, contact lenses, magnifiers, and prisms. They attend 4 years of optometry school, but they do not go to medical school.

They often diagnose conditions, such as glaucoma, retinal detachments, cataracts, etc., however, they do not TREAT these conditions. Once they suspect someone has an eye condition, they send the patient to an OPHTHALMOLOGIST for treatment.

Ophthalmologists are eye doctors as well, however, they have gone to medical school and have earned an M.D. Just like an optometrist, they can prescribe glasses and contact lenses, but they can also prescribe medications, perform laser surgery and operate on the eye. They are medical and surgical doctors.

Opticians are people who sell eyeglasses. They are not doctors.
