Good visit.

Dr. Byrnes is the very best! He listens to and cares about his patients, and does everything possible to determine the best treatments for our vision problems. When an eye issue such my macular degeneration requires an injection, he does it so carefully and gently that I can't even feel it. It's also worth noting that the staff at RGW love and respect him as well. I recommend him highly to anyone needing help with retinal issues.

In my opinion, and that of friends, is that Dr. Byrnes is an excellent retina specialist. Although I am fortunate to not have any serious retinal issues at this time, I have a great deal of confidence in Dr. Byrnes to treat me with the utmost competence should I need care in the future. Anonymous

Dr. Byrnes has been my Retina Ophthalmologist since February 28, 2020. From this first appointment with him, I observed his positive rapport with me, which, immediately set me at ease. So, firstly, I would like to give kudos to RGW for having Dr. Byrnes on your staff. Upon entering procedure room to be seated for Dr. Byrnes, I was extremely fearful, anxious, and panicky. As I waited only for very few minutes, I started to panic more, knowing that I am going to get an injection to the back of my eye. But, gladly, the fears and panicking started to dissipate the instant Dr. Byrnes entered the procedure room with a warm smile and friendly rapport. I told him how fearful and nervous I was about the hurtful experience I was about to experience. He comforted me even more, by assuring me that he is going to numb me again, and described the other three steps he will do to take care of me and to prevent me from feeling any pain. He did what he promised, like an exemplary and compassionate professional. Thoughtfully, he named each, and again, explained the purpose of each during the process. I had no pains! Up to date, he is my favorite friend and a caring Retina Ophthalmologist. He "treats me the way he would like to be treated." -I endure no fears, no pains, no anxiety, and no panicking. If asked, I would highly recommend him.

Dr Byrnes is the best of the many doctors, great doctors , who have operated and cared for my eye sight for over a decade! Thank you so much!

I saw Dr. Byrnes, and his associate, Dr. Kevin Broderick, on Sunday, October 27, to treat a serious eye infection. I was so impressed with the selfless willingness of these highly skilled doctors to see me, an out-of-town visitor, on an emergency basis. I am very grateful for the expert care I received and would recommend Drs. Byrnes and Broderick unreservedly.
