"The best experience I have ever had"

Dr Cortelli is an exceptional provider. He is always very pleasant, explanatory, and thorough. The staff is also exceptional. Dr Cortelli’s assistant, Alicia, was absolutely the best. I have been going to ophthalmology offices for over 40 years and Alicia is the first technician/assistant that was very pleasant, knowledgeable and very, very thorough. I had the best experience I have ever had in my years of seeing ophthalmologists.
