In Her Patients’ Own Words…

I have rarely had such a perfect experience, and I’ve been to a zillion doctors. The pleasantness, sensitivity, kindness,helpfulness, thoughtfulness, professionalism were all amazing and deeply reassuring.

– Sammy, 64  

Dr. Banik is exceptionally thorough, gentle and skilled. She took the time to evaluate my case and make recommendations that no one other physician would. Thanks to Dr. Banik, I am free of headaches that plagued me for months.

– Vanessa, 43

Dr. Banik is special. Yes, she’s exceptionally trained, but more than that, she is unhurried, thorough, and  answers questions. My condition is rare, and treating it is an art, not just a science. Dr. Banik has achieved exceptional outcomes for me when others could not. I am privileged to have found her.

– Adam, 59

I was referred to Dr. Banik by the former chief of  Neuro-Ophthalmology at Yale who gave Dr. Banik the highest recommendation.

I was having trouble with my distance vision. After a very careful and thorough eye exam, Dr. Banik correctly diagnosed the issue: I needed cataract surgery. Dr. Banik performed the surgery. Recovery from the surgery was easy and my vision is much improved.

I have happily and enthusiastically recommended Dr. Banik to family and friends. Everyone who has seen her is delighted with Dr. Banik’s careful eye exam and expertise. She is a very caring medical professional.

– Amy, 65  

Dr. Banik is the light at the end of the tunnel.

My right eye was very red for a long time. After being misdiagnosed and treated by a group of ophthalmologists for a long time without any improvement, I was lucky enough to seek the help of Dr. Banik.

At first glance, she diagnosed the case as a fistula. After treatment with coils, my problem was immediately resolved.

My great appreciation to Dr. Banik.

– Rafael, 73

Dr Banik is lovely and the first doctor to really listen to my needs. She is very gentle and the results were fantastic!

I would recommend her highly. I will keep going to her in the future.
