We can't speak highly enough of Dr. DeStefano. Our son has Visual Snow Syndrome (VSS). I came across Dr. DeStefano online and called his office to see if he could recommend a doctor in our area since we are 90 minutes from his office. He responded personally after business hours via a phone call. We were so impressed with that initial contact that we scheduled an appointment with him. He was very thorough with the eye exam, found another issue, and determined what our son needed for therapy for the VSS. We have never had an eye doctor, or any doctor for that matter, who genuinely cares for his patients and their families; encourages patients to contact him through email regarding any questions or concerns they have after visits; goes out of his way to respond to email messages with complete answers to questions often immediately, and always within 24 hours; takes time to help you understand what Visual Snow Syndrome is and what can be done to treat it; and is very upfront with costs and treatment options. Both Dr. DeStefano and the front office staff have exceeded every expectation we have had. They are friendly, personable, and patient when working around our schedule to make appointments. He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about a condition that is foreign to most people. I believe his goal is to do whatever he can to inform, give reasonable hope to each patient regarding their specific situation, and find a treatment to help them. He is a phenomenal doctor. We truly cannot recommend him highly enough when it comes to diagnosing and treating VSS.

Dr. DeStefano is a rare gem in a sea of doctors. I have had post concussion syndrome for the past three months, and I was desperate for someone who could help me with my vision. I found him on the post concussion syndrome podcast, sent him an email, and within 24 hours he responded. We set up a phone call for the next day (which happened to be his day off) and he was so thoughtful and helpful. I live in a different state so I knew if my vision didn’t improve I would make the trip to see him. Luckily, it has gotten much better, but he stayed in touch and checked in on my progress. He is one of the most thorough, communicative, and and thoughtful doctors and I know where to find him if my vision declines. Thank you, Dr. DeStefano!

Dr. DeStefano truly made a difference for our son's confidence and abilities in regards to reading. Dr. DeStefano was patient, kind, and creative in finding the root of our son's vision issues and to create a treatment plan that was effective and fun for our child to work on. We saw growth in our son's ability to read, especially in regards to tracking text. Our son began to show growth in his reading skills while attending vision therapy at Visual Symptoms Treatment Center. His reading level increased and so did his confidence!

The exam was very thorough and precise Doctor Margolis had an excellent way about him he was absolutely in charge and he methodically went thru his exam like a scientist and he was easy to speak with and explained fully what he was doing and his conclusions . I see many doctors every week and I sometimes have to ask questions a million ways to get answers and it feels like I am directing things. Dr Margolis gets high marks from me as an excellent person to be in charge of my eye issues. Thank you for being good at your job.

We have been taking our daughter here for 11 years. The doctors, therapists, and office staff are exceptional! My daughter was going blind in her right eye at the age of 4. After the proper diagnosis, glasses, and eye therapy, she sees perfectly today. We are so thankful! I HIGHLY recommend the Visual Symptoms Treatment Center.
