I have been seeing Dr. Volpe for annual vision testing for the last 4 years, ever since he diagnosed my vision issues related to my brain injury. Thanks to Dr. Volpe I can now read again! I had seen 3 other health care providers prior to seeing him and all of them misdiagnosed me. He's brilliant and compassionate.
