Stony Point is an excellent facility, and I am extremely satisfied with all facets of my surgical experiences there. I highly recommend Dr. Bernstein, Richmond Eye Associates and Stony Point Surgery Center to friends and co-workers who have eye problems. You are the best! A. Prossitt Aug 2016
My anesthesiologist Janet was awesome. My block for my procedure went smoothly, and my history of PTSD gave the team the alert to watch my level of sedation closely to prevent disrupting my surgery. Dr. Bernstein had explained my procedure thoroughly. The entire staff from check in to check out made my experience seamless. So glad you all are there for us.. – J. Jacobs Jun 2016
