I entered eye care with the philosophy to provide the patient with competent and compassionate vision care. I strive to develop a partnership with my patients through education so that they may make informed choices regarding their care. I enjoy caring for patients at the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Eye Institute because of the high standards of care and the team approach between the staff physicians.

Everyone was extremely professional. Found the problem, and gave me what I need to heal it.
Everything went fine with Dr. Conto and I have recommended him to my friend
The team that surrounded me at my visit was very caring and made me feel as if I was treated with care. It was very appreciated on how they got me back on my feet and made sure that I knew how to take of myself outside of the hospital upon leaving. Everything they have done was appreciated.
No further comments services were great today

Excellent as always
This was my first visit to this clinic area - dry eye specialist. It was a very good experience and I am very satisfied with their ability to schedule a follow up appointment in two weeks with a solid plan to ascertain the reason for my dry eyes. I would have said Excellent if there had been that option.
Just keep up the good work
Great ecperience
Excellent all the way around related to a same day appointment due to urgency and the detail surrounding my treatment by Dr Conto. I Am very appreciative for the care I received.
I have had several different appointments in various sections of the hospital. Each section has proven to be excellent in every area.
Great experience. Tech was friendly, professional and efficient. Dr Conto was thorough and explained things very well.
When Dr Conto retires in a couple years, it will be a huge loss for the department.
Excellant visit/appointment. I had deep concerns about my vision and the nurse who made the initial exam was very thourough and professional. I was impressed with Dr Conto. He delved into my past eye surgeries at the Eye Institute as weii as well as my eye records at the VA. He explained my current vision problems andIssued a new script for my glasses, and took the time to ask if I had any questions. I left feeling the appointment was successful and that I was in good hands.
Caring, concerned, answered all questions, had done his homework on my past history.
