Dr Sylvester is an amazing physician. We drive over an hour for our visits because of her passing many other physicians along the way. She is kind, smart, thorough and genuinely cares about my daughter and her progress.

Always have the best experiences with Dr. Sylvester, if we lived closer we'd keep using her as our daughters vision provider. She's always happy, excited to see our daughter and very caring with her. Very informative and helpful with information about her conditions and what is happening with her.

dr. Sylvester is our first choice in the practice, she did my daughters eye surgery for strabismus when she was 5 years. scheduling conflicts prevented us from seeing her during our last 2 check ups, but we were happy to see her again. she is brilliant and so technical and has such a precise attention tot detail. you just know the exam is very very thorough and her eye glass Rx is precise. we're very grateful for her!

Pleased with physician care, would go somewhere else if not happy with medical care. I'm not happy the office wait times. We waited 25-30 minutes before being called back to exam room. This happens almost every visit, sometimes there is longer time spent in waiting room. Total time from arriving to leaving was 2 hours 20 minutes. This is a long time for a child to be engaged at a doctor appointment. Apppointments are always long at this office. After being evaluated by assistant, we may wait 15-30 minutes for the doctor. We keep coming back because Dr Sylvester does give us quality time during the actual eye exam and UPMC doesn't give us any other options for pediatric eye care in the North Hills.
