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.
