I would recommend Dr Sylvester to anyone. She's a great surgeon

September 18, 2015

Dr. Sylvester is awesome, probably one of the nicest D.O.'s I've ever met and she seems to really care about the premature babies coming to her for their first eye checks.

Dr. Sylvester is always wonderful and has my child's best interests at heart. She is a phenomenal doctor.

I travel over one hour (each way) passing many other md's along the way - to see Dr Sylvester for my daughter - I choose her because I trust her (she has earned our trust). She is extremely skilled and excellent with my daughter. I would NOT go to anyone else.

July 10, 2015

Staff at the Pine Center are always courteous and respectful. They seem aware of and empathetic to my son's special needs and always interact appropriately with him. Dr. Sylvester inspires confidence and puts my son at ease. She always to make our experience as trouble free as possible.
