Long wait times to be seen, and very hard to schedule, or change appointments

Dr Sylvester is wonderful

January 12, 2018

was considering going to a local eye doctor because I have to drive for 1 1/2 hours to se Dr Sylvester but after seeing the care that is provided I feel that it cannot be replicated. dr Sylvester and her team at pine center are second to none and we will continue to travel to see her to get the best care possible!!!

Dr. Sylvester had an excellent rapport with my daughter. She was able to put her at ease within minutes of meeting her and made an effort to connect with her-not just with me-during the visit.

January 10, 2018

Dr. Sylvester is very knowledgeable, very kind, and great with children. She is very thorough and explains everything very well. I highly recommend her!
