Dr. Sylvester is caring, compassionate, and very attentive to my children's medical history and personal needs. She takes her time to be accurate, and explains what she is doing, why she is doing it, and what the results mean. I would recommend her to every family, especially if you have special needs or concerns regarding your child's eye health.

We have been seeing Dr. Sylvester routinely since my daughter was a week old and have always had excellent experiences with her. From check-ups to the treatment of an issue, she is wonderful with our baby and also with discussing complex items with us. During a recent visit, we had a genetics question and she brought a geneticist on her team into the room to discuss as a group. We never feel rushed and always experience above excellent care.
