We love Dr. Sylvester! She is an incredible doctor and have recommended her too many family and friends.

Dr. Sylvester is one the best providers I have had the opportunity to work with regarding our child's recent eye surgery. Both my wife and I work in the Healthcare setting and have nothing but positive comments regarding Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh and Dr. Sylvester.

January 08, 2016

Dr. Sylvester was awesome! She did a very thorough exam and answered all of my questions. I felt like she shared my concern for my daughter's health. Everyone in the office was very nice. Because some extra testing was ordered, we were still there over lunch. I felt bad that we were keeping the staff busy at lunch time, but they did not seem bothered at all. It was a very welcoming environment.

Everyone in the office was friendly and helpful. I feel confident in them with my child's healthcare decisions.

Dr. Sylvester is amazing. She is so thorough and patient and really explains things well. My daughter has been under her care since the NICU and we are extremely pleased with her care, concern and expertise.

Dr. Sylvester and team are Excellent - I travel 20 miles because of the outstanding care she provides. I would not go to anyone else.

November 20, 2015

Dr. Sylvester took great care in evaluating our daughter's vision issues --- no small feat on a 3 1/2 year old. We left our visit with a greater understanding of her condition today as well as corrective/treatment options for the future. Our family is grateful to have a super-specialist for our child, and feel confident that she is receiving the best care possible.
