she is excellent and we are sad to see her leave UPMC

Dr. Sylvester is one of the best doctors that I see, and I see many. I would not go to anyone else for the care of my eyes, and I would travel as far as I had to, to see her. She is a caring and knowledgeable ophthalmologist.

Dr. Sylvester treated my child well. Always explained everything.

we have been with her since birth almost 8 years, and we are sad she's leaving. She knows her stuff and really listens. We made the trip when we lived in New York and even now in Ohio to have her take care of our daughter.

It is a shame to lose Dr. Sylvester as a UPMC Children's provider. She has been fantastic with our son's care over the years.
