Dr. Anatakis is a wonderful retina specialist and I consider him superior to saving my eyesight.

July 17, 2015

This is one of the best offices I have ever visited. Dr. Anetakis saved my eyesight for which I will be forever grateful. The staff is very friendly.

July 06, 2015

I was seen immediately when I described my symptoms:bright flashes of light, black, large floaters. I was examined thoroughly and my history and current eye issues were addressed. I appreciated the care and information that was given to prevent a retinal detachment. After being re-examined a month after the first visit I was again thoroughly examined and told to resume activity. Thank you!
