I was pleased with this visit.

See this doctor once a year for an eye checkup. Dr. Anetakis is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. I would recommend him to anyone.

Great doctor & service provided.

July 01, 2016

The entire staff at Dr. Anetakis' office were extremely helpful and very nice with me. Went in as an emergency patient and expected a long wait but that did not happen.

June 29, 2016

Sincerely appreciated Dr. Anetakis seeing me on my unscheduled visit regarding detachment of the retina in my left eye. His examination and explanations were thorough and satisfied my immediate fears. Appreciate his scheduling of a follow-up visit in a month to monitor any changes regarding light flashes and floaters in this eye.

June 24, 2016

I had a sever eye injury several years ago and Dr. Anetakis did my surgery to regain almost full site. He is a great doctor.

June 23, 2016

very impressed with this dictor and the staff at the Mercy eye center. i have already recommended to others.

June 23, 2016

A good professional group.

June 09, 2016

When Dr. Anetakis finally saw me I had been waiting for 45 minutes. This could have been because of an emergency or something that I did not know about, but he seemed distracted for the first time since I've gone to him The appointment was somewhat hurried.
