Dr.Anatakis knew exactly what my concerns were- I didn't have to tell him-he knew by his exam of my eye.

Provider, as always, was friendly, kind, and considerate. I could not ask for a better physician.

I wish all doctors were as good as he is!!!!!

December 10, 2015

He is absolutely the most professional eye specialist I have ever met, not only does he correct the issue I am having, he has the bedside manners that every doctor should have. After all the tests, which was completed promptly and professionally, he took the time to explain to me AND my wife what was happening! I would recommend him to anyone needing eye care! Thank you!
