Overall. very satisfied

August 17, 2015

Dr. Annetakis is, I feel, a VERY highly competent surgeon, and I thank him for both the surgical procedure, and the very clear, direct manner, with a thread of concern, for my situation. He did not 'beat around the bush' with my care, which I very much appreciate. Meanwhile, the support staff at UPMC Mercy could not have been any nicer, kinder, and more professional. EVEREYONE was truly first-rate!

Losing your eyesight is very stressful. Dr. Anatakes and his staff are very sensitive to this situation . Would recommend them 100% to anyone with the same problems.

Dr. Anetakis was excellent in his care for my detached retina. Great Doctor!

July 28, 2015

The doctor and his assistant returned my phone inquiries immediately and answered the questions that I should have asked during the exam, but thought of later. I needed more clarification on the types of physical activities I am allowed to do and not allowed to do during my next 4 weeks of observation.

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