excellent physician and team

August 10, 2018

I am always satisfied with the care I receive at the UPMC Eye Center.

Dr. Drexler is extremely knowledgeable about his profession. I am confident this knowledge will benefit my eye health now and in the future.

July 20, 2018

Dr. Drexler is excellent- would highly recommend him.

July 13, 2018

Dr. Drexler is consistently thoughtful and kind during any eye examination. He shows great concern about the patient and repeatedly asks if there is anything else he can answer or explain again if needed.

great office and great office staff very helpful

July 06, 2018

This was not a routine visit -- I called because I needed Dr. Drexler's advice on my current medical experience and his office did not have an open appointment. I agreed to speak with a nurse, explained my concerns and why it was an immediate need to see the doctor, but not yet an emergency room issue. After consulting with the doctor, she and staff managed to squeeze me into his already full schedule. Even so, the appointment was NOT rushed and every effort by all staff as well as the doctor, was made to confirm that I understood what is happening and how to handle things should a true emergency arise. I left the office feeling heard, respected and confident in place of the anxiety I arrived with.

Always a pleasurable experience with this physician and the support staff. This is a very efficient office considering how small the facility is in size.

wasn't comfortable waiting for over an hour to be seen by my opthamologist. and the radio station being piped in (a so-called classic soft rock station)'s music made the wait exponentially dreadful.
