The best optometrist I have had - I have complex eye care that he has explained clearly.

Doctors office very professional and helpful, no complaints

February 01, 2019

It was a snowy morning with horrible traffic conditions, so I didn't mind that my appointment began late. Dr. Drexler was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. As long as my prescription comes out right, which I'll know in a few days when I get my new glasses, I would consider Dr. Drexler to be an exceptional physician.

As this was my first visit to the UPMC Eye Care Center, I was pleased and very satisfied with my service and the interactions while there. There was a bit of a delay in the initial call-in to be examined, but I believe it was due to the bad road conditions and snow which caused an extreme delay with rush hour traffic and the office was dealing with a bit of a back up. The wait was in no way unpleasant.
