Everything was fine . I loved Denise

love the office and doctor. I am sad to have to switch doctors because of the UPMC and BCBS battle.

very knowledgeable of my eye condition

January 23, 2019

She explained my retinal problem satisfactorily. Because of the different test she had done on my eyes I now understand the cloudiness is due to cataracts and not primarily the floaters which I was concerned about, which is a relief. The condition can be corrected. She also followed up by suggesting I see a cataract doctor, and a followup appt in one year on my retina.

Overall very good experience. Had appointment within two hours of calling with a medical concern, and all staff was exceptional. This office was recommended to me, and I can understand why.
