She was very thorough and professional. She really took a lot of time to ask questions and explore all potential diagnoses. I've seen other ophthalmologists recently and really feel like she went the extra mile to be thorough and comprehensive.

Dr. Gavaris is very thorough and likable. I was seen fairly quickly by her assistant for an initial eye exam. I then had to wait in excess of an hour in the examination room. Another doctor was out, so it may be that they were juggling appointments. Overall, I recommend Dr. Gavaris.

She was a great doctor, was efficient and when I had to wait (many people in the waiting room) she was apologetic and got me examined quickly without making it feel rushed. Recommend her and everyone at this office! Very nice and professional.
