The doctor was wonderful. She had a lot of patience with my child. The only complaint that I have is for the man at the front desk. He needs practice in customer service. He did not greet or acknowledge me when I entered. When he asked me to gold he didnt even make eye contact. Seemed like he had an attitude and just wasn't friendly. I believe its important in every business to have people smile and greet customers or clients because it gives the whole business an impression. Overall the other staff was nice, friendly and professional.

I was extremely satisfied with Dr. Silvestre. I came in for a consult regarding some recent issues with floaters and concern about potential symptoms of a serious condition. Dr. Silvestre did a detailed exam and testing to assure that there were no serious issues. I was very pleased with her thorough exam.

Dr. Silvester was not only professional & friendly she went above and beyond. What we thought was going to be a routine exam turned out to be far more serious. Thank God she was able to detect a problem and called a specialist to get us in immediately to fix it. I would recommend Dr. Silvester o anyone

Dr Silvestre was great! I have had previous eye exams however never have they been this pleasant! She walked me through the whole process and explained everything to me. This may have been one of the most thorough eye exams i have ever had. Will definitely be back soon and recommend to friends.
