Dr Pannapara has been my eye doctor for many years and I highly recommend her. She is very personable, as well as professional and knowledgeable. She takes the time to get to know her patients and spends as much time as needed; you never feel rushed. She always makes sure that you are comfortable and secure in your comfort and choices. She also follows-up on treatment. Her staff is likewise, pleasant and helpful.
