I am very familiar with eye doctors in several countries around the world due to a history of eye procedures. Dr. Pilavas recently performed a cataract procedure on one of my eyes. He is amongst the most impressive doctors I have come across. Dr. Pilavas has a wonderful temperament and bedside manner. He also very clearly explained the upcoming procedure, choices to be made, possible side effects. On the day of the procedure he was very calm and reassuring. And he truly has doctors hands! Dr. Pilavas works carefully and methodically always ensuring the patient has no discomfort or trepidation. His post op care and responsiveness are also exemplary. I have no hesitation to rate him 100 of 100. A wonderful doctor!

This would have been a 5 star experience, as the doctor was great and the office was clean, but I waited about 45 minutes for my appointment, which is ridiculous.
