Great doc. Totally understood my panic and axeinty issueso. Did a great job removeingrowth from corner of right eye. Great personality and/or bed side manner. He did a good job listening to me and working around my panic issues. That's an A+ on my book.
Dr. Cotter as well as his staff always go above & beyond to make my every 6 month eye appointments pleasant. The care & compassion they show is wonderful. Sometimes my time spent in the office is long, but I know its for a good reason & they are doing their very best to treat my glaucoma. I can truly say that Dr. Cotter and his staff treat their patients like friends & their friends like family. The Roanoke area is lucky to have such a kind, compassionate, knowledgeable physician & great staff.
Dr. Facciani sees my daughter and he is always amazing. He does great with kids I recommend them to anyone who needs an eye doctor for their child.
He done my ICL surgery on June 2 2016 and he is a great doctor and explained everything wonderful I had no complications and his staff was great also everyone was so nice and I would highly recommend him to anyone pursing eye surgery great experience and now I see wonderful thanks to him and whole Vistar eye center !;)
Dr. Griffeth is one of the most knowledgeable and professional doctors I have encountered. I was very hesitant about having eye surgery, but he was able to explain all options to me in a way that I could understand and make me feel confident in picking the best treatment option. He was genuinely concerned about me and I was at peace during my procedure kndowing I was in the hands of confident, skilled, and caring clinician. My experience with him exceeded all expectations!
It's waste your time and money to see this inexperience so called doctor!!!!!!! I didn't receive any treatment from him and was told to go home just wash my eyes only. As a result I had to see other doctors twice to fix my problems. I would NOT recommend this one at all.
My wholehearted appreciation to Dr. Griffith for the recent surgeries for cataracts on both eyes! Excellent success! Thank you to all staff, medical and office, for their efficiency and graciousness.
Dr Byrnes has my utmost respect and confidence. He has carefully reduced swelling behind my left retina with injections on 4 occasions.I have always been treated very well by every member of his staff. I highly recommend him without reservation.
Superior professional with great manner and skill. He did cataract removal for me on both eyes and it was a huge success. Made easy by Dr. Griffeth and his staff.
Dr. Facciani is WONDERFUL! I felt completely at ease on my daughters surgery day. I knew what was going on, he explained to all of us step by step what we might expect. And her outcome...FANTASTIC!! My daughter no longer has to cut half of her face out of pictures because she is embarrassed of her crossed eye, she looks at that camera dead on with a bright smile and even brighter eyes. I thank Dr. Facciani for giving my daughter her confidence back. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.
Dr Hartranft preformed stat laser surgery for retinal tear July 2. I felt he did an excellent job! and would certainly recommend him.
Dr Facciani was very highly recommended by my doctor and midwife for our newborn. Works very quickly and efficiently when it comes to the uncomfortable aspects of the appointment, but takes plenty of time to thoroughly discuss issues observed and plans for moving forward. Was a total sweetheart toward our little baby. Everyone we encountered at this visit had a very baby and kid-friendly personality. Having care providers like these makes this emotionally trying situation a little bit easier :)
Cataract surgery (both eyes) was expertly done and results wonderful. Very professional staff of nurses who gave excellent patient care.
Trustworthy, excellent manner and very pleased with service
Dr Frank Cotter is wonderful, but his staff leave a bad taste in my experience with him. They are not sensitive to the needs of the patients. Example, I needed a tissue and there was an empty box in the waiting room. I pointed this out to a lady behind the desk and she stated we are aware of it but did not offer to get another box. It is my experience that when you need a tissue, you need it now, not in a half an hour. It was eventually replaced, but about a half hour later. ALWAYS LATE
He is one of the best eye care doctors I have ever had the privileged of knowing. In all regards, Dr. Hartranft is my pick as a person, doctor and all around pleasing person to share a space with. He explains, he is especially careful during all procedures, he fully minimized damage or discomfort when performing procedures, he is careful to review tests and asks questions to varify that the action he is taking is fully appropriate. I am so thankful for him.
Had an appt. for exam. Was 20 minutes before my exam and I asked the front desk if I could run my mom to her car ( 5 minutes away round trip). I was back within 5 minutes; still before my appt. time. Dr. Strelow advised the desk that I would have to reschedule since I left the building. Smokers were outside longer than I was gone. I've used Vistar for 50+ years and will be moving my records to Dr. Eng. The arrogance of Dr. Strelow is unspeakable. They have lost my entire family as patients.
Dr. Cotter came out at 10:00 p.m. Sat. night opened his office and took care of me after a blow to my eye with a bungee cord. We drove 2 hrs. from WV, they could not find any doctor available or willing to see me till Monday. The emergency room Dr. was very worried about the blood he could see in the back of my eye & not being able to see. Dr. Cotter has cared for me since 5/2013. The night we met him he told us we would be treated like family & he has kept his word. My husband see him now.
Did not communicate an eye disease I had. Result was the eye disease got worse. Poor communication. Poor understanding of patient's intelligence.
Dr. Cotter is extremely professional, very knowledgeable and understands exactly what his patients are going through. I am always pleased when I leave the office, always having an understanding as to what is going on with my vision. Thank You Dr. Cotter for all you do, your practice is fantastic.
I would recommend Dr. Cotter for cataract laser surgery. I had cataracts removed, lens implant and IStent in both eyes (2 weeks apart). He and his staff explained what would happen during the surgery and recovery. Right after the procure was complete - what a difference - I could see without glasses (I'm 60 yrs old woman and have been wearing glasses for 53 years). Dr. Cotter and his staff are AWESOME - very caring, professional and would answer any question that you may have.
Dr Ramey performed two eye surgeries on me. He did a great job and is the most caring Doctor that I have known. He takes time with his patients and he went above and beyond to assist me. I would reccmmend him to all my family and friends.
Very nice. Takes time to answer questions.
Will not reccomend. He was rude after we waited 2 hours past our appt. time. He wouldn't let us speak or ask any questions. He told us to ask someone else when we did have a question.
Not good. Did laser surgery on my eye. Told me I would feel a little pinch. Was more like a fiery dart in my eye. Very painful. I groaned a few times and he told me to knock it off. Not very personable. He hurried to finish, then walked out telling employee to take care of me.
