Patient Comments (4)
We had a good first visit with Dr. Pogrebniak. He was patient with my son and gave me ample time to ask all my questions. He seems very knowledgeable. The techs and office staff were also good with my son and flexible with me. Scheduling was made easy. Oh, and they had a cartoon on for the littles and offered a small snack to us also. Anyone with young children can understand how nice that is for us parents. (Sept. 2017)

Dr. Pogrebniak is more than a saint! We couldn't have asked for a better doctor for our 3 year old son. He performed eye surgery on our son and with his amazing amount of knowledge and very precise skills did an excellent job. We would and do highly Recommend him to anyone looking for eye care. We ended up getting a second opinion and I am so glad we found Dr. Pogrebniak!
