Patient Comments (3)

Dr Pilavas is a great Doctor . Eyes are very important especially since I come from a mom with a history of eye problems. I find his knowledge and love for his field as well as temperament make him my choice in an eye surgeon.

He performed cataract surgery for my mom and instead of improving her vision he ruined it. I would advise that you stay away from this doctor.

Very good bedside manner. Helped me call in a prescription to a pharmacy in a different state after hours.
