Amazing Doctor. 100% recomended.
in Sicklerville, NJ |
Dr. Prieto is an above average opthamologist and she goes above and beyond to make the children feel comfortable and use techniques that really help to makee the kids feel comfortable. My daughter has hydrocephalus which has caused several cision problems. I unfortunately decided to switch eye docs bc my daughters other specialists are at st. Chris'.BIG MISTAKE.I am bringing her back to Prieto so she can get the care she needs...Dr. Prieto is great and will help your child in every way possible!

Dr. Prieto treated our daughter while she was in the NICU, so we stayed with her. She has a good repore with young children and plenty of patience. Unfortunately we disagreed about the doctor insisting that our daughter needs glasses. She had never squinted or struggled to see. We felt she is too young to accurately be examined. She got fidgety and stopped answering questions, as any 3 yr old would. So, we may be heading somewhere else for a second opinion before we act on the doctors diagnosis.
