I have been going to Dr. Mav for about 6 years. I thank God everyday for Dr. Mav and his quest for advanced education to save mine and others sight. (His staff has a great respect for him also)

Dr. Mav as everyone calls him answered his personal phone to take a call from another doctor from another practice a few miles away. I was in the other doctors office having an eye exam followup. Dr. Panzo had explained to me that in order to replace my right eye lens he would bring in another doctor that he knew had attached the new lens to the eyeball instead of the normal way. My eye had been injured some 50 plus years ago and wasn't much left to hold the lens in place. Doctor Panzo described to doctor Mavrofrides what they were up against. I went to see doctor Mav and he called doctor Panzo and the two removed the old lens and replaced with the new one. Doctor Mav also cleaned up part of my pupil that had also been injured. The two doctors consulted with each other as I visited both over the following year. I am so grateful for these two doctors. Thank You doctor Mavrofrides, you are one of the best ever!

My son was having problems with a bright light in his left eye. He is 16 and Dr. Mavrofrides was the only Dr. that would see him. He was wonderful and very thorough with my son. We were very worried as he has many medical issues. Dr. Mavrofrides was patient with him and got to the bottom of the problem right away.

Doctor Mav is the best doctor I have had treating my central branch eye issue. He has tried everything to help me get better vision in my right eye. I have had this condition for almost 9 years and saw many eye doctors. He has taken the time to talk to me and comfort me. He also took time to talk to me about vertigo which suddenly appeared, not related to my eye issue. You will not be disappointed with him. The wait is fairly long but they tell you upfront. Somethings are worth the wait. Getting a shot in your eye should not be rushed.

My glaucoma specialist recommended Dr. Mavrofrides as an outstanding surgeon who would be able to operate and fix my rare condition. From the moment he walked into his examining room I felt confidence. The staff had done some tests and pictures, he talked with me and then called the referring Dr. He returned to the room full of energy and confidence for the surgical task. How relieved and excited I was! The surgery was successful and 6 months later I had the other eye operated. I no longer need drops and my vision is excellent. Dr. Mavrofrides personality makes going to a doctor a very pleasant experience. He is truly special!

I went to Dr Mav for a second opinion after being frightened to death by another doctor. He was completely thorough and reassuring that the previous concern was completely unwarranted. I left with answers to all my concerns and so relieved. Entire office was amazing. They got me in very quickly because of my concerns.

Dr. Mav is one in a million. He performed laser surgery for two retinal tears on me after cataract surgery and managed to keep my vision in that eye 20/20. God willing, it will remain as good. I would not hesitate to recommend him. He listens actively and you know you're in the best hands.He is worth the wait.
