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.

Dr. Mav is amazing, understanding, a great listener and a miracle worker. I was sent to see him post cataract surgery after being diagnosed with endophthalmitis. So scary! He saved my sight and my eye. He is the best!

Doctor Mavrofrides is a superb surgeon and very special type of doctor, In addition to his skill in repairing my detached retina his bedside manner is superb. His explanations before surgery were clear and easily understood. He is truly a physician who cares and as a surgeon he is an artist. Thanks so much Doctor Mav.
