Patient Comments (2)
in New York, NY |
Professional, confident and experienced. Also, just a nice person. I recommend her anyone who would need the services she offers, The staff was very helpful and considerate, as well. I liked that I could fill out my forms beforehand and that I now have an online private portal to communicate (make appointment, ask question and see test results) with the office.

I had a second visit with Dr. Elizabeth Maher and I must have had a bad hair day on my first appointment with her, thinking she had poor bedside manners. I was truly mistaken. Busy as she is, she is quite personable and a exceedingly competent doctor. I had minor eye surgery done and she explained everything before hand and was very delicate in her touch and reassuring. I give her a 5 star now. She is a truly great doctor.
