    She is a really nice person & really good at her job, I am thankful I had her as my doctor! Without her I could have lost total sight, as none of the eye doctors I went to knew what was going on with me, until I was sent to her (after going to my doctor & 2 opthamoligis & 3 months of having the same problem) she knew right away what was wrong & did all she could to save me from being blind. Thank you Dr. Faia!!

    Dr Faia is a compassionate, caring doctor. She really seemed to know exactly how to treat my husbands complex eye problem, explaining what she was going to do and why. One of the eye specialists we have ever seen (we've seen many!)
