I found Dr. Pyfer to be rude, inconsiderate, and arrogant. His prescriptions for my glasses had to be redone by another physician at the practice both years that he did my vision exam. I have stopped using him.

Dr Pyfer performed my PRK surgery. I am almost a year out and my vision went from 20/400 to 20/15. I have been very impressed with Dr Pyfer and his staff. Laura (LASIK coordinator) is very knowledgeable and has been very responsive to follow up emails.
