Excellent knowledge of my sons condition. Everyone in the practice so nice and helpful
Orefield, PA |
The wait in his office is definitely long - and the waiting room is often over-crowded and quite uncomfortable. The quality of the exam and the expertise of Dr. Trachtman is phenomenal, however. His staff is fantastic.

We have been coming to Dr. Trachtman for almost 18 years. Both of my children are his patients, and when I needed to have my eyes examined, he was my first and only choice. His office staff is friendly, courteous, and helpful. The fact that he has Saturday hours is also a huge plus for college aged patients and kids involved in after school activities. No matter how busy Dr. Trachtman is, he takes his time with patients, makes your feel comfortable, and answers all of your questions.

Although we sometimes find that wait times are very long, Dr. Trachtman is absolutely the best for pediatric patients. Our daughter has been a patient of his for eight years and has always loved her appointments. We both feel very confident in his recommendations and expertise and wouldn't think of going elsewhere.

Dr. Trachtman had a great rapport with my 5 yr old & made the exam fun. He seems to be very knowledgeable. He came highly recommended by several local professionals.

Dr. Trachtman was excellent with my one year old and her extremely nervous parents!!! He put us all at ease while also leaving me very confident in his ability. He took his time and answered each question without rushing us. His staff was terrific as well. The only problem was scheduling to get it. Honestly after seeing him I can understand the long wait. I should add, Our appt was non urgent but it was about 2 months out.
Bethlehem, PA |
We waited over two hours to be seen, was ridiculous
My child was having episodes of double vision and one eye was going in. Took her to the ER and had an MRI which was negative. They asked us to follow up with an eye doctor. I heard wonderful things about Dr. Trachman so I was happy to get an appointment the very next morning. He seemed very short and rushed with my daughter. He was actually arguing with her that she could see. He also told her that if she doesn't see the next step is going to the hospital for a needle in your back or eye. It wa
