Patient Comments (1)
in Blue Ridge Summit, PA |
From scheduling my appt. to the last follow-up, Dr. Buttross and her Staff are first rate. Dr. Buttross treats you like you are a part of HER family. She truly cares about how you feel and why. There is nothing she won't do to go above and beyond the average Ophthalmologist. I gladly place the care of my eye sight in her hands and do recommend her to anyone that wants the best. She is worth traveling out of state just to see her.
