Dr. Pefkaros' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Pefkaros "I have been in the field of medicine since my graduation in 2001. I took an oath, on that day, to abide by the ethics and morals of the profession of medicine. I took a similar oath when I joined the military to serve my county as an eye surgeon. Integrity, honesty and standing by my word is paramount in my personal and professional life. My team and I are genuinely interested in helping you achieve your vision goal and look forward to seeing you in the near future."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pefkaros "As an ophthalmologist, my staff and I offer comprehensive and surgical eye care for the whole family. We strive to offer sophisticated and compassionate care to all of our patients. We treat our patients as we ourselves would like to be treated. Waiting times are minimized and we take same-day emergencies and have no endless voice mail prompts when you call. We take time to explain your eye condition and are always available for questions."

Patient Comments (20)

Thorough, professional, courteous, AND great staff. He called me to check up hours after each surgery. How many doctors give their cell number to patients in case they have questions? This is the only one I know. You need eye surgery, go to Dr P. No question the best decision you will make.
