Patient Comments (1)
in Girard, PA |
My daughter's both have rare genetic condions with possible Opthalmologic complications. Dr. Sala has been treating them since they were tiny. He has always been professional, kind and respectful, even when I have had concerns which turned out not to be problems at all. I am so happy to have a great opthalmologist to take them to.
