Dr. Pitera is knowledgeable, caring, honest and genial. I have been trusting his professional decisions since 1996. Along with his assistant and office manager, Celia, they provide a very friendly, informal and yet professional experience. Highly recommended.

Doctor Pitera has seen me through a major eye issue by proactively identifying my retinal detachment before it actually happened. when it did eventually happen he was very quick to help me find the right doctor and even fight with my insurance as to the urgency of immediate surgery by a retinal specialist. he always been a compassionate man and doctor who tells you the truth without all the BS most doctors feed you. He is a breath of fresh air in this day of and age of money ruling everything!!

This man is semi-retired but should be fully retired, license taken away. My second appointment lasted 10 minutes and he spent half of it scolding me for the amount of time he spent with me on the first appointment. I was only allowed to ask 3 questions, then was kicked out after 10 minutes. He has no concern for his patients feelings. He took an oath to help people but has no feelings for their fears or concerns. He should take responsibility for himself and treat patients with dignity
