I have been a patient of Dr. Pfister since 1997, and as the Song Amazing Grace goes' "I was Blind , but now I see." I owe it all the Dr. Pfister and Dr. Alvarez. I had seen numerous Drs. all over the South East and No body knew what was wrong with my eyes. My husband , had a friend at UAB and he called her for Help, she recommended Dr. Pfister. And as the saying goes the rest is history. Thanks to Drs. Pfister and Alveraz!!!!!!! I can see better than I ever have in my life (20/20) now

One of the BEST in the treatment of eye injuries and conditions! His wisdom and caring saved my son's eye and other health issues when he had a cornea infection. In fact, due to his great care, my son did not require a potential corneal transplant!
