Dr. Pautler was one of the best doctor that I ever was seen by. He made me feel comfortable and was very friendly and easy to talk to. He was very informative and took the time to explain it in simple terms. I felt that he was very sincere and caring with my issue. His staff was very friendly and my wait time was minable. I know that I found my Ophthalmologist and I would "HIGHLY" recommend DR. Paulter to anyone who may need help with their vision.

Dr. Pautler saved my left eye!!! Back in 97, I suffered a detached retina in my left eye and was told to go directly to St. Joseph's Hospital. Dr. Pautler was the surgeon who performed the emergency surgery around 9PM that night. I had several tears and was very lucky to regain sight in my left eye thanks to Dr. Pautler!!!! I recommend him without a doubt!!!! Thank you Dr. Pautler for saving my sight!!! GOD bless you

I couldn't have found a better doctor. His staff was very professional and very friendly. Dr.Pautler did a complete diabetic eye exam and explained what he was doing every step of the way and why he was doing it. I was able to ask questions as he went along if I didn't understand something. He takes time to ensure you understand everything. I recommend every I know to him! He is the best!
