It was my first visit and I was very satified
This started out as a routine check up visit and ended up with my need of laser repair of my eye retina. I am very appreciative of how Dr. Anatakas as the staff treated my unscheduled concern.
Always a very professional experience with Dr. Anatakis.
Outstanding opthamologist. Really addressed my concerns about my rapidly deteriorating cornea when my usual physician couldn't see me. There appears to be great synergy among the physicians in the office. I now have an appointment for the surgery with my primary in september.

A good professional group.
very impressed with this dictor and the staff at the Mercy eye center. i have already recommended to others.
When Dr. Anetakis finally saw me I had been waiting for 45 minutes. This could have been because of an emergency or something that I did not know about, but he seemed distracted for the first time since I've gone to him The appointment was somewhat hurried.

This office is very busy and the only thing is sometimes you spend at least two hours in the office for the complete appointment. It would be nice to maybe cut the time down a little bit. But they do take wonderful care of me.

Dr. Annetakis is, I feel, a VERY highly competent surgeon, and I thank him for both the surgical procedure, and the very clear, direct manner, with a thread of concern, for my situation. He did not 'beat around the bush' with my care, which I very much appreciate. Meanwhile, the support staff at UPMC Mercy could not have been any nicer, kinder, and more professional.

Losing your eyesight is very stressful. Dr. Anatakes and his staff are very sensitive to this situation . Would recommend them 100% to anyone with the same problems.

I would definitely recommend him to all friends and family.
Dr. Anetakis was excellent in his care for my detached retina. Great Doctor!
The doctor and his assistant returned my phone inquiries immediately and answered the questions that I should have asked during the exam, but thought of later. I needed more clarification on the types of physical activities I am allowed to do and not allowed to do during my next 4 weeks of observation.
Dr. Anatakis is a wonderful retina specialist and I consider him superior to saving my eyesight.
Washing hands with care
This is one of the best offices I have ever visited. Dr. Anetakis saved my eyesight for which I will be forever grateful. The staff is very friendly.
I was seen immediately when I described my symptoms:bright flashes of light, black, large floaters. I was examined thoroughly and my history and current eye issues were addressed. I appreciated the care and information that was given to prevent a retinal detachment. After being re-examined a month after the first visit I was again thoroughly examined and told to resume activity. Thank you!
My provider is always very courteous and considerate. He is very knowledgeable and provides the best possible advice and possible solutions for my problem. I am so happy that I found such an exceptional provider.
