Many of your questions do not apply, however, overall Dr. Anetakis and his staff are professional, friendly, thorough and it is always a pleasure to see them.
Dr. Anetakis is wonderful !!!!!
Dr. Anatekis was excellent, kind, courteous, knowledgeable. I felt very confident with him as my surgeon. His staff was also wonderful. All friendly and helpful.
Dr. Anatalus was very thorough and caring in his care of me. I was frightened about my eye and he reassured me that my care would be the best he could give me. He explained what was wrong and the best way to deal with it. He and the staff made me feel less afraid.
The Dr is excellent and I have recommended him to other friends often.
Dr. Anetakis and his staff are a pleasure to deal with.
he was running late for his appt. on that day and no one told his patients. i waited almost 2 and a half hours to see him.
l was there over 2 hours for routine checkup, although I agreed to have him look at me too.
good experience, they wash their hands every time they help me
Dr. Anetakis and Dr. Lagan both very professional and, to my knowledge, accorded me the high level of expertise and attention that I expected and that was the source in my decision to return to Pittsburgh for treatment.
The courtesy of the doctor has improved.
Dr. Anetakis was very thorough in his explanation of the surgery to be performed but talked so fast I had a problem keeping up with him. A later visit made the procedure very clear. I was stressed about the possible outcome but after the surgery am very satisfied & happy.
I had to wait over 2 hours to see the physician.
eye testing machine is cumbersome, outdated, painful and seemingly dubious in testing my eyes.
EVERYONE I came in contact with was very professional, friendly and knowledgable.
Very good physician.
Through very tough health times, the UMPC physicians ans staff have been of the highest quality I have ever seen!
They did a god job and I felt comfortable being there
Only complaint was the wait time to get treated
Dr Anetakis is the very best. From the first office visit that was an emergency in July 2016 to the current follow-up visits he has been wonderful. I went from not being able to see out of my right eye to full vision. I feel comfortable in his hands, his way of dealing with each faze of my treatment has been a blessing.
Smart & able to explain things well.
re: eye appt at mercy hospital. would like ANY staff member to notify if previous patient requires additional time. of course i am ok with any patient requiring additional time -- just let me know -- rather than waiting in a semi dark exam room for an hour with no info. never leave that place in 2 hours after appt time.
Dr. Anetakis is a wonderful physician. He was able to interpret several images of my eyes to determine the issue and sent me to the right place for assistance. Without his expertise, I would not be as healthy as I am today.
this was the first time I saw this provider, and I was not completely happy with his demeanor. I was not the easiest patient, but he was impatient and did not give me a comfortable feeling.
I had read excellent reviews about Dr. Anetakis, but after meeting him in person, I was not impressed. He definitely knows his stuff, but his bedside manner is not very good. He showed no compassion towards me. I had to wait almost an hour for my appointment (ridiculous), so perhaps he was not having a good day or was rushing to make up for lost time. Very disappointing visit after reading such good reviews. I have a follow up in one month - hoping that my first impression was wrong and this doctor really is kind and understanding. Honestly wishing I didn't have to go back to see this doctor.
I was impressed with him.
The staff is great and Dr. Anetakis is wonderful so glad I was able to meet him a few year when I didn't trust Drs. he was my angel to help keep my vision.
Dr Anetakis is a wonderful doctor.
This was a surgery f/u; some questions do not apply; it was a great visit and the doctor and the staff did everything to make it quick, thorough and friendly.
all staff is very friendly and courteous, visits are always pleasant.
front desk, medical assistants and of course the doctor are always super.
Doctor Antekais is a great asset to UPMC. His staff is also outstanding.
I go with my mother in law to two (2) other eye care groups in Cranberry for her eye issues, therefore I see first hand how other offices are operated and the Wexford office Doctors and staff of UPMC Eye are by far the BEST and most caring and considerate. I am treated like a person and not just a number. I am most grateful for this.
My doctor was very informative, caring, courteous and prompt. He gave me an appointment for the next day due to my symptoms.
overall I had a satisfactory medical appointment
I was very pleased wirh my provider and nurse.
Even before I met with Dr. Anetakis, he captured my attention while I was waiting to see a different doctor. The waiting room was very busy and the nurse told me to sit in a particular seat that was very close to his office. I saw him and smiled and he smiled back. I thought how nice it was that he acknowledged a patient that he did not even know. At this point I did not know that later in the day he would be the doctor to help me the most. I had to do some tests on my first visit and some how kept on being placed back in the seat closest to Dr. Anetakis office. I still had no idea who he was but was fascinated with how he was the busiest person traveling back and forth to see his patients. He impressed me even before I knew who he was. After seeing my scheduled doctor, I was sent over to Dr. Anetakis for his expertise. When he walked in to the room to look at my eyes I felt a sense of comfort because he was the doctor who continue to cross my path from the very start of my visit. He took immediate action with my eyes and I am very grateful. I gave the good Doctor Anetakis such awful behavior on my first visit, but he was very comforting and patient with my fears. He did a procedure on one of my eyes and I like to think that now I have a Double A eye. I continue to follow up with Dr. Anetakis with activity on my other eye. I am glad that he still continues to see me.
I arrived earlier and was admitted before my appointed time
Dr. Anetakis helped to restore vision to my right eye after a sports injury. Not only did his work far exceed my expectations, he was always very honest with the possible outcomes and very clear about what was going on with my eye. He was great about answering questions clearly in a way that was easily understood!
I'm sure that Dr. Anatakis doesn't need my 'feedback', as I believe there's too much concern for this in our world these days, but he saved the sight in my left eye, and has provided excellent followup care since. I am very grateful for, and respectful of his efforts.
Dr. Anatekis was very professional. He gave me bad news with much empathy.
a wonderful caring group
The staff was great. The only issue I have is that even with an appointment there always seems to be a 30 minute wait before I see the nurse/assistant then another wait before I see the doctor. Even though I am retired, I would like to see more respect for my time. I don't have that much left.
Waited more than 30 minutes before seeing assistant and another 30 minutes before seeing the provider. Total visit from appointment time to departure 1-1/2 hours.
the doctor was very kind and tried hard to keep me comfortable during my visit. I would recommend him to my family and friends.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Anetakis. His is extremely knowledgeable, professional and personable. I was very impressed with his help and attitude. The only negative aspect was having to wait almost two months to get an appointment with Dr. Anetakis.
Friendly, competent staff. The Doctor was friendly and took the time to explain everything to me and answer my questions. The only negative was that I went during an extremely busy time and ended up waiting for over an hour after my appointment time to be seen.
excellent, prompt care. Questions fully addressed.
What a wonderful group Dr. Anetakis has, they all work together to get the job done.
professional, confident, efficient
Dr. Anetakis seemed very knowledgeable and caring about my situation. He is a likable person.
I was taken great care of. I will continue to see my doctor as long as my insurance covers my care.
very prompt. very nice. explained everything well.
As good as it could get the Dr. is incredible and certainly knows his stuff. Very comfortable with all of my visits
Smart and informative doctor.
Overall, very good.
Wait time is almost always longer than what my mother has patience for. She has mild dementia and has a hard time understanding the long wait.
Excellent overall experience. Very knowledgeable, respectful, compassionate and very well organized. Efficiency and communication is very high on their priority list. All other providers should make an earnest attempt to learn from and replicate their process.
excellent Doctor and staff
Really like Dr. A, staff is great too!
excellent care by all
dr and staff are exceptional
Doctor was very knowledgeable and took time explaining my condition.
Dr. Anatakis' knowledge and skills are unparalleled when compared to any other doctor I have ever visited.
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.
he is the best
I was very satisfied with the professionalism and the courtesy shown by all.
Dr Anatakis' care, and his office staff, is always very good, excelling in retina treatment and patient care. Dr Anatakis is wonderful! I feel very comfortable with the treatment of my vision in his hands.
Dr. Anetakis is by far the best Ophthalmologist I've ever encountered. I have recommended him to family and friends alike.
Dr. Anetakis is an exceptional care provider who takes all the time necessary to listen and advise. And, his skill level is apparent in all.
I had no problems. staff is very friendly and all my questions are answered.
I was pleased with this visit.
See this doctor once a year for an eye checkup. Dr. Anetakis is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. I would recommend him to anyone.
all of the office personnel were very professional
Great doctor & service provided.
The entire staff at Dr. Anetakis' office were extremely helpful and very nice with me. Went in as an emergency patient and expected a long wait but that did not happen.
Sincerely appreciated Dr. Anetakis seeing me on my unscheduled visit regarding detachment of the retina in my left eye. His examination and explanations were thorough and satisfied my immediate fears. Appreciate his scheduling of a follow-up visit in a month to monitor any changes regarding light flashes and floaters in this eye.
I had a sever eye injury several years ago and Dr. Anetakis did my surgery to regain almost full site. He is a great doctor.
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.
Dr. Anetakis and the staff are wonderful people. My care with the team has been fantastic.
Dr. Anatakis is a fantastic ophthalmologist.
I have always had a good experience with this provider.
Outstanding physician, I'm fortunate to have him!! No wonder the Pittsburgh Penguins needs his expertise, experience, and kindness also!!
very good but survey is way tooo long
Dr. Anetakis is a wonderful, patience, and has explained every step of the process with correcting my vision, and concerns I have had with the procedures that I've had. The staff is always pleasant and courteous. I love this eye care center and would recommend and have recommended to anyone.
It was a good visit.
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.
thorough in examing eyes plus answers questions completely
Dr. ANETAKIS has been an excellent eye physician since our meeting a year ago. I had a detached retina, almost a complete detachment, and today my tests, conducted in his office at Mercy Hospital, resulted in the eye having 20/20 vision. We were blessed to have such a knowledgeable and skilled physician.
excellent but this survey needs an NA category. so many questions didn't fit the experience.
Dr. Anetakis is always friendly, courteous, and professional. I have great confidence in his knowledge and skill.
Dr. Anetakis saved my eye. Great doctor.

After all the tests, which was completed promptly and professionally, he took the time to explain to me AND my wife what was happening! I would recommend him to anyone needing eye care! Thank you!
I wish all doctors were as good as he is!!!!!
Dr anatakas is very wonderful and honest
I have total confidence in Dr Anetakis and the staff at UPMC Surgery Cernter. Dr Anetakis is my kind of doc. He's professional, prompt, very direct, but understanding at the same time. He projects confidence and experience, and is exactly the type of surgeon that you would want should you need one for a specific issue. He doesn't waste either his time or yours. Though I don't know him other than professionally, I also like him in addition to respecting him. In some ways, he reminds me of my nephew. In addition, I have had nothing but a positive experience with all the staff members associated with UPMC's eye care. Very professional, down to earth, kind and considerate.
I am very pleased with this eye specialist. He was able to diagnos my problem when the doctors in my immediate area were unable. I'm very comfortable with him as my eye specialist.

Overall. very satisfied
ALL EXPERIENCES WERE EXCELLENT
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. EVEREYONE was truly first-rate!
very nice staff and doctor
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 had a good experience with Dr. Anetakis and he always answers my questions or concerns
My appointment was for a diabetic check on my eyes. The doctor was great
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.
He is a retina specialist. I completely trust in his care, and I think the UPMC eye doctors are the best.
