Exceptional Dr. and also has good interpersonal skills, very competent & caring.
I would recommend Dr Sylvester to anyone. She's a great surgeon
Dr. Sylvester is awesome, probably one of the nicest D.O.'s I've ever met and she seems to really care about the premature babies coming to her for their first eye checks.
Dr. Sylvester is always wonderful and has my child's best interests at heart. She is a phenomenal doctor.
She was very polite and she listened to what I had to say
Dr. Sylvester and her nurse assistant were wonderful
My granddaughter's experience with the doctors was excellent through the entire visit. I would choose Children's Eye Center again.
Excellent care provider. Worked great with my child and myself. Looking forward to next years check-up!
I travel over one hour (each way) passing many other md's along the way - to see Dr Sylvester for my daughter - I choose her because I trust her (she has earned our trust). She is extremely skilled and excellent with my daughter. I would NOT go to anyone else.
Staff at the Pine Center are always courteous and respectful. They seem aware of and empathetic to my son's special needs and always interact appropriately with him. Dr. Sylvester inspires confidence and puts my son at ease. She always to make our experience as trouble free as possible.
she is one of a kind and is extremely good with my child. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
Dr Kristin is a good doctor and I would recommend her to my friends and family.
