really appreciate trying to get me functioning without pain
extremely long wait - over 2 hours
very dedicated doctor and staff. would highly recommend.
first time at this office,,,,very nice experience, staff well mannered and caring
We love dr. Stefko! We want to thank her for being so kind and doing such a wonderful job with my daughters surgery! She is definitely the best doctor in her filed and i would recommend anyone to her! Very satisfied with her!
Excellent care fom Dr. Stefko. She always listens and spends as much time as needed. Very knowledgable about my condition
I would return again to this practice
I had a great experience with the surgery Dr. Stefko performed!
This provider easily grasped diagnostic aspects of condition within the first 2 minutes of the visit. Over the past three years, I have seen several nationally known neurosurgeons and eye surgery specialists who misdiagnosed my brain tumor and the possible impact on vision in my left eye. What a relief to find such expertise and willingness to operate if necessary.
Dr. Stefko went out of her way to help me gain access to resources to address my chief complaint.
Always has been excellent and a pleasant experience because of the caring attitude of all involved.
I've been coming to UPMC eye and ear for years and have always been treated great and received the best of care from all the doctors and assistants.I would never think of going anywhere else.
Dr. Stefko is great!
everything was excellent.
Dr. Stefko did exactly what was needed for my surgery to make it a success. I am very grateful.
Dr Stefko has really been amazing, she knows so much about my condition and she is been trying to help me get back to normal! I really feel confident I found an expert and trust her completely
Dr. Stefko took the time to explain everything she was going to do, why she was going to do it, approximately how long surgery would take, recovery time and how successful she felt the surgery would be. She took the time to show us CT scans to help us get a better understanding of where the problem is. She covered every question we asked and more.
The wait was very very long. My appointment was at 1, they took me back for testing and I wasn't done until 3:15. I had other appointments that day and had to call them to tell them I would be late.
first appointment with dr stefko -- EXCELLENT!!
I love Dr Stefko ! she is Amazing !
Dr. Stefko was very attentive to my concerns. I would highly recommend her.
111:45 appt time it was about 12:45 before we even saw the Dr's assistant
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Stefko and the Staff.
I really enjoyed meeting with Dr. Stefko. I came to her office on essentially a mission to get more information about a potential ptosis surgery. Dr. Stefko sat with me and answered all of my questions, provided her honest input on any potential side effects or risks, and was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I will definitely return to have the surgery done under her care.
Dr. Stefko is the best.
the actual people from that office were great.
very fine doctor and concerned staff
I always have a excellent experience with Dr Stefko. She is a very caring and down to earth Doctor. You know that she is listening and truly values your well being. My opinion is that she is very good in her select field. UPMC is very fortunate to have her. Her staff is also very professional and gracious.
She did a wonderful job on my eyelid surgery on both eyes!! I am healing fast and great!! Thank you guys sooo much.
I waited for over 1 hour and 15 minutes to see doctor. I DID NOT SEE the doctor.. When I asked when the doctor would see me and the staff was unable to give any kind of a time frame I left the office after telling the receptionist and the office manager what I was doing.
I wish I would have met her sooner!
Dr. Stefko, her residence and team are great!
Dr. Stefko ALWAYS explains what she is going to do BEFORE she does it
Dr Stefko is by far the best in her field! Kind, considerate and caring professional!
I was very satisfied with my care.
Could not ask for a better medical team and lead care provider. Dr. Stefko is gifted, compassionate and a wonderful doctor. I am fortunate to be under her care.
Best ophthalmologist. I would never see anyone else.
Very good care and exams were thorough.
very good visit/followup
Dr. Stefko has done a fantastic job in helping me to get back to where I was before my accident. She is my hero.
As always, clinical staff was excellent. Drs. Stefko and Waxman (who came in for a "curbside" consult ) were professional, conveying confidence and competence alike. These are not average clinicians, and UPMC should feel fortunate to have them on their faculty. I would "switch sides" to continue in their care.
Dr. Stefko is always very professional, friendly, explains things thoroughly, makes you feel at ease. I would recommend Dr. Stefko highly to anyone.
Dr. is just wonderful. She's bright caring & honest. I'm so fond of her & proud of the care she gives.
Dr. Stefko is one of the most intelligent, knowledgable and most of all likable doctors l had ever have a priviledge to see. Not to mention she saved my life. I wish there were more doctors like her.
Dr. Stefko is a fine doctor, who helps to alleviate the annoyance of my facial spasms.
Dr. Stefko and her staff, especially nurse Bill, are awesome. We couldn't be happier with the care that we received.
Dr. Stefko is a very caring person, who gives her patients the very best information and recommendations to further health care to the doctors she would want to see....she also has a great memory and after meeting a patient, she will remember them always
My treatment at UPMC was excellent.
Dr. Stefko is a talented surgeon and a caring individual. She quickly responds to email concerns and the office team is professional and caring as well.
absolutely love Dr. Stefco!! she has been a god send and helped me tremendously.
Initial visit went on time and very well. Staff and doctor provided an excellent setting for a solution including options. Staff was courteous and polite and observed the same with other potential patients. A follow-up appointment was scheduled to my convenience and expect the same courteous service received during this initial appointment. Although this would be considered a very minor matter as eye problems go, they took the time and showed me the respect of how important the matter is to me and my concerns regarding such. I am very pleased that I went there and very happy with the proposed scheduled solution also.
