The staff of Dr. Mav was awesome yesterday. I have diabetic neuropathy. Not only did I have a normal check-up for a post-cataract removal (performed by Dr. Thomas six weeks ago), Dr. Mav also noticed some swelling in my right eye. As a result, I had a Fluorescein Angiography taken and the young lady who performed the procedure was very kind and tolerant. Finally, Dr. Mav gave me an injection behind my eye to help relieve the swelling. I appreciate the courteous and friendly staff. Thank you.
This was my first visit and I was pleased with the way I was treated. Looking forward to future visits being the same.
A++ Everyone very professional. The best I’ve seen! I can’t say enough about the doctor and personnel.

Dr. Mavrofrides is the best, along with his staff. I am well pleased, and even trusting my daughter to him.
