My mom got in the car and cried because of the pain and humiliation.

I'm very angry at the experience my mother just had with Dr. Pfister. My mom is a retired RN and knows how to treat patients with dignity. She did not receive that type of treatment from this doctor. When she was in his office getting prepped for her cataract surgery she moved her head to avoid the light (her eye was clamped open and the light was suddenly turned on) she was told to "get her butt back over there or she'd contaminate the area". She was in a lot of pain and wasn't given proper relief or taken seriously for that matter. She has a high pain threshold and is not a complainer at all and she sobbed when she finally got in the car. I'm very angry about the way my mom was treated and would recommend people avoid this man at all costs. You deserve better.

Wonderful Doctor

My mother had both eyes done by Dr Pfister and she has her vision back. Even better then when she was younger she stated! Be prepared to wait to be seen but with specialist that's expected. So happy with results father is going in for a consult!

Rushed, no questions

Very rushed; Seemed like everyone gets the same diagnosis. No questions asked, no suggestions for minor problems, just get to the money maker part of the treatment...sugery

Patient

Dr. Pfister has operated on both of my eyes. The first surgery was about 3 years ago on my left eye for a cataract surgery by another doctor that went bad and damaged the cornea. Dr. Pfister performed a partial cornea transplant on that eye and it restored my vision in that eye. When my right eye recently required cataract surgery.Dr. Pfister was my choice for this surgery. Everything went perfectly and I now have excellent vision in my right eye and am seeing better than I have for several years.

Rude and Abrupt

He told me that my visit to the ER and an optometrist were wrong because neither an ER doctor nor an optometrist "knew anything" about eyes. Yet, he told me to continue the medication I'd received from the ER doctor. He gave complicated instructions as to the schedule of its use; when I asked him to write it down he said, No, you'll have to remember it. I'm in my mid 70's and have trouble retaining information. And he wanted to schedule me for eye surgery immediately; intimidated me by saying You want to see, don't you? I opted to get a second opinion which was that I did Not Need Surgery and that it was a highly questionable recommendation! I did not have the eye problem that Dr. P said I had. At the time of my visit, I was feeling weak and almost sick -and he was so rude. Also, my eyes were swollen and red and yet he wanted me to have 'surgery' scheduled at once. I would never send anyone to this doctor.
