I went to Dr. Kortvelesy because my infant daughter had a condition called 'strabismus'. Dr. Kortvelesy has great bedside manners. He is very patient and explains things thoroughly. My husband and I had many questions & he answered them all and even related to us as a parent. Our daughter ended up having to go through surgery and Dr. Kortvelesy recognized that surgery is a scary time but put us at ease. The surgery went well and Dr. Kortvelesy addressed all our concerns at each of her follow-ups. I highly recommend this doctor!!!
