After moving from New England a few years ago and having to leave behind an eye doctor with whom I was very comfortable, I am thrilled now to have found Dr. Petitto. She is so thorough, highly skilled and answered all of my questions clearly, despite the complex nature. I'll be proud to treat with her in the future.
