I have never seen a staff as dedicated to making a child feel safe and comfortable with appointments before. Dr. Recko and his staff are so friendly with her and gentle given her age that she actually gets excited when I tell her she has an appointment scheduled with them. Please don't go anywhere lol We need you (at least until she turns 18 or doesn't need glasses anymore)

We are so incredibly thankful for Dr. Recko, he always has a welcoming smile, even behind the mask this time. I'm truly so thankful he has such great bedside manner, makes our sweet girl feel very comfortable and speaks in terms I can understand. Thank you!

provider was not personable at all (especially for being a Pediatric provider) and we felt like he just wanted us in and out and we were wasting his time.

He was very pleasant and calming. When I asked about concerns about myself he offered to check the schedule because we were already there to see if I might be seen by someone and was gracious as to walk us to the front and get me on the schedule due to handle my eye health issues on the same day.

Dr. Recko had to do something to my baby that was painful and very hard to watch, but he did it FAST, and that is the most valuable skill I can imagine in a care provider who routinely has to Clockwork Orange infants.
