We pulled into the parking lot at 9:01. We were checked in, checked by nurse and the doctor and back out at our car by 9:29. The exam was thorough and everyone was friendly and respectful to both my child and myself.

Dr. Recko did explain our daughters problem, and our options, but his bedside manner, friendliness, personality are very much lacking. This may be ok in some specialties, but specifically pediatrics, you would expect a friendlier, happier physician who actually at least slightly interacts with the pediatric patient on their level. I'm sure he's a great physician, but coming from a nurse/parent, I'm shocked with his lack of personality, that he's in pediatrics.

Dr Recko is wonderful with our daughter and answers all our questions in each visit. He is an excellent ophthalmologist and has cared for our daughter for years. I feel totally sure that he is thorough and her eyes are well taken care of.

The times we have seen this provider, he has made us feel like we were wasting his time. I will be letting our insurance company know as well and look for a new pediatric optho in our area. Hopefully we can find one who cares more about our son and not make us feel like a nuisance.

very knowledgeable but could do a better job explaining concerns in layman's terms so that patients understand. he's very good with kids some visits he's very polite and others he seems to be a little colder.

Dr. Recko has always taken time to explain things, provide details on treatment options and set our expectations. We can't say enough wonderful things about our experience & the care our little one has received.
