Real Patient Reviews

4.9 Star Average on Google & Facebook

The Tidewater Eye center, Academy Avenue location, is superb in all areas. The employees are very professional and treats me with the up most respect. I highly recommend them to all my friends and family. My doctors, Dr Elkins and Dr. Iacubucci, are the best in my opinion and has been proven themselves through my personal experiences and through my numerous appointments.

I would like to let everyone know that Tidewater Eye Center is the best place for your eye care needs. Dr. Pavilack and his crew are the best and very thorough and professional. I have been going to them since 2012 and I can truly say I am more than satisfied. I have had two cornea transplants and Dr. Pavilack did both surgeries. I tell all my friends to go to Tidewater Eye Center.

I recently had a cornea transplant done by Dr. Pavilack. I consider it to be life-saving surgery. When you can’t see, there isn’t a lot to look forward to. He literally made me feel reborn.

Dr. Pavilack is the best of the best! He is the eye surgeon that folks need to see after another surgeon has botched their eye up! This happened to my hubs and Mark Pavilack has done an amazing job! Hubs eye no longer clouds up. Doc will take great care of you.

Superb bedside manner. Dr. Pavilack is extremely intelligent and takes time to explain all details. I am so grateful I got a second opinion from him. He truly is a gem in his field.

Everyone on site is super nice! I thought I’d be left with no sight when my husband went on deployment, but I called and got my issue fixed after a quick 10 minute call. 🙂
