    How was your appointment with Dr. Trief?

    Nov 08, 2022
    Dr. Trief has amazing credentials (she went to Harvard, Oxford, UPenn, was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, etc) and is a warm, caring person who explains things clearly. The staff is very courteous and professional and the office is impeccably clean. I felt she seemed like a true healer and feel extremely confident that she will do a great job in my cataract surgery. I went to her for a third opinion after getting conflicting advice from other ophthalmologists.

    What’s a board certification and why is it important that my provider has one?

    A board certification represents a provider’s dedication to ongoing training in one or more specialties, including the completion of intensive exams. While not all specialties have board certifications, if your provider does have one they’ve taken the extra step to master their specialty and to keep up with the latest advancements in their field.
