Dr. Trief instilled my confidence. This highly intelligent and skilled ophthalmological surgeon performed my cataract removal surgery. The staff in her office at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital are so welcoming and efficient. Even the staff in the operating room could not have been nicer or more accommodating. They laid the anxiety of myself and my husband. They made the experience manageable and pain-free . I would highly recommend Dr. Trief as a patient and retired registered nurse!!
