Dr Ahmed saved my eye! My retina was seperating by the hour. Barbara, his assistant, arranged the appointment right away. Dr Ahmed drove down from Lakeland, 40 miles away. Diagnozed the problem in minutes and did the procedure right away. He makes it all seem so easy. Impressive and full of gratitude for him and his staff!

Good support staff. Dr is thorough with exams.
in Land O Lakes, FL |
From my first visit in Aug. 2016 to my surgery in Jan. 2017, I felt very relaxed and confident I was in the right doctors office. Dr. Tarabishy himself greets you by coming to the 2nd waiting room to escort you to his office. After looking at my eyes, he calmly and confidently explains everything to you, without alarming you. In Dec. it was decided that I needed surgery. I was awake and aware in the operating room. He is very professional in his job. His bedside manner is wonderful.
in Panama City Beach, FL |

Nice human being with an impressive expertise.
in Zephyrhills, FL |
Dr. Tarabishy is amazing. He is kind and caring to everyone. He is truthful and does what is best for his patients. I had a detached retina, he and his office staff were quick to get me the surgery I needed.
in Wesley Chapel, FL |
Very professional and genuinely caring physician and staff. From the moment I was called in I felt very comfortable and in good hands. I even remarked this to staff, because I was truly surprised that I was feeling this way. Rare is a physician's office or other medical provider that I feel that comfortable and trusting. It wasn't just social pleasantries, it was more, and honestly I cannot explain it. I felt the staff and Dr Tarabishy genuinely cared. I wish all medical providers were like this

Dr TARABISHY AND HIS STAFF are through, professional and personable . You can relax and have confidence that your procedure and you are in competent hands .You are treated as #1 by Dr Tarabishy and his Staff, and that feel good, I get tired of Offices that treat you as a Number or heard you in like cattle. You feel good because you are treated like a person not a number by Dr Tarabishy and his STAFF. Thank You for excellent service ,_&????

It all begins with Jamie, the charming, knowledgeable and helpful First Impressions Administrator. Then thru the door (I never had to sit in the lobby! That's a first!) to be welcomed by Barbara, yet another knowledgeable, experienced medical/technical with a calming, friendly manner that put me at ease for the forthcoming (painless, but I don't know that yet) first evaluation. Then, Da Boss, da Head Honcho, Dr. TARABICHY himself does more detailed testing and fact-finding. Grateful, thats me.
in Thonotosassa, FL |
Friendly, professional, gives directions clearly. Exudes confidence.
Springhill, FL |
Dr. Tarabushy was kind enough to see me on a Sunday when I noticed a vision issue I think that goes why beyond what most doctors would have done. I had to have a laser procedure which he made sure I got in for that Monday after. I would highly recommend him and his wonderful staff. Thanks so much.
