Dr. Eaton is thorough, professional and more than willing to answer questions. After 2 visits, I have great confidence in him. The office is bright and spacious and staff friendly and helpful. Very good experience all the way around.
Naples, FL |
The absolute worse! Patients were herded around like cattle and more than 30 people were crowded into a waiting room (for 2 doctors) with not enough chairs. After 2 hours of waiting I saw the doctor for 3 minutes. He ordered me a scan then sent me home. An hour later his office call asking me to come back next week to review results. No way am I going back there. They also charged me $2.00 for a one page copy of my scan. Ridiculous when he makes over $10 million off Medicare.

I'm a 58-year-old RN. I want the best there is in SW Florida for my father and his wet form of Age-related Macular Degeneration. I bring him to Dr. Alexander Eaton in the Fort Myers Office. I've never seen Dr. Eaton smile nor does he have a proclivity to chat; but that isn't important to me nor my father. I am impressed with his Duke education, global activities in staying informed of new treatments and his participation in studies. As with ALL providers please ask if you don't understand.
