He is a self centered male chauvinist who gets pleasure out of humiliating people. I will never go back to him nor will I recommend him to anyone. I WILL tell everyone I know of my experience and advice them NOT to go to him.

I had a great experience with Dr. Concool and his staff. The process was effortless and flowed seamlessly. I had a consult for Lasik on Monday, Wednesday I had the procedure done, and on Thursday my vision was BETTER than perfect, at 20/15!! His staff is professional and accommodating. The doctor himself is very personable and professional. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Concool to anyone looking to have Lasik performed.

Dr. Concool knows what he’s doing. Did laser on my right eye and I never had a problem but now my left eye that I had done by another Dr has too much pressure in it and has signs of glaucoma. Dr. Concool is treating me and keeping a close eye on me. I wouldn’t trust any other Dr. with my eyes but Dr. Concool

Dr. Concool was my VA Vet Choice doctor to repair my cataracts that had become VERY aggressive over the previous year. After his exam he told me of the options and explained the expected results, procedures and cost. He said the standard operation would not correct ALL my problems. So I went full boat and got everything done at once. Dr. Concool asked if I wanted to use distance or reading glasses. I said reading. He was wrong. Ten months after the surgery's I don't use either. Thank you!

Just had my 1 day fallow up appt with Dr Concool @ Panhandle Laser Vision Institute and my vision went from almost a -7 (in contacts) to a 20/15. I could not see this good with my contacts! Just AMAZING! The entire process went vary smooth I had NO pain or discomfort! After the procedure i was a little blurry (to be as expected) but i went home and took a nap like he said and I woke up and my vision was so clear. I cant leave out his staff they were just as AMAZING vary informative and helpful!!

Amazing! That's the only word to describe Dr. Concool's laser cataract surgery. Quick, painless and the results are nothing short of astounding. I was told about a year ago that "eventually" I would need cataract surgery and by the time I had moved to Gulf Breeze 6 months ago I was shocked how quickly my eyes had deteriorated. My left eye was so bad, if I closed my right eye it was like looking through waxed paper. Once my left eye was fixed, I could tell then my "good" right eye was also much w

Dr. Concool performed LASIK on both of my eyes. The procedure was well explained, well performed, and so quick! Best of all, I see 20/15 now! The post-surgery appointments take less than 5 minutes. Dr. Concool and his staff are all thorough, professional and courteous. Excellent, life-changing experience!

As a 28 year career military aviator and now as a civilian, my eyes are very important to me and my occupation. Dr Concool did an outstanding job on the LASIK procedure on both my eyes. I am free from contacts and glasses and have 20/15 vision.

Dr. Concool is amazing! He knows how to put his patients at ease about the procedure. I just had my appointment for the actual procedure and spent the rest of the day crying because I could already see, it was foggy but I was so mesmerized by all the new things I could see. The staff in the Pensacola office have been great. I have already given out recommendations to some of my friends. I am 200% happy with the quality of care given by the staff and Dr. Concool. If I had to do it again, I would.

Dr. Concool was fabulous through the whole process. He explained the entire procedure and makes you feel at ease. The process took no time at all, but has made all of the difference. Being a state trooper not having to worry about glasses was a huge safety concern. With the surgery I now have 20/15 vision. My only regret is that I didn’t do this years ago.

Dr. Concool was recommended to us by a close friend of ours who's mother was treated by Dr. Concool. So we are now performing the same. We highly recommend Dr. Concool and his surgical skill, after care, as well as his cordial manner. We cannot thank him enough and cannot think or consider another Doctor to perform the procedure my wife experienced from him.

Not only is Dr. Concool an extraordinary surgeon, he cares even after surgery. His follow up is wonderful as is his accessibility. I could hardly believe he responded to a concern on New Year’s Day at 7 a.m., and solved my problem. If all doctors were like him, the world would truly be a better place. I certainly recommend him without reservation. In fact, I truly feel sorry for any one not being under his care for cataract surgery.

Dr. Concool has exactly the personality that I needed to convince me to have lasik and to make sure I followed all directions post surgery. He was firm in giving directions but with good reason. I am so pleased and my only regret is that I did not have this surgery much sooner. Amazing results . . . crystal clear 20-15 vision within an hour of having lasik surgery. If you are debating whether or not to have this surgery I would encourage to do it and choose Dr. Concool . . . he is top notch

I had lasik surgery 20 years ago. Over the last 4-5 years it began wearing off. I went to Dr. Concool for a lasik touch up. He suggested that cataract surgery would be a good option even though I didn't have cataract yet. Had the surgery and it worked out beautifully! Seeing 20/20!

I recently had cataract surgery with multi focal lens implants in both eyes and less than a month following surgery I have 20-20 vision. Dr. Concool AND HIS TEAM are experienced and professional and available any time consultation is needed. The Dr's evaluation and setting expectations were 'spot on' and I would recommend this procedure with Dr. Concool to anyone interested in having great vision. Francis Clark
