The staff was very professional, and followed Covid protocol. I felt comfortable during both the consult and the Lasik surgery. The surgery itself went fantastic, no pain and the Dr Concool talked me through every step of the process.! Before I was nearly blind but now I can see 20/15!!! This is by far the best thing I have every done.

From day one Dr. Concool and his staff have been nothing but exceptional. Their kindness and professionalism are exactly what I was looking for when choosing my LASIK team. The procedure was fast and painless, leaving me with 20/20 vision the following day. I would highly recommend Dr. Concool for any of your eye care needs.

After having astigmatisms corrected, cataracts removed, and multifocal lens put in place, I can see!!!! Dr Concool was professional, and answered my questions respectively! I can genuinely say thank you for Dr Concool's efficient and skillful services, and for his helpful and friendly staff. I highly recommend this surgeon.

I had astigmatism correction and trifocal implants by Dr. Concool...absolutely the best thing I have ever done for myself. Three days after the surgery (which is how long it takes for the dilation to subside) I was seeing 20/20. That day, I threw away all of my reading glasses and I haven't looked back. The procedure was pain free and recovery was quick and smooth. Dr. Concool is an absolute expert and his staff is friendly, helpful, and professional. I cannot endorse him strongly enough!

I would highly recommend Dr. Concool and his staff. I choose him to perform my laser cataract surgery and was very happy with the whole experience. Everything about the procedure was explained clearly beforehand, and the procedure itself was smooth and painless. After a lifetime of very bad nearsightedness, I now have 20/15 vision!

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.
