THE BEST DOCTOR! 6 years ago, Dr. Taney performed emergency lazar surgery for my sudden and extensive retinal tears, and through the years, he’s expertly managed and remedied every eye issue as they occurred. When diagnosed with a macular hole requiring surgery, the only reason I wasn’t completely terrified was that I truly believed I was in the best hands with Dr. Taney. This sense of trust got me through the entire ordeal including the face-down recovery. The surgery was a success, with an even better outcome than we hoped for. I know I will have to deal with eye issues as they arise but feel safe and secure with Dr. Taney and his extremely professional and efficient staff at The Retina Group of Florida. Thank you to an excellent team!

Called for an appt as my husband had been treated for macular pucker by him. When I told the girl his symptoms including blurring she said we had to see a neuroopthamologist. Got a referral to another opthomoligist (insurance didn’t allow for a neuro one) who found that ludicrous. It’s too bad that dr Taney is badly represented by an office staff member and forced us to be treated by someone that didn’t have his records.

Dr. Taney, our retina specials for many years, heads the Retina Group of Florida comprising 12 offices and 11 physicians. On a Sunday, my husband saw floaters in one eye. On Monday he was in the office, operated on Tuesday, post op visit on Wednesday--three different doctors because of the emergency of the problem. Each of the three doctors was proficient, knowledgeable, caring, confident. I cannot recommend this entire group highly enough.

Horrible Doctor! Find someone else to see. This guy only wants to make money. He charged me twice for one exam, knowingly refused to correct it. Submitted it multiple times to my insurance for things he never did. Pure fraudster! Could care less about the patients condition, just wants your money! Dont walk, run from this guy!

Dr. Taney took very good care of my post-cataract surgery issues while on vacation in Fl. He was excellent and his staff was very professional, personable. I was very impressed with his staff and their patience dealing with seniors.

Today was the second time I saw Dr. Taney. Nowadays, it is rare to find a very knowledgeable physician who takes his time with a patient like Dr. Taney does. His demeanor is most reassuring, calm, and positive. He listened attentively, and did not rush me out of his office. I felt a genuine concern for my well-being. I am planning to recommend Dr. Taney to my family and friends.

Dr. Taney is the most professional individual I have encountered in my 66 years. He is effective, thorough, forthright and compassionate. In just over three months, I have experienced tremendous improvement in my macular degeneration. Also, his staff is friendly and efficient.
