I found Dr. Hasty to be a very efficient, professional, knowledgeable person and I am so glad I used him for my cataract surgery, he is the BEST in this state as far as I am concerned.
Panama City Beach, FL |
Dr. Hasty's staff was very pleasant, but he was rude and demeaning. He dismissed my concerns by belittling me with a barrage of questions in what felt like a police interrogation: "How many times a day does your vision get blurry? 5? 10? How long? 2 minutes? 2 hours? You're not telling me anything. How long did you use the warm soak? 5 minutes? 10? 15?" When I expressed concern about a lump on my eyelid, he told me that I obviously didn't do what I was supposed to do after an infection. Really?

I had cataract surgery on both eyes in 2016. Dr. Hasty did my left eye in April and my right eye in October. The results were exceptional. Dr. Hasty's skill in his field is equally matched by his care and concern for his patients. His office staff is second to none.

Dr. Hasty removed both of my cataracts and put in lens implants. I couldn't be happier with the experience. He was kind, and patient. He talked through the entire surgeries telling me exactly what he was doing at all times. I never realized how bad my vision was. The world sparkles!!
