I am very pleased with the work that Dr. Hasty performed on my eye. He is very professional and caring about his patients.
in Lynn Haven, FL |
Dr. Hasty and his entire staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. In the years I've been a patient there (since around 2000), I've never had to wait more than a few minutes to be seen. I've had treatment and surgery from Dr. Hasty, and he's invariably kind, friendly and efficient, in addition to being a great doctor and surgeon. He has become our family opthalmologist, and we're all very satisfied being his patients.

My experience with Dr. Hasty has been completely wonderful. From start to finish Dr. Hasty has made me to feel very comfortable with my cataract removals. His knowledge and expertise eased my mind for a promising outcome. Before surgery I could honestly not see how to use my computer anymore. It is truly a blessing to write this without even glasses. And I owe it all to Dr. H. I might add, he has an amazingly friendly staff too, that is also very helpful and knowledgeable

He is concerned with your level or comfort and strive to make sure your experience is altogether positive.

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?

Dr. Hasty and his staff were wonderful!! Kind, sympathetic, knowledgeable, informative--all I can ask for in a doctor!
in Panama City, FL |
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.

in Southport, FL |
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!!

Dr Hasty and his staff made my whole experience with cataract surgery very comfortable. I would recommend him and his staff very highly.
