Dr. Bellotte and his staff are exceptional. I came to him as high-risk for cataract surgery in both eyes. Now I see 20/30. I went from needing four pairs of glasses to only needing readers. My fears were alleviated by him answering all my questions. He is so caring and professional with a great staff.

I have been a patient of Doctor Bellotte for over 4 years. His treatment of my glaucoma has been wonderful and I always feel lucky to have been recommended to him. I have had two laser surgeries and my glaucoma has been controlled. With two visits a year and eye drops daily I have avoided complications of this chronic disease, with no side effects whatsoever. I highly recommend him.

I just had cataract surgery done on both my eyes by Dr. Bellotte. I call him my miracle maker, this was a life changing experience and I am so glad that he took care of me. I trusted his judgement to do the very best with my eyes and he did.
in Parkland, FL |
Dr. Bellotte diagnosed "well-developed" cataracts and glaucoma in my eyes. It was with some trepidation that I agreed to cataract surgery, but the outcome has been spectacular. I'm once again able to read to my grandchildren. Dr. Bellotte is obviously a skilled surgeon, but he is also a very kind person.
in Lake Worth, FL |
Dr. Bellotte is informative and honest. When giving me his opinion, he gave me all my options and told me which one would be best for my vision. I have had previous surgery and some underlying health problems. Dr. Bellotte was able to give me a recommendation that would be best for my eyes and health. I really appreciated him being up front about the things that wouldn't work so well for me.

I had one on one time with Dr. Bellotte at my consultation, which most eye surgeons simply don't do. He answered all of my questions and is a friendly personable doctor. My vision is incredible after having LASIK surgery at the West Boca Eye Center.

I had not been to an ophthalmologist in many years, but decided to find someone who will listen to my issues and give guidance on how to proceed with my treatment. I've finished two cataract surgeries, both eyes were fitted with the standard monocular lenses. My new sight is amazing. The surgeries went very well and were painless. Great choice I made with choosing Dr. Bellotte.
in Coral Springs, FL |
I recently underwent retinal repair laser surgery by Dr. Bellotte. He is very focused on what he is doing and has assembled a very qualified staff and very busy practice. I was worried about pain from the laser retina repair, but there was virtually none. Once he gets inside the eyeball he moves quickly to skillfully finish the job. Excellent physician!
