Was very anxious to have cataract surgery. This staff and Dr. Majka put me at ease. I would recommend this office for any vision needs.They treated me with respect, kindness and patience. Thank you Leonor Aguirre

I recommend Dr Majka and his entire professional staff when needing an Opthamologist. He is also one of very few doctor's that will see patients with no insurance "Self-Pay" in his specialty. I have referred my friends and family and they are very satisfied with the professionalism medical care they have received of Dr Majka & his staff.

Doctor won’t listen. It just seems he is listening. You speak about symptoms but he would turn his back on you and do something with computer. As I have figured out, the doctor’s notes are being generated in a form of a template. My notes are nothing in common with reality. Because of these wrong notes I had hard time to understand why my insurance was refusing to approve MRI ordered by Dr. Majka and to schedule an appointment with a Neuro-ophthalmologist.

Excellent doctor! I appreciated how he gave careful thought in recommending a treatment plan. I have already recommended him to my friends.

I have been a patient of Dr. Majka and his staff for over 4 years. I am delighted to 'tell all' about the wonderful experience's that i have had with Dr, Majka and his staff. I have worked for 40 years with the DOD and if only that agency could operate at the complete skill of the Dr. and his team. I would, will and have recommend Texas Eye Clinic to anyone. Thank you Dr. Majka and team. ed P Bayside , Tx.

Dr. Majka is a wonder caring doctor. He preformed surgery on my eye and did an excellent job. He also called me personally to ask how I was doing. I give him five stars. I recommend him to anyone needing any kind of eye surgery!

I was never treated with so much professionalism from the front desk to the end o the process Thank You Ernest Bernier
Ernest, it is a pleasure to treat you with excellence! Thank you for allowing us to take care of all of your eye care needs!
in Taft, TX |
So happy to be referred here, best advice I ever took in medical care for my eyes. From beginning to end the whole office staff including doctor had to be the most professional yet humorous that I have come across. I was answered to where I could understand everything, Vanessa was helpful the whole way including Letty who verified my benefits right then and there for surgery the following week.

At my six-month check-up visit since a transformational cataract surgery, he greeted me warmly, compassionately. Professional and dedicated to superior doctor-patient relations, he's heart-centered, with wisdom & expertise unparalleled. Since surgery, I feel more confident in my life, physically stronger, mentally more alert, emotionally more balanced, & spiritually full of gratitude to God. Dr. Majka is a truly gifted individual who knows the eyes are the window to heart, soul & spirit.
in Corpus Christi, TX |
I recommend Dr. Majka to all my friends who are looking for a competent, professional eye doctor. I like his soft spoken manner and the way he thoroughly explains everything. I would just like the staff who calls for appointment reminders to remind us if we are getting our eyes dilated so that we can get someone to drive us afterwards. Thanks!

in Alice, Texas |
I love Dr Majka's care and patience. He has helped me recover my vision and there is a lot more he can do but we are taking it a step at a time. I am so lucky to have such a good doctor to care for the recovery of my vision problems.
Portland, TX |
The stars speak for themselves. I the office is brand new very clean. They have a surgery cent right next door brand new as well and very clean. The wait time was impeccable. I was greated not only on way in but on my way out. Schedule an apt was so easy and effort less. I will definitely be returning as a patient.
in Alice tx |
Pleasant experience overall from beginning to end. The administration is helpful and able to explain the random wall made that in my opinion is absurd. I was able to be at ease with my assistant Mrs Alaniz prior to my visit with Dr majka. He was professional and personal. My wife has an appointment toour. Can't wait for my cataract surgery and continued care with him
in Corpus Christi, TX |

Excellent from the first office visit! Thankful that Dr Majka is here in Corpus Christi.

Dr, Majka and his staff are all friendly and professional. They all take the time to answer questions and explain procedures. He did both of my cataract surgeries and I had no problems at all after the surgery. Dr. Majka is also my husband's doctor and he takes very good care of Richard's eyes.
in Rockport, TX |
Dr. Majka evaluated my eyes - confirmed earlier diagnosis by local doctor. Cataract surgery in both eyes. Could not be more pleased with Dr. Majka, his expertise, quality of service, facilities and staff. Best experience with medical team. ever.
