Dr Deupree is proactive in my eye care treatment. I would recommend his care to anyone. He has a very personable and treat each patient with their specif ic condition.
Palm Harbor, FL |
Office staff are very friendly and caring. Dr s are well educated and communicate information / diagnosis. I'd suggest informing patient of needed supplies prior to appt so that they can be more prepared i.e. Sleeping face down requires prep. Also, I'd have charging stations in your office to charge phones. I wasn't aware of the length of the appt and didn't bring a charger. Thanks
in Odessa, FL |
Dr. Deupree was fantastic! Very professional, detailed, and empathetic while listening to my symptoms and throughout the testing procedure. Dr. Deupree talked to me as an equal and explained the results of my examination in clear, concise terms. The staff was top notch and the facilities were immaculate. I would highly recommend Dr. Deupree and the Macular Center to all my friend and family. Jim Dougherty

Very nice and trustworthy doctor. Takes his time with you and explains everything in detail.
Safety Harbor, FL |
Excellent doctor. The wait time is at least 2 hours. They should not schedule so many patients at one time.
in Palm Harbor, FL |
I have been careful with my eyes for 40 years because of a detached retina problem, making me an informed consumer of retina care. This practice is superb. Dr. Deupree is expert as is his partner, Dr. Handza. They both have the supreme confidence you want in a surgeon, but also have sensitivity to the fears of the patient. They clearly explain the seemingly bizarre procedures, putting the patient at ease. The staff is friendly and supportive. And the equipment is fabulous. Lasers have sure come

I am a snowbird from upstate NY. I have been a patient of Dr. Dupree's for two years now and I would prefer to never see another doctor for my Macular degeneration. Dr. Dupree is caring and very personable and makes me feel very comfortable while administering my treatment. Last year before heading back up north for the summer, I asked him if I could take him home with me. I am looking forward to seeing him in the next few weeks. His office staff is also very friendly and knowledgeable.

The office staff was very friendly, the environment was dimly lit and comfortable, the technician was excellent and explained procedures very well. Dr. Deupree was friendly, courteous and took time to get to know me as a patient. Waiting was related to dilation of eyes.

Tampa, FL |
I was able to schedule an appointment at short notice. The reception staff was very welcoming and efficient. The tech was friendly and his review very thorough. Dr. Deupree explained my condition and patiently answered all of my questions. I am feeling relief after one day after using the medication prescribed.

Great staff and great coffee!
in Clearwater, FL |
Was on a holiday on Clearwater beach and hit my eye while surfing, my english is not that good and went to see dr deupree after a friend recommended him. He helped solve my problem and explained exactly what I had. Told me prognosis and recommendations for when I go back to Mexico. Is hard to find physicians in the US that are fluent in spanish!
in Clearwater, FL |
My sight was decreasing for the last couple of years. After seeing several retina specialists I found dr.deupree and he was the first one to give me an actual diagnosis. He even performed diagnostic procedures and gave me excellent information about my prognosis, all on the same visit!. I'll definitely recommend him! Will be coming back to my schedule appointments for sure,
in Starke, FL |
Was worried about my eye condition, after waiting for some time Dr Deupree calmly and firmly explained my condition and how we would solve it, after i left the office I felt like a new man
