Ophthalmology | Male

A native Floridian, I grew up in Coral Gables. I was introduced to the great outdoors at an early age, while fishing in the Everglades and the Gulf Stream and exploring Biscayne Bay. Many summers were spent at Sleep-Away camp in the mountains of North Carolina. After attending Coral Gables High School, I entered Princeton University and graduated in 1976 with a BSE in Chemical Engineering. After completing medical school at Harvard in 1980, I moved to San Francisco for a one-year internship. I then finished a three-year residency in Ophthalmology at Stanford University in 1984.Read more

After my exam today by Dr. Wenkle, I went to the receptionist who advised me of a $40 charge for a Refraction, an assessment to determine whether you need a new prescription and glasses. First, I was never told there would be a $40 charge, and never ask I wanted to pay for this part of the exam. I told the receptionist that it is the doctor's office that is responsible to advise patients of all applicable charges. Dr. Weinke never mentioned that I needed new glasses. Why not!!

Dr. Weinkle has the ability to put you at ease. He explains everything and takes time to be sure you understand. He is very particular and thorough with his testing. He is an excellent surgeon with a caring manner. His staff and office personnel are all friendly, upbeat and well trained. I would recommend him to anyone in the Sarasota area who is looking for a very capable ophthalmologist.

Although I knew cataract surgery was very common, I was nervous since years ago I had Lasik surgery in addition to having an astigmatism. Dr Weinkle?s knowledge, experience and reassurance always put me at ease. His surgical expertise is top notch and my restored vision feels like a miracle. Also, the staff at his Sarasota office and surgical center were very attentive and knowledgeable.

Dr. Weinkle did my cataract surgery. I have lazy eye, astigmatism and mono vision - have worn mono vision contacts for 30 or 35 years - had bifocals in grade school. However, with all those problems, Dr, Weinkle said with confidence, We can fix you up! ... and he did! I can read and drive with no glasses - it is wonderful. He is a very caring, talented surgeon. He also did my husband's cataract surgery. We recommend Dr Weinkle to our friends.
in Sarasota, FL |
I presented to Dr. Weinkle with complex opthalmic issues which he addressed with the utmost care and professionalism. He is a incredibly competent practitioner who far exceeded my expectations with an excellent surgical result. In addition, his office staff is efficient, kind and courteous. I highly recommend Dr. Weinkle without hesitation.
