    There cannot possibly be a better guy than Doc Almeida! Have had two retinal surgeries, a year apart on different eyes, and have been extremely pleased with the care and results that he has provided. I feel that he takes great care to ensure you the best possible outcome, and is very punctual about getting back with you when questions or concerns arise. TOP NOTCH DOC in his field.....highly recommended.

    I am thankful for Dr. Almeida every single day. I cannot say enough wonderful things about him, and he is probably the best doctor (of any specialty) that I've ever seen. I was referred to him by an ophthalmologist who I didn't even know when I suddenly started suffering from a rare eye disease, and I couldn't have been matched with a better doctor. He's always willing to try something new, and he's extremely knowledgeable. I can see because of Dr. Almeida, and what could be better than that

    When first time I visited Dr.David I was a little bit skeptical. After consulting him I am blown away at how simple it was I am very happy that I found Dr. David as an eye surgeon. I would recommend him to any family, friend or stranger as an eye specialist.

    Choosing Dr. David's clinic for my eye surgery is the best decision I ever made. The staff is caring and helpful, and my eyesight is fantastic nearly two years later. I visited a couple of doctors' offices but I found Dr. David is an excellent professional who cares about your whole well being. I would like to recommend him to everyone who is looking for best eye care.

    I wish more ophthalmologist offices could be like Dr. David's Clinic. The entire staff is friendly, efficient, and professional from start to finish with a Zen-like office. Dr. David is very thorough and efficient with his work. I like that they ask me questions and let me know how to improve my own eye care at home.

    Dr. David was more than thorough and took as much time as needed with me. He didn't rush me or talk down to me as many doctors do. He explained all my options and what he thought to be my best options.
