Initally good service. My wife had cataract surgery and had to return multiple times in ft myers for tweaking where issue was never really corrected. Last year we had to try and schedule an appointment for my wife diagnosed with cancer. Office staff pushed appointment out for months and we will never consider, suggest or recommend Rick or his office to anyone we know. Very poor professionalism by staff.
