I have never had a better experience at an eye doctor. I went for a routine examination at my regular doctor and he thought he saw a tear in my eye and he immediately texted a picture to Dr. Venzara, a retina specialist. They wanted to see me immediately, and to be quite honest I was a little nervous. There is not enough space for me to explain all the details, but Dr. Venzara and his staff are amazingly kind, knowledable and thorough and I am extremely thankful he is serving our community

Florida Retina Specialists has been awesome and we highly recommend them. In short, we were in Florida helping our parents. Prior to returning home, my wife developed a detached retina. Dr. Venzara quickly diagnosed the issue and took the time to explain everything. That very evening Dr. Venzara met us at the hospital to repair the detached retina. The entire staff at Florida Retina Specialists is fantastic and we can not give enough praise for the professionalism and care they gave to us.

I had a detached retina and was in need of immediate surgery. Dr Venzara was able to see me immediately. He performed surgery that same day and worked until 1:30 am to save my vision. This was truly appreciated as time was crucial. He is extremely energetic, professional, knowledgeable and genuinely concerned about his patients. He takes the time to explain medical procedures so the patient is thoroughly briefed. His staff is friendly and helpful. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Venzara.

Great Doctor and kind staff. I had to come by ambulance June 2016 on a Friday late afternoon and he and his staff waited until after hours and all were so kind. He made me feel at ease and helped me through the procedure. Every time I come it's the same great experience.

I would give Dr. Venzara ten stars if available. He is gentle, kind, knowledgable all while being totally professional. His staff is reflected in his attitude and they all seem to go above and beyond the call of duty. His office is immaculate and well appointed with the latest in equipment. I must mention some of his staff as well. Donna, Pam, Angel, Judy, and Jules to mention a few.

Excellent. Went to Dr Venzara on an emergency basis when my optometrist noticed a small retinal tear. I got there around 3pm. He saw me (on an emergency basis), did the examination and used the laser to fix the tear that same day. The staff are some of the friendliest that I have encountered anywhere.

What better word is there above excellent? He is caring, knows his calling, and a wonderful person let alone Doctor. I felt in capable hands immediately. He explains al the whys and wherefores so there are no surprises....cannot explain how thorough he is as well as gentle. Made sure I understood every action and reaction. He took me on the rebound since my original doctor for retina detachment had a scheduled three week vacation in Australia. Dr. Venzara jumped in like a pro...

. As a new resident to this area and former patient at Bascom Palmer, I am so grateful to have found Dr. Venzara. I felt at ease with him immediately. His approach is compassionate and caring and he takes the time to explain your medical problem. You never feel rushed. The staff is friendly and caring. I am particularly impressed with his nurse Donna who plays an important role in.your care. I strongly recommend Dr. Vanzara as one of the best in his profession.

Wonderful doctor! Dr. Venzara is the best ophthamologist I have ever visited. His 'bedside' manner and his ability (and willingness) to explain conditions are second-to-none. For years I went to other doctors who could have cared less (next patient). I didn't know what I was missing until I met Dr. Venzara. He (and his staff) are simply outstanding in every regard.
