Horrible experience! The first time I went doctor said they may be trials available for my condition and to return in 3 months at which time they will do a test. I went there as told and after me and my both taking a day off (he needs to drive me after my eyes are dilated), driving there for an hour and then waited for 3 hours he told me they ran out of the test and they can call me to come back for this 5 min test. I should go see another doctor at Gainsville or Miami. Bad bed side manner.

Dr. Kumar has been amazing. He was the first doctor to take the time to identify what was going on with my eyes. He saved my vision, and was always available to answer and questions or concerns I had. His staff has been wonderful and extremely accommodating. Great doctor with a stellar staff.
