He did an excellent job on my eyes
in Orlando, FL |
Simply put; Dr. Harry Pappas is THE BEST! He possesses all the qualities that I think any patient hopes and prays that every physician and/or medical personnel will have. He is not only very highly skilled and confident but he is also very loving, attentive, caring, and explains everything in detail in a simple way. I love Dr. Pappas and would recommend him to anyone!! Thank You Dr. Pappas!!! Oh....and his staff is great too!....especially the surgical team that assists him with all the surgery!
in Longwood, FL |
I recently had cataract surgery and chose to get a mono vision lens for reading. Dr. Pappas was very thorough explaining the process and expected results. Because one out of four patients' brains won't accept mono vision, Dr Pappas had me try a contact lens for reading to make sure mono vision was for ok for me. I have to say, removing the cataract and getting mono vision was a life changing experience. So thankful for Dr Pappas, his report was probably the best I've experienced.
in Sanford, FL |

From the moment I met Dr. Pappas, he was very friendly and explained thoroughly the procedure of cataract removal. I felt very comfortable in having Dr. Pappas do my surgery as he was highly recommended. The surgery went well. He is very in-tuned to his patient's needs, and is very caring. I highly recommend Dr. Pappas. An excellent physician. I now only need readers after wearing glasses for too many years. Ron Nyary

I was extremely satisfied with the care and service provided by Dr. Pappas and his staff & will definitely recommend him to anyone needing cataract surgery. They were very well organized (all of my concerns and questions were addressed within their surgery literature), it was easy to schedule appointments, and the wait time once in the office was minimal. Thank God & Dr. Pappas; I can see clearly again and only wish I had not put off surgery for so long!!

Dr. Pappas was amazing he has been such a blessing in my life. I was turned down by 2 other surgeons who said my case was too complicated. Dr. Pappas was not afraid of doing my surgery and after 5 years I have my vision back. Dr. Pappas thank you for restoring not only my vision but the quality of my life.

Apopka, FL |
Dr Pappas is a caring and concerned Opthalmologist and is very friendly. He answered all my questions with patience and was careful to observe my health issues. I do feel the surgical area as well as the consultation waiting room areas could use a thorough cleaning. There were dusty baseboards, and dusty equipment.
in Winter Park, FL |
Dr. Pappas and his staff at the Florida Eye Clinic are the very best. It is a very busy office but everyone I encountered was very polite and efficient. Dr. Pappas is a very positive and caring doctor and very clearly explained everything to me in an easy one to one manner so I had no hesitation going into my cataract procedure for both eyes. I would highly recommend Dr. Pappas to any of my friends and family.

in Longwood, FL. |
Dr. Pappas performed my cataract surgery. During my consultation he explained the procedure in detail and had me watch a video to provide me with further understanding. He was very patient, kind, and caring. He explained all my options as to which lenses would provide me with the greatest improvement in vision. When I left his office I felt I had been well informed and very confident that I had found the correct doctor for this procedure. I felt he had my best interest at heart.
in Apopka, FL |
Dr Pappas was very professional yet personable in dealing with my wife's cataract problems. He explained in a manner that we could understand what was going to be done and what to expect after the surgery. He had a significant impact on my wife deciding to have cataract surgery.

Dr. Pappas is a wonderful and caring surgeon. I'm so glad my friend told me about her great experience when she had her cataract surgery. He is very nice and respectful of everyone that I saw him come in contact with. I came all the way from Cape Canaveral to have my surgery and I am very glad I did. My vision is now perfect. I wore glasses for 52 years.

I heartily recommend Dr. Pappas. The entire process of cataract/ lens replacement was very well handled. I found myself thinking that I'm dealing with a REAL professional that not only cares about the OUTCOME of the patient but also respects and deals straightforwardly with the PROCESS. Dealing with the staff was a calming pleasure, and I believe that Dr. Pappas probably even remembers my desires for food! A Great Doctor and a Comforting person!!

Dr. Pappas has taken care of 4 of my relatives plus myself over the years and I couldn't recommend anyone more qualified to put my faith in. Just in my family he has treated us for cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration. I just had cataracts removed from both eyes and it is a whole new world again. In all the years I have known you, you have remained the same caring, comforting, and excellent Dr. and I thank you for remaining true to yourself and your profession.
in Lake Mary, FL |
