One star for office staff. Everything else is way below, like 0 stars. 2 to 3 hours before you get 3 minutes with Dr. McManus. He Cost my wife 65% of her eye sight in one eye. Stay clear of this Doctor!

Always in a rush and not thorough. Less concerned with effective treatment than saving time. That results in ineffective treatment and degraded eye health.

Dr. McManus is great. He knows so much and is so experienced yet he is kind and down to earth. I've seen him for an emergency service as well as routine care. He is great in both situations. You can't find a better eye doctor than Dr. James McManus.

Ted in Orlando, FL – Mar 26, 2017
Nothing but positive things to say about Dr. McManus and his remarkable staff. He performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes in October and both of my husband's in November. We are are both very pleased with the results and the professionalism and courtesy shown to both of us. He even took the time to call us after each of the surgeries to check on how we were doing and to ask if we had any questions.

Very cheerful and efficient, although must be advised that each apt will take at least 1 1/2 hours, waiting to see various tiers of service.
