HORRIBLE! STAY AWAY! Giving 1 star is very generous. If there was an option to give neg stars, I would. Being a licensed health care professional, I can honestly say that this Staman should have never been given a license to practice! He NEVER gives informed consent as he specifically states: “I am the doctor, why would I ever give the patient a choice?” He waited 7 days to perform surgery for a detached retina (should always be done within 24 hrs) & caused blindness! NO person skills at all!

The staff is amazing friendly kind and Interactive and seems to handle the overload of patients with professionalism and care. However Dr James Staman was short and rather apathetic and actually made it quite apparent that he was tired and ready to go. It appears he had a long day and was the only doctor but each patient should be treated with care diligence and made to feel important especially regarding the health of their eyes I was quite appalled and disgusted at his arrogance and lack o

My mother, who is 88, has gone to Dr S repeatedly. She literally screams in pain from her treatments for macular degeneration.

only gave 1 star because there is no option for "0". Do NOT seek treatment here! Husband was treated by James Staman who is the WORSE dr. around! NO bedside manor at all. He does not care at all about his patients. He is not patient friendly, does not give ANY informed consent, does not ask for patient consent. He does not acknowledge any family member with the pt and gets angry when he is questioned. We were told verbatim: "Why would I give the patient a choice? I am the doctor & the one that i

He is an amazing surgeon , the best Retina surgeon around. He however needs to do a little work on his bedside manner, but his staff is truly Amazing. If it wasn't for his staff and his perfection for surgery I'm not sure I'd go back. But employees like Ashley and Gilbert make it worth my while every time

couldn't ask for better professional help BUT the wait was entirely too long, waited 1 1/2 hours before being seen. was advised to wear a jacket as office was chilly. The office was COLD, there were not enough chairs to seat all patients either. Almost left office without being seen I was so frustrated. Glad I waited as Dr. Staman and assistants were great!

Dr Staman is a very pleasant doctor he knows what he is doing he feels to important to share the details your condition with you. Shut up and pay the bill and do what your told. you have no part of the decision making process The office sends a bill for services already paid for if you visit the office once every 6 months they send you a bill every month recreate charges and argue with you that you owe this money even though you have proof you paid it.

I like Dr. Shaman but sometimes gen doesn't explain what his thought process isn't to the patients so that the patient has a CLEAR understanding of the possible procedures they'll be going through. Sometimes I feel like you can ask him any question so because he gets flustered and becomes slightly rude. Staff is always amazing though. That's why I keep coming back. Aurelia is so great inside the exam rooms.

Dr. Staman was very concerned with my retinal detachment and went above and beyond to get me into surgery to get it fixed.

Staff is excellent very helpful and caring. Dr. Stamin is great. Though the wait is absolutely ridiculous. Extremely overbooked for the time each Dr. takes with patients Either more doctors, bigger building with better parking or book appts according to actual treatment time required. The only game in the area should know not to add stress to their already stressed out patients.

A move to Florida after multiple retinal detachments and procedures in another state was made much easier knowing that Dr. Staman and the Florida Retina Institute were here to carry on with my vision monitoring. Would definitely recommend to others who need this level of care.

Very thorough and insightful. Friendly and polite with a personal touch that sets great physicians apart. Genuine concern was evident immediately and I was able to get in with no wait time. I highly recommend this physician. He seemed to have a great rapport with his staff and that always makes me believe they are a family instead of an office full of employees that only tolerate each other.
