Dr. Wipfli and St. Luke's are excellent. They spend whatever time is needed to answer all of your questions. I have never felt rushed. Dr. Wipfli and the entire staff at St. Luke's are all very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and helpful. I have recommended both to several of my friends. I wouldn't go anywhere else for any type of eye surgery or procedures.

In addition to great medical care, they are super careful with COVID precautions. All staff and patients wore masks, 3/4 of the waiting area seating had been removed to ensure social distancing, a greeter/checkin person outside taking temperatures, ability to wait in my car and get a text to come in when they're ready, and plexiglass dividers at the checkin/checkout desk.

Dr. Wipfli was one of the kindest and most knowledgeable ophthalmologists I’ve ever met and I know quite a few! He was patient with my grandpa and I and very, very personable. He explained things in ways we were able to understand and gave us recommendations about what to do next! I felt very confident of his opinion and look forward to having him care for my grandpa. My grandpa agrees!

He did my cataract surgery twice. Very good experience. The office in Tarpon Springs is well organized. I do follow ups in Tampa where I freeze from their way too low temp ac. The follow ups in Tampa take hours and cause me to get sinus infections and suffer way beyond what I should!

Dr Wipfli performed my cataract surgery and the process was perfect. Not only did he fully explain my options for the surgery, he continues to follow-up on my care. I had no reservations or concerns for my surgery. Also his staff fill in all the details of the surgical process, they were helpful in my selection of replacement lenses. Great Job for all involved in my care... The best thing is that I can see clearly again!

My experience was life changing. I’d been wearing glasses since I was 40 and at age 86 Dr. Wipfli removed cataracts In both eyes. Dr Wipli placed new lens in both eyes and after wearing glasses for 43 years I no longer wear or need glasses. Through out the procedures Dr. Wipli was explaining each step in the process which had a calming effect of the anxiety I originally felt.
