Dr. Rowsey was my doctor when I had my cornea transplant over 40 years ago at the Dean McGee Eye Institute. I have the same cornea and my current Opthalmologist is one of his students Dr Soper. I just wanted to thank you for the prayers and the gift of sight that you gave me. Thank you

Amazing doctor!!!
Largo, FL |
This is a wonderful man he performed my post op visit, after Dr. John did my cataract surgery. He is such a genuine, kind loving man, who you can tell loves what he does every day. He made me feel right at home and I felt in such capable hands. I can see better than I have ever in my life thanks to this practice and I no longer need to wear my glasses that I have been wearing for over 30 years. I feel truly blessed that I have found such a wonderful Ophthalmologist practice.
Thank you for the kind words we are glad we were able to help you!
