Dr Frantz is at the top of his field for good reason! He is efficient, skilled, polite and effective. I know that I am receiving the BEST EYE CARE available; because after years of stellar performance; Dr. Frantz is still THE most respected eye surgeon in Southwest Florida . I've had cataract surgery, implants for better vision, & removal of scar tissue; all without a "hitch". His office and surgery is a finely oiled machine. Everybody works together to make YOU priority #1.

Dr. Frantz & his staff did an outstanding job of taking care of me during my cataract surgery. Their attention to detail in patient care is the best. All I can say is THANK YOU!

I had cataract surgery 3 weeks ago. had post op visit with him today.My vision is very blurry with shadows. He stated "what did you expect". I said 20/20 vision by now. He said there's never a guarantee and to a tech print her out the papers she signed to read again. During surgery another doctor introduced himself as doing the laser part. I was unaware of another doctor and never signed for him. I was told good vision almost immediately. Will I ever have it? Still need glasses or a contact

Very bad experience. He couldn't diagnose my problem, but referred me to another doc in his clinic whom I had to drive 70 miles round trip to see (he wasn't coming to Naples for 34 days). When I went to Ft. Myers, I didn't see the doc himself, but was seen by a laser vision correction coordinator who told me the doc will perform on me a PRK surgery for $3,500. I went to another doc outside this group who simply told me I had an infection and prescribed antibiotic drops which solved my problem

Beware! Not all of the doctors in his clinic accept the same insurance coverage. Some doctors will perform services that are not covered unless you ask for a different provider. Very confusing. When you question them about it they say that the patient should know - but how? A $50 fee was charged for "Refraction" (eye exam) but would not have been if the doctor had let a different provider in the clinic know do it. Beware! This place will scam you!

Dr. Frantz rendered my mothers eye blind following what should have been routine cataract surgery. She found she had stitches in her eye post laser surgery he said he knew there may have been a complication but yet did nothing to prepare for it and forged ahead. Once her sight returned in that eye we went to another surgeon for the other eye. Same complication but good outcome. Frantz charged more than the insurance paid too and when we wrote for an explanation, our letter was ignored.
