Dr. Militello did cataract surgery on both of my eyes and implanted lenses that correct for astigmatism so that I no longer need to wear glasses. He is an excellent eye surgeon but he is so much more than that. I can not think of a single thing to complain about. I felt relaxed and comfortable about the entire procedure. I have a great deal of confidence in his ability. His procedures greatly simplify preparation and recovery. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I am a retired RN.

Dr Millitello is an excellent Dr and eye surgeon. He is a good Listener and has a great faculty to be patient in answering all and any question you may have.He is an honest physician and does not order tests or treatment that is not necessary. He and his staff treat everyone very kindly as if you were family. We are happy to recommend Dr Millitello for all your eye care needs. Mary & Joe Santa Maria Spring Hill Florida

I went to Dr. Militello for cataract surgery in July 2017. My cateract was so advanced that I was literally only seeing out of one eye. I became very anxious in the operating room thinking there was no way I would ever be able to see out of that eye again. Dr Militello and his staff (including the Anesthesiologist) were all very patient and kind and took the time to explain the procedure and calm me down. It became a positive experience for me and my eyesight is great!
in Spring Hill, FL |
I just recently had a cataract removed from each eye. The procedures were performed within six weeks. The entire process was handled very professionally and efficiently by both Dr. Militello and his staff. Dr. Militello was very reassuring and all of the medical personnel that I encountered made me feel that my care and comfort was of utmost importance. I now have 20/20 visioin in both eyes. I highly recommend Dr. Militello without hesitation.

Dr. Militello performed cararact surgery on both my eyes. The whole process was easier then a dentist visit and besides that, I no longer have to wear glasses after 50 years (I do need readers). I would highly recommend Dr. Militello, plus his whole staff is professional and very helpful.
in Spring Hill, FL |
My experience with Dr. Mititello was much better than I expected. I did not have any discomfort from the procedure he completed on my eyelids. I would and will be using his services again as needed. His office staff was very understanding and helpful. Thank you for your efforts on my behalf.

I am a glaucoma patient and have never felt more comfortable with a doctor. Also had cataract surgery which was remarkable. Only word to explain this doctor is outstanding
in Spring Hill, FL |
Actually, the whole cataract procedure was a pleasant one for me. Not much different than getting a hair cut. I would have liked to seen some TVs in the pre op room, as your laying in a cot for an hour with nothing to do.
in Brooksville |
I needed cataract surgery. Dr. Militello and his staff were extremely knowledgeable, efficient and most of all, caring. I had lots of questions and I was quite apprehensive. They treated me like an intelligent human. They were sensitive to my fear, answered all of my questions in language that I could understand, and cared about me as a patient. Both surgeries (3 weeks apart) went perfectly. I would recommend Dr. Militello and his staff to everyone who needs eye care. They are 5 stars.

Cataract surgery can be scary; not with Dr. Militello and his staff - even during surgery he put me at ease. The expertise and concern is apparent. I now have two perfect vision eyes and feel like a new person. Thank you Dr. Militello and your staff for anticipating my needs and treating me with respect.

Got great care with great results from two surgeries. Found Dr. Militello to be be very professional, informative, very thorough in explaining my condition, various options, treatment procedures, expected results, and projected recovery times. Additionally, his followup was outstanding to include personal phone calls to check my condition post-surgery. Dr. Militello would be a great choice for any eye care situation.

I would highly recommend Dr. Militello to my friends and family...he is the best!

Dr. Militello is well-qualified, professional, personable and a good communicator. He explains any issues, what can be done to rectify problems and expected results.

I went to Dr. Militello for cataract surgery. I also suffer from macular degeneration and do not like anyone or anything touching my eyes. I have been dealing with minimal vision and was nervous about this surgery altogether. The staff was friendly and caring, I was put at ease. The doctor was amazing and fast! All of my questions were answered and the results- amazing! I can see! Thank you to the everyone who assisted with my care from start to finish, you are all wonderful!

When you have worn thick heavy glasses like I did for most of my life and you have an opportunity to remedy the problem like I did, you are concerned about who will be the doctor that will perform the surgeries. I can highly recommend Dr. Militello you. What he did for me was truly life altering. I am 73 years old and now can go without glasses period. He is a kind and thoughtful doctor, explaining exactly what he would do and then doing it skillfully.

Dr. Militello was wonderful . I had cataract surgery done on both eyes and surgery went perfectly. I can now read and see distance perfectly without glasses. I never experienced a moment of pain or discomfort.

Dr. Militello was recommended by a long term friend. My problem was diagnosed as cataracts. Dr. Militello carefully explained my options and as a result I chose to have him perform cataract surgery. The surgery was painless and the results were very good. I now have clearer vision in my left eye and have scheduled to have him perform surgery on my right eye in September. I highly recommend his service to those in need of eye care.

in New York, NY |
At every stage of my cataract surgery, Dr. Militello explained in terms I could understand, and gave me options. The result was beyond my wildest expectations. I experienced no pain or anxiety .
in Spring Hill, FL |
I saw Dr. Militello four different times from 5/30/2014 - 2/5/2015 for intensely burning, inflamed eyes. I told him I was also having blurred vision and double vision. He said I had blepharitis. He spent no more than five to ten minutes with me each time. I followed his instructions for home treatment, but the condition did not improve. I then saw a neuro-ophthalmologist and was diagnosed with thyroid eye disease. I don't think he is knowledgeable, thorough diagnostician. I don't recommend him!
