Dr Nezgoda is by far one I the best physicians I have ever seen. His credentials speak for themselves. He is by far the best retina doctor in palm beach county. I would recommend him without reservation to my family and friends.

Dr. Joe Nezgoda is an amazing surgeon and person. He repaired my retina detachment and was with me the whole way. He saw me that afternoon and I was in the OR the next morning. I’ve never had a doc that I felt cared as much about my healing as I did. His staff is super friendly too.
