Patient Comments (4)
in Lady Lake, FL |
Went to get an updated check on my vision and cataract. Needed new glasses and contacts. I received a pair of glasses that do not improve my vision. When I explained this 3 times at follow up visits, I am always told, wait 3months and come back for a recheck. I hear them say that to everyone. I paid over $700 for my glasses and can't use them. It's a disgrace.

My experience with my 5 year old was horrible. The staff would ask what the picture was and could be a milk carton, but the staff would correct my 5 year old by saying "housey". I think from any parent from a professional if going to correct a child the least they could do is pronounce what the picture is properly. Also when given a new prescription for glasses, found out they gave her what an adult would need not a child. Same a lot of time and money take any child under 8 to shands.
in Anthony, FL |
Have always had a pleasant appointment. He explains diagnosis and procedures so I can understand what is going on with my sight. His staff is pleasant and professional and they also explain test that are done and help answer questions. Never had a bad experience.
