Patient Comments (4)
Gainesville, FL |
After two exams and two pairs of glasses purchased I have still not achieved any form of satisfaction, I found this practice to be uncaring and unprofessional in the extreme, at the second revisit, I felt that I was taking up their valuable time with little consideration for my concerns. Instead of measuring for refraction, they simply used the glasses that I was already using and proceeding to write a new order.

If I could leave zero stars I would!!! The most unprofessional staff we have ever encountered. Dr. Fanous has no compassion for his patients whatsoever. He will not contact you to explain any results and the staff reassures you that you are his top priority which is obviously not the case!! Look for another Dr. if at all possible.

It is a challenge when relocating to a new area to find a competent, caring physician that is compatible with one's needs and expectations. I am so happy that I decided to trust the care of my eyes to Dr. Fanous. He is excellent in his field and I trust his knowledge, skills and decision making in regard to my care. On my very first visit, I listened carefully to what his patients in the waiting area were saying and everything was so positive. He is a gem; I wish there were more stars!
