I was truly impressed with the care I received the week before last. Great care was taken for my health and for the health of the staff. I really appreciated it. Dr. Benz is always super. He is so calm and caring. I would recommend him in an instant. The whole staff at the Cypress office is great and friendly. Great office.

My primary eye Doctor advised me after thorough testing that there was a hole in the macular in one of my eyes. He referred me to a Retina Specialist. I saw Dr. Matthew Benz in September of 2019. His assistant performed tests. I was advised by Dr. Benz that there NO HOLE found in the macular of my eye. My visit with him was short and abrupt. I was advised by my primary eye Doctor to follow up in 6 months. I went to see a different Retina Specialist. After thorough testing the Doctor advised me that I DO have a hole in the macular of my eye as well as Macular Degeneration. I AM EXTREMELY CONCERNED AND DISAPPOINTED BY THE LACK OF PROFESSIONAL CARE RECEIVED FROM DR. MATTHEW BENZ.

Dr. Benz is a no nonsense doctor. Pre-meeting testing was completed competently and skillfully by office personnel. Dr. Benz reviewed results, performed his examination, and explained everything succinctly. He answered questions and made recommendations simply and clearly.

Due to scheduling difficulties with my normal Dr. with this group I have been seeing Dr. Benz recently for monthly eye injections for DME. Very pleasant and capable young man. He is always willing to answer questions. He makes a tense situation a bit more comfortable.

He has done of great job of preserving the vision in my right eye. I would recommend Retina Consultants to anyone that has an eye problem. I've been treated there for over 10 years -- went from 20/100 to 20/40.
