My internist highly recommended Dr. Patipa and I was very pleased with my experience. The office staff was extremely pleasant and very professional.
in Wellington, FL |
I consider Dr Patipa to be one of the best surgeons I've had the pleasure of dealing with. I had a very bad fall and shattered the orbit of my eye. Dr Patipa was kind, considerate and had such compassion for my plight. His staff is as nice as he is. The icing on cake, is that no one can even tell I had surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Patipa. It's not often that one meets a specialist , a surgeon with hands and a heart of gold.

I had my upper and lower lids done by Dr.Patipa. I am so unhappy. My lower lids are STILL SAGGING! Dr. Patipa continuously tells me to rub the corners and its been over a year. I wish I never had them done. I have so many problems now and can't even tell I had an eye job. What a waste and my sagging bottem lids make me cry.

He fixed a drooping lower eyelid and also a clogged tear duct that was making my eye tear constantly. He is conscientious, caring and most attentive
