I have seen Dr. Monnett for several years. He has done eyelid surgery and cataract surgeries and has always been very professional and courteous. His skills are excellent. I would and have recommended him to other friends and family.

I have a great deal of trust in Dr. Monnett's knowledge base and his explanations are very thorough. I do get a sense he is so busy and ready to move on to the next patient but I always have my questions answered. The wait is a bit much long for my mother who has Alzheimer's, but the staff is all very accomodating and understanding

Impatient,, very rude, my opinion he's a jerk
in Sebastian, FL |
Have been a patient of Dr. Monnett for many years. He is very experienced, friendly, and explains everything in layman's terms. I have been wearing glasses since 8th grade. This past year I had cataract surgery with astigmatism correction in both eyes. My vision is now 20/20 in one eye and 20/25 in the other. I no longer need glasses, not even for reading! Dr. Monnet, besides being a great person, is a perfectionist.
in Sebastian, FL |
Dr. Monnett is more concerned about getting paid and the number of procedures he can perform in one day than he is of the well being of his patients. Take my advice, a patient of the Monnett Center for over 4 years, go elsewhere!!
in Sebastian, FL |
He is a talented, compassionate, and runs an efficient office. When I had the ocular implants done, they were all promised. When you are putting your precious eyes in the hands of a practice, a clean, competent, efficient, friendly, but most of all skillful, one has to take time to find the best you can. Sincerely, Trent Dattoli
