Dr. Gailitis and his staff are amazing! I recently had cataract surgery and I am so amazed at how clear and bright my vision has become. Such professional and caring staff! I have been a patient for 30 plus years and would not go anywhere else!!
in Coconut Creek, FL |
Dr. Gailitis was amazing as was his staff! He performed laser cataract surgery on both eyes. I was shocked when at the next day I could read the eye chart at 20/25 and 20/20! The surgery was practically painless and recovery was easy. I cannot recommend Dr. Gailitis highly enough. And his staff is the best!!!
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
At 20 years old and legally blind all I ever wanted was to get LASIK. After a consultation I was set. The nicest, warm and most comforting staff you will ever meet! Dr. G was speedy, respectful, and did a FABULOUS job! I trust this office extremely and would highly recommend them!! Thank you all!! :)
in Fort Lauderdale, FL |
I just had my lasik by Dr. Gailitis and his assistants yesterday. They did an amazing job. Furthermore, people in here are extremely friendly. I can see 15/20 on first day which is considered as excellent. Highly recommend !!!!!!!!!!!!
in Coconut Creek, FL |
My family and I have been a patient for many years. From the moment you walk in you can tell that Dr. Gailitis and his staff operate with the highest standards of care. Every appointment is run like a well-oiled machine and the entire staff communicates. Their confidence allows you to trust every decision made. Less than 24 hours after surgery I saw 20/15. The actual LASIK procedure was a breeze and the staff was so accommodating and comforting.
in Fort Lauderdale, FL |
Dr. Gailitis and his entire staff were very professional and very friendly. They were thorough in addressing any questions or concerns that I had and were happy to go through the exact details of the procedure. The procedure itself was easy, and while it is difficult to allow someone you don't know that well to operate on your eyes, you knew they knew exactly what the were doing and felt you were in good hands. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gailitis to anyone thinking about getting LASIK!
in CoconutCreek, FL |
Dr. Gailitis is fantastic. His cateract/lasik surgery to both my eyes has enabled me to see with a clarity I have never had. It has opened up a whole new world!
in Coral Springs, fl. |
Will recommend to all friends who need this surgery. He and his staff were great. They made the prep and the procedure easy and painless. They provided all the needed information and answered all questions easing any fears we had prior. The surgical center they used was very efficient and run by confident and friendly nurses, staff and doctors. Thanks to all.
in Coconut Creek, FL |
I definitely recommend Dr. Gailitis to my friends, my other family members are already planning to have surgery with him! The service was excellent since they were all so accommodating and incredibly professional. Dr. Gailitis answered all my concerns, reassured me during the surgery, he's a wonderful doctor. He and his staff worked with me extra carefully to make sure everything worked smoothly. I'm very satisfied with my service and I'm very happy with my vision!

Professional friendly care. Surgical experience was superior. .Office staff courteous, friendly, well trained and professional.
in Coconut Creek, FL |
DR. GAILITIS IS AN EXCEPTIONAL HEALTHCARE PROVIDER. HE WAS CAREFUL TO MAKE ME AWARE OFF ALL OF THE STEPS TAKEN DURING THE LASIK PROCEDURE. THIS HELPED ME TO REMAIN CALM DURING A STRESSFUL OPERATION. I WAS ALSO CALLED A FEW HOURS AFTER TO PROCEDURE TO SEE HOW I WAS DOING WHICH MEANT A GREAT DEAL TO ME. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
in POMPANO BEACH |
DR G WAS EXCELLENT EXPLAINED THE PROCEDURE IN DETAIL AS WELL AS SPENDING SUFFICIENT TIME WITH ME. NICE PERSONALITY
in Pompano Beach, FL |
I never did get to see the Doctor.I was told to prepare to be there at least 3 hours.Waited 40 minutes and then asked if I needed to reschedule because I have children with a sitter. Long story short office staff and clinical staff can make or break an office no matter how wonderful the doctor is. Had I stayed for my appointment after arriving at 140pm as instructed I would be there till 530pm with his rude and preoccupied staff.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
I love this Doctor! He always takes his time, explains what he is doing and answers all my questions. Staff is friendly and the office is beautiful!
in Coral Springs |
Caring, compassionate surgeon who offers alternatives to treatment. Friendly staff and beautiful office.
