Patient Reviews (2)
in Pensacola, FL |
He is a very kind, caring doctor. To find a doctor that genuinely cares for patients is rare. I appreciate how he wasn't so eager to leave the door but listened and answered our cares/concerns we had. I highly recommend him.
in Gulf Breeze, FL |
He was over an hour late to a first appointment. He was unfriendly to the point of rude and he went too quickly explaining my eye problem. Then he did not give me a recommendation on whether I should have the surgery. I had to ask his tech. He did not return my call after three attempts on three different days. Another physician needed his input on something. So I called him three different times on three different days. He refused to return the call.

Dr. Tarantola says...

Ryan Tarantola, M.D. currently serves patients in Pensacola, Crestview, and Fort Walton Beach in Florida. He also serves in Fairhope, Atmore and Foley, in Alabama.  Saving sight and treating patients with vitreoretinal disease has been a long-time passion for Dr. Tarantola.

He aspires to treat each patient in the same manner that he would a member of his own family, and he is committed to providing the highest quality care possible. Dr. Tarantola places a high priority on patient education and spends the necessary time to ensure that each patient understands his or her condition and treatment plan.
