Orlando, FL |
I went in with high expectations based on the reviews here, and after 1 bad experience thought maybe it was just a bad day, but after multiple bad experiences I'm not sure how she gets such high ratings. First, when I booked my appt I stated I needed a standard eye exam and new glasses & contacts Rx. She didn't give me either Rx and when I asked said I'd have to come back. Came back a 2nd time, got a glasses rx but said I'd need to come back AGAIN for contacts. Just one of many bad experiences

I needed a emergency visit and Dr Choudhri's office were the only ones to fit me in immediately. It turned out that had I not received medical attention the problem would of cost me the sight in that eye. Dr Choudhri was very professional and explained my problem. She preformed the procedures in the office and gave me a to do plan. Angelika was the office person who I spoke to first and what an amazing young lady. I highly recommend Dr Choudhri and ask for Angelika. You will be glad you did 5*

I would not trust my eyes with anyone else. Dr. Choudhri is the absolute best! What this physician does for her patients is amazing! Fantastic office staff too. Your eyes are in the best hands with Dr. C.

I found Dr Choudhri very thorough and courteous and she explained the procedure fully. On the day of the surgery I checked into the surgery center and the people were very nice and after 10 minutes in surgery I woke up and there was no pain and i knew right away that my sight had improved. I cannot wait to get her to fix my other eye. If you are considering this do not hesitate to see Dr Choughri.

I recently had cataract surgery, it was a challenging operation since this was an exfoliating cataract. Dr. Choudhri is a very skillful surgeon. The operation was successful and there wasn't any complications. She is very approachable and friendly and she runs a most efficient office. Her nursing staff is very efficient and warm. I highly recommend her!!!

Dr. Saira Choudhri conducted my cataract surgery 2 weeks ago. I am very satisfied with the results of the operation. I would also like to thanks the doctor an her staff for all of the attention and care that they provided me. The operation was conducted in the Poinciana Medical Center, who's staff was very professional and helpful with both my self and my wife through the process.
Kissimmee, FL |
told me twice that my cataracts were ripe. Said that I had dry eyes that needed to be addressed first. Gave me a script for Restaisis. Works well, but cost $1500. I paid $108. This put me in the donut hole and now I pay $100 more for my meds. Then she told me that my vision was too good for cataract surgery. My vision was checked every time that I had an appointment, so it was not a surprise.
in Kissimmee, FL |
I had very difficult cataract surgery. The cataract was hard and I have small pupils. Originally I was told it may take 2 or 3 operations and I should not expect good vision. It turns out I only needed one operation and my eyesight is now 20/20. I'm very excited about my results and I highly recommend Dr. Choudhri. I also want to add that her staff was amazing and very professional. This was a wonderful experience.
in Orlando, FL |
Thorough and spent time listening and explaining the procedure she was going to do. I felt very confident in her ability to do the job right.
in Poinciana FL |
The surgical experience was very pleasant. Didn't feel a thing during the procedure and post- op. is going well. Waiting time was a bit long but fantastic job!
in Saint Cloud, FL |
Very professional and great with her patients. Explained in detail of my care. Will definitely recommend to my family and friends.
in Poinciana, FL |
My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Choudhri for about 7 years. WE have been very pleased with her care of our eye issues during this time. I have just finished cataract surgery by her on both my eyes and extremely pleased with the outcome.
in Kissimmee, FL |
I am truly grateful for what she did for me. I was blind and now I can see, well at least from one eye so far. The doctors and nurses were great in explaining the process to my full understanding. Afterwards, the doctor explained how the surgery went and the after treatment to properly heal. I believe their team helps patients not only in restoring their vision, but giving them their life back. I highly recommend Eye Care Specialists of Florida.
in Fl |
Today was my first visit and was happy too say it was very good. She made me comfortable and explained as she checked my eyes. I hope to be a long time patient.
in Clermont, Florida |
Me and my Wife had bilateral Cataract Surgeries and Laser Surgeries with excellent results, no complications and she restored normal 20/20 vision! Her office staff in Eye Care Specialists in Florida and the staff of Poinciana Medical Center have excellent Customer service and are the best in the world! We will recommend this place without hesitation

Dr. Choudhri is knowledgeable and competent in her field. She explained my condition in an efficient manner. She is conscientious and I like that. Her office staff is friendly and efficient.
in Kissimmee, FL |
Office staff was friendly. Doctor was the worst doctor ever. Though she seemed knowledgeable, she did not like to be challenged. She said that I had eye allergies & needed steroid drops. When I told her that I did not want to put steroids in my eyes, she pretty much refused to carry on; did not offer an alternative treatment & told me that she could not do give me a rx for glasses. She did not seem interested in my reasoning for no steroid treatment nor care for me as a human being who thinks.
in Kissimmee, Fl |
Dr Choudhri is a friendly and attentive person. She explains the procedure clearly as well as the expectations. The staff she has is amazingly helpful and polite. But most of all, Dr Choudhri is an excellent eye care surgeon!
