Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Deppermann "As a glaucoma specialist, I provide customary, detailed evaluation and treatment. I also individualize care. Glaucoma is a preventative form of blindness. In order to achieve this endpoint of retained vision, a given patient's individual disease and life situation must be taken into account. I do not consider a patient just another person on my daily list. I do not rush in and rush out of exam rooms. Our group teaches a person how to correctly instill eye drops. You become part of our team."

in New Port Richey, FL |
After seeing a few doctors, I was recommended to see Dr. Deppermann. He was able to treat me without further surgery to my right eye. He listens to my concerns and answers all questions no matter how long it takes. I think he is great even with the long wait time. The staff at St Lukes in Tarpon Springs is great. Volunteers would hand out free coffee or bottled water and snacks.
