Your extra care, patience and understanding is greatly appreciated! Taking an integrative approach with medicine is a gift. Healing encompasses more than scientific support; it begins with the mind and spirit. I do believe your persona supports that aspect. Overall you display consideration for the individual's concerns. Your ability to listen and respond effectively calms the spirit. I have learned over the years it takes more than being an expert to be exceptional. It is all about relationships. I thank you and your staff for such wonderful care!

Caryl - A patient of Dr. Neel Desai

Thanks for your precious gift you have given me. The gift of sight. You are a very special DR giving your patients love and kindness and topping it off with beautiful clear vision. Doc, you have a very warm and comforting spirit and it makes us patients feel extremely comforting, knowing that we are in safe hands and all will be well. Also the best bedside manner and people skills.Thanks again for my precious gift of sight. May God continue to bless & keep you as you care for others.

Cynthia - A patient of Dr. Robert Weinstock

Friendly, welcoming, and extremely helpful staff. A large and busy atmosphere BUT I never once felt not listened to. They made me feel like I was valued and ALL my concerns were addressed. Dr. Weinstock was relaxed while speaking with my husband and me and we never felt rushed. He immediately gained our trust. Same trust continued during both my eye cataract surgeries and follow-up. Without any hesitation I would recommend Robert Weinstock MD.

Lorraine – A patient of Dr. Robert Weinstock

I have been a patient of Dr. Swartz for 10 years and have the highest regard for him. Aside from being affable and having good quick wit, he has taken excellent care of me. If I have to deal with glaucoma, I feel fortunate to have Dr. Swartz in my corner. The staff.... beyond excellent. Jill, Becca, and everyone, could not be kinder and more efficient. Thank you all.

Linda – A patient of Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz

Very knowledgeable retina specialist, with lots of experience due to the high volume of patients at the Eye Institute of West Florida. Comprehensive and fully staffed testing facilities. Dr Kirsch can explain things at a simple summary level, or delve into the details for scientific minded people.
