Dr. Shetty is very personable, caring and professional. He is a great diagnostician. I couldn't be more satisfied and am thrilled that he is now in Fernandina Beach.

Dr Kostick fixed my eyes with surgery in 2014. I had terrible uneven eyes because of Graves and Thyroid Eye disease. No one could figure out how he did it. I am so happy with results and will continue to see him and he will be the only doctor I allow to work on my eyes.

Leah Kammerdiener, M.D, was very thorough and explained what was going in with my eye. Her team was the best at what they do at the FL eye institute. They fit me in at the last minute to diagnose and recommended an additional visit to Mr. Lott, who performed laser treatment to repair a retinal tear. Recovering, and will be going for a follow-up. Yes, should you have eye issues, Leah is the one to see.

Dr. Riordan answers all my questions and goes over protocol instructions as many times as I need her to. I appreciate that she never seems rushed. I gave her five stars.

He did a great job of helping my 94 year old mother in-law that has macular degeneration. The office staff was super as she is wheel chair bound. She will continue to see him for treatments

Dr. Lott not only gave me a very thorough eye exam for my Macular Degeneration he educated me on when to take supplement for best results and diet. His up to date knowledge of treatments on the horizon gave me great hope. Thankful I discovered Dr. Lott for my care.

Dr Lott is my MD Retina eye specialist. I trust him completely, he is warm welcoming yet gentle and confident. I trust him to stick a needle in my eye. I would recommend him to serve my mother or my wife, if needed.

If you had 10 stars or even 100 stars, that is how awesome I think Dr. Freidl is. I feel so blessed to have found her after some terrible experiences at other eye Doctor's. She has the best attitude, and is kind, and caring and definitely choose the right profession. The world needs more Doctor's just like Dr. Freidl. She definitely changed my life! Thank you today and everyday.

Best injector in Jax, truly she is far ahead of the typical look. Instead, every treatment brings out your personal best.

Naudia P.

Had a great experience at this appointment. Dr. Patel and his team saw me the same day as my reported concern/eye discomfort. I felt like everyone listened to my symptoms. After I followed his recommendation to stop the antibiotic drop a couple days early to alleviate eye dryness and to add a hypertonic saline drop, I felt so much better. I’m very grateful.

Rachel K.

Great experience. The new offices in Fernandina are great and staff spectacular!

Lovely new office, great and helpful staff and I LOVE my new eye doctor! I’m telling everyone!

Sandra S.

Dr. Kammerdiener is an amazing surgeon! She did an excellent job on both of my eyes, but I most appreciate her extra effort and referral on my right eye that had 2 retinal detachments in 2003 and a buckle around the right eyeball. She worked through every complication and gave me two 20/20 eyes for distance vision! Thank you for your expertise and your concern in doing an excellent job! I would highly recommend Dr. Kammerdiener!

Kathryn S.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Hasan. I found him to be very knowledgeable and professional. He fully explained everything to me in a way that I understood. He was very nice and I am thankful to have him as my eye care doctor.

Margaret J.

Dr. Hasan answered all my questions about cataract surgery options and eye health in general. Both surgeries went smoothly and I can see almost perfectly now without glasses for the first time in 25 years!

Lisa R.

Staff was great!! Dr Kostick was terrific and took care of my difficult condition. Highly recommend!!

Donna K.

First time meeting Dr G as his staff calls him, but Dr. Gayasaddin gave me a relief of new beginning after meeting him on my first visit. I felt like he lift a ton of weight off my shoulder. I wanted a 2nd opinion and he showed me a new light without seeing my history from my previous eye doctors. Dr G made me feel comfortable.


I went to Ana Greenberger at Skincare Specialists in Jacksonville, FL after my daughter went there for lip filler & had spectacular results. Was very impressed so I set up my own appointment & she did not disappoint. She took her time with me going over my options & even spelled out a couple of reasons why I might want to put off getting the lip filler done that particular day - something that very few people in her position would likely do. She made sure I was completely numb before she started & made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. She took her time & spent over an hour with me between Botox and filler injections. She was very personable & extremely informative & the results were amazing as I expected they would be. I will definitely be going back here next time I need any type of cosmetic facial work done.
