Patient Testimonials

Florida Eye Specialists stand and smile as a group

“Stunned by the Results”

“As a professional golfer and golf broadcast analyst, I needed clear eyesight to do my job effectively, and more importantly, to fully enjoy everyday life. It wasn’t until after my cataract surgery things seemed to get back to normal. What a relief to see things clearly again. Recovery was so painless that I didn’t even need a Tylenol, and I was stunned by the results.”

Mark McCumber, PGA Tour Champion

“Like a Miracle to Me”

“I have been wearing glasses since I was ten years old, and I now no longer require them for distance vision at all. I can see with greater clarity and brightness than I ever remember experiencing. This is like a miracle to me, and I am so grateful to have found Dr. Freidl and Florida Eye Specialists. They are devoted to patient care and well-being, and the results reflect that.”

Susan C.

“Life-Changing Experience”

“The care at Florida Eye Specialists is just exceptional. They're so thorough, with detailed testing and measuring before surgery. They made me feel very at ease. I feel very blessed to have doctors like this available to me. Since surgery, my vision is the best it’s ever been. To wake up in the morning and not have to put my glasses on has been life-changing.”

Dr. Chokshi incredibly resolved my inflammatory dry eye condition in ONE visit when another opthalmologist in town had me spend several thousand dollars for a host of treatments over more than 6 months, which did not work. I am grateful for the referral to Dr.Choksi.

I can’t say enough good stuff about Dr. Kostick. He explained to me things that no other Dr has gone that in-depth with me. I absolutely would highly recommend him. The staff was great also.

Dr. Chokshi successfully removed a pterygium on my eye. The initial visit, surgery, and follow-up post-op appointments were pleasant experiences. Yes, I’m including the surgery! The Mandarin office affords easy access, ample parking close to the door, and a smaller office with hospitable and efficient staff. Now that the eye has healed I am using Dr. Chokshi to remove my cataracts as well. I have full trust and confidence in his skills and staff to give me successful outcomes on these services as well. He comes highly recommended! 🙂

Everyone I have dealt with there has been devoted to patient care and well-being, and the results reflect that.

Loved everyone! Professionalism was spot on. No sugar coating, but explained every little detail and answered every question with care and in a way that was easily understood. As for the level of patient care, was treated like a friend/family. I regard “patient advocacy” very highly when I meet with anyone in the medical field. I must say EVERY PERSON in that office took time, care, and patience in every sense of the way! Would highly recommend them! And…I can see!

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. 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.
