Patient Testimonials

Florida Eye Specialists stand and smile as a group

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!

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.

Dr. Shetty has a very good listening ear, which is important for patients. The office is very clean and the staff has done a great job keeping everything sanitized between patients.

Vivian E.

Dr. Patel has been great! He’s friendly, thorough, knowledgeable, and a great surgeon. I saw him for both a cornea abrasion and cataracts. Having a history of eye issues at a fairly young age, I was nervous to have yet another procedure done. I’m very happy with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Patel and I will return to his office for any future cornea issues.

Stephanie E.

A very satisfactory and reassuring consulation.

Dr. Freidl is more than just a competent and skilled doctor. She is a genuine, caring, and concerned human being who shows genuine empathy for her patients. I feel lucky to have found her and over many years she has been consistently the best. I feel I owe her my current vision. With only one eye, this is critical to have excellent care and she provides it with empathy. She deserves 10 stars at least.

Kirsten C.

Dr. Hasan consistently demonstrates the highest standards of care in ophthalmology, cataract surgery, and comprehensive clinical practice.

Office staff were very knowledgeable and courteous. Took great care of us, even though we arrived rather early for our appointment. Highly recommend this practice.

This was only my second visit to Dr. Koike's office. His staff was excellent, friendly and very coordinated while administering all the tests. The doctor and staff all wore masks and maintained social distancing as much as they could. I felt secure while visiting, knowing that special precautions were taken due to the pandemic. I want to thank everyone in this office for putting me at ease. Great practice and I will highly recommend Dr. Koike to my friends.

Patricia F.

Professional, excellent cataract surgery, and most importantly, kind and helpful. Minor discomfort the first day, not even an aspirin needed. Results? I can now see Neil Armstrong's footprints on the lunar surface. I also would like to thank the office medical and administrative staff. I felt very safe, due to their diligence in implementing COVID-19 precautions. If you're thinking of eye surgery of any kind this is the place to go, and Dr. Patel is the surgeon to see.

Dale H.

Dr. Hasan has a very pleasant and professional manner about him. When you are in the office you know that he is busy, but he is never in a rush with you. When he is in the room with you he is completely focused on you. Not all doctors are like that.

Bill H.

Dr. Koike and his staff are second to none! The office is very clean and sterile with every precaution taken to protect both staff and patients. I am greeted with a warm welcome when I come to this facility and look forward to my visit. Hats off to everyone!

Whenever I am asked about my recent surgery I can’t wait to tell people how comfortable I was made to feel and how wonderful everyone was at San Marco.

Fred Y.

Dr. Chokshi and his staff are truly amazing he saved my eyes, I feel like I was reborn when my cataracts were removed and astigmatism corrected, I had to wait for the COVID situation to get the elective surgeries open back but it was a total life change for me after the surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Chokshi, Florida Eye Specialists and his staff, they are very courteous, responsive and never have to wait at the lobby for my checkup visits, they are wonderful. I am thankful for what they do for others.

Maria B.

Dr Freidl and the staff at The Florida Eye Specialists were true professionals! I was greeted and screened before I could enter into the waiting area. To ensure my safety as well as the staff and other customers, I was asked to wait in my vehicle. I was called within minutes and a technician met me in the waiting area and immediately escorted me to an examination room to take photos of my eyes. I then saw Dr Freidl. She completed my annual eye exam and I was back in my vehicle within 30 minutes! I was extremely pleased with the new COVID-19 safety procedures and the high quality service!

Melanie C.

Dr. Lott is thorough, pleasant and has a kind manner. He and his staff are attentive and professional. Mary, in the front office, was very patient and helpful in obtaining my records not yet received from another doctor's office by the time of my appointment, although I had requested them weeks before.

Gretchen C.

I love visiting the office - the entire staff is so friendly and supportive. Dr. Chokshi is amazing and I would recommend him to anyone who has an eye issue. Thank you all for all you do!

Anne E.

A considerable amount of time was taken to explain what my options were and why other options were not available. In the 30 years I’ve had Glaucoma this was the first time a doctor didn’t treat me like a number but rather an individual person and it meant more than I could ever begin to express.

Tanya R.

Dr. Hasan took my concerns seriously and I felt he was as invested as I was in a good outcome. He took time explaining the prognosis as well as the treatment plan. Felt confident in his care.

MaryAnn N.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Riordan. She performed BlephEx on me to clean up my eyelids. She explained everything as she went along. I really like when a doctor gives a running commentary of what is being done and why as he/she is doing it. It makes me feel more comfortable

Rose L.

Dr. Chokshi was marvelous! He was informative and took the time to answer my questions, discuss my concerns and how my vision issues may or may not impact my child and grandchildren. He made me feel like he was sincere and concerned about my vision challenge and fears and set my mind at ease. A very heartfelt thank you to everyone at Florida Eye Specialists; you are ALL awesome!
