Patient Testimonials

Florida Eye Specialists stand and smile as a group

This was an exceptional experience in receiving a 1st time examination of my eyes by these professionals. It was concise in nature and complete with a first-class explanation of what was determined and/if any further action would be potentially required. Most thankful for their excellent care and treatment.

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.

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!

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.

Dr. Kammerdiener has performed eye surgery (cataract) on both of my eyes. She is very competent and professional in her approach while also having an accommodating and easy way about herself. She knows what she is doing and it shows in her command of the procedures and ability to adjust to unexpected events that arise during the procedure. Highly recommended.

Jim M.

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.
