Patient Testimonials

Florida Eye Specialists stand and smile as a group

I have been coming here for over 20 years. The quality and care is a big part of why I am still here. Professional and personal every time I have an appointment.

Linda D.

Dr. Hasan was very pleasant, warm, and friendly. Keeps you informed on what's going on during the exam and what to expect after the exam is over.

Henry G.

Dr. Kammerdiener diagnosed and quickly treated an infection in my eye which had previously had glaucoma surgery. She was excellent and professional in providing further and immediate consultation with an eye specialist in Naples, Florida. She went out of her way to ensure that every angle was covered for my future care and recovery. Truly an outstanding and caring doctor. Would recommend with the highest grades possible.

William G.

Dr. Riordan addressed my needs and concerns in a most professional and helpful way. I am most appreciative and feel very fortunate to have her as my physician. Thanks, Doc!!

Bill L.

I would highly recommend Dr. Lott and team. I have had huge success with my surgery and recovery. Everyone is so caring and very helpful, the follow-up and information given are awesome. I was well prepared before, during, and after surgery. There are also several office locations to meet every need. Thank you, Dr. Lott and team!!!

Barbara R.

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. 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.

I was pleased to encounter a courteous and professional staff in a comfortable and appropriate physical setting. Short wait time and efficient examination by Dr. Patel, who provided a full and clear explanation of what my condition was and what can be done about it. A very satisfactory and reassuring consulation.

Jose C.

This was my first experience with Dr. Kostick and found him to be extremely competent and professional. My surgery and now recovery is going very well. I have already shared Dr. Kostick's contact information with a friend who is contemplating similar surgery.

Marianne H.

Dr. Hasan is a gifted physician. The practice is extremely well organized and run. All of the physicians in the practice are excellent, truly excellent.

Martin G.

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.

Bill L.

Dr. Freidl is excellent. Everything that she has provided for my eye care has been outstanding. I could not have chosen a better doctor for my eye care.

It’s so amazing to be able to see so clearly without contacts or glasses! Dr. Chokshi is absolutely wonderful. The staff was so warm and welcoming, immediately making me feel at ease! I wish I would have had my LASIK done years ago.

Kirsten C.

Dr. Hasan consistently demonstrates the highest standards of care in ophthalmology, cataract surgery, and comprehensive clinical practice. He is not only up-to-date on the most advanced technology in his specialization, but he is also one of the MOST trusted, caring, and patient-centered compassionate physicians that I have had the privilege to have as one of MANY in my vision and specialized medical care!

Quality operation. Felt very comfortable that I was getting the best in eye care. Recently moved to FL and am very happy that I found this office and Dr Riordon. I observed for several visits before coming to this conclusion. I am particular as came from a city with great healthcare.

Eileen K.

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.

Great office staff. Dr. Shetty is very personable, explains everything and the entire experience was excellent. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.

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!

Love the fact these people have a system and it works. It makes a big difference to me. Visit moves along swiftly and your not left sitting alone in a room forever wondering what’s going on. The doctor and staff were great. Highly recommend.
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.

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!

Dr. Freidl and the staff at Florida Eye Specialists are fantastic. From the time you check in until you leave, you have a feeling that you've been seen by professional, compassionate and friendly people.

Joseph M.

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. Riodan. 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!


I went to my 60th class reunion last week... I was voted least changed and had several classmates, both male and female, tell me how beautiful I looked! Thanks to Dr. Kostick!!

Mary C.

I am so fortunate to have Dr. Freidl as my eye specialist. She is a brilliant doctor, who is personable and takes the time to listen to my concerns. She understands that each patient is unique, and I feel like she has my best interest at heart. She has been a blessing to me.

Carol M.

My experience was exceptional from start to finish. The initial consultation was an easy process and I honestly felt it wasn't about making money, rather my eye health and if I was truly a candidate for LASIK. The procedure was very smooth thanks to the staff that provided clear communication along the way. My subsequent follow visits were very thorough and precise to further support the health of my eyes. I am one year out and life without glasses or contacts is great. I am so glad I had the procedure done and would do it again in hindsight. I would highly recommend the team at Maida Custom Vision.

Glenn S.

Dr. Freidl is an excellent doctor who did both of my eyes for cataract surgery. She is a caring doctor who listens to her patients, takes her time in explaining your options for treatment, and she performed my surgery flawlessly. I am extremely happy to have Dr. Freidl as my surgeon.

John H.

I am very confident trusting my vision care to Dr. Chokshi. He performed my LASIK surgery and removal of my cataracts. He is very professional and demonstrates genuine concern for his patients. Explains procedures thoroughly and answers all my questions. I have recommended Dr. Chokshi to everyone I talk with about my vision. He is a great doctor.

Shirley D.

I think Dr. Hasan is fantastic. I got the best care and result I could hope for! From my first visit to my last, I was pleased with the service. Not only is he an amazing surgeon, but he is thoroughly likable and relates well with his patients. I went into my cataract surgery with a great deal of confidence that I was in good hands. I highly recommend him to others.
