What Patients Have to Say About Dr. Hasan
Dr. Hasan is a caring professional. He is understanding, patient and provides answers to all questions. He provides sufficient technical and non-technical information to assist his patients in their own care. My cataract surgery was well organized from his office staff, cataract consultant, and the Southpoint Surgery Center staff. My new multifocal lenses are quite incredible, from the smallest print to long distance. Thank you for providing an overall excellent experience.
Dr. Hasan is the best!! He is very professional and really cares about his patients. He takes time to answer all your questions. I highly recommend Florida Eye Specialists and especially Dr. Hasan. I am thrilled with the entire experience of my recent cataract surgery! Thank you, Dr. Hasan!
All of the staff was extremely cordial and helpful in explaining all our questions. Could not recommend a better doctor than Dr. Hasan.
