“My dad just had his first visit to Dr. Patel this week. Since he has recently moved into a Brandon Care Facility, I searched out the best Ophthalmologist in the area to treat my dad’s progressive Macular Degeneration. I was impressed with this clinic’s advanced care and state-of-the-art equipment. Dr. Patel and his team was ready for my dad’s appointment with records pulled up on screen from my dad’s previous ophthalmologist. They demonstrated excellent continuity of care for my dad.”Chris H.
“Professionalism to the max these people know exactly what they're doing they do not waste time and they get to the problem. I am so impressed I am a 66 year old male who had a torn retina and everything was taken care of in the same day. I highly recommend these eye professionals to anyone who wants to relax and let these people do their job, they are fantastic in every way I give them 6 gold stars! Thank you Dr. Patel”John C.
