Happy Patient Testimonials
Happy Patients Talk About Their Experience with Cataract Surgery and Dr. Mahootchi.
This place is something AWESOME. Before my aunt had cataract surgery she had trouble counting fingers right in front of her. Now she has 20/20 vision. I must admit I was skeptical at first because of just being the type of person who worry a lot about my aunt. But I'm glad we trusted the process.
Years after surgery’s seeing 20/20 the results are outstanding. Now I only visit annually for a health checkup. Thank you Dr. Mahootchi and Team!!
I had a pleasant experience at The Eye Clinic of Florida. It was my first time there, and everything went really well. Dr. Huang and all the assistants were very thorough.
I am new to the area and needed my annual eye exam. After researching several eye clinics and reading the reviews I decided to book an appointment with the eye clinic of Florida. It was a very nice experience and happy I chose them. They are friendly and knowledgeable! I highly recommend them.
I have been going here for two years now, and both times the entire staff, from reception to nurse to doctor, were all so kind! They have a great selection of eyewear, the eye exam was made very comfortable, and again everyone was so nice. I would absolutely recommend this location to others (:
My experience at The Eye Clinic of Florida was outstanding. Dr. Mahootchi and his staff are extremely kind and caring. When I was in the surgical center I saw the staff cleaning the chairs and utensils whenever a patient left the area. Very impressive. I would highly recommend The Eye Clinic of Florida and Dr. Mahootchi to anyone.
Dr. Mahootchi is A #1 in my book, for sure! He has performed a couple procedures and I couldn’t be more happy with the results. The Same Day Surgery Center is very accommodating, as well as, the staff. All of the staff are very caring people, and make sure their patients are taken care! I highly recommend The Eye Clinic of Florida!
