    Stuart Eye Institute
    Had new lenses made and were too strong for my stigmatism so promptly did recheck and altered to better suit my current vision. They were quite accommodating, friendly and service was excellent

    Florida Vision Institute - Port St. Lucie
    Initially I began going here because it was one of the only places my insurance accepted. I had no previous knowledge of them or recommendation. However, eventually I experienced a detached retina and had to have emergency surgery. It was very scary, as the doctor I met with was not the one I had been seeing previously. Dr. Mangal was very professional and explained my condition and options for treatment, surgery was scheduled for the following day. Everything went smoothly and 6 months post op my vision is as good as it was prior to the surgery. I have been to every location and they are always very accommodating especially if you have an emergency. Office staff is always very nice. The wait times are sometimes excessive and that would probably be my only complaint.

    Mittleman Eye
    Every visit to the Middleman office was conducted very professionally.  I found the staff friendly, very efficient and wait times at a minimum.  Dr Middleman explained the options and risks associated with the operation.  I chose the multi-focal lens, the quicker the better and the next week I was in for surgery.  The result was so good I went in two weeks later for the other eye.  It's now a month since the first operation and I'm really enjoying being able to see as good as I could 30-some years ago.  (I had started using reading glasses back in my 40's.  I don't need glasses at all now.)  I have to credit Dr Middleman and his staff for helping get me back to a good life of seeing.

    Guildford, Dr. James H.
    I don't even know if it's possible to write as good a review as this doctor deserves without sounding completely over the top, but here goes. First of all, I'm an RN. I've worked with doctors my entire career. Very rarely do you find a doctor who will interrupt their plans on a weekend to see you for something that isn't a life threatening emergency. I had symptoms that could have indicated a detaching retina late on a Friday afternoon. I didn't have a regular eye doctor because I never had any issues with my eyes other than near-sightedness. I was lucky enough to choose the Florida Vision Institute to call that afternoon. They are able to arrange for me to be seen the next morning (on a Saturday) by Dr. Allen. (I've written a separate review on that experience, which was great, under Florida Vision Institute). Dr. Allen had called Dr. Guildford during my visit on Saturday, and Dr. Guildford agreed to see me Sunday in his Stuart office. ON A SUNDAY! He said he would call me at home to arrange a time. Sure enough, he called me Saturday evening and said he would meet me at his office the next morning.  My husband and I arrived to a totally empty office building (except for the cleaning person). After all, this is a Sunday and doctors don't typically have office hours on Sunday. Dr. Guildford arrived promptly and put us completely at ease immediately. He gave me a complete retinal exam. He was not rushed at all. He explained every step of the way what he was doing and kept reassuring me that what he was seeing looked very good and that I shouldn't worry. He also explained everything that was happening in my eye to my husband and me in such easy to understand terms that there was no question of us not understanding any part of it. He spent at least an hour with us. Again, no rush, no sense of "let's hurry this up, it's a Sunday"; this could have been just a regular day in the office. He explained that what I had was actually a common age-related condition called Posterior Vitreous Detachment, something that happens to almost everyone when they get past 60. There is a risk (a small one) of having the retina tear while this is happening, but that hadn't happened in my case. He explained every step of the process and what to expect and the timeline it takes for the process to complete. He also picked up a small "freckle" on the retina in my left eye that none of my previous eye exams had ever picked up, or at least had never been mentioned. While explaining that this is nothing to lose sleep over and is very common, he did take a photograph of it and said he will check it once a year for changes. (The risk, though small, is the risk of every freckle or mole--melanoma). He stressed strongly that this is very rare--no more common than a freckle on my arm turning into cancer, but still, it's good to know he noticed it since it was very subtle.  This is a good reason why you should start seeing a real eye doctor, not an optometrist, when you get older, even if you've never had any issues. Consider it preventative screening. He told me to call the office on Monday and schedule a follow-up for the following Friday, (which was yesterday). On the follow-up I got another very detailed exam, and I got to meet the office staff and assistants who were all as wonderful as he was. I commented that it must be a great place to work and the staff said yes, it was great to work for Dr. Guildord since he is such a caring doctor and a great boss. They also said my case was far from the first time he had come in on a weekend to see someone. He has offices in Jupiter, Stuart and PSL. He has set days in each one. I highly recommend him!

    Florida Vision Institute - Stuart
    As so often happens, my emergency occurred late on a Friday afternoon! I had a sudden episode of flashing in my side vision, and an avalanche of floaters occur within a fifteen minute time period. I've never had any issue with my eyes other than near-sightedness. Fearing a detaching retina (I'm a nurse and know the symptoms) I called the Florida Vision Institute. This was at 4:30 PM.  I had never been there before. The lady who answered listened to my symptoms, and within ten minutes had contacted Dr. Allen, who agreed to see me Saturday morning. (How often does THAT happen?) On Saturday morning he did see me and gave me a very comprehensive exam, He didn't see a detachment or a tear, but to make sure he wasn't missing anything, and, I think, to reassure me, he got on his cell phone and called Dr. Guildford, a retina specialist. He asked if Dr. Guildford could see me emergently. (I'll be writing a review on the excellent experience with Dr. Guildford after this one). He was extremely reassuring and explained what he thought was happening in great detail. His staff was wonderful too. I was so grateful that they had arranged for me to be seen before Monday! This will be my regular eye care provider from now on, HIGHLY recommended!

    Alexander Katz MD
    I visited the Port St Lucie office which is immaculate and very inviting. I never waited more than 5 minutes to be seen and everyone on the staff was very personable, professional and efficient. Dr. Katz explained  the surgery and lens options and patiently answered all of my questions. The surgery was painless and the results excellent.  And, by the way, the surgery center was also extremely well-run.

    Siegal, Dr. Jeffrey E.
    A highly capable technician had me read the eye chart and then dilated my eyes. She checked my eyes one way, then, after becoming fully dilated, Dr. Siegal examined my eyes again. Dr. Siegal went over the results of the exam, as well as a visual field test which I had completed a week earlier. Dr. Siegal is very thorough and always lets me know what to do or not to do to maintain eye health.

    Katz, Dr. Adam
    He is great and does a really good job. My husband is satisfied with the treatment from him and his office staff. He is a wonderful doctor and we will give him all A's because he specializes in the eye condition that he has. My husband trust the treatments and advice that Dr. Katz provides for him. Very professional and kind and he will continue to use him in the future.
