Please tell us about your experience with Dr. Kumar and our staff. We appreciate your trust and confidence in us.
This was my first time and I was very impressed. The staff was very polite, very helpful, and also very knowledgable of what was being done to me. The atmosphere was very nice and very welcoming. I was very nervous but they made me feel at ease with the procedure being done.
Staff was very pleasant and informative. I felt very comfortable. Dr. Kumar was also very informative and pleasant. Experience more comfortable than expected.
Totally impressed with the efficiency of the entire staff and operation. Runs like a well oiled machine. Highly recommend!
Everyone was courteous and respectful. They all listened to my concerns, especially Dr. Kumar. She knew exactly what it was after only 2 easy tests and dilation of my eyes! Wonderful experience overall!
I would like to thank all staff at the Florida Retina Institute for making me feel right at home. Didn’t have to wait long at all for my appointment.
The whole visit was pleasant and the staff took away any scary feelings I had. The doctor and staff were excellent.
