  • Last week I had an emergency due to milkweed sap into my eye. The pain was terrible and I lost my vision 95%. Many places told me that I could not go because I didn’t have appointment. He could see me and gave me a treatment to follow. The treatment was successful and in 24 hours I didn’t have the pain and my vision started improving.. Six days after, I am perfect. BUT what makes me give no 5 , but 10 stars to Dr. Patel is his kindness, respect and follow up. He is one of the physicians that is hard to find nowadays that takes time to ask and answer questions, that really cares about tour feelings. I am NOT another patient. I felt a VIP patient. He even called home the day after to see how I was doing. My husband, who was with me during the visit had the sane thoughts as me. Thanks Dr. Patel! It was nice to find you!!!

    20/20 Wow! One eye was 20/20 with clear vision the day after cataract surgery, The second was 20/20 and clear within two days. A big, welcome change! Dr Patel explained lens options. He was patient and encouraging while I made my lens decision. My surgeries were complicated by previous laser procedures, so I am thankful for his surgical expertise.

    Everyone at the Lake Nona office was following CDC guidelines for Covid-19 prevention. I felt safe visiting the office. The check in process is quick and easy.

    The experience was excellent from my very first visit, through the surgeries, and followup visits. Thank you, Dr Patel and staff!

  • Dr. Patel is a wonderful doctor. He is not only professional but is caring and compassionate with his patients. Takes time to explain everything to you. His staff is wonderful as well. I would recommend him to anyone who has problems with eye sight.

    Dr Patel is the best, professional, Ophthalmologist, I've ever been too. He did Cataract surgery on both eyes and Lasik on my right eye.
    All went smooth with no problems
    I've never had any procedures done. before where the Dr calls you the day before to go over any questions you may have. Also called the night of the procedure to see how your doing. I felt so much at ease with his knowledge and expertise, and most of all his caring for his patients.
    Thank you Dr. Patel
