About Dr Patel and the Florida Retina Center

About Dr Saurabh Patel and the Florida Retina Center

Dr Patel is a kind, caring man who understands that each person entering an eye doctors office is going to have fears and concerns. He goes out of his way to make each patient (you) as comfortable as possible, listens to your concerns and helps address your fears. Dr Patel understands you don't want to feel rushed, but that instead the person who is advising you on problems with your vision actually cares about you and your well being.

Dr. Patel would like each of you to know that getting a second opinion is very important. Even some doctors with excellent credentials and records may only offer you limited options based on their comfort zone. Dr. Patel has expertise and experience in even the most complex retinal surgical procedures, and is able to offer you a greater variety of retina eye health care options. Dr. Patel also understands that "vision" is not simply what a person sees on an eye chart in the office. He is sensitive to preventative measures, such as prophylactic treatments in patients who have suffered a retinal detachment in one eye.

Finally, Dr. Patel wants you to know that he will always offer the options that are most likely to give you improved vision. He will also be the first to educate you when there is no "best" option and when several options have equal benefit.
