Please tell us about your experience with Dr. Cunningham and our staff. We appreciate your trust and confidence in us.
What a wonderful Doctor. I feel hopeful regarding my vision. Something I haven't felt in over a year. Many thanks to Dr. Cunningham and the staff.
Best office I have been to (and I have been to many). These other practices need to take note. Quick, efficient, and most importantly, attentive. The new patient paperwork that you mail out, inclusive of personal driving directions, really sets the bar. Thank you.
I was disappointed with my care at another practice. I decided to contact the Florida Retina Institute. I had severe loss of vision in my left eye and wanted to consult a retinal expert. Your office arranged (promptly) an appointment with Dr. Cunningham. Dr. Cunningham did a thorough exam and urged me to meet with Dr. Jerry Shuster of Eye Physicians to explore future care of vision in my right eye and a possible explanation to why I had lost vision in the left eye - possible glaucoma.
The office is like a well oiled machine. Everyone was clean and very nice.
This is a very efficient and well-run office and I got the feeling that the staff must like working there. The timing was so efficient and people were really kind and helpful. They explained something well that was very new to me.
I was so impressed with the friendly and professional staff at this office. Dr. Cunningham was also personable and took the time to answer all my questions. Thanks so much.
