Please tell us about your experience with Dr. Dunn and our staff. We appreciate your trust and confidence in us.     

Dr. Dunn demonstrated exceptional expertise and professionalism. It was clear that I am in secure hands. And this is both comforting and assuring regarding current or future retinal medical conditions.

Appreciate prompt response to problem. Everyone extremely professional.

I was treated with courtesy and professionalism from start to end of appointment.

Wish all offices were this efficient and caring. Thank you.

I was originally sent to the other retina Dr. I was told by their office my visits would be covered by FL Health Care. Received a $3,000 bill after the second visit! Told not covered. Also, was never told about any options for treatment. Just did the most expensive shot. Your office was so different and I am so pleased that options were offered to me. Dr. and staff were so friendly and helpful. Very pleased. Hopefully, the visits of the other Dr. will be covered by Florida Health Care as we were told the day of my first visit that they would be!

A very pleasantly efficient office!
