Dr. Shmunes and the entire team at Atlantic Eye Institute, Jacksonville, FL are a highly competent caring and compassionate group of doctors. I had a serious eye infection resulting in a cornea transplant. Dr. Shmunes (who hadn't ever treated me at the time stepped in and managed my entire case with multiple doctors. He has done an outstanding job and as a result, I trust him implicitly. His competency, diligence and attention to detail are second to none. At at the same time, his warm, friendly style and focus on customer service is the best I've seen in health care. Also, the entire staff at Atlantic Eye Institute are courteous and well trained in patient service. If you need eye care in the Jacksonville, FL area, I highly recommend Dr. Shmunes and the other doctors (Drs. Duss, Simmons and Lancaster) at Atlantic Eye Institute as I've now seen them all. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or comments about this my review.

Dr. Gilbert not only is the best cataract surgeon in town, he is also the best diagnostician. After my son's optometrist ignored his drooping, bulging eye I insisted that he see Dr. Gilbert. My son was seen almost immediately and a MRI was scheduled for the same day. Dr Gilbert even left his cell phone # with the MRI tech so he could be more quickly informed of the results. A mass was found behind the eye that was successfully removed by another surgeon. All I can say is thank goodness we did not listen to the optometrist who said it was probably nothing to worry about. Our family will forever be grateful for the expertise and care Dr Gilbert gave us. I know you have to wait in his office to see him. I would rather wait for the best care than immediate see someone for mediocre care. Just take something to read or your iPod.
I have been a patient of Dr. Gulani's for 3 years now. When I found him I had been rejected by every other lasik surgeon in Jacksonville due to previous RK surgery, but Dr. Gulani gave me hope. He not only performs vision correction surgeries but he teaches them all over the world and is one of few who can correct previous surgeries! I now have better than 20/20 vision and after 3 years I still see better than I ever have before. It still amazes me when I wake up and can see my alarm clock without reaching for glasses or when I can see my little girl's smile at 5 am when she jumps in my bed. I recommend Dr. Gulani to everyone I see and I urge you to go see him if you have any vision problems or know someone who does. His website is http://www.gulani.com/LASIK_Stories
This office is one of a kind. They are concerned for the patient and makes sure the patient is informed and understands everything before any decisions are made concerning surgery. The atitude of the doctor is so positive it makes that decision simple for the patient who is not only concered about their loss of eyesight but allows them to make intelligent decisions. This has been a wonderful experience for not only my husband but also for my mother, who had eye surgery 2 years ago by Dr. Niccolitz. I would recommend Dr. Niccolitz and his top notch staff to anyone contemplating any eye related surgery. Millie Small
I went for an eye exam at Dr. Nicolitz's office, on a recommendation from my mother who had plastic surgery with Dr, Nicolitz, and was very pleased from the time I stepped off the elevator. The front office personnell was very efficient and I was called back within 10 minutes. I have had many eye exams and have never had a more thorough exam in my life from the technicians down to the doctor!!! Dr. Nicolitz is the best and he should be very proud of his office staff!!! I will be back! Richard O.
Dr. Lancaster is outstanding in terms of patient care. I moved down to Jacksonville about 5 years ago and found he and Atlantic Eye Institute. Competent, caring, willing to take the time to explain what is needed for your eyes. Recently I had a very bad eye infection and he was amazing! Came in on the weekend, checked in on me even as I had to have a cornea transplant from another doctor. I am glad to recommend him anytime. Feel free to contact me re: this referral by responding.
I'm a busy mom. I set my appointment for 10 and I was seen at 10!(rare nowadays) I appreciate that. The Dr. wasn't irritated by my sleepy, fussy baby. She allowed me to pause and care for her. The office manager helped me find frames and helped me understand my insurance coverage options.That information allowed me to get even more for my money! :) Im switching my husband over to this office from a "well known" company which I shall not name. *giggles*
I recently discovered a vision center that have the widest frame selections. One of the staff were even willing to order frames that was in the catalog and told me that I wasn't obligated to purchase until I am absolutely satisified. Of the 4 pairs she ordered I purchased 2. Although I didn't get my exam at that office, I heard great things about doctors from other patients who were in there. I will defintely return next year and get my exam there.
Currently under care at this facility. I am finding the staff friendly, professional and courteous. I am comfortable with Dr. Samy's expertise and his communications with me as his patient. My only reservation is his ready availability but I assume the volume of his patients accounts for that as he is in demand in his neuro-opthamology field.
This place is in a great location. It is right around the corner from the new River City Market place. My mom and I got lunch before my eye exam. They are open everyday but Sundays. Everybody was super friendly. I came in to bought glasses and left more educated about glasses and my prescription. I plan to bring my best friend there as well.
