Dr Ahmed with Ocala Eye. Their location is at the intersection of CR466 and Buena Vista near the laurel manor rec Ctr. Ocala Eye is a large practice with numerous specialists. I go to Dr Ahmed and my wife goes to Dr Pollock.

I used to go to Ocala Eye. Their scheduling is awful. I had many long, long waits. Now I go to Mid Florida Eye.

Kimberly Ireland at St Luke's. DW and I both went to Ocala Eye. After we each had bad experiences, switched to St Luke's. She did my cataracts in December and will do DW's next month.

She is the best in my opinion. Her staff is well trained and caring.

I have never waited more than 10 minutes at Ocala Eye. The only exception is the part of the eye exam when your eyes are dilated.

Perhaps they have changed. I left them a couple of years ago. At the time my wAits were extremely long. Docs were nice, but scheduling people really upset me.

I think you are probably correct. They seem to have a real focus on timelines.

You can look all day but you won't find a better place than St Lukes. The staff is fantastic and Dr. Ireland better than that, plus she flies a helicopter.
..Did I say she's might good lookin, too?
