This doctor at Ocala Eye is fantastic! Always takes the time to make sure you understand procedures, etc. Follows up with a phone call to see how you are doing after surgery. His staff is also friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him and his expertise at making a patient feel at ease. Thank you for restoring my vision.

Yesterday, I had an appoint at the 200 office. I have been a patient at Ocala Eye for over fifteen years and have been very satisfied with his care. However, he no longer takes or has the time to explain the condition of my eye. His excellent staff does most of the testing; I personally saw the Dr. five minutes at best.

Dr. Peter J. Polack's response
We are very sorry for your less-than-ideal experience. That was a particularly busy day and we were trying to strike a balance between making sure patients were doing well and not keeping them waiting too long, and the staff will often hurry the doctor a bit if the clinic is falling behind. Please accept our apologies.

I could not be more pleased with the procedures to diagnose and subsequently complete the cornea transplant surgical procedure and follow-up process. The doctor and the support team at Ocala Eye have been exceptional to interact with. The medical expertise and patient treatment has consistently demonstrated their commitment to excellent customer service and achieving great outcomes for their patients. Thank you so much for restoring my vision to a level that allows me to more fully enjoy my life.

I am very pleased with my cataract surgery. He is very knowledgeable & his staff from front desk to recovery were very comforting & proficient . I felt safe under their care. He explains each step of the painless procedure he performs. He also personally called to see how I was doing the night of my procedure! I am very pleased & highly recommend him for any eye problems you have. At 65, I have 20/20 vision & very seldom have to wear "reader" glasses!! Thank you for giving my sight back!
