Dr. Mahootchi has totally transformed my life! Nothing could be done to correct my severe astigmatism other than glasses. Dr. Mahootchi's skills allowed him to implant a new type of toric lens in each eye which is a truly amazing procedure! No longer do I even need glasses! I totally owe this new-found sight to Dr. Mahootchi. Also his entire staff is just as amazing as he is! Each one is so efficient, helpful, and knowlegeable. I highly recommend the Eye Clinic of Florida and the Same Day Surgery Center of Zephyrhills, FL.

Dr. Mahootchi is without a doubt the best eye doctor I have ever been to. He is always pleasant, professional and has a great bed-side manner. Recently, Dr. Mahootchi removed the cataract in my left eye and implanted a reading lens. A few weeks later, he removed the cataract in my right eye and implanted a distance lens. I felt in very good hands during both procedures. I've had no pain or discomfort with either and recovery has been seemless. The crispness of my vision is remarkable! I highly recommend Dr. Mahootchi for anyone's eye care. The staff in the clinic and surgery center are all to be commended. Everyone is pleasant, proficient and always greets you with a smile.

Having been severely myopic, all of my long live, the success of my cataract surgery was more than a pleasant surprise. It was awe inspiring! I have never been able to see, like I can now, until now. Since I have an astigmatism in my right eye, we decided to upgrade to a Symphony lens. (I'm told that Dr. Mahootchi charges ½ the upgrade price of other surgeons in the area. Win-win.) I couldn't be happier with the surgery. He has an incredible team, which I'm sure he appreciates, especially since all his patients benefit from all of it. I would, gladly and whole-heartedly, recommend Dr. Mahootchi, his team, and his facility to anyone.

I would highly recommend Dr. Ahad Mahootchi and "The Eye Clinic of Florida" to anyone. After having a cataract removed from my right eye 3 years ago, I had a fall and lost use of my legs. (My surgery had been performed at another facility.) Consequently, we had to use a lift to move me from my wheelchair to a bed. The facility did not have a lift to transfer me to the operating table to have surgery performed on my left eye cataract. They refused to let us bring our lift into their facility. This left me dealing with extreme double-vision for the last 3 years. I researched several other facilities to get the surgery performed, to no avail. I finally contacted "The Eye Clinic of Florida" in Zephyrhills. We went in person, to talk to them about making an appointment, and explain the extent of the difficulty in transferring me. From the moment that we entered the front door, we were greeting by nothing but smiles. They proceeded, in the next appointment, to perform all of my testing without requiring me to leave my wheelchair. Everyone was very kind, patient, and compassionate. When Dr. Mahootchi came to discuss my surgery, he was very thorough in explaining my options and very patient in answering all of our questions. He made us feel very relaxed and calmed all of my fears of the situation. On the day of the surgery, my husband used our lift to place me on and off the operating table for my surgery to be performed. All of the staff are very pleasant and efficient. I commend every one of them. John, the Anesthesiologist, was fantastic. He was very kind, gentle and professional as he explained every step as he performed it. The surgery was successful and comfortable. It is so fantastic to no longer have to deal with the double-vision, and be able to see. On the follow-up visit the next day, we were greeted with the same friendly professionalism. All-in-all, I cannot say enough about Dr. Mahootchi and his staff. I give them the highest recommendation possible.

2nd Opinion My 1st cataract surgery, on my right eye, was performed 4 years ago by a well known cataract surgeon in Tarpon Springs, Fl and did not go so well (meaning I continue to have vision problems and headaches). At a recent appointment I was told that I now needed my left eye's cataract lens replaced. I was told this second surgery was necessary and urgent and that waiting as little as 3 months could result in complications! This really scared me and given the first outcome I thought I should get another opinion which I did. After reading reviews on all cataract surgeons in the area I decided to visit the Eye Clinic of Florida in Zephyrhills, Florida for a second opinion. Dr Ahad Mahootchi and his entire staff treated me with the utmost respect and professionalism during my consultation. He addressed all my fears regarding the potential issues I was worried about. After completing numerous tests, Dr Ahad Mahootchi, the actual cataract surgeon spent about 1 hour studying the results and rechecking both my eyes. He explained in detail what the problem was with my 1st surgery and based on his years of experience correcting issues from other surgeons, he felt confident that he could not only resolve the issue with my left eye, but he could also resolve the issue from my 1st surgery! I explained due to my schedule that it would be better for me to wait 9 months to have the surgery completed and he assured me that this would not be a problem and explained to me to have the surgery completed when it was convenient for me. I was pleasantly surprised, no pressure to have the surgery now and I appreciated the time Dr Ahad Mahootchi spent with me personally evaluating my eyes. I now understand the confidence the staff has in Dr Ahad Mahootchi, which is very admirable and well deserved. I am now looking forward to having Dr Ahad Mahootchi take care of my surgery when my schedule allows.

I am John Peele from Ridge Mannor. I went to him in 2007 and i had slight cataracts he told me to wait untill they progress more. Here in 2016 I was watching TV and i could not see well enough to see any of the words on the screen. I went back to Dr. Mahootchi and he said that my eyes where ready to preform the surgery, and in March of this year he preformed the surgery on my eyes and also implanted crystalens. I have been wearing glasses since i was 8 years old and at this time i no longer have to wear glasses. I am very pleased at the way my eyes have turned out and Dr. Mahootchi has been very honest with me. Is has been worth the wait for the cateract surgery. I would reccomend Dr. Mahootchi to anyone. He will allways be the Dotcor for my eye needs.

I have worn glasses for more years then I would like to admit. Getting crystalens with my cataract surgery has changed my life! Not needing my glasses for road signs, computer or menus makes me feel young again.

My daughter recently was seen by the doctor working under Dr. Mahootchi and she was excellent. She was very thorough and patient with her my daughter has special needs. Unfortunately Dr. Mahootchi breezed in at the end and at first he suggested that my daughter did not need to be seen again for 5 years. Mind you her ocular pressures are 23 and 25 . The doctor that performed the eye exam reinterated concerning the increased eye pressures and in the end he prescribed ophthalmic drops. My daughter and I we're very impressed by the up and coming doctor who spoke up.
