“I had an excellent experience- everyone was welcoming and very willing to answer any questions. Dr. Shatz explained the procedure very clearly, answered all questions, and gave good advice. The evaluation day was very efficient- all measurements, etc. were dealt with well and again all my questions were answered and explanations were given. On the day of the procedure, everyone was very reassuring. I was nervous but everyone did everything to make me feel comfortable. The procedure itself was very quick. Thank you very much to all involved.”

Saline Fiora

“Sight is just a blessing. When I came to have my eyes done, it was nothing like I could have imagined. The facility was super clean and the dedication to keeping it sterile was so refreshing. Now the day of the procedure, the anesthesiologist listened to my request for as light as possible. I felt nothing and did not feel drugged either. Everything was explained and wonderful. In a nut shell, I can see clearly and even the little type. Thank you for blessing me with your kindness and knowledge.”

-S.F.

Enrique Villa

“As a software developer, my eyes are the most important asset trying to work with dual monitors with a cataract forming on the right eye was a nightmare. At SightTrust Eye Institute, a professional staff performed several tests with top of the line equipment. Dr. Shatz examined my right eye thoroughly and diagnosed cataracts. The idea of undergoing eye surgery could be scary. However, with the confidence Dr. Shatz instills, his knowledge and expertise, I was ready to make the decision right there. I am a technical person, presented with the choice of surgery in the eye with laser vs a knife, the choice was clear – LASER. After the surgery the results were amazing, my right vision was restored. The doctor says it only gets better from this point, so I am more than thankful to Dr. Shatz and his amazing team.”

– E.V.

“My experience with Dr. Shatz and his staff has been excellent. They totally put my mind at ease prior to surgery. They answered all of my questions and kept me informed as to what to expect. The surgery itself was easy and painless and I was able to read by the next morning without glasses! I could not be more thrilled with all aspects of this experience.”

– B.M.

“I can’t thank you enough for my new and improved vision. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I have been to numerous visits and consultations with physicians for almost 6 years, none of the doctors made me trust them. The moment I met you I felt confident and impressed with your knowledge. You and your staff were a delight to work with and it was a great experience.”

– C.P.

“I was very impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of everyone in the office, but more so in the fact that Dr. Shatz was able to free me from my vision issues and bring my sight to 20/20 overnight. So very thankful!”

J.P.
“After wearing glasses for more than 40 years, due to a major astigmatism in both eyes, I am glasses-free! My astigmatism is gone. I am so grateful to Dr. Shatz and everyone at Sight Trust for the excellent care that I was given. Dr. Shatz is incredible. I never in my wildest dreams thought my astigmatism would be gone. I can’t say enough about SightTrust Eye Institute, Dr. Shatz, and his excellent staff. I have been telling all of my friends this is the only place to have eye surgery and I would only recommend Dr. Shatz 100%. Thank you again for taking such good care of me.”

R.D.
“Recently I needed to have cataracts removed from both of my eyes. My optometrist suggested Dr. Andrew Shatz, Sight Trust Institute in Sunrise. I took his advice and went to interview Dr. Shatz, who explained to me, in detail, step by step, exactly what was going to happen prior to, during, and after the surgery. He also explained to me what I should expect my eye sight to be after the surgery. When I pulled out my list of questions for the Doctor I looked down and realized he had answered every question that I had. With the most modern technology the surgery went so well and fast, I never experienced any pain. Thanks to Dr. Shatz and his wonderful and professional staff I now enjoy crystal clear 20/20 vision again. I tell friends about the outcome of the surgery this way: remember watching TV years ago and then came High Def, well that is what I am experiencing now. I amazed at how clear my vision is now. As usual, I forgot where my glasses are, but then I don’t care, as I don’t need them anymore.”

R.D.
“Thank you and the SightTrust Eye Institute staff for giving me my eye sight back. All of you are so professional and talented. The entire process from my first appointment until the time I walked out the door, after my second eye was done, was a delight just being around you all. This special thank you that I send to you all today holds more appreciation than words can say. For you’re all among the nicest people I have known and you’ll never be forgotten. Thank you.”T.M.
“In one word…FANTASTIC. I was well informed at the beginning of the process which dramatically raised my comfort level. The environment at SightTrust is clean and friendly and the best part is I woke up this morning and actually could see my alarm clock! First class experience. I highly recommend Dr. Shatz and the SightTrust team!”

K.B.
“There are few times in life when one day can make such a profound beneficial change to the quality of that life. Dr. Shatz and the team at SightTrust changed my vision from a source of frustration and worry to reason to celebrate that clear, bright beauty of the world and the joy of easy reading. Throughout the consultation, procedure and post procedure checkups everybody was courteous, reassuring and even fun. My only regret is I won’t be seeing the SightTrust team anymore.”

Jo Ann T.
I just want to “Thank You” again for the tremendous success of my surgery. I am so very happy that we found you in Ft. Lauderdale initially as a recommendation from my Ft. Lauderdale Client Partners. There was no doubt in my mind about the options that I was presented during the pre-screening, when I learned that you were a part of the Millennium – Sight Trust Eye Institute, especially since you had performed the lens replacement surgery for my husband in Atlanta years ago. His was also a “tremendous success”, due to your excellent reputation and expertise.

J.C.
“Experience was outstanding. I am a health care professional and was extremely impressed with the customer service/ public relations aspect of the staff. The staff was courteous, always smiling and pleasant. I expected good surgical results and was not disappointed. The overall atmosphere of the staff was a pleasant bonus”

D.C.
“I highly recommend the intraocular procedure. In one day I can see almost as well as I did with my contact lenses. The procedure was a piece of cake. I didn’t even need an anesthetic. Dr. Shatz and his entire team were a pleasure to deal with. They are professional, efficient and above all nice. Don’t hesitate to get this done… I am a convert!”

D.C.
“From the minute we made contact with staff at SightTrust through all the follow-ups, we were impressed with the professionalism, empathy, and caring concern offered throughout my mom’s cataract surgery. Most importantly, my elderly mom was tenderly cared for and treated most respectfully by Dr. Shatz. It is wonderful to have her really SEE me once again. I have had many meetings with a wide variety of doctors, and SightTrust is at the top of my list for quality patient care.”

M.B.
“This experience was above expectations. Dr. Shatz instilled confidence and caring. His entire staff is outstanding in all areas. A procedure that could arouse fear was handled in such a way that I was comfortable the entire time. Kudos to all. Most of all my sight is great and was accomplished with ease.”

S.K.
“I can see! I tell my family I have “bionic eyes”. The multifocal lens surgery was certainly innovative. All of your caregivers (office staff, technician, physicians and nurses) were kind, patient, understanding and informative. Surgery day I was comforted by all.”

L.M.
“Everything about my recent experience was “AAA”. Dr. Shatz and his entire staff were efficient, on schedule, and carried out with upbeat attitudes!”

B.M.
“I wish to thank Dr. Shatz and his wonderful staff in the care and professionalism that I received. The result is awesome – thanks again.”

L.M.
“You and your wonderful team have changed my life forever! I can’t begin to thank you enough!.”

A.S.
“To say my experience with the quality and professionalism of the staff at “SIGHT TRUST” was really unexpected is a gross understatement. I was very impressed with my treatment from my initial phone call to my post-op visit. It was outstanding.

My health care plan Dr. said that I did not need to have cataract surgery nor lens implants despite my complaints of not being able to see at night and had blurred vision during the day. I decided to have a better quality of life by undergoing the procedures without the financial assistance of the Plan. I am pleased that I did.

I can now see clearly both in the day and at night. The most important result of these procedures is my ability to see fish in the water which is great when I am in some foreign country fly fishing in salt water.

I would recommend this facility and staff to anyone that truly wants to improve their vision.”

C.G.

“This may seem silly, but my care was better than most of my “5 star” hotel stays!! You are all “5 star” to me. Thank you for making me feel comfortable and safe in your care.”

J.T.

“I don’t have enough words to express my satisfaction with every single member of the staff with whom I came into contact.”

M.C.
“I am very thankful to the Dr. and staff for being so patient with me; I will recommend you to my family and friends for the professionalism and knowledge you have shown.”

S.L.
“I was referred to Sight Trust Eye Institute by a friend who had a positive result from his Intraocular Lens Implant (IOL) procedure. After observing his results for nearly six months I went in for a consultation and was pleased with the extensive examination and documentation of my specific eye problems.

Friday March 1st 2013 was my first day without glasses in over 7 years! From consultation to surgery to post surgery care, I could not be more satisfied with the whole team at Sight Trust. Dr. Shatz is a true professional who knows what he is doing and he does it with enthusiasm for his patients.

If you want to be free from glasses or contact lenses these people can make it happen. Don’t be like me wondering why I waited so long. (This message was typed without glasses)”

R.W.
“I have to say honestly, this is probably the BEST experience ever having surgery done. I am so pleased. Your staff is amazing!”

J.W.
“Giving me the gift of sight was a miracle to me and I cannot express the extent of my gratitude. Everyone that I came in contact with was extremely friendly and helpful. You made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. Thank you!”

B.W.
“You all do an exemplary job!! It’s been life-changing for me and has given me new freedoms that I haven’t had in a very, very long time and some that I have never had. Thank you!!!”

L.H.
“You have the 3 P’s: Patience, Perfection, Professional A+++!! This was filled out glasses free!!”

J.M.
“Rarely have I experienced such a thorough, comfortable, informative and cheerful medical clinic all in one package!! Surprisingly my husband actually enjoyed accompanying and waiting for me, you were that good!”

L.M.
“So happy! I was scheduled to have corrective eye surgery for distance only, but just prior to my appointment I elected to correct both eyes for distance and close up. So glad I did! The staff are all caring and clearly explain each step of the process. Painless and would highly recommend SightTrust Eye Institute!”

J.B.
“Waking up in the morning was like seeing the world new again. Everything was crystal clear. Best investment I have ever made. Thank you so much!”

Dr. C.C.
“Thank you so much for your great service. My vision is laser sharp now! I say a ‘Thank You’ to you all every day!”

I.C.
“I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for your kindness and skill in restoring my ever deteriorating eyesight. The difference to my life is extraordinary and it is all thanks to you!.”

B.T.
“There are no words to thank you for the amazing, personal, wonderful, professional care that I have received while in your hands. I am truly indebted to you all.”

L.B.
“Just wanted to tell you how happy I am with my new eyes!! It is a pleasure to see everything clearly and with no effort…thanks to you, Dr. Shatz. I’m loving life more than ever!!!”

M.N.
“I recently had a surgery for a cataract and a ReSTOR lens, and wanted to thank you again. I could not be happier with the outcome. The vision in that eye is now 20/15, and still improving. As a competitive shooter, I have noticed a huge improvement in my scores, driving at night is now a pleasure, and no more contact lenses or glasses. At my most recent follow up visit my Optometrist said I should be the poster boy for this type surgery, and he also continues to be impressed with your work, and the outcome. Again, thanks again. I will continue to recommend you, and your staff.”

M.N.
“Your staff is outstanding! Cannot believe the improvement to my vision…Outstanding! Thank you!”

N.B.
“We went to a movie; sat fairly far back, and the screen was like an HD screen for me without any glasses … The picture was so crisp and clear. It was truly amazing, especially since it has been just 2 days since my new ReSTOR lens… I cannot thank you enough, and I am so happy that I trusted you and your treatment plan for my vision (you know how nervous I was to have any additional procedures after RK and Lasik). You are an amazing surgeon, and a great communicator. Thank you so much!”

Jo Ann T.
“I just want to “Thank You” again for the tremendous success of my surgery…”

Amy P.
“I can’t believe how bright colors really are! I can’t believe what I was missing!”

H.C.
“I had confidence the 1st time you treated me and I thank you for taking such good care of me. You are a great doctor. Thank you so much!

Seija K.
Dr. Shatz, Well, You gave me such a HUGE gift that not only improved my eyesight but improved the quality of my life general and made everything so much more enjoyable and easier. I was going blind w/o really realizing it for the last 3 years or so. You are a gifted surgeon and I pray that God will bless your hands and keeps you encouraged and inspired in your field to help people.

Charles R.
A quick note to say a BIG thank you for operating on both my eyes last year. Although having just turned 50 I am not the bionic man, my vision is now of bionic caliber and all thanks to you. Your practice, staff, professionalism and expertise were all outstanding. The vision in my left eye, that you tweaked a couple of weeks ago, is crystal clear and without issue. I will certainly recommend your services without reservation to anybody who asks.

Doctor Shatz and Staff, First, I hope that you take a moment and share this with you staff as well. Dr. Shatz, please accept my heartfelt thanks for the professional yet empathetic way I was treated by you and your entire staff. The results of your God given talent are a gift to be envied. I could not be happier with the results. I was blown away by the hand written note from a professional service giver and, believe me, I will recommend you and your staff to all. Additionally, you should be extremely proud of the staff with which you have surrounded yourself. Each with whom I came into contact was professional yet friendly, warm and pleasant. It felt to me that they truly cared about me and my results. Again, all I can say is a big thank you! Sincerely,

When personnel at the outpatient facility ‘lit up’ when I indicated I was having surgery with Dr. Shatz, I suspected I was blessed by an outstanding human being as well as surgeon. Visual acuity is such an important window to functionality and what a blessing it is to literally ‘see again.’ I congratulate you on your contributions and thank you profusely as I count my blessings. All the best.

Dr. Shatz, I want to thank you for making me see so well. You have remarkably changed my life.

Dear Dr. Shatz, Thanks to you I am writing this note without any help from eye glasses. I really appreciate your interest and patience. Especially when I was undecided as to which lens I wanted. You carefully explained the difference (again) and helped make my decision easier. You are probably the most accessible doctor I have experienced and there have been many. Thank you for all you have done. P.S. This was written less than 24 hours post surgery!

Christohper M.
Dear Dr. Shatz, You recently completed my second cataract surgery and I wish to thank you for the care and consideration you and your staff provided. As mentioned during our initial meeting, I have had so many surgeries that I was fearful of another, especially an eye surgery. However, your skill and the ease of the surgery helped me through this stressful time. The second surgery was “a breeze.” Dr. Shatz, you have given me something that I have not had in many, many years – my sight. After wearing eyeglasses and contact lenses since the 3rd or 4rth grade – more than 45 years – the ability to see without help is unbelievable. As I was preparing for bed, I gathered my contact material (i.e. contact case, saline solution, etc.) and started taking my “contacts” out of my eyes! Thankfully, I realized my error before touching my eye.

G.P.

“What can I say….I thought I would NEVER have 20/20 vision. I now have 20/15 vision which is even better! I went to 3-4 doctors and they all told me I would need hard contacts and that I would not be able to have surgery because of everything wrong with my eyes. I hated not seeing; I was in contacts all day and sleeping in my glasses so I could see if I had to get up in the middle of the night. A year ago when Dr. Shatz said, “let’s do the surgery, you will have 20/20″ I didn’t know how to react. After the surgeries I was scared because the results weren’t instant, but after 3 weeks I could see great! As time went by it just got better, every time I would come in it was great news. Every nurse, doctor and employee I ever spoke to has been amazing. I would recommend SightTrust to everyone and I have because I couldn’t be happier.”
