As Florida Eye’s marketing director, one of my favorite things to do is to take some time to speak with patients who love to share the experiences they’ve had with the doctors and staff. Dr. Samuel (Walter) Askinas is one of these patients, and the retired air force dentist and Nova Southeastern professor made it a point recently to tell me he wanted people to know how accommodating Dr. Katz and the staff were when he showed up for Dr. Schechter, by mistake.

"I see them (Drs. Schechter and Katz) both, and on this particular appointment I was supposed to see Dr. Katz, but I was down for Dr. Schechter. It was such a busy day, but the office staff and Dr. Katz changed things around for me because Dr. Katz did not want me to have to go home and come back again. I’m sure he had to give up some or all of his lunch hour, but he was so kind and accommodating to me."

And just as important, added Dr. Askinas, is the care he has received from both Dr. Schechter and Dr. Katz over several years. It was Dr. Schechter who told Dr. Askinas he needed to see Dr. Katz because he had macular degeneration.

Now, cataract free and with his AMD well under control, Samuel couldn’t be happier. "I make it a point to tell anyone who needs eye care to go to Florida Eye. The doctors and staff are caring as well as knowledgeable and that makes all the difference."
