Recently, I had to "fine-tune" an issue that had occurred post-operatively, and had treatment with the YAG laser system. It truly was painless, and I am happy to say that my situation is much improved. Thank you, Dr. Concool and staff for your kindness and compassion, as well as addressng every eye problem with concern, and the right treatment. I am grateful to Panhandle Vision Institute, and recommend them to people I know.


StarStarStarStarStar The primary focus of care is the medical condition being resolved —    (Patient since Tue Oct 27 00:00:00 MDT 2015)

The primary focus of care is the medical condition being resolved. The ambience created by the staff explaining the current situation and the next step provides a piece of mind reflecting the quality and dedication of each employee(person) and doctor. Also, the coordination between Sight and Sun and Panhandle was seemless from my intial visit through my first surgery and the next upcoming surgery scheduled. The text reminders takes the experience to the next level with hectic schedules. The last thing is that any communication via voicemail, email or text was returned the same day. In my line of work this result is culture established by people who like what they do and who they do it for. Thanks for a good experience! Andrews needs to evaluate/observe your office for best practices, efficiency and communication!

Whenever I visit Panhandle Vision Institute, I am always warmly greeted by all the staff. Each of them take the time to make me feel comfortable, and they always listen to any concerns or questions I have regarding my eyes. Dr. Concool and his excellent staff feel like family to me, and that is a great feeling. We are very lucky to have such an experienced, advanced ophthalmology practice in Pensacola, and I am extremely grateful to Dr. Concool for the wonderful care I have always received from him,and his staff.

StarStarStarStarStar The intake lady could be a bit more personal, although she warmed up later —    (Patient since Wed Aug 12 00:00:00 MDT 2015)

The intake lady could be a bit more personal, although she warmed up later. The clinic/eye doctor I've seen for years quoted me a price on your services that was not even close to the actual cost of the surgery. No bust on you, of course, but big disappointment for me. Jennifer, your assistant, handled herself well in that unfortunate situation, she was caught of guard, too. The young man helping explain why the cost was what it was did not help. I wasn't arguing, I was a bit embarrassed because, initially, I was ready to go. However, with a quote more then twice what I was told a week earlier, I had to ask your staff to hold on, I need to take this on and reconsider.


StarStarStarStarStar The technician was very helpful and kind she wasspot on when asking detailed questions —    (Patient since Tue Aug 11 00:00:00 MDT 2015)

My wife and I appreciated Dr. Concool's thorough examination and attention to detail. Further, when he expressed that my condition was beyond his area of expertise and that he would refer me to a neurologist for additional examination, we both appreciated his candor and honesty. He considers the care of his patient very important which makes him a valuable asset to your organization.

StarNo StarNo StarNo StarNo Star I feel as if Dr Concool is in this just for the money —    (Patient since Thu Dec 11 00:00:00 MST 2014)

I feel as if Dr Concool is in this just for the money. I don't understand how some costs could have more than doubled since my husband had catarac surgery there a year ago. The whole experience left me feeling as if I were being rushed to make a decision. Being told I was almost leagally blind by Dr Concool is nothing more than a scare method he seems to enjoy doing to scare people into making a quick decision for his financial gain. Please have the owner give me a call at 850-434-2973
