Came in for glaucoma check and as usual Maria guided me through the testing with ease. And Dr. Bovio did his exam as efficiently as always! I had some questions and he took the time to explain the "why's" of my situation. I have been coming to Dr. Bovio for over 20 years-no one I trust more!

Dr. Bovio and his staff are both friendly and very professional. Their new office is like a work of art, unfortunately I've never had the chance to just sit and take it all in because they take me withing minutes of arriving. The technological equipment is truly 21st century.

Very friendly staff, very personal. And dr. Bovio is the best! Been under his care for about 12 years. Very knowledgeable and very friendly and kind. Wouldn't go see anyone else! And I loved the new office. It felt like Hollywood when I first walked in! I have recommended him in the past, and will do so in the future!

I recently moved to Sarasota and was in need of a knowledgeable and professional optometrist. Dr. Bovio met my expectations. I was impressed with how well he understood my various eye conditions, as well as his ability to address each one. He established a plan that sounds hopeful. I was also impressed with his office staff and the beautiful and efficient manner in which they operate and run their office. They were extremely organized and efficient. Gulfcoast Eye Center is an outstanding establishment. In brief.....they know their stuff!
Mar 15, 2017
Nice staff, sent me reminders of my appointment, fast and prompt.

Great exam with knowledgeable staff. All new technology offers the best eye exam with quality results and selection of eye glssses are trendy and affordable.
Mar 7, 2017
The new office is fantastic. The over all visit went very well. The only issue I had is when they did a test that usually requires prior insurance approval. I did not get told about this and as a result had to pay out of pocket at the end. Next time something like that comes up for any patient please tell them and give them the option to pay out of pocket or get approval and come for a return visit. Some people don't have money laying around for things like that. Other than that charge, all other charges were expected.
Mar 3, 2017
Dr Bovio is so thorough with his knowledge and experience! It is a pleasure to have him as my eye doctor!
Mar 3, 2017
The office staff is very friendly and informative. The Dr actually sits and talks with you and goes over everything with you. Very courteous and friendly. The only thing I would say to change would be if the patient takes the time to fill out all the new patient paperwork on line then have someone input that information into their file instead of asking all the same questions over and over when they take you back for the pre exam. Just gets redundant.
Mar 2, 2017
Convenient location, incredibly attentive staff, and a great variety of frames to choose from. Dr Bovio is very kind, knowledgeable, and explains everything thoroughly. Overall a very positive experience - both the doctor and his staff genuinely care.

I think that everyone there does a great job to get you in and out and back to work
Jan 25, 2017
I had very bad eyesight and after seeing the doctor, he said I should wear a lens for my right eye. It took me time to get to put the lens in my eye, but now I do it by myself. I use ClearKone for my eye and it is made in the USA by SynergEyes. If you need help with your eyes go to Dr. Bovio and he will help you.

I liked how the technician, Maria, explained everything that she was going to do with all the different instruments/machines she used. I felt more comfortable knowing what to expect. The new office is very modern and a definite upgrade from the previous one.
