My experiences with Dr. Cessec have been great. I was seeing him a few years ago at the Scott&White Clinic at Sun City and then he left so I was assigned another eye care physician. The other physician was also very good but when informed that Dr. Cessec was back at the Sun City Clinic, I was glad to be able to come back there to see him. I will continue to go to Dr. Cessec unless he leaves to go elsewhere.

Dr. was very knowledgeable. Even with me being a nurse practitioner, I never had this procedure before the doctor could have went into more detail about what laser surgery treatments entailed. I had this vision of needles being stuck in my eye only to find out they numbed my eye with numbing drops. Don\'t assume explain it anyway.

This was the most pleasant eye exam experience I have ever encountered. The provider and his staff were kind, caring, and professional. The examination was thorough, and all aspects of it explained.

The tech did my eye exam it has been 3 years cin-cin exam I didn\'t know until I went to an eyeglass provider that I was given a very different prescription than that of my eyes I was also told by another optometrist I visited later that month that I had a cataract and I was not told of that information at the office. This upset me very much and I will not go back to this provider
