      I cannot say enough good things about the Eye Doctor of New Tampa. When I walked in everyone was happy and friendly. The exam was quick and easy with some extra exams to make sure that everything looked good. Then Jason and his team worked

      What a colossal waste of time. How can one justify spending well over two hours in an optical office?

      I've worn contacts since the 5th grade, and I'm now an adult...no exam has ever encompassed such a vast quantity of my valuable time. After filtering in many patients in between my seperate exam portions rather than just finishing out each patient's visit completely and seperately....it seems that I was forgotten. Or perhaps my time just wasn't as valuable as those bringing in hoardes of screaming children? Who knows.

      Additionally, after attempting to order contacts online, my order was summarily rejected by the office. They did not bother to contact me about the issue in any way. After I left a voicemail on their machine, I received ZERO contact from them for two weeks. Finally I called back, incensed, only to find out that the kindly doctor had left a note on my file regarding the issue. Thanks for letting me know personally, doc.

      An absolute Mickey Mouse Operation. If you can't handle how large your business has become, take fewer appointments, hire more people.... do something other than the current status quo.

      Although the exam with the doctor took longer than usual because she kept going back and forth between me and another patient, it is understandable. However, what was not acceptable was the inordinate amount of time wasted by the man that fits eyeglasses. Once I chose my glasses, it should have only take 10 minutes max to complete the estimate, however, not only did he waste my time due to many errors in calculating my insurance coverage and adding additional features I did not need without asking me, he also had to recalculate the numbers several times when I questioned him as to what several items were because he couldn't tell me. Because of my questioning, it resulted in a lower and more reasonable price on one pair. Additionally, when I was trying to decide between two different frames, I thought there was about a $70 difference because he gave me an incorrect price on one of the frames. The actual difference was almost $180! But at this point I had already spent so much time, I didn't want to start over so I just went with it.

      In addition, when I asked about other colors, he did look them up online, but failed to write the name down so he had to keep going online to find the name when it came time to place the order (doesn't sound like much, but the computer had been closed out since it was past closing time, so I had to wait for him to search the info again).

      However, the most annoying aspect was the time he wasted rambling on about errors he made in the past with other patients and the measures he took to correct them. He was breaking his arm patting himself on the back, rather than focusing on correctly calculating my order. He also blabbered on about when he owned an eye business and how he lost his retirement in bad investments and what a pain it was to apply my insurance, once again stating how he made many errors with it with other patients. I did not encourage the conversation...even checked my email on my phone and took a call from my husband who was incredulous that I was still at the eye doctors! After having been in the office for over 2 1/2 hours, I was anxious to get on my way before the traffic excalated and it was very frustrating to have him waste even more of my time in this way. When it was all said and done, it took a total of 3 1/2 hours to have my eyes examined and to pick out and order glasses. This is unacceptable as I had already traveled over 30 minutes just to get to this office. The fitter should focus less on apologizing and focus more on accuracy and professionalism.

      I think the other staff are very professional and the doctors are fantastic, especially Dr. Teske, however I may go elsewhere in the future because of the inconvenience and lack of respect for my time.

      Dr. Teske is the BEST optometrist I have ever been to. I read the great reviews before my appointment and was not disappointed. I had been having many problems trying to get the correct prescription and now I can see again! Dr. Teske takes the time to explain everything to you and is not happy unless you are happy. He also considers your problem and situation thoughtfully and actively tries to find a solution. The office staff is also very friendly and helpful. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Teske and his staff. Five stars all the way!!

      This was my first visit to the EyeDoctors of New Tampa and I had such a great experience- I wanted to share it. Dr. Teske is genuine, kind, and knowledgeable. He makes you feel comfortable throughout the exam process. He was gracious, welcoming and down to earth. Most importantly, you can tell he really cares about his patients and about his work. In addition, the front area staff were fun, friendly and helpful. They helped me choose great new frames, provided honest opinions, and were even nice enough to tighten my old frames for me which were falling apart! I had a great overall experience!!

      I live in Brandon and actually work at an optometry office and I went all the way to New Tampa in order to have Dr. Teske check my eyes because he's just that good! He's an excellent doctor and is very thorough in his exams to the point where he can be extremely accurate with even the smallest details. I'd would NEVER go to any other eye doctor, no matter the distance. He was able to be much more accurate with my Rx than the doctor that I had before him because of how thorough he is with his exams. He's also very friendly and makes all his customers feel comfortable and relaxed. Another thing that he does that it seems that not too many doctors do anymore is explain exactly what's going on with the health of your eyes in words that you can actually understand!! His office crew are also incredibly friendly and actually quite funny as well. Most of the time, when I go to any doctor, the office is always really quiet and nobody even smiles, let alone laughs, but his office staff all seem to have a sense of humor to the point where I actually enjoyed getting my eyes examined! To sum it up: He's a great doctor, he'll give you a very accurate Rx and great care, and your visit will be quite enjoyable :)

      I highly recommend The Eye Doctors of New Tampa. The staff was very pleasant, accommodating and professional. Dr. Teske was wonderful with my daughter who is 8 years old. He took the time to explain everything to us and did not rush through anything. I was so happy with the time he spent with us I made an appointment for the following day. I would recommend Dr. Teske to anyone who needs their eyes checked.

      From the time i enter the office,the front desk receptionist was awesome. You felt right at home. The ladies that did the initial exams was very polite and homely felt like you were family immediately. Dr. Teske,talk about a personable, informative, and easy going individual, well that sums up this individual. As a medical professional one would say he "has bedside manners". There is no experience to be compared to the encounter with Dr. Teske he was wonderful. At the other optometric office that i have gone to and its been a few (I having been wearing glasses for many years),i felt like a number and i went in for an oil change and thats what you were going to get and nothing else.i I had come to the conclusion that this was part of the requirement for optometry school but thanks to md Teske he changed my mind. thanks a million you really helped me not to give up on your colleagues.

      Haven't gone to an eye doctor in four years and needed an exam plus a fitting for contacts (first timer!) Receptionist staff EXTREMELY polite (offered bottled water). Dr. Teske is one of the NICEST doctors around, eye doctor or otherwise. He was very patient with me as we did the exam and offered a follow-up with me because he felt we could strengthen my eye "power". I feel like I got my life back, eyesight wise, because of Dr. Teske and his staff.

      (the only negative I have is the man who helped me through the process of learning how to put the contacts in. He was almost the exact opposite of everyone else in the office, seemed impatient with me; wasn't friendly in the slightest bit; hardly looked at me at all while I was trying to stick this contact lense in my eye for the very first time- I was very put off by him and had it not been for the rest of the office staff and the experience, I might not have gone back)
