"I highly recommend Dr Clewner, I consulted him for a second opinion and he was thorough, knowledgeable, caring and very clear in his explanation."
"Dr. Clewner is the best ophthalmologist I have met. I had my chalazion removed back in 2002 That was done in his clinic with absolutely no issues. I’ve been going to him for several years until I changed my employment to Broward county. Due to distance, I had to change my eye specialist, that was a mistake on my part because I should have stayed with Dr. Clewner all the way. However 3 years ago I decided to go back To see him on an annual basis because he was definitely worth the drive. The staff is incredibly professional and friendly. Roger Romer, the contact lens specialist who also works with them is another great individual to get contacts from. I strongly and highly recommend Dr. Clewner and his clinic. You’ll have to experience it for yourself to see the high quality level of treatment you’ll be receiving."
"Highest quality of the entire Staff! As a Patient of Record for over 30 years, it has never changed, from Dr Clewner to any member of his Staff my confidence is always reassured! I have 3 month appointments… I find myself looking forward to each visit… as a Professional it is truly evident that each Staff member highly regards and respects their role in caring for my eyes… thank you all for sharing your healing touches"
"Not only is Dr. Clewner the best ophthalmologist I've ever seen... his office is the most patient-centered, hard-working doctor's office I know. The culture is "your medical issues are important and YOU are important." Can't ask for more than that. I appreciate them very much."
"The team at Clewner and Kelly are wonderful and passionate about the care they deliver. I have been a patient for several years and I would not trust my eyes with anyone else. Sara, in the eyeglass store, is also very helpful and informative. These guys understand customer service!"
