My first visit went so very well. Dr Tarabishy and his staff are professional, exceptionally nice, and so very caring. This was my 46th injection (45 inj. from a different Dr in another State) and it was the first injection I had that afterwards the Dr. needed to tell me I was done! Amazing! I'm so happy to have my new Retina Dr and staff. I will be telling everyone I know about Dr Tarabishy and Retina Specialists of Tampa! Wishing I could rate y'all with a lot more then 5 Stars. Thank you!

Such an overwhelming feeling when one thinks they are losing their vision. Dr. Tarabishy and his staff got me in on a same day referral, worked with me with payment due to an insurance snafu, and were the most professional and CARING group of providers. And the scary thought of an eye injection was laid to rest. Can't say enough positive about he and his staff.

I would rate more stars if I could. This is the best retina specialist I have visited. Dr. Tarabishi and his staff are professional.. He and his staff are the best! I would recommend him to anyone.. I went in his office with branched retina vein occlusion and not being able to see out of my right eye to having my first treatment and by the next day I was able to see at least 45% better.. I will forever be greatful for the Dr I work for (Dr Nazir Hamoui) referring me to him.. Dr Tarabishi you are by far the greatest.. You are helping me to be able to see my 6 year old son grow and to see with both eyes.

I was very impressed with the professional care and courtesy I received from Dr.Tarabishy and his staff, from the moment I learned I needed retina surgery til the time it took to recuperate , everyone was just fabulous. I would highly recommend Dr, Tarabishy if you need or are searching for a highly skilled ,professional eye care practictioner. He was above and beyond concerned for my well being and I was very comfortable trusting my eyes to him. Thank you for all you did for me and for always remembering my name and which eye it was, I am forever grateful that you saved my eyesight and my eye . Your dogsitter client, Debbie

I would rate more stars if I could. This is the best retina specialist I have visited. Dr. Tarabishi and his staff are professionals, but they have that sense of humanism that gives you the security that you are in the best hands. When I visited him with my retinal detachment and he said that I needed a surgery I trust him and he did the best. Now I am recovering my eyesight and all thanks to this wonderful doctor. GOD bless Dr. Tarabishi ! I'll never forget you and your wonderful staff. We need more doctors like him. I will recommend him without hesitation.

I love Dr. T and all of the incredible ladies that work in the office. They all make it such a pleasant experience! Wish I could carry every one of them with me to all my other doctor appointments!! These are my eyes... And I trust him totally without question.

Attentive and courteous care from the moment you walk in the door. Techniques and procedures that are leading-edge and effective. If it weren't for their care and help I wouldn't be typing this review.

I cold called Dr Tarabishy at 9:30 am. Office manager Phaedra Lund had me in to see the doctor by 1pm. He told me I needed surgery on my retina. They had me in Florida Hospital Tampa by 5pm. The doctor came at 6:30 pm. Surgery at 7pm. Home by 11pm. I was amazed at the speedy, and excellent care I received from all concerned, including Florida Hospital Tampa. Special thanks to Phaedra Lund for all her help with my insurance, and Dr Tarabishy for the excellent care. I am on my way to full recovery.

My husband had a detached retina, it was severe. He did emergency surgery to restore his vision. Everything went well, a silicon ring was put in. A few days later my 5 year old accidentally hit my husband in that eye I called and within minutes the dr called me and met us to take care of his eye and our anxiety.
