★★★★★

Dr. Mears genuinely cares about her patients and takes care of complex cases that so many other doctors do not bother with. She never gives up and gives her entire heart into what she does. I see in the waiting room in Fort Myers how some of the other patients are impatient and seem really demanding, that she handles even the toughest personality types. We need to be nicer to our doctors.

★★★★★

She is the most thorough and detail-oriented retinal specialist I have had in my 55 years of doctors visits. She was the first one able to correctly identify my genetic disease and even has been able to get me enrolled in a clinical trial for this. I cannot say enough good things about this physician. If you have a complex issue that no one else can figure out, she will help you.
