  • Dr. Schott is the best eye doctor I have been too. He is very helpful and kind. I always feel welcome as soon as I step in the door. Jessica is also very kind and will always assist you with any issues. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone!
  • Dr. Schott and his staff are always punctual, attentive and professional. I only wish my experience with other doctors could be as pleasant as when I'm seen by Dr. Schott at Maitland Vision Center. My 12 year old daughter and I would go nowhere else for our annual eye exams!
  • Great service. Friendly staff. Easy to make an appointment. I have a lot of confidence in the team!
  • They know how to treat people right. I have been with them for 25+ years and I can say I love going to the eye doctor!!
  • I've been a patient for 16 years. WONDERFUL staff, amazing Doctors and their eye glasses center is very modern and fashion forward. If you love your eyes and love yourself then you need to be their patient.
