About Me:

My clinical interest is in the improvement of my patients' lives through personalized compassionate care, with an emphasis on preservation and restoration of vision and eye health. I fulfill this interest through the comprehensive management of a wide variety of eye-related health conditions. These conditions range from highly acute issues like ophthalmic trauma, angle closure, and ocular inflammation, through more chronic diseases like diabetes, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts. I also enjoy seeing healthy eyes, where I have the opportunity to educate my patients on how to maintain excellent eye health. One of my favorite things to do for my patients is cataract surgery. Cataract surgery can safely and effectively restore sight to an otherwise visually-disabled eye. Even better, with only a slight modification in technique and instrumentation, I can take cataract surgery to developing countries and help tackle one of the worlds leading causes of curable blindness.

Patient Rating

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

I was upset that it was noted on my chart that I needed a wheelchair and told one would be waiting in the lobby for me. it took over 30 minutes of stressful confusion with lady in lobby and trying to communicate with the eye doctors office. my driver finally had to walk over to the hospital and wheeled a wheelchair to her car so I could get to my appointment. a medical establishment should be more accountable. I dread having to have more appointments here if this is not solved.

Dr. Acohido is very attentive, professional, personable and outgoing. I feel like my glaucoma problems are in good hands. He was recommended very highly by my primary care physician. I trust her advice implicitly and she was spot on in her recommendation of Dr. Acohido.

Dr Blake is always very kind, caring and knowledgeable. I respect him and the information provided. I am never late for appointments but yesterday I was late about 15minutes but he was willing to see me. I was late because of road problems and detours. Always good to see Dr Blake.

Full disclosure: I am a semi-retired physician myself. This was my first experience meeting Dr. Acohido, as I previously had eye care elsewhere. This was the kind of visit that demonstrates it IS possible to overcome the challenges of our current system and deliver patient-centered care in spite of the stressors which we all face (now exacerbated by the pandemic). Dr. Acohido's staff was warm and efficient. He had clearly reviewed my records. He gave clear information in plain English, answered my questions thoughtfully, and also added education about my aging eyes and how to protect their health that was much appreciated. I felt empowered by information that helped me understand my conditions (particularly regarding cataracts and assessing need for surgery). AND he was kind, made eye contact, showed interest in me as a person. All while moving efficiently through what I am sure was a very routine new patient visit for him. I left feeling seen, heard, and cared for/about. Having consumed a fair amount of health care, often for serious illnesses, in the last several years, this visit stands out. I am grateful that my wonderful PCP made this referral.

Wasn't overly happy with getting sidelined for someone who had already been seen by the tech because she wanted to chit-chat more which meant me sitting in the room for 15 minutes before they came back in and started which also led to me being there longer since I needed to have my eyes dialated. I listened to the doctor go into another room 15 minutes after my eyes were dialated which meant (told I had to wait 20 mintues) I was stuck there even longer. Seems like if I had actually been seen on time, I could have been out at least 30 minutes sooner. Other than that, everyone was very professional, polite and respectful. Very much appreciated that.

The receptionist should acknowledge patients that are waiting. i knew she was busy, and I stood there waiting. After 2 minutes, she acknowledged me with no eye contact. She never looked away from her screen. It takes no time at all to acknowledge and welcome and tell a patient you will be with them in a minute. She is the face of the business. An extension of Acohido's name and reputation. He is amazing. His staff should be just as amazing.

When I entered, there was a man in the waiting room who was not wearing his mask. He had it pulled down under his chin. It would be helpful to have a sign on the door asking everyone to wear their masks and keep them on upon entering the office. I mentioned it to the staff, he heard me and put on his mask. Otherwise, i witnessed staff disinfecting surfaces whenever anyone exited the office and overall procedures were good.
