(One of Dr. Croley’s patients wrote the following letter to local news organizations)

Good Afternoon:
Thought I’d give you a heads-up for a true community service feature.

James Croley, MD is an eye surgeon located in Cape Coral [Bonita Springs and Lehigh Acres]. He has been serving in Cape Coral for about 30 years and has grown to be world renowned.

Dr. Croley enjoys a reputation, as a result of his professionalism and accomplishments, that serve to set him apart from any other in a delicate field. He’s a giving, feeling individual, dedicated to making better those things that serve to improve the quality of life in our society.

Dr. Croley has now authored a fabulous book entitled “Believing is Seeing.” The book is designed to provide insights into how to improve one’s health and welfare in a complicated world….and does just that!

I believe that a feature focusing on the life and times of this extraordinary man would represent a true community service.
In line with the Doctor’s giving persona…proceeds from the book sales will be donated towards Missions.

Happy Easter & God Bless,


Dr. Croley,
Thank you for seeing me as a new patient! You came highly recommended by [a friend] and I found my experience to be not only professional and thorough, but friendly as well! See you in February for a six-month check.

My Best,

Ps. It was a pleasure meeting your staff as well!”


Very professional office, staff and doctor.


I did not always know why I was doing some procedures but the end result was great and much better than expected.


I trust Dr.Croley with my eyes. He is the best eye doctor I have ever been to. He is genuinely concerned about my pressures and being diabetic he keeps track of any changes. I would and have recommended him to my friends. I feel blessed that Dr. Croley is looking after me.


Trust completely. Do not want to ever have to change doctor.


Very pleased and love the entire staff. Will highly recommend Dr. Croley. I have good results.


I’m now excited to get the other eye done.
