What Our Patients Have to Say


I was having blurry vision for almost 3 years now. Sometimes, I would lose vision in one eye completely. My Retinal Specialist in Charleston referred me to the Retinal Institute in Murrells Inlet. I saw Dr. Jimenez and my eyesight has improved tremendously. I am so thankful to him. The office staff is very efficient and professional. Please do yourself a favor if you are having eyesight problems. Go to Retinal Institute in Conway or Murrells Inlet even if it is for a second opinion. Dr. Jimenez knows what he is doing and I have complete faith in him. My only regret is that I didn't know of him sooner.

Mary N.

I had an eye emergency while on vacation. This office is efficient, well-run, compassionate, & professional. The staff is amazing, and Dr. Marchase is wonderful!!

Celeste C.

I was a patient of Dr. Jimenez when he was in Louisiana. Not only was he the only physician that diagnosed me correctly, he saved my vision. I will be forever grateful to him. He is kind, compassionate, and listens to you.

Jennifer D.

Dr. Jorge Jiminez was my daughter's Physician in Baton Rouge, LA. He prevented her from going blind. His immediate action and expertise has saved her vision. Our family highly recommends him to patients in South Carolina. We were so thankful to have him.

Nancy C.

I want to thank the both of you for your kindness, patience, skills, and expertise. Being a nervous anxious patient isn’t the best introduction on our first visit. You both had great listening skills and dealt with my anxiety over the visit very nicely! I appreciate that. All of your team that I came into contact with were wonderful and caring. Please tell Carol, Kaylee, and Dalia thank you very much. Your check-in/check-out staff were friendly too! Great team work! Thank you.

Linda D.

I can not thank you and your entire staff enough. Your quick response, professionalism and kindness was paramount. I truly appreciate everything you and your staff did to make my surgery go so smoothly!

William C.

This bouquet from my garden is only possible because of your care & skill in repairing my eyesight. Thank you isn’t big enough. So grateful.

Linda L.

A couple years ago I came to your office while on vacation from Greenville, SC. You diagnosed me as having a torn retina. You worked with me immediately and through your care and medical expertise, and the surgery of Retina Consultants when I returned to Greenville, my right eye was restored and I have 20/20 vision in my eyes. I just want to say ‘thank you’ for your part in saving my eye, explaining exactly what I needed to do, and for the great care everyone in your office gave to me!

Alan W.

Amazing staff, brilliant doctors. They truly care and are patient, responding thoughtfully to all questions or eye concerns. Highly recommend!!! What a gift to have such a fine place in Conway!

Susan S.

Runs like a well-oiled machine. The entire staff is friendly, professional and explains things thoroughly. I am a snowbird who had an eye emergency and they got me in very promptly and took care of it.

Suzanne S.

Professionalism, expertise and compassionate care.

Page T.

Great practice! 5 stars all the way. Spent a lot of time answering all my questions initially and gave me real confidence. The staff are terrific and seem to really like working there. Dr. Marchase has put it all together.

Mary P.

This is the best, well run office. Everyone is so polite. Extremely happy with Dr. Marchase. This Doctor is well educated on eye diseases. Highly recommend.

Lee G.

Really friendly and knowledgeable staff. Dr. Marchase addressed all of my questions, and Dr. Rumbach was very helpful when it came to details regarding follow-up care. Highly recommend.

Haczel H.

Dr. Marchase is great and really takes care of his patients. From meeting me at 6:30 pm on a Saturday night to repair a torn retina and keep it from possibly detaching causing blindness to responding to my concerns over the weekend and into the next week when I developed iritis he was always there and helping to save my eyesight. Would definitely recommend him if you need a retina specialist.

Yvonne C.

Dr. Marchase is a competent, capable professional. You are in good hands with him and the region is indeed blessed to have his medical practice located here. His staff is among the best I have ever had the pleasure to experience.

Steve S.

I had an eye emergency while visiting South Carolina on business. Given the symptoms I was experiencing, my ophthalmologist in upstate New York strongly recommended getting checked immediately. One call to the South Carolina Retina Institute was all I needed. I was treated immediately that day. This Institute is amazing, from the competence and professionalism of every staff member to the kindness and respect I experienced and witnessed extended to every person who walked in their door. Five stars doesn’t come close to conveying the quality of this place. They are the Gold Standard in healthcare.
