While most spend Thanksgiving with family and friends, Dr. Stephen Jones chooses to spend every year in Mexico, helping its impoverished residents fight blindness. When Jones is on these trips, he witnesses the moment when people realize they can see for the first time in years. In Fort Myers, Jones uses a holistic approach to diagnose and treat his patients.

“Every patient deserves my best, whether they are having a minor problem or a major surgery,” he says. “They have come to see me and are putting their trust in me, and I don’t take that lightly.”

Originally from Ohio, his love of the west coast of Florida drew him to the Fort Myers area where he enjoys archery, motorcycles and cooking.
