“My wife was a patient of Dr. Patel and she could not be happier with her treatment for glaucoma and astigmatism. He thoroughly explained all the options available to her and the benefits and associated risk. The two surgical procedures were well-organized and efficient, as has been the follow-on care and monitoring. Dr. Patel is an incredibly gifted surgeon and care provider and we feel fortunate to have found him. I will be recommending him to all my friends that require comprehensive eye care!” – Review from Google
“I had to have cataract surgery. Dr Patel performed both surgeries and the results are great! I’m seeing 20/20 with both eyes and can read most print up close. I am very satisfied with the work he has done. His support staff are top notch also. I would highly recommend Dr Patel and his staff for any eye needs you may have.” – Review from Google
