This was my first appointment with Dr. Gupta. I arrived a bit early to do some paperwork but was seen by an assistant right around my scheduled appointment time for some diagnostics. I was seen by the doctor soon after that.Doctor Gupta was friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. The staff was as well.

Dr. Gupta seems knowledgeable and professional, but her bedside manner made me anxious about my condition. She wasn't willing to coordinate with my surgeon in my former hometown because she was scared of liability issues. I saw a few other ophthalmologistsshortly after this to get other opinions, and none of them seemed to panic as much as she did. I then proceeded to have a lot of issues with insurance claims afterwards, because the fax number that they put on their website is not the fax number that they want you to actually fax insurance documents. They kept claiming that the faxes were never sent.

On my very first visit Dr. Gupta became my Eye Dr., I don't really see any need to see another Dr. The entire Team did a good job to take care of me, to answer my questions and to give merecommendations. I have booked for my wife to come and see Dr. Gupta in two weeks and I will recommend her to my Daughter. Thank you for your referral,
