They gave me the correct diagnosis (that urgent care missed). They were able to get me into an earlier appointment than the one I originally scheduled. They answered all my questions fully and were helpful getting my prescription filled afterall the pharmacies in the area didn't have what the Doctor originally prescribed. Thank you - will be back again for any eye care needs!

Dr. Patel was my ideal in every way: kind, patient, conscientious, clear. He gave me more than enough time to understand my eye issues. Also, Sonia, his assistant, was lovely. This was the very best experience I've had with any doctor in a long time.
