I was treated with kindness from the moment I walked into Dr. Radhakrishnan's office. This kindness extended through an exceedingly brief wait in the sitting room (just long enough to fill out my paperwork), my time in the examination chair,and settling up at the front desk at the end of my visit. Dr. Radhakrishnan is affable, attentive, and responsive to questions. One gets the sense that she is motivated by a genuine desire to care for people. Highly recommended.

Dr. Radhakrishnan was great. She took the time to get a detailed history, checked my existing prescription and made recommendations based on what was most comfortable for me. I also left with a fairly large solution sample, which was great,because it meant I didn't have to stop and pick any up after my appointment.

Dr. Radhakrishnan was very friendly and personable and provided a thorough eye examination and explained what each procedure was testing for and the results. This put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. She thoroughly discussed her findingswith me and helped me to choose what, if any, medication that I will be comfortable taking. She took her time and did not rush through any part of the examination. She made sure that I understood her findings and made sure that the medications that she was recommending was covered by my insurance. She even called my pharmacy to check on a new medication to ensure that the medication was appropriate. She even gave me samples of medications that she was recommending. I very highly recommend her.

Amazing experience! I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Radhakrishnan. I booked he appointment the appointment via Zocdoc as it said they took my insurance. This being new insurance I didn't realize I required a referral before seeing her.As soon as she realized this she offered to call my insurance and see if we could do without a referral and then also offered to call a provider to get a referral. It ended up that it was easier and cheaper for me to self pay a very reasonable rate. She guided me through the full exam with great bedside manner and did not try to upsell me on LASIK like I've gotten from every eye doctor I've ever gone to. Really went above and beyond for a new patient she did not even know. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a great ophthalmologist!
