Dr. K was extremely pleasant and friendly, and actually seemed concerned in learning about me as a person. He listened carefully to all of my symptoms, conducted a test of my eyes, and reassured my concerns. Don't be discouraged when youwalk in and the main office looks a little run-down; Dr. K is great and definitely seemed to know what he was talking about.

Dr. Kulkarni was a Godsend to me. I had struggled with eye issues for years without success from prior eye doctors. I have glaucoma and chronic dry eye disease. The main problem was the dry eye. I know there is sometimesnot much one can do especially, when like me, lasik surgery was performed about 15 years ago, so really, I was just looking for answers. Dr. Kulkarni spent much time with me evaluating and listening to me concerning my dry eye. After, prescribing a new medication and some at home treatments like hot packs my dry eye has finally been controlled to the point where I can once again enjoy normal activities. I am extremely happy that I found Dr. Kulkarni!

I felt that he had a calming effect when treating me for my condition, at a time when I was full of anxiety. He called me personally to check on me and this is very special for a medical professional thesedays. He also seemed very knowledgeable, nation-wide, on my specific condition, explaining the possible direction this condition's research was headed.
