He took the time to explain the exam findings and outline the treatment plan in an easy to follow manner. He was personable and listened to my concerns.

Said they accepted EyeMed; then said only some people; seems a bit deceptive. Very friendly staff.

Dr. Selvaraj had an emergency but the office called me and set me up with one of the other doctors. Very nice office, professional and timely. The doctor I saw explained everything so I could easily understand and I had amuch better experience than my last visit with another ophthalmologist.

Dt. Selvaraj was great and my exam was fine. I wish I had known ahead of time that he doesn't do contact lens exams because now I have to come back for a separate appointment. Also not a huge deal butwhen I scheduled through zocodc I received a call that the time actually wasn't available and had to reschedule over the phone.
