Verified Patient Reviews
Doctor was very informational and answered all my concerns. Wait time was very prompt
Dr. Ahuja and staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. I'd happily recommend to family and friends.
Doctor Richard Ahuja was exceptional. He was extremely kind and considerate and actually cared for my well-being. My treatment required very expensive eye drops but he was able to give me 2 samples bottles and a valuable coupon to help with the cost. Overall, I couldn't recommend Dr Ahuja and his practice enough.
I have written reviews for Dr. Ahuja before but every time I see him I just want to rave some more. He is one of my favorite doctors in general and certainly my favorite specialist of all time for retinal concerns. He has excellent bedside manners, is very patient and clear with his explanations and in answering your questions, and he makes you feel like a real patient, not just a number. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Dr. Ahuja was the most pleasant Ophthalmologist I've seen so far. He was incredibly nice and caring and really listened to all my concerns. He really took time with me to explain how the eye works and what specifically was happening in my eye that was causing my symptoms. Would highly recommend.

He was excellent
Dr. Ahuja and his team were great. I felt like he really listened to me and my concerns. Would highly recommend him.
Dr. Ahuja is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He thoroughly explains the eye and how it functions, treatment options are discussed in relation to your visit, and he answers all questions promptly. This allows you to make an informed decision under his guidance on how you would like to proceed with your care and treatment which is a huge plus for myself. Highly recommended.
Dr. Ahuja was extremely open and communicative
Dr Richard was awesome! He was patient and listened to all of my questions at the beginnings, took notes and then answered them all at the end of the session! He also noted that one of my questions was out of his medical field and recommended another specialist to look after it. In general, I highly recommend Dr Richard for any issues related to your retina, and I plan to keep checking mine routinely at his office.
Excellent doctor, very knowledgeable, patient and kind.
I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Ahuja and his staff. Both he and the nurse exhibited excellent bedside manner. They were patient and answered any questions I had. Dr. Ahuja took time to explain how the eye works and what exactly he was looking for during my visit. I'm glad I found an eye doctor I can trust and will be going back whenever I need to. Super clean, modern office and equipment, and convenient that they are open on Saturdays and easy to get to using public transportation.
Very kind, very thorough, informative and up to date.
Dr. Ahuja was very professional. He had great bedside manner and listened to everything I had to say intently and without rushing me. The eye exam itself was quick and painless.
I went in for a broken blood vessel. He did a very comprehensive exam and did far more than I expected. I was very pleased.
