Patient reviews for Dr. Shrishyla (Shri) Yelgar
Super nice and friendly. Very informative and eager to answer any questions/concerns.
Dr. Yelgar is great! He takes the time to understand how you well see and determine how he can help you see better, as well as possible. His assistants are very helpful and some of them speak Spanish as well. They all care about patients' well being. Thank you!
My visit was great. Dr. Yelgar took the time to chat with me about what I do and to explain the results of all of my eye health scans. He was really pleasant and I'm glad I made the change to him as my eye doctor. The office is conveniently located off the ACE line and there were A LOT of frame options (if you're into glasses).
Really easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable. Staff was nice and accommodating. Didn’t get seen immediately, but wait wasn’t too too long!
He is very professional and knowledgeable
Dr. Yelgar was very personable and thorough. He answered all my questions and explained different options for me.
Dr. Shrishyla was amazing. He was nice, insightful and left me feeling fully taken care of. I highly recommend him. The wait was a bit long especially for how short the actual appointment was, but not a deal breaker.
The doctor was very professional and very easy to speak to, providing me some honest and good guidance about my eye health. He was thorough and answered all my questions. Would definitely see him again!
Great doctor - super personable and took the time to explain things in simple terms. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Yelgar is wonderful. So sweet, so down to earth. He listens and is really helpful. The room is clean and the people are professional. Definitely pay Dr. Yelgar a visit, he’s great!
This doctor is awesome. I was worried about why my eyes were feeling weird after my trip and Dr. Shri was very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. The staff was amazing, from the compassion and helpfulness at the front desk to the professional ladies that did my pretesting before I saw the doctor. Not only did I walk out of the office with the information about what was going on with my eye health but I had an action plan about what to do next. It is very hard to find a doctor like Dr. Shri and I hope many people read this review and come see this doctor you will not regret it.
Very friendly and patient.
