Dr. Visanji and staff were friendly, quite helpful and accommodating to squeeze an appointment in for me. When my usual pharmacy was having computer issues to accept a rx, Dr. Visanji herself phoned in the rx to a local pharmacy, which was ready for pickup and allowed my treatment to begin immediately.

Great experience! Went to see her for a blocked gland on my bottom eyelid that has been irritating me for weeks. After having no luck with the antibiotic my general practitioner provided, I'm glad I finally went to see her. Went on my lunch break and was in and out in under 30 mins. Would definitely recommend her to anyone having irritating eye issues.

Dr. Visanji was prompt and productive throughout my eye appointment as i went during my lunch break. She was super friendly and personable. Her staff was also efficient and helped me fill out all necessary paper work on time. Dr. Visanji isn't pushy like other doctors that try to sell you on every eye product and exam. HIGHLY recommend!
