Qualifications and Experience
Dr. Sundip Patel is a medical optometrist operating offices next to Eyemart locations in the Greater San Antonio area, serving New Braunfels since 2005 and Schertz since late 2012. Working with patients ages six and up, he is a competent and compassionate individual who takes time to thoroughly explain all eye-exam results to those in his care. He is a fee-for-service provider interested in giving you the best eye care possible. Since he does not sell glasses, he offers patients unbiased advice regarding any questions or concerns they might have. Because he doesn’t own the building or the equipment, he is able to keep his overhead low and passes those savings on to his patients. He provides wellness eye exams as well as medical eye exams monitoring for conditions including glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes, hypertension and cataracts. He also takes office visits for infections, foreign bodies, corneal abrasions and vision loss. In addition, he has plenty of experience fitting contact lenses of all kinds and you are able to purchase contacts lenses form his office. With the capability of having them shipped directly to your home. Dr. Patel received his training from The Pennsylvania College of Optometry, one of the oldest schools of the practice in America. When Dr. Patel isn't busy helping patients, you can find him spending time with his family, working on his car or cheering on the Spurs.
Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Patel is excellent ! I learned so much about my eye condition that was never explained or treated properly by any other doctor . I’m so happy that I’m his patient and getting treatment that I understand . He is very good at explaining things and is very thorough . Definitely recommend Dr. Patel very highly !
I LOVE this office. Everyone in this office has been & always is so friendly. I love that they explain every process they do. If you have questions, they stop then & explain with as much detail as possible. I truly feel Dr. Patel genuinely cares about his patients. I highly recommend this office to anyone needing to see an eye doctor or has any other problems or concerns about their eyes.
This doctor was awesome. Very knowledgable. Made sure I understood what he was saying. Very passionate about his job. Definitely keeping him as my eye doc.
He explain the conditions well, in terms a nonmedical person would understand
Fantastic. He really cares about his patients!
Very professional. The staff was nice. Dr Patel was very good with making sure the vision was clear not just okay.
Dr. Patel, OD is very professional & friendly. He tells you the what and whys of your condition very well and lets you know how to care for yourself at home. This is very much appreciated. Thank you Dr. Patel, OD.
Wait time was over 30 minutes, including the 15 minutes I was required to arrive early as a new patient, for at least 45 minutes. Everyone "was" nice, but I felt the doctor was feeding me with "so" much information using medical terminology rather than in layman's term, that I was totally overwhelmed. He was constantly talking "medical" and being a nurse, there is no way a patient can take in that much information in one sitting. I personally would not go back to him.
I love Dr. Patel. Our family has been going to him for years. He is so thorough and really cares about your eye health.
Super visit and very informative!
As always, it was great! I went to have a procedure done that I was quite nervous about, but Dr. Patel and his staff put me at ease right away. Dr. Patel explains everything he's going to do, explains what I need to do after, and there has never been 1 second in the time I've been seeing Dr. Patel that I didn't trust him 100%!! If you're looking for an exceptional eye Doctor, make an appointment with Dr. Patel. You won't be disappointed!!!
Very informative, did not rush with me. Always wanted to know if I was happy with what was being done and if I understood. Love that he was concerned about if I had any questions at all. Really was a wonderful first impression on my first visit! I will use him again in with all my eye needs.
Dr. Patel and staff are professional, courteous, and friendly.
I have been seeing Dr. Patel for close to 10 years and have never been disappointed with his professionalism or skills. I feel confident that if he were not able to attend to my needs, he would refer me to someone who could. Luckily, that has not happened. I highly recommend Dr. Patel and his staff for patients of all ages.
Very meticulous exam. Awesome doctor and he gives explaination of everything he does and listen s to his patients. I would recommend Dr. Patel to anyone. He is a Five-star doctor in opinion. Thanks Doc for making my world slot less blurry,
Great! Always respectful and has a vast knowledge of his chosen field of practice. Glad to have him in our community. Thanks
Dr. Patel is professional, personable, attentive, sincere and highly knowledgeable. I have complete confidence and trust in his skill and competence. Our wait was slightly longer than anticipated due to a walk-in patient with an immediate issue. I was happy to see that Dr. Patel seated the patient.
Love him he is the best I've been to
Dr. Patel was professional and explained things indepth and to my understanding.
He is very professional, very nice, calm demeanor, actually cares about what he's doing and in making sure the patient understands what's going on. I will never go to another Optometrist as long as Dr. Patel is in practice!!
I like Dr. Patel's bedside manner. He is direct and informative. He doesn't waste your time but he makes sure to answer all questions and keep me informed about my eye health!
Staff very friendly. Dr took time to explain everything to me and made sure that I understood his explainations of procedure and care.
As usual, a most pleasant visit.
Dr. Patel provides plenty of info so I can understand why he's offering the suggested treatment and answers all my questions!

Dr. Patel and his staff were excellent! I came in for my annual eye exam and they were very thorough about the whole process. I would recommend this office whether you are looking for a new doctor or just a check up.
He was great with my daughter, took time to explain things. Definitely recommend him to anyone that needs a new eye exam.
Dr.Patel is awesome.
Amazing. I was in and out in no time. I took my prescription next door and they made my glasses and it was a TOTAL of an hour and 15 minutes including exam. I'll never go anywhere else.
Dr Patel is great! He not only takes care of your vision but educates you as well! I'm normally anxious and can have some anxiety in medical exams. I have no angst with him. He has s calming nature. Office is clean and staff are professional. H
Received treatment for dry eye. Procedure was clearly explained, painless, skillfully performed and relatively quick. Follow up home care is easy to follow and effective. Expecting good results at two week follow up visit.
The ability to fill out all paperwork but 2 short forms on the Zocdoc app made for very efficient intake for a new patient. Support staff very friendly and capable. All procedures were clearly explained, taking great care to insure my comfort and understanding. Dr. Patel demonstrated the skill and knowledge to diagnose, treat and monitor the health of my eyes over the long term. Very convenient parking; close to I35 and an eyeglass shop right next door. Would definitely recommend Dr. Patel to a friend or family member.
The entire experience was awesome! Thank you Dr. Patel...
If you want the best OD doctor in town you have to go see Dr. Patel. I have been a long time customer and would recommend him for all your eye care needs.
Dr. Patel was very thorough and precise in diagnosing my eye problem. Takes his time with you and makes sure to explain everything. Also his exam prices are very reasonable. Staff was very friendly and professional.
Muy buena atension
Very patient with my autistic son.
Very fast, professional and excellent explanation of procedures and preventive care
I was very impressed with the professional manor that I was helped with all the aspects of my exam.
Felt like , I was over charged & when I questioned they blamed insurance . Got no break on contacts, even with insurance.
He is great and explains everything so you understand. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
He has great skills and for me with only one good eye a very important doctor for me.
Very thorough. He took the time to listen to me, and discussed my eye health and gave me tips on healthier habits to employ. Great experience!
He is very knowledgeable and takes his time. Great eye doctor.
As always very courteous, professional and helpful.
Very thorough exam. Extremely informative with discussions and explanations during the exam. Very nice facility.
He's very thorough, explains everything and educates at the same time; he seems interested in the client's wellbeing. Plus, he's a Spurs fan! That alone earns him 5 stars! :)
I was impressed. Dr. Patel went over my daughters eye infection so that she can understand it. You can tell he is very passionate about his job. I'm glad we found him.
This was my first visit with Dr. Patel, initially just to check my visual acuity for eyeglasses prescription. However, reading my symptoms of dry, burning, itchy eyes, he did further testing, detected that my lubricating glands are dysfunctional because of bacterial overgrowth, and recommended treatment for this condition. He is thorough, explains things so that I can understand, and doesn't pressure me into getting lots of extraneous tests or procedures. He is very busy, that's the only detractor to this visit; I wish I could have had a little more time for questions, but he does explain things well, so this is a minor trifle.
Our visit was amazing, the doctor was very knowledgeable and knew exactly what he was talking about. He clearly explained everything to us and made sure that we understood everything that he was informing us and continuously made sure we didn't have any questions. I really liked our experience that we had with the doctor.
Everyone in the office was very courteous and professional. Dr. Patel was very friendly
Very thorough,great caring manner.I will definitely recommend Dr.Patel.No long wait time and appointments are not overbooked.
Dr. Patel is very knowledgeable and treated my eye exam very professional.
Very helpful in refuting me out to the right Surgen for my needs
Great experience. He is very courteous, professional and took the time to explain everything he was doing. Highly recommend for visiting Dr. Patel for your eye health.
He spent an hour with me and explained everything that was happening with my eyes. I have always been pleased with my visits with him.
Office staff were prompt, engaged, and knowledgeable. Dr. Patel is nice, efficient, and thoroughly addressed all of our questions.
The staff was courteous and knowledgeable. Dr. Patel was easy to work with. He listened to me, acknowledged my concerns, and was honest and realistic in helping me understand how close he can help me see the way my brain tells me I should see. I highly recommend him and this office.
The doctor seemed very knowledgeable and was easy to work with. I had a stress-free exam. However, he said some things that seemed borderline homophobic. It wasn't anything aimed at a specific person, but it just didn't sit well with me. I have yet to decide if I will go back. I have had some pretty bad optometrists, and he seems to be really good at what he does. Price seemed average/affordable. Decide for yourself.
he is always so nice and professional. You are never kept waiting very long and yet he really takes his time with you and makes sure all your questions are answered. His staff is very nice and professional too.
Dr. Patel explains every thing about my eyes very accurately. We have been seeing him for last 4 years and wouldn't change our eye doctor. Very satisfied with results.

The ladies at the front desk were pleasant. Dr. Patel was very professional. He was nice enough. He did seem like he was in a hurry, keeping patient-doctor engagement to a minimum. All in all, a good doctor and gave me some recommendations to help improve at home eye care.
Best eye appointment we've had!! Took my daughter to a different place we waited an hour, then it took awhile after... Took about two hours.. Dr. Patel got us in right away very professional, had our glasses in 12 min.. I highly recommend Dr. Patel....

Have seen Dr. Patel for ten years now and will continue to see him.
Love the new office n location. This Dr is amazing. Straight to the point. I highly recommend him. Staff is super sweet and courteous to everyone. That's why we always come back.
Very good ??
Very speedy service from the moment I walked in the office. Very clean waiting area and the staff was very friendly. Dr. Patel is a bona fide expert in his field. Also the total cost is about half the price of any other optometrists in the area. Highly recommended!
Very professional staff and service,thank you!
Dr. Patel listens to concerns, explains things in detail for us, and his staff are friendly and professional. For my very, very picky daughter he is the only doctor that she enjoys her appointments!!!
Best and most Informative Dr. I learned more in the 20 minutes it took to exam my daughter than the years of going to other dr. Highly recommended. A Def must see. The Dr was not afraid to get on my daughter for what she was doing to her eyes. He's a great family man and cares what happens to your childrens eyes bc of these NOT so smart phones.
Appointment on time. Very thorough exam
Very well mannered. I was very comfortable being there. no stress at all. I would rather be there than the VA.
Very interested in ensuring patient gets the best results. Takes the time to explain everything, and when he refers to another Doctor he makes sure his staff contacts the Doctor to set up appointment.
Outstanding I felt well knowledgeable about my eyes conditions
Explained everything well
Very professional and informative. I didn't feel left in the dark when he spoke to me about my eyes and my newly discovered astigmatism. I had all my paperwork ready to go before hand, so got there 5 minutes before my appointment and was seen right away. It was a huge plus that he accepted my BXBS insurance since I don't currently have vision coverage. Definitely recommend seeing Dr Patel. The location is a little difficult to find currently because it's inside Wal Mart. He is opening a larger location in New Braunfels soon, so it will be easier. All in all, great experience.
Very dedicated and professional
He was very nice and very informative!
Excellent, efficient, not condescending and much needed
Great doctor, easy to talk to and very helpful. He even recomended a great place to take my daughter to pick out her new glasses!
The doctor was rude and used an unnecessarily harsh tone. The wait was much longer than it should've been considering I was the only patient, and the waiting room was unkempt.
Great experience...Dr. Patel explained what he was doing and why. He also was very thorough in his eye exam. Highly recommend him.
It was excellent
We had a nice visit. The doctor was very patient with my son.
Very professional and rhe staff super supportive
He's very thorough in his exams, doesn't beat around the bush, tells you what you need to do and expects you to do it. Very professional and at the same time, very likeable,
Too fast, not friendly and made us feel like it was a production line..get in, get out.
I am very pleased.
He is a wonderful doctor and very knowledgeable.
Very professional and knowledgeable
He was professional and quick.
Great! Fast, pleasant. Got my prescription. Took it to LensCrafter and had my glasses 2 hours later. They are perfect.
Excellent. Highly recommend!
Great Doctor, I was seeing in in the past but my insurance change so I had to g
I felt he was unprofessional as he does not listen to his clients. Every time I tried to explain some issues that I was having with my eyes, he kept interrupting me and did not let me explain. His exam is very rushed and I did not feel that it was as thorough as other places that I have gone to. I will not go back and I will not recommend this office/doctor.
I was back for my pressure test quickly and then within 10 minutes in to see Dr. Patel. Very professional and courteous.
The lady who did the initial eye check ups was very friendly, the check in lady was a little cold, and the doctor was very knowledgeable and kind!
The receptioist went out of her way to make sure I got the quickest appointment possible, that worked with my work-hours, when she found out my glasses broke (I got an appointment the day they broke). The staff was courterous, the wait was very reasonable, especially considering that they fit me in at the last minute. The OD was efficiant and kind. I highly recommend this place.
Dr. Patel is always friendly and professional.
