Dr. Sundip Patel, OD

Optometrist

Professional statement

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.

Dr. Patel is professional, kind, courteous and takes times to inform and educate his patients. I was with the same optometrist for over 20 yrs and never once did that doctor take the time and care that Sundip Patel has demonstratedeach time we have been to see him. He is professional and thorough. I wish I would have discovered him sooner! His staff is courteous and they talk you through each step. The office staff is equally kind and welcoming. I highly recommend Dr. Patel! You won't be disappointed. Michelle K.

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 usingmedical 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.

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 Ineed 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!!!

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 someonewho could. Luckily, that has not happened. I highly recommend Dr. Patel and his staff for patients of all ages.

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 mycomfort 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.
