I was very pleased with the service I received today at San Antonio Eye Center. The following people I came in contact with were courteous and professional: (the woman at the front desk that checked me in; the female technician thatdid the eye chart exam and dilated my eyes; the male technician that placed me in a room to see the doctor; Dr Vasudha Panday addressed my concerns, did a professional eye exam, and answered all my questions; the female assistant who helped enter data into the computer for the doctor; and the woman at the back desk that scheduled follow up appointments and checked me out.) Also, the exam room and waiting rooms were very clean!!!

Saw Dr. Panday today and i was very very happy with my experience. The front desk workers and all other aids I met along the process were very nice people overall and were very professional. There were a lot of peoplewaiting to be seen when I first walked in, but the wait time was not as long as I would have expected for the amount of people. Dr. Panday seems like a very caring woman and she really made me feel like she genuinely wanted to help me. She took the time to really listen to me and my concerns, including all symptoms that may or may not be related to my current eye troubles.

Vasudha Panday, MD is quite good. Overall, I would probably trade for someone not quite so good if I could find a clinic that didn't overbook and had more respect for the patient. Waiting 45 minutes for the first appointment after lunch is totally unacceptable.

I took the earliest appointment that they offered to try to make it to work on time. I still waited 45 minutes to see the doctor. Of course I was late to work. My time must not be as valuable astheirs. Crazy By the end of the day the wait time doubles because of this.

Dr. Panday and her staff are professional, well organized and have great "bed side manners". During the procedure to remove my pterygium, Dr. Panday made me feel at ease and I did not experience any pain throughout the procedure. It was a refreshing experience. Thank you Dr. Panday and staff.

I knew what to expect but, she did better. Her skill at being a doctor is what everyone should demand. She talked on different approaches for my needs and they were all to my benefit. She was not out to haveme buy a package of goods, truth be told; she encouraged me NOT to. Her integrity along with her staff, is how you treat people you care for. Since last year Dr. Panday has been on my (1) list. One barber, one mechanic and one Dr .Panday. Medical knowledge, people skills and oh yea, save your money, you really don't need new glasses. You have someone else you would like me to see ? Forget about it ! Iv already booked her for next year. Go see for yourself.

The office funnels many people through as the waiting rooms are full and there are waits between each process. Took about 90 minutes start to finish. Probably more efficient for the office but not for the patient.
