"Last year, Retina Eye Specialists helped diagnose
and preventatively heal a condition called Central Serous
Retinopathy in my left eye. I continue to be impressed
with their professionalism, humanity and follow-through.
Dr. Murthy and his team excel in explaining everything
along the way from procedure options to recovery guidelines
to follow-ups and monitoring. I never thought I would
say this about going to the doctor, but it is actually
a pleasure to visit this office - everyone is caring
and friendly. It's that personalization, conscientiousness
and education that Retina Eye Specialists always provide
that I highly appreciate. Under Dr. Murthy's care, his
team helped prevent potentially permanent damage to
my vision, and for that I am grateful."
