"In the face of a crisis as threatening and terrifying
as losing one's vision, a sense of safety, security,
and reassurance is an essential part of your care. Dr.
Murthy is not only an exceptionally skilled surgeon,
he's also an incredible doctor who provided the comfort
and friendship I needed during the most challenging
time of my life. Dr. Murthy treated me as a person,
not like a pair of eyeballs attached to a body. I truly
feel like part of the family with Dr. Murthy. I have
infinite trust of Dr. Murthy, not just with my eyesight,
but I would trust him with my life.
I continue to count my blessings that I found Dr. Murthy.
By some celestial guidance I managed to end up in his
office just in time to remediate my emergency with the
delicate art that he possesses. Dr. Murthy saved my
vision. But not only that, he also truly cared for me.
I cannot recommend Dr. Murthy enough. I love going to
see him! He made me feel comfortable in a condition
where comfort seemed impossible. He's the perfect person
for both critical surgery as well as regular eye care
