"Dr. Murthy saved my mother's vision. She had
severe retinal detachment/ tearing and Dr. Murthy was
able to perform a delicately complicated surgery to
save her vision and we as a family are much indebted
His bedside manners are impeccable and his surgical
skills are bar none the pinnacle amongst his peers.
Since my mother's surgery I have also become his patient
for the past 4 years. I entrust him with the care of
my eyes 100% and if Dr. Murthy's medical colleagues
are entrusting him with the care of their eyes and the
eye care of their mother, then that's the most powerful
statement I can make on behalf of Dr. Murthy."
