Dr. Murthy is terrific. I would recommend him to anyone needing to see a retina specialist. He really knows what he's doing and also has a way of helping me feel at ease during my appointments. I have had exams and procedures done by both Dr. Murthy and other retina doctors whom I saw when I lived elsewhere; and my experiences with Dr. Murthy have been much, much better than those with the other doctors. I have been seeing Dr. Murthy for eight years now and have full trust in his expertise when it comes to my retinas. Additionally, his office staff are always polite and professional.

Raghu C. Murthy, MD Although I had noticed a change in my vision about two years ago, my original ophthalmologist… (NOT Dr. Murthy)…initially missed the diagnosis of macular degeneration. After making several repeated complaints about my vision and visits to this same doctor, the correct diagnosis was “caught.” I was then referred to a retina specialist. This other doctor… (again, NOT Dr. Murthy), while technically qualified medically, was abrupt, impatient, and most unpleasant. A second opinion and physician was then in order. Looking online and reading numerous reviews by patients, I came across Dr. Murthy’s name, with so many positive reviews that I stopped reading them, and made an appointment. In addition to being more than well qualified medically, has an incredible combination of being warm, personable, and caring vis-à-vis the well being of his patients, which he successfully combines with great skill and professionalism. During my first several visits, spaced out monthly, I received injections (with near microscopic-sized needles) into my eyes, the idea of which caused me much more anxiety than I’d hoped to convey. Nonetheless, Dr. Murthy’s calm and positive attitude allayed at least some of it as he explained the procedure and the (minimal) aftercare well. He was so skillful in administering them that I was pleasantly surprised when they were completed, with no negative sequelae whatsoever. Dr. Murthy now follows all of my vision needs and I now have quarterly follow-up visits to have my condition monitored. Each and every time, both Dr. Murthy, as well as his office staff continue to deliver the same high quality of care. His office is very well organized and runs on time. Each staff member does his/her job well, and is pleasant and efficient in conducting screenings. I live in the approximate middle of Dr. Murthy’s two offices: one in Beverly Hills and the other in South Pasadena. Parking is provided in both areas. However, in Beverly Hills, there is paid garage parking or street parking with meters. In South Pasadena, there is an on-site parking lot right behind the office building. While I’ve probably already written enough, let me repeat that I can’t recommend Dr. Murthy (and his staff) highly enough. I, myself, worked as a registered nurse for 40+ years, as well as having been an instructor of R.N. students. During this time, I’ve met many, many physicians. Dr. Murthy, in all respects, is above-and-beyond exceptional.

Very satisfying, sound second opinion given. Hereafter, I will refuse to take Ozurdex and insist on continuing what you were treating me with prior to my stopping to go to you for treatment, because of my inability to travel the long distance to visit with you. You are agreat doctor, keep up the good work! Sree Rama Rao Garimella

Dr. Murthy is very caring and relies on lots of various technological examinations of my eyes. Every appointment QUICKLY runs me through several devices that check many aspects of my eye and retina. By the (quick!) time Dr. Murthy sees me in the exam room he has lots of information to scan and look for any trouble signs. He still does a complete and thorough examination himself. So I'm extremely confident that Dr. Murthy is keeping a very close eye on my eyes !!! Dr. Murthy is also very good at communicating and addressing fears and concerns. I met Dr. Murthy when my vision did something very strange at about 3:30am. I was given his office number by Cedars-Sinai and I called his office. He called me back within 20 minutes! (I think it was only 10 minutes.) He met me in his office in South Pasadena office very early - a couple hours before normal hours ! I called him at around 3:30 am and he saw me by 6:00 am !!! I have discussed many options with Dr. Murthy and he is that rare mix of very conservative (careful) but willing to do unusual things because he's got the extreme skills to be extraordinarily capable. My eyes are awesome ! Thank you Dr. Murthy !

I had been seen by a different retina specialist for my AMD. However, after one year of monthly injection, there was little improvement. Then I decided to switch over to Dr. Murthy. After Dr. Murthy gave me a complete eye exam, he explained to me thoroughly about my eye problems and treatment plan. He prescribed the perfect medications and vitamins for my eyes. After only two monthly injections into each eye, he confidently said no injections were needed. He continues to monitor my eyes regularly. It has been 6 months without injections, my vision continues to improve. Thank you, Dr. Murthy, for restoring my vision! Dr. Murthy is caring, friendly, and knowledgeable. He will take the time to answer all your questions. I highly recommend him!

An easy-going office where everything runs smoothly. Appointments always start on time, everyone is exceptionally nice, and never a hectic moment that leaves you feeling ignored. Dr. Murthy is highly competent and steers me to the best decisions for my diabetic retinopathy. I of course recommend this choice of doctor.

Hands down I would 100% recommend Dr. Murthy. I purposely waited to write my review post op. As of today, I am 30+ days post op and I can't thank Dr. Murthy enough. He is by far the best in the business. After I was diagnosed a molecular holes in my retina I did extensive research to find a specialist for retinas. I found Dr. Murthy and Thank God I did. I found that Dr. Murthy's front office was friendly right from the start and once in his office the professionalism from his staff was suburb! Once I met with Dr. Murthy he was kind, honest and made me feel important. He was extremely knowledgeable and not once did he make me feel rushed with questions that I had. After diagnosing me with a detached retina, he explained the procedure and suggested that surgery be performed that same day. I opted to wait an extra day just to process and put things in order and just like that I was in surgery the next morning. I followed up with him in his office the next morning, and again, he explain what I would be seeing as I healed. He explained everything to a T and not once did I feel concerned about the recovery since he had prepared me for it. I just had a follow up appointment on 11/12/21 and long and behold, the eye which he operated on I was seeing 20/20 while the other eye that he did not operate on was a line short of 20/20. I am so thankful for Dr. Murthy, his assistant Daisy and to to his entire team. They all made me feel comfortable and safe. Thank you!
