    I had Lasik with Dr.Chokshi last week and I am absolutely amazed at my results. As soon as I sat up from the surgery, my vision was already so much better than what it was just 30 minutes prior. I have worn glasses since the 2nd grade and have never really known what it is like to see without glasses or contacts. My vision just one day after was 20/15 in both eyes! Dr. Chokshi made me feel at ease about having Lasik and has a wonderful bedside manner. His office staff is amazing as well.

    I highly recommend Dr. Chokshi and his staff. He is very professional and understanding of what you're going through. He also called and checked on me the night I got home from surgery. I also thought he was something when he gave me his personal cell phone number to call him if I had any concerns or problems while the office was closed. I have never seen a Dr. hand out their personal number. What a caring and wonderful physician, and staff!!

    miracles happening everyday, I have been fortunate to witness thousands .I have worked in the field of ophthalmology for over 25 years. I have seen people's vision restored with both cataract surgery and laser vision correctiion. Yesterday Dr. Chokshi did laser vision correction on my daughter and now she too has experienced the miracle of vision correction! Dr. Chokshi is without a doubt the most skilled ophthalmic surgeon that I have seen! A kind, caring man with an incredible gift! Grateful!

    I had cataract surgery with Dr Chokshi last year and my results are phenominal. He recommended I go with the Laser assisted surgery and the Restor implant. Well I did and it's the best decision ever! I can see 20/20 distance and near. He is the best and his staff is awesome!

    He is very compassionate and professional. I have had problems with dry eyes for years, using drops for years with no success. He was the only one that tied my symptoms together and figured out that the problem was due to a medical problem. He did testing, lab work and discovered it was due to sjogrens syndrome. He referred me to a doctor that handles sjogrens and in the mean time treated my dryness with more than just a Band-Aid. I can't say enough wonderful things about him.
