One of my friends recommended Dr. Kansal for cataract surgery with a bifocal implant. I see great at distance and up close now without any glasses.

Dr. Kansal did my droopy eyelid surgery with great results and his staff was able to confirm with my insurance in advance that they would cover it.

He’s professional and cares for his patients I recommend him I have seen GI doctors at KU med center and I think doctor Johnson is a step ahead of them. He was also my fathers doctor and treated him with respect even though he had liver problems because he was a acholic

Review for Dr. Michael Matteucci Sr, MD

Dr. Herrenbruck replaced my left knee. Went in for surgery on Friday and home by Sunday. Nurses and physical therapists had me prepared to go. They also taught my husband how to care for me without doing everything for me. Great Doctor, outstanding staff and facilities.

Review for Dr. Todd Herrenbruck, MD

I had cataract surgery by another doctor and afterwards I wasn't able to see well because of swelling in the cornea. Doctor kansal performed a cornea transplant which brought my vision back to normal.

Review for Dr. Sukesh Kansal, MD

He does not seem to care that being a poor listener can lead to wrong diagnoses. Accused me of causing my ear pain when I did not do what he said. Failed to recognize an obvious middle ear infection. I went to another town and got appropriate treatment.

Review for Dr. Sukesh Kansal, MD

My right upper eyelid was drooping. Dr kansal told me that the muscle in the eyelid had become weak and needed to be strengthened. After surgery my eyelids are now even again like they used to be.

Review for Dr. Sukesh Kansal, MD

I was told that removing my cataract would not help my eye sight because of retina problems. I went to see Dr kansal and he told me that it could definitely improve than where it had been. He did a great job on my cataract surgery and i see a lot better and feel comfortable driving again.

You can't find a better Ophthalmologist than Dr. Gary Weiner. He figure things out that no one else can. He is well worth the wait.

I had botox by Dr kansal. Love the way my eyebrows look with it.

Salina - May 12 2018

Review for Dr. Sukesh Kansal, MD

The lady with the short bronze hair that sits on the left is rude to patients. And should be fired. She talks down to patients. Who works as a receptionist and isn't kind to people? Also they are out of date. And don't use electronic health records. That's just asking for problems.

Dr kansal removed cataracts from eyes and placed a bifocal implant so i can see near and far without glasses. He put a drain in the eyes at the same time so i don't have to use drops for glaucoma. Great.

Review for Dr. Sukesh Kansal, MD

Dr Grauerholz just effectively chased my mother out of his office, after doig his best to scare her out of a much-needed knee surgery. Apparently, in his eyes, because she's overweight, she doesn't deserve decent care.

Dr. Does show up till after 10:00. Leaving patients waiting for over 2 hours. Then only spends 5 minutes with them. Very slow and disorganized office.

Review for Dr. Patrick Lucaci, DDS

Dr. Kansal has an outer and inner waiting room because he over-schedules patients. We had to wait over two hours for my mother's 5-minute procedure. Long waits seem to be the norm.

Best orthopedic surgeon ever! Very good bedside manner.

Review for Dr. Todd Herrenbruck, MD

If you smoke, you're screwed here. He'll gladly take your money, then lecture you about how bad smoking is. Captain Obvious. Doesn't take medical school to do that. Completely ineffective as a physician.

in Salina, KS - Apr 05 2017

Review for Dr. Mark Bell, MD

Maybe he would have been helpful, had he taken the time to listen to me. Left his office very unsure of everything. Make sure you have papers with past diagnosis with you.
