Review for Dr. Emad Asham, MD

Never even got to see her. Because I have been a previous patient with a TDDC doctor in the Dallas area and moved to Houston she has to approve the change. Days later still waiting for the phone call that is never coming. Not impressed with this practice.

Review for Dr. Harshinie Amaratunge, MD

Dr dice performed surgery on my wrist after breaking it in a fall. He did an excellent job of repairing. Had to have pins and screws and have never had any pain or discomfort from them and it’s been four years. He also has excellent bedside manner. Would use him again, hopefully I will not have to.

Review for Dr. Anjali Kohli, MD

I picked Dr. Kovoor over others closer to home and work just because his reviews online were so stellar. I’m glad I did - the reviews held true. He took his time, made me feel like he cared, was kind, and addressed my concerns effectively. I highly recommend him.

Review for Dr. Leonard Chow, MD

I would recommend Dr. Cohen to anybody with absolutely NO hesitation. He is very professional, and his work is top notch. He corrected my strabismus and, now, instead of wearing "coke bottle glasses," I do not wear glasses at all, and my vision is 20/20. He is absolutely one of the best.

Review for Dr. Jeffrey Cohen, MD

Dr. Ihekweazu is a very compassionate & caring physician. He was conscientious of my time, yet very thorough with his explanation of the diagnosis, treatment plan and expected outcomes. You are more than a number in this office!

Review for Dr. Ugonna Ihekweazu, MD

He has done of great job of preserving the vision in my right eye. I would recommend Retina Consultants to anyone that has an eye problem. I've been treated there for over 10 years -- went from 20/100 to 20/40.

Review for Dr. Matthew Benz, MD

It's was great. I was really messed up and he fixed all my problems without having to get a poop bag. Everything went great and according to plan. I would highly recommend coming here even if you have to pay for parking and drive farther.
