in Ridgewood, NY |
My experience was just horrific. Dr. Singh applied some numbing drops into my eyes and after ten minutes I was blind. I had drops put into my eyes by other eye doctors and never had such reaction. To add to it I got no consideration from the staff or the doctor himself who even made me feel bad because I was washing my eyes with cold water. He bluntly stated that if I am so sensitive he can't help me. On top of it I killed a cockroach in the small room used for peripheral testing! Horror!

He is very attentive and professional. He takes his time with you as a patient and has a very nice demeanor.
