I had no clue, no symptoms to report about the narrow-angle glaucoma Sr. Singh spotted. I was rather anxious and upset. He did his best to explain what it was and why it needed to be addressed now. I felt very well taken care of.

I have been to many eye doctors. He is the best. I saw him at Ny Eye and used to wait hours to see him. H was one of the busiest doctors on the east coast. He decided to slow down and creat a boutique practice in Queens. I love his new office. My mother refuses to see anyone else. He operated on both of my parents.

Dr. Singh's behavior has deteriorated over the past year. He was rude, condescending, bored with the patient's questions and unwilling to even answer saying his answer will be too long. Even though he was to do a retina/fundus exam, which is standard routine on my earlier visits, in his moodiness he simply forgot. Terrible experience and treatment.

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!
