My initial consult, two cataract surgeries and follow-up appointments could not possibly have been any better. Dr. Tandon's skillful expertise is matched by his warmth and genuine concern for his patiences. His explanations are thorough and reassuring. His staff maintains the same level of care and consideration. My hopeful expectations have been surpassed certainly in outcomes, but equally so in the process. I am very grateful to Dr. Tandon.

I had an excellent experience with cataract surgery with Dr. Tandon and his team. They have a "well oiled machine" in terms of their process, highly organized, efficient, great attention to detail, and everyone we met, including Dr. Tandon, was kind, personable, and friendly, as well as highly compentent.

Highly recommend Dr. Tandon and the staff at the Ohio State Havener Eye Institute. I have cataracts surgery on both of my eyes. Every step of the way from the beginning to the end has been outstanding. I didn't need to ask any questions since everything is explained thoroughly. Dr. Tandon is great, a balance of fast and thorough, I felt safe throughout my experience. I can see much better now that my cataracts is gone. Thank you Dr. Tandon and his efficient staff.

Hung – Aug 27, 2021
I got LASIK surgery with Dr. Tandon about a month ago and am so grateful for my new vision and of how amazing he was. Whenever we met I could tell he actually listened to me and addressed all of my concerns, no matter how silly they were. During surgery he was so comforting and mindful of how I was feeling, letting me know things were going great and to just “hold still” a little longer while the laser did it’s thing. The couple follow up appointments have also been wonderful! He’s so easy to talk to and I have always felt cared for by him and his staff, even when I know there are a bunch of other patients waiting to see him.

The experience for the patient was excellent. Good result and high marks for the nurses. The waiting time for the support person was not wonderful. The noise in the waiting room was unpleasant. High expectations based on previous cataract surgery with Dr. Tandon were exceeded. The nursing staff could not have been better. They were nice, knowledgeable, very friendly and good at their jobs. They made surgery close to pleasant. Thank you for caring so nicely.

There aren't many things more frightening than the idea of someone cutting open your eyeballs. But Dr. Tandon and his staff are superb at allaying that kind of anxiety. They're also highly skilled, and incredibly well organized and careful [example: another patient had the same first name as I, so there was a 'NAME ALERT' on my chart]. I worked in healthcare for years; most clinical settings are so slow they make 'island time' seem like rush hour. This place runs like precision clockwork. In addition, the physician and staff genuinely seem to enjoy what they do. I would recommend this facility, its wonderful staff, and Dr. Tandon to anyone.

I was highly satisfied with all aspects of my eye care! Dr. Tandon is "one of those doctors" you'll immediately like, respect, trust... His staff, both in the clinic and surgery center, were incredibly engaged, respectful, timely, helpful, caring. Most importantly, the surgical outcome far exceeded my expectations, better than described. Dr. Tandon is highly experienced and capable and I confidently recommend and OSU Eye and Ear Institute to anyone!

I was referred to Dr. Tandon by my eye care provider. He highly recommended Dr Tandon. My first exam with Dr. Tandon left me completely at ease with what was going to happen with the upcoming cataract removal procedure. I can't say enough about the professionalism of Dr. Tandon and the entire support team. Not only are they professional, they work as a team and make you feel like you are the only person in their care that day. That's pretty special. I highly recommend Dr. Tandon and his team.

The entire staff are professional, happy and upbeat from walking off the elevators until your last post-opt appointment. They are qualified, thorough with every single detail. They carefully explain every item without rushing or making you feel that it's rote to them. Truly extraordinary!!!! That kind of training and care has to come from the top, Dr Tandon himself. Again he is rushing from patient to patient but never late, never without a greeting that makes you feel he is really happy to see you. Not to mention I have asked many and everybody, I mean everybody, loves him. The kind of energy knowledge and care he shares with all make him a blessing to all whom he shares his skills. All these qualities make him the perfect surgeon to work for, have your eye surgery with, and to recommend.
