After my first visit with Dr. Shrestha today, I am thrilled that he is now my treating eye M.D. He is softspoken, very knowledgable, and inspires trust and confidence, plus has an excellent 'bedside manner'. I would highly recommend him to family and friends. I couldn't be happier with the care I received.
