My visits with Dr. Petkar went very well. He took the time to show me what was going on with my eye. The diagnosis, the treatment, how long it would take to heal. What to expect. He was very thourugh. Dr. Petkar worked very well with his staff. His MA was very kind and explained what she was going to do and what to expect. I would recommend Dr. Petkar to anyone who needs a Retinal specialist! Thank you Fr. Petkar & Staff!

Dr. Petkar is a very knowledgable, confident, and compassionate provider. He carefully listened to my complaints and explained my diagnosis and treatment plan in a manner that was easy to understand. to me what I had and how it needed to be treated. I trust him and highly recommend him to all.

Dr Petkar was kind and compassionate. He took the time to listen to my complaints and explain to me what I had and how it needed to be treated. I heard many good things in the waiting room about him. I am glad to have such a nice doctor who was able to help my vision problems.

He does not wear gloves and I do not know if he washes his hands between patients. He is habitually late and does not apologize. He has poor communication skills and does not explain the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment options. He gave me a shot in my eye and he did it so fast it felt like a stab. It hurt so bad. I have had eye shots before by other doctors and it never hurt nearly this bad. He scares me and I do not trust him.
