    I love Dr. Sivalingam!!! I was scared I was losing my eyesight but once I met with Dr. Sivalingam I was confident that he could take care of my problem with surgery and it was a success. Dr. S calmed my fears, explained the procedure, showed me the computer xrays before, did my surgery and showed me the results after. I recommend him to everybody. He is an excellent doctor and surgeon. And the staff at his Wilmington office and Bala Cynwyd office were so nice that I loved them too!!

    I needed emergency laser surgery immediately. Mid-Atlantic scheduled me the same day and Dr. Sivalingam performed it successfully. The staff is competent , courteous and professional. I high ly recommend this practice and commend them for saving my sight.
