Joliet, IL |
I recently had my appointment with Dr. Singh and I have to say that it was a great experience for me. He was very efficient and explained everything to me and made sure that I understood what he was saying. He is so easy to talk to and answered my questions. His staff is also excellent - very pleasant and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend Dr. Singh to anyone.

Dr. Singh took time to listen to my problems. He told me to wait on the cataract surgery while we worked on my dry eyes and it was the right advice. After treating my dry eyes, he fixed my cataracts. I could see so much better. Before, i could barely see out of my driveway. afterwards, i was seein the barn 2 miles away. What a miracle. He is a great doctor!
