Patient Comments (1)
in Wakefield, MA |
Dr. Athappilly is a brilliant and caring doctor. Her ability to diagnose and to act quickly literally saved my husbands eyesight. He had a complex diagnosis with multiple issues, and had been seen by many physicians before Dr Athappilly. All had mis- diagnosed what was actually happening and failed to act quickly enough. We thank God every day for Dr. Athappilly's insight and ability to correctly diagnose his situation and mobilize her team to act. She was continuously available to us.
