I have been going to Dr. Athwal for about 5 years. Initially I began going for a second opinion and his explanation of my needs was far superior to my previous doctor. He performed that procedure on his lunch hour after fully explaining my need for that procedure. Recently he performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes. I am extremely happy with the outcome for each eye and his explanations prior to the surgery were, again, complete and answered any question I could possible have asked.

Excellent experience with Dr. Athwal. I had essentially lost my vision due to Diabetic complications and desperately needed cataract surgery. After the surgery and lens replacement, I could see extremely well again. It was expensive but worth it. I highly recommend this practice.
