Great experience. Dr. Kaul takes care of my mother's macular. My mother was really worried she would lose her vision, but she's still seeing well thanks to Dr. Kaul's treatments.

Lawrence, MA location. Terrible experience, condescending and seemed unhappy in her work. I would not recommend if you are looking for patient physician willing to answer your questions.
