Excellent professional doctor and friendly staff. I highly recommend Dr. Mehkri. My son got shot with a paint ball on one of his eyes I thought he would loose his sight but Praise God my son can see 20/20 after the surgery. God is awesome!

This was my first visit and I was a little nervous but staff was great. The process from my intake to seeing the doctor was quite smooth. I had heard great things about this doctor and when I saw all his degrees and accomplishments (17) beautifully framed in the hall and more in the examining room, I was amazed at how intelligent and learned this doctor was. I was able to see and experience the wonderful treatment this doctor employs toward his patients. He is now my family eye doctor.

Great ophthalmologist. Definitely recommend. One of the best in the state.

I highly recommend Dr Mehkri! He has been seeing my son since he was 2 years old. That's when I first noticed my son's eye would turn in. I took him to our family doctor that told me the bridge of his nose was making his eye turn in. I still felt something was wrong and asked for a referral to an eye doctor. That Eye Dr referred us to Dr Mehkri. Dr Mehkri told us that if I had waited my son would have been blind by the age of 5. He is now 8, After eye surgery My son has been doing outstanding!

Dr. Mehkri is incredibly conscientious and goes the extra mile to make sure his patients receive the best care. He helped me to find a diagnosis for a disease that several other specialists had disagreed on. He recommended blood tests and followed up to make sure I received the appropriate treatment. He showed more care and concern than any of the other doctors I consulted over the previous several months. Thanks to him I am well again. He is professional and sincere, an honorable MD.
in San Juan, TX |
Dr. Mehkri is an excellent doctor that truly cares about his patients and their well being. He provides his patients with information and directions to a fast recovery. I strongly recommend him to patients seeking good advise and professional eye care.
