AWESOME EXAM!! The office staff were friendly and I was called in within 10 minutes after checking in. Dr. Desai's assistant was pleasant and professional and Dr. Desai was easy to talk to and had reviewed my medical chart which was great. She was patient in explaining not just my treatment but everything she was doing during my exam. She prescribed eye drops and this is day 2 and the difference is such a relief! So glad I waited the 2 weeks for an appointment. Definitely worth it!
Thank you so much for such a positive review! It is greatly appreciated!

I received a very thorough eye exam from Dr. Desai and it was obvious that she was very knowledgeable and experienced. She seemed to care about my well being as a patient and gave me good advice on how I could improve my health and lifestyle. I would strongly recommend her!

I would not refer since she does not really focus on you or ask many pertinent questions. She was in and out of many rooms In between. She also didn't ask if I had any questions. It seemed more like she wanted to get me out of there and I had never seen an opthalmologist before so I had many concerns and questions that just went unanswered because I felt like her answers were short without explanation so left still feeling confused and uncertain with what is going on with my vision.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I am the Director of Marketing and Communications at Sabates Eye Centers and would love to talk to you further about your visit. Would you mind emailing me at stephaniek(at)sabateseye.com, or giving me a call at 913-671-3278
