I was very impressed with both staff and his skills. He was referred to me, not by another office, but by an individual who was examined and preferred him over others...he is geniune, knowledgeable and very informative.....

Dr. Nagarsheth is very professional and knowledgeable, and at the same time warm and personable. He explained everything clearly and ensured I understood everything, about the exam, the procedure, the expected and also possible effects, and the individual plan for follow-up. Dr. Nagarsheth performed two iridotomies - one on each eye - and they went extremely quickly and easily.
in Pottstown, PA |
Dr. Nagarsheth made me feel at ease by answering all my questions about my cataract surgery. He was very clear about the procedure. Doctor Nagarsheth made the recommendation to implant TORIC lenses and stints in both eyes to correct eye pressure do to glaucoma and to correct astigmatism in both eyes. My vision in my right eye is 20-25, in my left eye is 20-20 after surgery! I will need to use reading glasses, but no glasses for distance. Doctor Nagareheth's secretary/staff very he attentive.

great care. Dr. Nagarsheth has been great with my myriad of eye problems. Even came in on a sunday specifically to see me. Also, his scheduling coordinator Lisa W. has been wonderful about getting me in to see him as I have had to come in for unscheduled appointments very frequently.

Dr. Nagarsheth is very thorough with my examination and very personable. I would recommend him to others.

Dr. Nagarsheth is treating and following my glaucoma status. He is so warm and friendly, he seems like a family member. He also did a cataract operation for both me and my husband. We both found him to be very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. He is so easy to communicate with and puts you at ease very quickly. I would love to recommend him for both glaucoma and cataract treatment.

Dr Nahareth has provided me with the greatest care and he is unusually perceptive in detecting problems with my vision.
Reading, PA |
Dr.Nagarsheth has been taking care of my 89yr. father for the past 3 years and at every visit he would take the time to answer questions or concerns so that we understood the diagnosis and could make decisions concerning the course of treatment. He always treated my father with respect, patience and kindness even under the most challenging visits.
Reading, PA |
Dr. Nagarsheth was extremely professional, but was also down-to-earth, and explained all his findings in great detail. He also took sufficient time to perform a very thorough evaluation, and provide detailed recommendations. He is a very forthright, pleasant physician, who inspires a sense of trust. I would highly recommend him for evaluation, follow-up, surgery, and ongoing care.

Compassionate and knowledgeable .
Wyomissing, PA |
I am so fortunate to have found Dr. Nagarsheth for the care of my fathers glaucoma and cataract issues. I appreciate how respectful he is towards my father and the time he takes to explain the diagnoses and answer all questions no matter how many times he needs to repeat himself.
in Pottstown, PA |
I would highly recommend Dr. Nagarsheth for his excellent care, professionalism, patience with answering my questions and his personable qualities. I entered his office scared to death and with an absence of trust for any doctor since my favorite doctors are deceased. I came away with so much better understanding of my condition and total trust in the doctor.
