Dr. Neil Atodaria, MD
Dr. Neil Atodaria is a native of Arizona and has spent most of his life in the Valley. Upon graduating from high school, he was accepted to college and medical school at the same time and earned a combined BS/MD degree in Ohio. After medical school, Dr. Atodaria spent a year pursuing research opportunities with the University of Arizona ophthalmology program. There, he began to cultivate his interest in glaucoma as well as his desire to help medically underserved populations. Part of his research included a vision screening program for children of the Tohono O'odham Nation in southern Arizona. During his subsequent ophthalmology residency at the University of Arizona, he held the distinguished position of Chief Resident. He pursued additional advanced training, completing a prestigious fellowship in glaucoma at the Moran Eye Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. Returning to the Valley was always a goal for Dr. Atodaria, and in 2005 he joined Barnet Dulaney Perkins Eye Center. He specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma and advanced technology cataract surgery. He serves patients in our Phoenix, Mesa, Sun City and Surprise locations. Dr. Atodaria is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery and the Phoenix Ophthalmological Society. In addition to providing care in our practice, Dr. Atodaria enjoys volunteering his time and expertise for the benefit of those who are less fortunate. He has worked with a local Native American tribe and performed cataract surgery in Ghana, West Africa. Soon, he will travel to India as part of a medical mission team. Outside of medicine, Dr. Atodaria enjoys the outdoors, sports and raising his two children.

in Buckeye, AZ |
I wouldn't recommend Dr. Atodaria based on my experience. He was assigned to me for cataract surgery and additionally, after meeting with him, for istent surgery for glaucoma. I found him to be arrogant when asked basic questions. My initial feeling was I need to go to someone else. I wish I'd listened to my intuition. I had the surgery performed by Dr. Atodaria and have had issues (pain in the eye) ever since. I definitely WILL NOT GO to him for my other eye.

Dr. Atodaria is an extremely patient doctor who takes the time to explain in layman's terms what glaucoma is and how it is affecting one's eyes. He welcomes questions, and provides clear, understandable answers. He is an extremely precise doctor who tries to make his patient's comfortable, even if they are like me -- squeamish about having someone work around one's eyes. Finally, he is proactive in addressing early serious symptoms recommending surgery if needed. Top-notch surgeon.
