Dr. Kuruvilla has a laidback, friendly bedside manner and patiently explains complicated conditions and gives plenty of time for discussion. I never felt rushed and always felt like he treated me with great respect. He also seems extremely knowledgeable, and is kind enough to work hard to minimize the cost of care where possible. I highly recommend Dr. K.

Dr Kuruvilla is a wonderful addition to the Mecklenburg Eye Associates. His bedside manner is top notch, always willing to send the time needed to thoroughly examine my eyes and then explain any and all findings in a patience friendly way so that everyone understands.He is friendly and outgoing, yet extremely knowledgeable and professional in his treatment of my retinopathy. He is also supported by a terrific staff of associates. I can't imagine going anywhere else for my eye care.
