Was over charged for an eye exam, the associate left in the middle of my exam bc she had a plane to catch. I told them I have dry eyes so they billed $$$ for having dry eyes but never gave me a prescription like restasis to help. The crappy thing is when I asked what my "diagnosis" is they said "dry eyes". I had to go to another Dr for meds and a diagnosis of Blepharitis. Don't waste your time going here.

After seeing 5 other doctors I went to see her about pain in my eyes. A nutrition Doc I had seen earlier had rid of about 50 % of the pain but the five eye docs did nothing but prescribe drugs. She handled the rest with a procedure done in house which opened up my tear ducts. She also spotted that I had very faint cataracts which none of the others mentioned even though I told them my vision was degrading. She did both eye surgeries and my vision is perfect. She is a fantastic doctor.

Wait time in office always an issue. But, the quality of care I have received is unsurpassed. A couple of times have questioned the copy of the bill I received that was sent to Medicare. However, I had 2 difficult cataract surgeries and they were both right on. Giving 4 stars because of the wait time.

Dr.Nanduri is truly an awesome doctor. She listens to you, and shows that she cares. I always feel in good hands when she treats me. I went to see her with an eye burn, and she took excellent care of my eye. She is among the few doctors I would recommend!

I have been using this practice since 2001. It has gotten huge and the priority seems to have shifted from eye care to profits. I have recently severed my relationship with this practice.

Dr. Nandouri is the eye surgeon that my doctor and his associates go to. She is in the forefront of research for new technology. When I was ready for Lasik 10 years ago, she advised me to wait 2 years for a new procedure that was then being proven as it would be better for my situation. She is personable, extremely knowledgeable, and highly qualified. I trust her and no other.
