in Niles, OH |
I was referred to Dr. Seetharaman when it was determined I needed cataract surgery for both my eyes. Dr. Seetharaman is very friendly and immediately puts you at ease. His credentials are impeccable and his bedside manner is nothing short of excellent. I felt like I was in good hands after my first visit and I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Seetharaman to anyone experiencing cataract issues or any other issues related to our eyes. His staff is very friendly and I love all of them.

Dr. Seetharaman is a friendly professional individual with exceptional knowledge and modern equipment. He demonstrated great consideration and personal care. Having had both eyes treated for multiple problems including cataracts, glaucoma and astigmatism I am extremely happy with the results I obtained. Thank You and all the personnel who cared for me at your office.

I had my cataracts removed in 2013. The main reason I would highly recommend Dr. S is that he takes the time to explain everything about the procedure and what to expect. He is so very personable that he removes all the doubts and fears you have about the surgery. I LOVE my new vision!!
in Cortland, OH |
I was seeing a different Ophthalmologist who decided to take me off the eye drops I was on to keep my eye pressure stable. I decided I needed to get a second opinion and went to see Dr. Seetharaman because he was highly recommended to me. Dr Seetharaman checked my pressure and although my right eye pressure wasn't bad, my left eye had spiked, so Dr immediately put me back on drops to get my pressure to stabilize. He is very knownledgable, and will take the time to expalin things to you if needed

Dr. Seetharaman is very thorough in his care. I wouldn't go to any other Ophthalmologist. He has taken very good care of my wife and myself. All of his employees take great care of us. We enjoy going into Dr. Seetharaman's office.

Dr Seetharaman is excellent and I am very happy with my vision after cataract surgery. The staff is very good also.
in Ravenna, OH |
My eye doctor sent me to Dr Seetharaman to evaluate my cataracts. Being in the medical profession I was very impressed with how friendly and knowledgeable the whole staff was and how patient Amanda and the Dr were in answering all of mine and my husbands questions. I also have glaucoma and post op my pressure was up so they gave me another drop and rechecked the next day. When I accidentally went to an appointment a day early instead of making me come back the next day they saw me that day.
in Warren, OH |
I would like to thank Dr. Seetharaman and his staff for a very highly professional job that they did on my cataract surgery. The were better than I could ever hope for. From start to finish they walked me through the whole procedure. You could not ask for a more professional staff. I would highly recommend him to any of my family members and friends.
Cortland, OH |
Took my stitch out after Cataract surgery and knowingly used a broken instrument which broke the stitch and caused my eye to ooze. He put a large bandage over my eye and told me to come back into his office in three hours. He blamed it on me, as he said I blinked. Because I could see when he removed the bandage, he was very happy! No remorse for what he did to me! Stay away from this doctor, as it could be you!
