Dr. Mruthyunjaya's Care Philosophy

I am a retinal surgeon and eye cancer specialist. I take care of patients with very serious eye diseases such as eye cancers and complex diseases of the retina. Doctors refer patients to me if they have noticed something concerning about a patients eyes during an exam or in a test result. Every one of my patients teaches me something new. My patients come from different parts of the region state and country. I enjoy getting to know my patients and becoming part of each of my patients lives as they become part of mine. At the end of our time together my goal is to get my patients to know as much about their disease as I do.
