I have been a patient of Dr. Murthy‘s for over two years. My experience with him and his office has been excellent. I noticed that the office is always beautiful and clean. The front desk and assistants are friendly and efficient. I never had to wait more than five minutes to be taken back and be seen. Dr. Murthy himself is extremely competent and intelligent.

Dr. Murthy was a third opinion on my vision problem. After careful examination, he was able to give me a proper diagnosis that made sense to me. I'm glad I went to see him.

I highly recommend Dr. Murthy. He is excellent. Takes time to answer any questions you have. Staff is very professional, friendly and courteous. They always follow up the next day with a phone call to ask how one is doing.
