I brought my mom to see Dr. Murthy for a second opinion. We ended up having him do her surgery. This was the best decision ever because it went very well and now she is seeing. I commend Dr. Murthy for his caring beside manner and surgical skill.

I found Dr. Murthy through Cedars Sinai and he was the only retina specialist that they recommended. He was excellent in every way. Truly encompassed the qualities of a great doctor. Go see him.
