Dr Kansal did my cataract surgery on both eyes and I am recommending him to my family and friends.I have no need for reading glasses.My vision has improved beyond my wildest dreams.
in Dallas, TX |
Dr Kansal performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes more than a year ago and the procedure was painless and recovery was brief. I am very happy with the results because this has changed my vision and I am able to see very clearly. He also put plugs for dry eyes in both eyes and this has worked very well too. Dr Kansal has a calm professional approach to his patients and he takes careful attention and time to give every detail satisfaction . I recommend him very highly.

I cannot speak more highly of any doctor! He is totally professional in every way. He removed cataracts and put lens in. He went over every detail in great detail Everything went exactly as he said they would. i coud not be more pleased. Thank you Dr. Kansal. Vick Clesi

Dr. Kansal is an intelligent professional, personable and caring doctor with the ability to perform successful surgery. We did not go into surgery until he knew every detail about my eyes and what I was expecting the outcome to be. As a “senior citizen”, I really felt that his goal was to help me see the best I could. My cataract surgery was painless and my toric lenses enable me to see near and far without glasses as I chose to have “monovision”. I recommend Dr. Kansal !

Dr. Kansal is hands down the best Dr I have ever experienced. He is professional, warm and caring. He does not "rush" you through your exam and takes the time to explain everything throughout your exam. His office team is extremely helpful with exemplary customer service to help navigate the referrals and insurance. We live an hour away from his office and we all are happy to make that drive to Dr. Kansal.

He also performed a procedure to reiieve excess pressure in my eyes.which helps to combat Glaucoma. He is a very warm and caring doctor. Takes his time with his patients. and listens. He is extremely thourough in his followup care. The office staff is exceptional. I would totally recommend Dr. Kansal to family and friends.

Dr. Kansal just preformed cataract surgery on both of my eyes last June and July. I now have 20/20 vision and do not have to wear glasses to read. After over 50 years of wearing glasses I have been elated over the success of my surgery. Dr. Kansal is one of the nicest doctors I have ever known. He is kind and consider and above all is a skilled surgeon. I highly recommend this fine doctor. On top of his skill and ability as a surgeon, he runs a top-notched office with a fantastic staff.

My whole family sees Dr.Kansal. He fit me with astigmatism contacts, and now I don't need to wear glasses. He also did my dad's cataract surgery a few months ago. My dad decided on getting an upgraded lens, and now he sees great and doesn't need his glasses either! We both highly recommend Dr.Kansal.
