Dr. P. is simply the best! Kind, caring, compassionate. The best bed side manner of any Doctor I've EVER had and I'm old! When I freak out and am convinced I'm going blind he calms me down and lets me know it's all going to be ok and reassures me I am not going blind LOL. If anybody can make...more

My experience with Dr. Porbandarwalla was excellent. Emergency retinal detachment surgery. Although extremely busy, his attention to detail, and memory of my case was excellent. Bedside manner is excellent, as is follow up. Highly recommended.
