A long-time patient with Dr. Crenshaw, I needed to have some eye pain checked out and was grateful to get an appointment with Dr. Belani that matched my work schedule. After discussing my symptoms and examining my eyes, she pinpointed the problem and advised me on what to do. I was so relieved and appreciative! She too is a good listener, explains things clearly, and has a wonderful manner about her. Today I took a work friend to see her and my friend was so encouraged and impressed. Thank you!

Dr. Belani was highly recommended to me by Dr. Crenshaw, who I have the utmost confidence; and this recommendation was supported confidently by my retina specialist Dr. Barazi. Dr. Belani examined my eyes, and followed the cataracts every 6 months. She eventually determined the time was appropriate for surgery and provided me with all the options available for vision correction and operation techniques. I made the selections and she did a super job of surgery. Super job !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best experience I have had in 75 years with any medical professional. Dr. Belani's expertise, professionalism, interest, compassion and kindness are beyond compare. My recent cataract surgery on both eyes went flawlessly. I approached this surgery with skepticism but Dr. Belani soon assuaged my fears. She is an outstanding surgeon and person. Her office staff is very professional. Everything from pre to post surgery was explained to me in detail, even before I had a chance to ask.

Dr. Belani performed cataract surgery for me. I couldn't have asked for a nicer, more professional doctor. I had issues with high blood pressure readings just before the surgery, but she was able to go ahead with the procedure and keep me calm. I would definitely recommend her to anyone of my family or friends seeking an excellent doctor.
