Very attentive and caring
First time visit and impressive. Clean quiet office, friendly staff. Minimal wait time. Associate Justine was very polite and did a couple of pre-exam scans. Dr. Belani is very professional, courteous and polite. She asked questions and also answered my questions. No rush to get me out of the room. Scheduled a visit later this year. Glad I found Dr. Belani and her staff. Highly recommended if she is not booked up.

Dr. Belani is the best! She's caring, thorough and willing to take the time to discuss any questions, concerns you may have. I am so happy with the results of my cataract surgery and would recommend her to everyone; in fact, I do whenever the topic of eye surgery comes up! You will be in good hands for all your eye care with Dr. Belani.

Yes I would. Dr. Belani did laser cataract surgery on both my eyes this month (December 2020). She did an excellent job, prior to the surgery, during and after the surgery. With one eye, I can see 20/20. I'm hoping to see 20/20 with the other eye as well. I would definitely recommend Dr. Belani.

The lenses in both my eyes were beginning to cloud. Dr. Belani replaced them. I now have 20/ 20 vision and am able to read without glasses and pass the driver's test. The procedure was without complication or problem. I am very pleased.

I have been seeing Dr. Belani for about 10 years. Just recently she removed the cataract from both of my eyes. Except for the fact that I was seeing better, it was as if nobody had been poking around in my eyes. No discomfort during or after and no unexpected incidents. Her staff did a wonderful job of explaining what I needed to do before/after the procedure and what to expect. We were all very pleased that I now have a 20/20 vision. Dr. Belani's examinations are thorough, her diagnosis is firm yet she does not rush the patient into making any immediate decision. The tone of her voice and manner easily puts the patient at ease. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a doctor that they would want to stay with and have peace of mind. Did I mention the staff at her office? They are all very pleasant, courteous, yet personal and caring with each patient.

When my long-term ophthalmologist concluded that I would need two cataract operations, I contacted her partner, Dr. Belani whose speciality is cataracts. She and her staff carefully explained the options (and costs), and after a most thorough examination we decided on a particular course of action. I presented a slight technical challenge, but Dr. Belani came up with an approach, cleared it with me, and we proceeded to the operation. Be warned: the eyedrop requirements, beginning before the surgery and continuing for a month after, are rigorous and can interfere with normal routines (but it's just eye drops). The post-operative visits went well (next day, next week, next month and more). One eye had a slight glitch, but Dr. Belani knew just what to do and things came out as predicted. My eyes are much better now, and I am happy to recommend Dr. Belani to anyone who asks.

From our first visit we knew we were in the right place. Doctors Crenshaw and Belani have throughout our visits and my wife’s cataract surgery impressed us as caring professionals. They and their staff, Karen and Tariq, have consistently taken their time with us and answered our questions. We will continue to be their patients and will refer others to their practice.
