Dr. Bhullar is a perfect example of what the practice of medicine is all about,smart caring, compassionate, kind and thorough. I had an eye problem on the weekend and talked to him by phone and he opened his office and saw me that day taking time away from his family to treat me! He is top drawer and anyone looking for a terrific eye doctor look no further.

I was reassured that I was able to be seen within a day of being referred by my regular eye doctor and PCP. All of Dr. Bhullar's staff were very welcoming and friendly. They were thorough and efficient while examining my eyes and taking my information. Dr. Bhullar explained what had happened to my retina and what he needed to do to repair the tear in my retina. He explained what procedures needed to be done and how they would be accomplished.

Top notch. Dr. Bhullar is very professional, knowledgeable and easy to talk with and understand complicated situations. The staff is second to none.

in Fair Play, SC |
After suffering a retinal tear I was referred to Dr. Bhullar. He saw me immediately and his warm and compassionate staff helped me to feel at ease. He repaired my retina at that visit. Later that evening he called to check on me and made his cell available 24/7. I had two follow up appointments and was treated kindly and professionally. I believe he saved my vision. I would recommend him whole heartedly!

Recently I was diagnosed and treated by Dr. Bhullar for retina tears. I have been to other retina specialists in the past, however, my experience with Dr. Bhullar and the rest of the staff at Retina Treatment Center stands out and left me very impressed. Dr. Bhullar not only explained everything well, he answered all my questions and concerns without being rushed. His bedside manner during my treatment was respectful, kind and exemplary. My surgery and follow up care were excellent.
