Extremely knowledgeable and professional. Even though my appointment was squeezed into her already full schedule, she didn't rush. She explained everything in detail and answered all my questions.

Dr. K is a very smart, kind and capable doctor. I owe her so much, if it wasn’t for her determination to find out why my vision continued to decline I would have gone blind in one eye. She listened to all my concerns and was very empathetic of my situation. She originally was my second opinion doctor after working with another doctor. I trusted her and I am glad I did.

It was better then perfect! Things went so smoothly and my sight is perfect. I would recommend her to anyone contemplating having cataract surgery. I wish I had a third eye to do.

Dr. Kanagalingam has made an enormous difference in my vision and thereby in my life. After retinal detachment surgery (with a different doctor) I could hardly see with my left eye, and had terrible double-vision with a blurry ghost image to the left of the image from my good eye. I had cataract surgery with Dr. Kanagalingam several months later, and it was miraculous--the vision in my left eye was *enormously* improved, and I feel I can get my life back. The outcome far exceeded my expectations, and far exceeded the usual expectations for someone in my situation. She did an amazing job. She is also always kind and thoughtful in her manner; she listens and really explains what's going on. I have great trust in and respect for her, and recommend her most highly.

Apathetic to the point of negligence. You wait months to see her, wait hours in the office before seeing her, then she sees you for about 45 seconds and shoves you down the rest of the assembly line. She knows she's your only option in the area and it shows. Just take the extra time and find a doctor who cares, there are more options in Boston.
