Red Bank, NJ |
I saw Dr. Collur for my secondary cataract at the suggestion of my optometrist. I was very pleased with the timeliness of getting an appointment (within 2 weeks), her office staff and her exam. She was very thorough and explained the procedure to me in depth. I would highly recommend her for eye surgeries both simple and complex.

I recommend Dr Surekha Collur highly. She preformed excellent catarack surgery on both my eyes, inserted a lens and iStent due to glaucoma, loss of vision. My eyes are healing wonderfully and I can see real good. She is always professional, patient in answering all my questions and prompt. I am so glad I went to her; I trust her completely. Amy, the Surgical Coordinator is super, kind and very helpful. Always got back to me with any concerns I had. Karilyn H

Dr. Surekha Collur is a very dedicated, caring, patient and a great doctor. I had my PRK surgery about 2 months ago. I was really nervous about the procedure; but everything went really smoothly and the results are fantastic – thanks to Dr. Collur. I am really happy that I chose her for this procedure as she has really good surgical skills. I would definitely recommend her to everyone. Thank you so much Dr. Collur!!

Dr Surekha Collur is time conscious, very methodical in her investigation, expresses herself in very precise words and advises you on the best options available. She literally runs in her office and so all her staff - not a minute is wasted, yours or theirs.

Dr, Collur is a caring and very informative Doctor. I had Cataracts and Glaucoma. She explained to me the procedures that were available. I had lenses and stents inserted. Previously, I wore bifocals, also drops in both eyes, now all I need are readers. (Drugstore). She is a very busy Doctor, but makes you feel like you are her only patient. I have recommended Dr. Collur to my friends and family. Thank you Doctor Collur.

I am a 52 year old woman who needed two cataract surgeries in each eye. I was very hesitant to have surgery because it was a mental issue for me. Dr. Collur's patience with me was so comforting. Post surgery, I am back to 20\20 vision with minimal recovey. Now I just need readers since I am getting older. I just want to thank Dr. Collur and her staff for truly excellent care and for always reassuring me that I am in the best hands. Thank you Dr. Collur for giving me my sight back!

I had made an appointment with Dr. Collur due to having double vision problems. She diagnosed me with cataracts , but also suggested I get a brain MRI due to to the symptoms closely being related to brain. Tumours! I followed her advice and got the scan done ! It was found that indeed I had three brain tumours in early stages ! Thank you for you diligence!! Great job and great doctor!!!!!!!!!
in Lincroft, NJ |
It was great, she explained procedure, and did a great job.
in Monroe Township, NJ |
As a result of recommendations from friends I saw Dr. Collur about problems in both eyes. Initially she gave me a very thorough exam, diagnosed my problem, explained everything to me in detail, paid attention, answered all my questions and never rushed me. She is not only a very skilled, compassionate doctor, her surgical skills and operative procedures were excellent and went far beyond my expectations. My vision is better than ever now, I am grateful and thank her for being so great.
Hazlet, NJ |
I have been a patient of Dr. Collur for over 10 years and have found her to be a caring and excellent doctor. I have a number of eye issues and she has addressed each one and kept them under control I recently had cataract surgery in both eyes and the care and results were excellent.
Have been going to Dr. Collur for regular checkups a number of years. Cataract in one eye had gotten very bad and I finally decided on surgery in both eyes. Everything went smoothly with no pain or discomfort. Long distance vision 20/20, still need non prescription reading glasses, which I knew beforehand. Dr. Collur is excellent doctor and surgeon. Would highly recommend. Also thanks to Amy, the surgery coordinator, who made everything run smoothly.

Ive been welding for almost 40 years in Oct . i couldnt see at all out of my right eye and was well past legally blind in my left. Its now Jan . and Im 20/20 in both eyes.

I have consulted with several Ophthalmologists in many countries, but never have I been so satisfied, as a patient, with Dr. Collur. Her professionalism, integrity, personal interaction and practical skills can only be lauded at the highest levels. I will have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Collur, not just to my family and friends, but to anyone seeking treatment.
in Matawan, NJ |
Dr. Collur is not only a superior opthomologist but she is also a very compassionate and engaging person. She makes you feel very secure in her care. Her reassurances makes whatever procedure she is doing for you much less of a worry. I endorse her as one of the best medical professionals I have encountered. Vincent Amato
