Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Purohit's office has cancelled and rescheduled multiple appointments for treatment, sometimes without even telling me. I need regular treatment for severe retina disease and am now several months late for vision saving treatment due to their cancellations. SEI seems unwilling or unable to provide medically necessary treatments in a timely manner to their patients at risk of imminent blindness. If you value your vision, health, time and money, find a different provider.

I have observed both my parents being treated for WMD by Dr. Purohit on many occasions. I am always impressed with his clear explanations and the time he takes to listen and answer questions. Unlike many doctors he takes the time to get up to speed on the patient's history before walking into the room. The appointments overall are very long and tiring, with vision testing, dilation, imaging, etc. but the whole staff makes it as pleasant as possible.

He was wonderful from day one! Very thorough. I do believe without his expertise that I would be without my ability to see right now.
