Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Purohit "My practice philosophy revolves entirely around the patient. I believe that every patient should be treated as if they were a family member. I pride myself in providing only the highest quality and most ethical care for all of my patients. Despite having performed thousands of surgical cases, I make it a point to stay completely up to date on all aspects of retinal care by attending numerous professional meetings every year. Retinal surgery is a rapidly evolving field with new treatments for conditions that were untreatable only a few years ago. I want my patients to know that they will be able to benefit from these advances in retinal care. I also do my best to make sure that a patient leaves our office having all of their questions answered and fully confident in the quality of care they have received."

I would give less than a one if I could. Had 2 appointments for injections and had a terrible reaction both times.

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.
