"When what I thought was something caught in my
left eye turned out to be a torn retina, I was referred
to Dr.Murthy. He saw me on a moments notice, did an
incredibly in depth exam and evaluation, and scheduled
surgery for the following morning.
During the entire process, his ability to convey the
procedures, treatment, requirements for recovery, etc.
in "lay" terms was most helpful and encouraging.
He is open, friendly, personable, and knowledgeable
about his craft.
His staff is a reflection of his demeanor and professionalism,
and should anyone reading this be in need of vitreo-retinal
disease or surgical advise and/or evaluation, I recommend
Dr. Raghy Murthy highly."
