"After watching my mother suffer through Macular Degeneration I was extremely scared and upset when I found out I had the same thing. It was recommended that I see Dr. Murthy. As the patient / doctor relationship has progressed, I have seen him almost monthly for the past year. I have been most impressed with his calm assurance that he would do everything to help me, as I have gone through this next stage of wet macular degeneration.

Dr. Murthy's office is equipped with the most recent state of the art equipment; his staff is polite, informative, efficient and compassionate. Dr. Murthy has always made me feel like I was his most important patient and explained in detail everything that would happen to me prior to receiving shots in the eye and the laser treatment. He has always spent as much time with me as I felt I needed in answering my questions.

I owe Dr. Murthy my sight, as I am now seeing 20/25 in my affected eye. Having this disease doesn’t scare me anymore and I have Dr. Murthy to thank for that!"
