How likely are you to recommend Dr. Athappilly?

(Select your rating)
I had been diagnosed as having a condition called NAION. Sometimes called an “eye stroke”. I woke up one morning with no sight in my left eye. Dr Athappilly was so kind, professional and accessible. She cant fix my eye, but she was very thorough, making sure that the diagnosis was correct, and that nothing was pressing on the artery behind my eye. One of the best drs I have ever been to.
