Patient Reviews
Mar 03, 2023
I have been a patient at this office for 6 years, and having seen ophthalmologists before, I can tell that Dr. Kanitkar is an excellent MD. He is very kind, listens to the problems one has, never felt rushed out no matter how late he might be running, and also an excellent diagnostician. Because of this, he is booked for at least 3 months, but for urgent cases, his office is always available. He is well supported by an excellent staff that his office has.
