I had a great outcome from my surgery and I am especially thankful that Dr. Bonsal gently podded me into realizing how time urgent it was for me to get my surgery. I was not expecting the detached retina diagnosis when I first went to see my optometrist about some light shadows in my field of vision. After being referred to Dr. Bosal, he reacted quickly and we had surgery that afternoon. Dr. Bonsal was very exacting in explaining all the treatment options and listing the advantages and risks of each procedure. He cited very specific outcome percentages and made sure I had a very good understanding of my choices. Iâm also confident that Dr. Bonsalâs surgical skills are top notch as all the independent support staff at the hospital referenced his great skill both before and after the procedure. After care was excellent as well, and I also underwent some quick lasering in the office as a preventative measure on my other eye.
Plainly said, Dr. Alok S. Bansal is amazing. He explains everything, is perfectly professional and friendly, really listens and asks questions, and genuinely makes you feel like your are visiting a friend. The staff are also wonderful, caring, and friendly. I never have felt like a client but rather am treated as a friend.
Extremely pleased with all aspects of Dr. Bansal and his office. They are professional, courteous and thorough. I researched Retina specialist and narrowed my selection to 3 retina specialist groups. I'm glad I got Dr. Bansal from the Retina Vitreous Associates Medical Group. He made me feel at ease and I was confident on Dr. Bansal's abilities. I had surgery for a detached retina and have recovered fully! Dr. Bansal went a step further than expected by performing a preventive proceedure on my good eye in his office. I would recommend him to my family and friends, which is the highest compliment I can offer.
I first saw Dr. Bansal on an emergency basis when I tore my retina. I can't say enough good things about the care I received, as well as Dr. Bansal's bedside manner. I needed laser surgery on an emergency basis and he explained everything to me so I wouldn't be nervous. He provided terrific follow-up care and was always available to answer my questions. My eye healed beautifully and I continue to see Dr. Bansal on an annual basis.
