Self-verified patient of Dr. Prashanth N Vallabhanath - Posted on May 22nd, 2015
I have to see an ophthalmologist once a year to manage my eye health, and every year for 6 years I have made an appointment with a new doctor because apparently, ophthalmologists in Portland almost ALL lack any bedside manner or compassion. Left so many eye doctors crying... not for what they said, but HOW they said it. Dr. PV is my new FAVORITE doctor and I plan to see him every year now. He has excellent bedside manner, seems to be very knowledgeable, and spends a good amount of time discussing concerns and other things. He is the first ophthalmologist I have met after years of searching that I really feel comfortable with, and that seems to know his stuff. Highly recommend
