Specialties

Dr. Satish S Modi has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

A True Professional

I have been a patient with Dr. Modi since the early 1980's. He has been totally responsible for my eye care over the years (from astigmatism to cataract surgery). His ability to diagnose and treat my problems has been superior; I would hesitate to trust any other physician to care for my eyes.

I haven't found a more competent doctor in his field. He is excellent. I have had surgery twice under this doctor and the results were excellent. I have recommended friends to him.

Do not go to Dr. Modi

Dr. Modi's lack of professionalism is reflected in his poor bedside manner. He acts as if his time is worth more than that of the patient. Furthermore, after receiving LASIK treatment two years ago from Dr. Modi, he failed to diagnose the post-surgery complications that resulted in blurry vision in one eye. Luckily, he referred me to a better opthalmologist who quickly identified that Dr. Modi made an error in the initial corneal flap treatment. Avoid Dr. Modi at all cost.
