The doctor is amazing but it's the process to get to him that is awful.
the care provided was exceptional... very attentive...
He's great.
I will recommend it to all
He had a nice demeanor and "bedside" manner. He was thorough and explained my condition well in a way i could understand. He answered all of my questions. He seemed like he sincerely cared about resolving my issue.
The doctor is amazing; the administrative procedures leave a lot to be desired.
I like these people a lot.
my support and follow up has been excellent.
He’s a good man
Dr. M is a physician's physician. He is empathetic, knowledgeable, and humble. He knows what he knows, acknowledges what he doesn't, and provides a rational treatment plan when there isn't a straightforward answer. I value this last part immensely. When one runs out of standard treatment options, it helps to have someone talk to me about what the most important goals of care are to me. From there, we were able to decide on a plan. The medical students, residents, and fellows who get to witness this are seeing what the highest standard of being a physician is.
I am satisfied.
Doctor M is the best.
He is an excellent doctor, and also very kind and engaging. He made sure that I was at ease and well informed. He explained the images to me which I really appreciated.
very happy to pass along my visits there
Dr. Mruthyunjaya was very professional and kind. He was very informative and I appreciated how concerned and caring he was about my condition.

Dr. M. is amazing he?s considerate, caring & listens to you very carefully.
I'm so thankful to be in Dr Mruthyunjaya's care.
Dr. Mruthyunjaya is competent and caring!

I have nothing but admiration for Dr. M!
Dr. Mruthyunjaya is a superlative physician, a caring human being, and an excellent communicator. I would give him an A++++++++++++

As patient I trusted their professionalism , Clinical expertise and compassion ( treated like family).
I have been a patient of Dr Mruthyunjaya for years. I had an Ozurdex injection in my eye. I felt no pain and had no irritation the following might. I really appreciated the attention to cleaning my eye in a way that did not create any irritation. Very good experience!
Was very pleased with the efficiency of this visit and was of course, pleased that this follow up visit revealed no worsening of my macular degeneration.

My experience from the first visit on was provided by a genuine, caring staff, allowing time for questions and inviting any clarity. Outstanding.
Dr Mruthyanjaya was fantastic. The doctor that provided screening for him could have directed her conversation more towards me because my sister has very limited cognitive ability. I thought by now she would have picked up on that.

Kind, clear, took time to get to know me a little, very good at explaining situation and next steps, very responsive on email post my appt (via My Health). Very good bedside manner
Dr. Mrthuyunjaya has been very good at his first visit over a year ago and this one to make sure we understand what is going on with my husband's vision, any changes in eye therapy and an easy fix for on a laser procedure that will help with my husband's blurriness.

I feel very privileged to have such a caring, skilled doctor.
Excellent in all respects to my procedure
Dr. Mruthyunjaya was fantastic. He was extremely personable and compassionate and clearly an expert in his field. It was totally worth the wait to see him.
I am now commenting on the doctor. He was very nice, and he gave me a quick overview of what I was experiencing and talked about some over the counter eye drops that might help. He also mentioned some vitamins that might help, and for what I don't know. He just mentioned that and that was it. Then I read in his report all these vitamins and I have no idea what they are for. I am not going to invest in this without knowing what they will really do for me. Also in his report, he repeatedly says to not smoke, he did not ask me if I smoke, which I did a long time ago, but don't do today. My eyes were really bothering me for two days after the stuff they put in my eye and we had have a fire in our fireplace for weeks and it dawned on me that could be "smokey" for my eyes, and my eyes are not currently a major concern for me. I resented reading a report that seems to go out to everyone and I have no control over what is written, whether it is correct or not.
Dr. Mruthyunjaya epitomizes the complete physician. He's wonderful.
The best.
this care provider is a Specialist whom I trust implicitly.
No mysteries from Dr. Mruthyunjaya. It addressed all my concerns.
One of the best doctors out there! Gave me his personal cell # in case of any emergency - Told me that he would follow up in 24 hours - Followed up in 18! Excellent care! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I am a MD & was aware of a problem with my macula. Dr. Mruthyunjaya's diagnosis & care was superb - I have a rare disease & his explanation & provision of an sciencetype article was extremely helpful. He was the epitome of the great clinician.
Very patient and informative.
Dr. Mruthyunjaya is everything one would want from a physician. He is a true physician's physician. His kind manner, thoroughness, compassion, and dedication is indeed, truly special.

Dr. M.. the most amazing doctor I have ever met
Dr. Mruthyunjaya is absolutely fantastic. He is bright, easy to speak with, caring, and thoughtful. I am so happy that I was referred to him and would not hesitate to send any of my family or friends to him for care.
No bad experience.
Dr. Mruthyunjaya is quite simply one of the best... ophthalmologists anywhere. He is also a genuinely nice person. That's why I came all the way from... to see him. And I will continue to do so.
Outstanding service provided by the doctor and assistants.
