"I went to see (excuse the pun) Dr. Singh for an evaluation for Lasik. He was extremely thorough, gentle and really really knolwedable. He discussed with me the risks and benefits on my case and really answered my questions (I am one of "those" patients) I am looking forward to getting my surgery on and being able to see clearly!"
"I took my dad in to Nevada Eye Physicians for an eye exam and found out he had cataracts. Dr Singh took the time to explain all the different lens options we had with cataract surgery. My dad chose to go with the multifocal lens. What a great decision that was! 1 day after the procedure all my dad would talk about; was that he could see the numbers on the dashboard and read his phone messages without glasses! Can't thank Dr Surjeet Singh enough! The procedure was quick, painless, and the downtime and recovery were an absolute breeze! I highly recommend this procedure to anyone who has cataracts! 5 STARS to Dr Singh, office and surgery center. It was an amazing experience from beginning to end!"
"I called in on a Saturday afternoon and got the answering service.I told her of my posible detached retina and within 5 minutes I get a call from Dr Singh, he had me come into the office which he opened for me to perform a few tests on my eye and discovered my retina was only torn, but still at strong risk of becoming detached. So now Dr. Singh calls a friend at Retina Consultants of Nevada who then opened his office at 7pm on Saturday and laser repaired my eye. That was a fine representation of real 5 star customer service. I could not have felt more cared for. Because of the level of care I received from Dr. Singh I am a patient for life."
"The second and third vists were shorter waits to be taken back but longer testing time. Dr. Singh was great at explaining my options and I look forward to my future visits as much as its possible to like going to any doctors office."
"I had LASIK done by Dr. Surjeet Singh a few weeks ago. The procedure itself was super easy and short. Dr. Singh is wonderful. He truly cares about his patients and really takes his time to explain options, expectations and after care follow up. He follows you closely after the procedure. You're in great hands. His staff is super friendly and helpful. They get you in and out of appointments quickly. The day after surgery my vision was nearly perfect. It's amazing to not have to rely on glasses anymore. I had such a great experience at Nevada Eye and Ear. I would recommend Dr. Singh to all my family and friends."
