The staff is courteous and helpful. They called to postpone my appointment which I have anxiously been waiting for to plan surgery. When the scheduler learned I was dismayed at her suggestion to postpone, she went out of her way to provide an earlier appointment.Upon arrival the greeter was very kind and helpful as I checked in. The same person went the extra mile to assist my checkout at the end because there were others also checking out.The young lady conducting my tests was proficient and gentle.And I have the greatest respect for Dr. Gupta and his brilliant knowledge and ability. I would not drive the extra miles if I did not hold him in high esteem.

I experienced loss of vision in one eye while driving quite close to Dr Gupta's office. He told me to come in immediately. His entire staff is incredibly professional, and very skilled but they have something that very very few medical practices have anymore: truly concerned for the person and true team work. They perform their tasks with expertise and efficiency AND make sure that the patient is truly cared for - genuine kind words, assurances, as well as keeping my husband informed who was in a waiting area.

Dr Gupta is an amazing doctor. He always considers the big picture when he is problem solving. He gathers lots of information through the exam and tests and then provides a clear summary of the situation and options to solve it. Although he is an excellent surgeon, he is quick to recommend colleagues he sees as more skilled at a particular procedure. I always feel like I am getting superior care with Dr Gupta.
