Dr. Singh is one of the best medical care providers I have had the opportunity to meet in my lifetime. Not only is he a genuine, caring, considerate, and empathetic practitioner, but his depth of knowledge, and ability to share that knowledge with his patients in a way that insures understanding , is exceptional. He was efficient, yet patient. My case was unusual, and apparently presented him an opportunity to educate other residents/doctors on this particular condition. He respected my privacy, inquiring beforehand if I was comfortable sharing the exam space and results with them, and in my humble opinion, his instruction and guidance was delivered in a very professional and intuitive manner. These young men and women are VERY lucky to be trained by such an amazing doctor! Clearly, I was impressed with Dr. Singh in every way, and feel very blessed to have been cared for by him and his team at Cole Eye Institute! Feel free to share this feedback with him....he should know that his patients appreciate the quality of care he provides!
