My eye doctor wanted and opinion on a possible threat to my sight in one eye and recommended me to NJRetina. Dr. Desai went through the procedure and informed me that my diabetic conditon has caused some minor issues with my eyes but nothing that requires action at this time. Made me feel welcome and kept me informed throughout the process.

Excellent care was given. Detached retina is very scary. I feel I had the best doctor for my care. Needless to say I continue to see Dr.Desai and I’m extremely satisfied!

The entire staff at n j retina associates was curious and competent. Doctor Desai Performed a detailed examination of both retinas, especially the specific areas repaired over twenty years ago, and said that everything seemed to be still intact and that there was no reason to be immediately concerned.
