I highly recommend Dr. Desai and NJ Retina Center. The staff and Dr. Desai are fantastic! Dr. Desai has already repaired my one retina and has been monitoring my other. I began to experience floaters in the monitored eye and promptly contacted the office and scheduled an appointment. Dr. Desai examined and determined that a repair was needed which was done the same visit. I feel very comfortable with her diagnosis' and extremely confident in her and know that I am receiving the best treatment for my condition.

Dr.Desai was lovely to deal with. She explained each step of what was happening, and what would happen moving forward. The office moves along well, only waiting we really did was for the drops to work. Overall a very good experience.

My exam and shot was done quickly and professionally. I hope to keep Doctor Mukkamala in the future.

Used doctor Mukkamala for a recent follow-up exam (Sep 21) after a retinal tear repair over a year ago. She was the doctor that first diagnosed my situation. She has a gentle touch and I would highly recommend. I prefer to see this great doctor rather than see a general eye specialist for my normal eye exam.
