Testimonials

“Dr. Murali has been my ophthalmologist for 10 years or more. She diagnosed and referred me to surgery for a detached retina. Yesterday was the last post-surgery visit. Dr. Murali is excellent. She is very good at what she does. She is very busy, but she is present and an extremely talented professional. Even though she didn't do the surgery herself, she has been very active and has given great advice and helped me through. Dr. Murali has helped me get rid of my double vision as well. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”


“Dr. Sher is an excellent ophthalmologist and his staff is great. He is straightforward and offers good recommendations regarding your eye health and any concerns or issues. I have been going to this practice for several years now. The technician and Dr. Sher are almost always on time. The exam is thorough and I always feel I receive good advice. Dr. Sher is very knowledgeable and I feel very comfortable with his opinions.”


“Dr. Rubenfeld’s quick diagnosis of the optic nerve stroke in my left eye and the referral for a cardio workup quite possibly saved me from suffering a much more debilitating stroke. She saw immediately what an eye specialist in Phoenix had missed. She is a wonderful person and a great doctor.”


“Dr. Goyal addressed any questions and concerns I had. My PRK surgery to fix my poor vision was great and I never worried a bit. If I had any problem after surgery, Dr. Goyal advised me to call anytime. Great doctor!”


“Dr. Durant saved my eyesight twice! He has talent and exceptional people skills… I highly recommend him, he is the best of the best”


“I think Dr. Sher is one of the best eye doctors in this area and his quality of care is fabulous. He is very knowledgeable, professional and responsive. His bedside manner is great and treatment is extremely effective. The staff is also very friendly and helpful.”


“Dr. Stockenstrom is excellent – hands on start to finish, thorough, patient & very willing to inform. I felt very safe and well taken care of with him performing my PRK. I highly recommend him for all your vision needs.” 


“I've been seeing Dr. Rubenfeld since 1995 and would recommend her to anyone who needs an ophthalmologist. Besides her outstanding qualifications and experience, she is down-to-earth and incredibly respectful. She takes the time to explain things that are complicated and makes sure I understand. I've had cataract surgery, as well as some additional procedures, and all have been much easier than I expected.”


“I am a former patient of Dr. Sher’s (I think from 2007) and wanted to let you know that I am still telling people how great you all are and educating them about PRK. I work for United Healthcare now and just told a bunch of coworkers last night at dinner. And, I am still urging my brother to go for it (he lives in Portland). Thank you so much for the gift of sight!”


“Dear Dr. Goyal, you probably won’t remember me as I’ve only seen you once complaining of the misery of wearing RGP contact lenses when I have very dry eyes. I’d been told by three other eye docs that absolutely everything that can be done for dry eyes was already being provided for me. By the time I followed up on a suggestion from a friend that I see a Phillips doc, I was desperate. One week later, the difference I’m experiencing is just plain wonderful. The changes you made in medication and the tips on washing/compress techniques has me feeling so much more comfortable all day and during the night also. Each day there is more improvement! I can live with this now and, for the first time in a long time, I can concentrate on what I’m doing rather than always feeling preoccupied with my eyes. Thank you very much. If your practice is open to taking new patients, I’ll be switching over to you for total eye care… with great relief.”


“I have been seeing Dr. Durant for 20 years. He always makes me feel comfortable… he is very thorough and pleasant.”


“Dr. Goyal is a great eye doctor and gives me lots of time and attention. He is also very patient with my questions and answers them very thoroughly.”


“Dr. Stockenstrom is the best eye doc in town! He listens and chats about life with you.”


“Dr. Rubenfeld diagnosed my problem very quickly after not knowing what was wrong with my eyes for nearly 8 months. My follow-up visits have been very thorough and she is an excellent doctor.” 


“The level of care and attention I got during this process with Dr. Sher was extraordinary. I was informed of exactly what to expect before, during and after the 2 procedures (1 for each eye). Dr. Sher called me himself later in the day after each procedure to see how I was doing and answer any questions. The end result confirms this man's talent better than I possibly can: I had 20/100 vision going in, and I now have 20/15 vision. I'm constantly "showing off" my vision in the car, reading signs & license plates well before anyone else can make them out. I can't overstate how pleased I am with Dr. Sher, his staff and his organization.”


“Dr. Goyal is an outstanding doctor. His dedication to complete accuracy in my PRK procedure was evident. I am very glad to have found him.”


“Dr. Stockenstrom is an excellent eye Dr. He knows what he is talking about.”


“Dr. Marian Rubenfeld is an excellent doctor who is very caring and personable. I couldn’t be more pleased with my results; they far exceeded my expectations.”


“Dr. Sher has been wonderful to work with. I knew I wanted PRK at some point, so I had been working with him as an ophthalmologist for years. He explained the procedure thoroughly, but never pressured me to have it done before I was ready. Now that it's done, I'm thrilled with the results! He explains all the details, answers any and all questions, and is very available for follow-up concerns or questions!” 


“I had an appointment with Dr. Rubenfeld and it was an enjoyable experience. Now I can see why my good friend recommended her to me.”


“I had PRK done to both eyes, with great success. Dr. Sher and his staff are very knowledgeable and took great care of me during and after the treatment. I would definitely recommend him.”


“After reviewing LASIK providers on Angie's list, I decided to contact Dr. Sher's office for information. I received a very comprehensive packet and I scheduled the initial exam. All the staff members were very friendly and professional. Following a measure twice, cut once philosophy, I received two exams and then the consultation with Dr. Sher. He noted that since I was over 40, PRK would be better than LASIK and then told me that I really only needed surgery on one eye. When scheduling the surgery, they accommodated my need to get it done before the end of the year so my reimbursement account would cover it. Surgery went well and so did the follow-up exams. I am now free of glasses.”


“Dr. Murali is a very intelligent and very pleasant person. She explains things very thoroughly before the surgery. The whole clinic is a fantastic place both staff-wise and also in keeping up appointments.”


“Dr. Durant has been my eye doctor for a long time. The last visit was for a regular eye checkup. He is personable and explains things well. I would highly recommend him. His staff is very good.”


“Dr. Goyal is who I specifically see is in the Minneapolis office. He is very nice. He does extra tests that are not required, especially if he knows about your family history.”


“Dr. Towey is extremely thorough and I can count on her to check everything and take things seriously, and she is friendly. All of them are friendly really. The practice is very good. They explain things a lot, which I also like about them.”


“Dr. Trond Stockenstrom is not only highly intelligent, and competent, but he is also caring and kind with his patients – we are very happy that we (came for my teenage daughter who has a cornea-ulcer from contacts), were referred to him!”


“Dr. Rubenfeld I was referred to her by my endocrinologist. I saw her several times and then she said that we had it all stabilized and that I could probably see an eye doctor to have my eyes checked. I was having trouble again and I couldn't get her answering people to return my call. She was really good and I really liked her. If I have to I will go back to my endocrinologist and get a referral because I really liked her. She was very aware of my situation because I don't have a thyroid. She was very concerned about it and she did twice the tests that I've ever had done with my eyes before. I saw her for 4 or 5 years. She was very good. The office was friendly and nice. I was able to see her within 2 weeks.”


“Their exams are very thorough. Dr. Rubenfeld also looks after me because I have been having migraines in my eye. She strongly urged me to get back with my neurologist. When I couldn’t get in to see my neurologist, she called and got me an earlier appointment. She was also willing to write a letter to my insurance company to get my insurance company to cover the lenses that I needed and the frames that they normally wouldn’t cover. I have had a stroke and so, she really spends more time than an average eye doctor I have ever had. She is compassionate and can really get what I am going through. While doing an exam, she checks to see if anything has changed. I am crazy about her.”


“I have some medical issues that involve my eyes, so I have seen Dr. Stockenstrom once a month or 1.5 months for dry eye and things like that. It took a year for the treatment to work, but since then it has been great and he is a great doctor. I went in just for an eye examination for new glasses and the optometrist said something else is going on. He referred me to him and he was in the same group. He was conservative and tried different treatments.”


“Dr. Murali is very personable. She cares about you as a person. Is very thorough and asks all kinds of good questions in a direct and understandable way; she does not use lots of medical jargon.”


“I suddenly had really large floaters in my right eye and some flashing lights. Dr. Rubenfeld was able to see me the same day I called. The floaters were large, but not indicative of a torn retina, so that was a relief. Dr. Rubenfeld took her time and I never felt rushed even though I was fit into her busy schedule.”


“Dr. Rubenfeld has been my ophthalmologist for 10-15 years. I was recommended to her by an optometrist, and I have been seeing her every year for eye exams. It has always been a very satisfying experience.”


“Dr. Sher and the rest of the staff at Eye Care Associates have been a pleasure to deal with from my initial consultation in early 2005 to now, 7 years later. I can't say enough about how friendly everyone is and the eye doctors (including Dr. Sher) take as much time as necessary to answer every question and I feel that even basic eye exams are more thorough here than elsewhere. I went to Dr. Sher based on his reputation and experience. He is the only Dr. I know of that doesn't operate on both eyes at the same time and at first that was annoying, but I believe that the outcome is better doing the eyes at different times. Certainly with PRK it was the only reasonable approach given that the time to heal is longer (but the results are better) than with LASIK. I'll admit to being nervous when I had the surgery but I am so pleased with the results I can't recommend laser vision correction and Dr. Sher enough.”


“Dr. Durant has kept me seeing for many years and I trust he will enable me to see until I am 110! That’s 14 more years.”
