Both DR Venugopal and his assistant nurse are wonderful always, he is the reason why I've stayed with your office over all these years. Dr V is always very attentive and takes time to review my sons chart and does not dismiss any concerns no matter how small they may be.

I feel this appointment was unnecessary. My child seen an optometrist who was recommending an ophthalmologist and we needed a referral. We paid a $25 copayment for a telephonic call that lasted about a minute long. The staff stated the provider just needed to document he spoke with parents but did not need any information from us.

Everything was great but filling out those questionnaires every year needs to go or be able to be done prior to the visit. It's the same questions every year they should be stored by now
