Dr. Dudeja credits his family with instilling a passion for medicine in him at an early age while growing up in India.  Dr. Dudeja describes ophthalmology as “one of the most rewarding specialties,” adding “being able to restore vision, the gratitude of patients and satisfaction it provides cannot be expressed in words.”  Ophthalmology, he says, requires “tech savvy,” which “allows for a good mix of medical and surgical services.

Dr. Dudeja belongs to Surgical Eye Expedition International, a nonprofit organization that provides volunteer ophthalmologic services to disadvantaged individuals worldwide. Married with children, he loves outdoor photography.

September 07, 2021
Dr. Dudeja was excellent as usual and his staff were professional and provided excellent customer service.
September 02, 2021
I just wanted to say that Dr. Dudeja explains things very well and makes patients feel very comfortable about the procedures. Thank you.
August 31, 2021
Dr. Dudeja was very... very good. His staff was excellent. Courtesy. Everything. I do recommend him highly.
August 30, 2021
Yes, you have done good job, and I am happy with that.
August 30, 2021
My prescription medicine was extremely expensive it was noted to the doctors the docs attention the doctor never responded
August 30, 2021
Very organized with the amount of people waiting to be seen.
August 25, 2021
The caring feeling I experience at each visit is so helpful in dealing with my eye concerns.
August 23, 2021
The doctor was very knowledgeable which reassured me with his diagnosis.
August 18, 2021
I have been always very impressed with all of the PH facilities. I had to use the orthopedic and the staff there at La Habra were wonderful. The doctors there are wonderful and I found that same experience there at the eye clinic here in La Habra. The only thing is that I guess you're so busy or they're so good is that it's hard to get an appointment soon after you have your first visit. I'd have to wait almost 2 months later before I can get my glasses. That's the only thing. Other than that, everything is positive about all of the PH facilities. Thank you very much.
August 18, 2021
I like this doctor and his job
August 17, 2021
Dr. D is extremely professional, respectful and knowledgeable. We are very pleased with all of his care. Would, and have, recommended him to others. Unfortunately we will be moving out of state and are very sad to not be returning. That being said my husband needs some follow up care and Dr. D immediately, on the spot, wrote up his report of our visit and the procedure that will need to be done when we find our new doctor. Thank you Dr. D!
August 17, 2021
I really felt safe there
August 16, 2021
I'm a little disappointed in having the provider arrive late to the appt.- about 20 minutes. I realize unforeseen events happen, and a simple word from the staff that dr. will be detained, or a brief apology from the dr. for his tardiness is all that is required, and would be considerate. I have other obligations also, and although I was not late, I was rushed and didn't intend to be!
August 16, 2021
Dr. DUDEJA listened to my concerns and gave me answers that I could understand. I truly appreciate the time that Dr. DUDEJA spent explaining my current health condition regarding my eyes. He is honest & straightforward.

June 23, 2021
I felt the staff was very slow. I was waiting to have an adjustment on my glasses and the girl was taking care of another customer. But she dragged it out completely, longer than was necessary. Talking about things that didn't matter. I felt it was rude and I would not recommend this office to anyone.
June 23, 2021
Excellent physician
June 23, 2021
There was no parking and three cars looking for a space. I saw one car leave and park next door, another park in a no parking area, and I waited 10 minutes for a space. Also, the waiting area in the hall is miserably hot.

May 04, 2021
I've alway had a positive experience. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. I usually have to wait a little bit especially since I had to fill out some more paperwork. I goes pretty fast, and I always bring a gook to read if I have to wat a little longer.
May 03, 2021
I love Dr. D. He took very good care of me. He knew I was afraid, because I have had a couple of bad procedures on my eyes, and he he reassured me, and just explained everything, and took every precaution so that I had no complications, whatsoever, and I'm very satisfied.
May 03, 2021
Dr Dudeja is very thorough and explained in a manner I would understand. The staff in front desk not to familiar with what I was there for, they gave me same papers to fill out I had filled out a few weeks prior and asked if I had driver when I was not going to be dialated. Seems like communication is lacking somewhere at the La Mirada office.
May 03, 2021
The Dr.explained everything about my surgery in detail that was easy for me to understand.

April 20, 2021
The doctor was excellent, he took the time to explain to both my wife and I, the procedure that I'll be having in about 3 weeks. And we both felt very comfortable with him, explain that they'll do one surgery and 3-4 weeks later they'll do the other eye. And he also explained that there was another type of procedure they could do but he recommended that I didn't need that. So he was very thorough. I've already recommended him to other people. Thank you very much and God bless
April 20, 2021

April 19, 2021
This is my first time seeing Dr. Deep. I was expecting my annual full eye exam. Eye exam was mostly on the current status of cataracts. No eye tests done to see if vision had changed from last year. Guess next year I need to be "more detailed" beyond saying "annual eye exam" when make appointment.
April 19, 2021
It was a very comfortable experience.
April 14, 2021
Good experience. Explained to them I had another appointment in an hour and they got me out in a timely manner.
April 13, 2021
Great doctor
April 06, 2021
Dr. Dudeja is a great guy, not only is he an excellent physician, but very approachable, very nice.
April 06, 2021
The staff and the people and the doctor we're very nice, very helpful, very knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable. The facilities was a little bit tacky. I don't know how long you've been in that - been in that building, but it it showed a lot of wear and it seems a little bit second rate to me. Parking was a real problem. Also very difficult in the pack and parking was full. That's the only comment I have at this moment. Thank you.
April 06, 2021
I appreciated staff willingness to accommodate my need to speechread due to my hearing impairment. Masks make it so difficult.
April 05, 2021
After seeing 3 previous doctors, I finally got a diagnosis for my problem, I'm extremely happy someone took the time to work with me and explain to me what was going on with eyes
April 05, 2021
The only complaint I have is the wait time between appointments. I needed to schedule a procedure and the only appointments available were 2 months away. My procedure wasn't considered urgent but for me since what I needed removed was below my eye felt as though it's not that important.
March 31, 2021

This doctor is my favorite, favorite eye doctor. I have a number of eye doctors because I've had complicated surgeries on my eyes. He is the one doctor that will sit and spend, if necessary, an entire 20 minutes listening to me and answering all my questions. The other ones to do not do this. He is especially kind and thoughtful and he's probably the best doctor you have.

Dr. Dudeja is personable and professional.
October 19, 2020
I've been noticing that ALL of PIH's "specialty" providers are taking much more longer to schedule an appointment. Some as far as 4 months out and this, in my opinion, is unacceptable considering one may be experiencing pain, or issues related to their condition.
