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.

your billing department need help ,I was billed on my second out patient eye surgery and had to call three times plus had United Health Care handle it.
June 13, 2022
It would be easier if we didn't use the potential phone number. I don't answer it when they I see some potential 'cause all the sales talk and all the scams. If you would say it's PH calling I would've answered the first time you called.
June 13, 2022

After our former ophthalmologist retired, we chose Dr. Dudeja based on some friends' recommendations. We could not be more pleased with the way they treat us. I have several eye conditions that need the treatment of an ophthalmologist. Dr. Dudeja spent a considerable amount of time with me discussing my conditions and giving me excellent advice that will help me plan for next year when I need to get new glasses. Also, hep put me at ease regarding the cataract in my good (left) eye. I truly appreciate my meeting with Dr. Dudeja yesterday and would heartily recommend him to anyone who needs an ophthalmologist.

October 04, 2021
They need to improve their dates for getting an appointment sooner, instead of 2 months.
October 04, 2021
excellent
October 04, 2021
I just would like to say that I missed the first option to be able to comment on him. He's wonderful. He's been examine my eyes now, for about 5 or 6 years. I'd want to go to anybody else. He's wonderful, he spends time with me and I really do like the care that I get some him. The only problem is it's very difficult to get him to make an appointment at the office that I went, that I saw him in because he's another location, so I had to wait like 3 months, maybe even longer than that, to see him. That's the only problem I have. He is better off if it's one location, and then I, I, I know, I'd have to go down to, I guess it's Downy, it's where he's at also. So that's the only problem I have that I had to wait too long to see him, but he's wonderful. He is a very good doctor. Thank you.
