Pranay Samanta (Google Review)
The experience was amazing at Narayana Nethralaya when I visited the hospital for my father’s cataract operation. The stuffs were cooperative, Dr Prasanth was very calm and caring to answer all our doubts. The only hiccup we faced during discharge as one of the counsellor was in leave, the management should have taken care in a better way the situation, we had to wait over 2 hrs for the discharge, Ms Selvi was very helpful though trying her best to handle the discharge and counseling department at the same time but the management should have acted better when any employet is in leave.

The counselor Selvi was very helpful. She explained everything very clearly. She is an asset to the institution. General hygiene ESPECIALLY in the toilet needs to improve a lot. The helper in the recovery room lacks common sense and hygiene. She reused the bedsheet and pillow cover. Thats disgusting. There are lots of mosquitoes everywhere. Overall good experience with Dr Prashanth, the counselor Selvi and the insurance person.

My father yesterday undergone a surgery and Dr Prasaanth was the Surgeon. Dr explained us the procedure well and made my father comfortable. He is quite happy. Counsellor and iPath also helped us with all the pre and post procedures. Only one concern is that i followed with counsellor to get the reporting time of the surgery day. It would be great if SMS also sent to the patient and guardian mobiles with the reporting time any other details. Overall we are happy.

Princia Dass (Google Review)
Though the technology has seen a tremendous improvement over the years, it’s always difficult to accept the fact that someone has to go through a procedure in eyes.. when a colleague recommended Narayana Nethralaya for a cataract I read the reviews online and found mostly positive notes about the place. After the procedure, can’t believe I am writing my first feedback on how helpful the staffs were and especially Dr Prashanth. Thank you and keep up the good work you are doing.. Cheers!
