To Our Valued Patients,

With the evolving situation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, effective immediately, we will be suspending all non-urgent eye care. Moreover, any non-emergent or elective surgery will also have to be postponed. We will continue to remain open for patients with urgent and emergent concerns only. It is important to us to keep these patients out of the emergency room so our healthcare heroes on the front lines can be available for the patients that need them the most.

Our staff will continue to answer calls and scheduling appointments to the best of their ability.  In addition, if appropriate, Dr Patel can be available for telemedicine visits via online video chat. If you would like to schedule a telemedicine appointment with Dr. Patel, please call our office first to determine eligibility and to obtain an appointment time. Instructions for how to connect to the telemedicine appointment will be given at that time.

We hope to see you back in our office in the not too distant future. Stay safe and stay healthy!

2009 Official LASIK Surgeon for the Golden State Warriors

Stephen Turner, M.D. was chosen as the official LASIK surgeon for the Golden State Warriors for the 2008-2009 NBA season. Many NBA players have LASIK surgery as it is a safe accurate procedure for correcting near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and astigmatism. It also allows a higher level of performance than cumbersome prescription goggles that can fog up and hamper peripheral vision. Most NBA players select LASIK rather than use contact lenses or glasses. High profile athletes around the world select LASIK surgery in order to compete at their highest level.
