To Our Valued Patients,

With the evolving situation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and under the guidelines of the Health Officer of the Alameda and Contra-Costa Counties, our offices are open to provide eye and vision care.

Please keep in mind that in order to maintain social distancing protocols and to limit further transmission of the virus, we will be working with a reduced staff and seeing a fewer number of patients as compared to our “normal” schedule. Priority will be given to the most urgent medical cases. We will be implementing a number of measures (including altered check-in/check-out procedures, limiting the number of patients in the office and waiting room, face covering for all persons, temperature screening, etc) that will change your experience in the office. In addition, we will be ramping up our already strict disinfection policies and we will continue to monitor and abide by all local, state and, federal guidelines. Please bear with us through this new reality as these changes are designed to protect you and our staff.

We hope to see you soon and appreciate your trust in us to continue to meet your eye care needs. Stay safe and stay healthy!

A rewarding, painless experience

I had a cataract removed from my left eye by Dr.Patel and he was wonderful. His staff performs their duties in a cheery, efficient manner and patient counselor Sylvia Petritsch thoroughly explained the procedure Dr.Patel performed and the fee for my surgery. I decided to go with the upgrade to laser and Sylvia explained what my out of pocket fee would be for the upgrade. I was apprehensive the day of my surgery but both the anesthesiologist and Dr.Patel met with me in the prep room prior to the surgery and I felt relaxed due to Dr.Patel's calming manner. The procedure was quick and painless and I didn't experience any complications afterwards. Dr.Patel and Turner Eye Institute Staff made my procedure a rewarding, painless experience and I will return next year for cataract removal surgery on my right eye.
