This was my first appointment with Dr. Gokhale. Due to having moved, I was referred by Dr. Vesselle. Dr. Gokhale took time to review my records and discuss previous, current and future issues regarding the health of my eyes.

Dr is excellent just can't keep on schedule. Maybe you should allow for more time for this Dr. to see his patients! Get rid of any preconceived ideas of how many patients a day the Dr. should see. My appointment was early afternoon and the Dr. looked harried but still took the time necessary to go over my issues. Great Dr. just overworked!!
