I am quite satisfied with the doctor and the way she comfort the patient while operating for not being afraid of it. I will strongly suggest everyone who has this kind of problem.
Very experienced Doctor, before visiting her, I visited so many doctors but they were unable to cure my eye pressure problem but when I visited her she quickly gave me the solution and my problem was cured
She explained the problem in detail and prescribed two eye drops ***** **** **** ********* and relieved my eyes just in 3 days.
My father has eye problem so i went to dr shweta for eye checkup. She checked his eyes and explained nicely that he is having cataract and he need operation and explained other details that when can we do surgery and care and precaution we need to take care pre and post operation . Her nature and way of explain is very good . She is great doc and very good human being.
