Testimonials

Its been around 20 years since you changed my world – for the better with your laser surgery. I was one of your earliest patients. I was legally blind before and had to crawl on the ground if for any reason I lost my thick, heavy glasses. Your surgery gave me confidence and a feeling of safety I had never known. I just wanted to speak my deep, deep gratitude to you. Over the years, I have seen numerous ophthalmologists for check-ups since I left Flagstaff. Everyone, to a person, has complimented your work. Thank you, Dr. Mahanti. You brought my world to life, and brought me into the world where I had once been hidden and invisible. Words are not enough, but all I have. May your kindness return to you ten times ten times ten.

Dr. Mahanti performed cataract surgery on both my eyes. I was barely able to see out of my left eye due to a very well-developed cataract. I was unable to drive and my peripheral vison was nonexistent. After the surgery, which was quick and totally painless, my vision and peripheral vision was completely restored; same for the right eye a week later. I was amazed. I would recommend Dr. Mahanti and his great staff to anyone. Very satisfied.

Needing cataract surgery? Dr. Mahanti is a consummate professional, excellent surgeon (confirmed by the retinal specialist I met with there) as well as an ophthalmologist with impeccable standards. His staff offers excellent and highly skilled care as well, going the extra mile so the patient obtains good results. I would heartily recommend Dr. Mahanti’s Eye and Laser Center to all those who are looking for competent eye care!

I am probably the only patient who has been looking forward to cataract surgery for most of my life. I have been beyond legally blind without my glasses for decades, and couldn’t wait to trade my old lenses for some new ones! I have been seeing Dr. Mahanti for many years, and when my retinal specialist told me he was one of the best in Arizona for cataract surgery, I was elated that I wouldn’t have to go to Phoenix. Every step of the process was explained to me in great detail, both by Dr. Mahanti and Colin, the magical math genius! The entire staff was friendly, courteous, and wonderful! The surgical procedure was painless, and was over in about 15 minutes. I couldn’t wait to take my patch off to see the results! Not wanting to wear glasses ever again, I chose the Symphony Extended Focal Length lenses, and was amazed with the results! Each lens was chosen with care and extensive calculations, to be the best for my eyes. Now I see clearly with 20/20 distance vision, and ~ 20/30 close vision. I could not be happier with the results! The world is a much brighter place for me now, and everything is in focus! I can’t thank Dr. Mahanti, and his team, enough, for giving me my vision back! My experience as a patient of Dr.Mahanti has been exemplary.

I wanted to write and compliment you and your team for the successful outcomes in my recent cataract surgeries.  I am very pleased with the results.  Your staff was terrific.  As you know, I am an attorney practicing law with Aspey, Watkins & Diesel, PLLC, (“AWD”) in Northern Arizona.  As such, my vision is very important in my law practice. Your skill and experience were very much appreciated.  Based on my experience at The Eye and Laser Center, I would not hesitate to recommend you to my family, friends, and lawyers and staff at AWD.  Thank you for your good work!

Starting with my first visit, the office staff was extremely competent and professional. Service was on time, quickly explained, and insurance questions answered with accuracy. But beyond professionalism, they were courteous, kind, and helpful. Every question was answered quickly and correctly. I felt as if I was the only patient in the office, while in fact many others patients were there. When taken to the care area I met Collin. I had already been told by friends who see Dr.Mahanti, to expect meeting this well educated, trained and caring professional. He made preliminary exams quick and easily understood. Upon meeting Dr. Mahanti I was immediately impressed with his knowledge, professionalism and caring attitude. He explained the exam, the recommended course of treatment, and all follow up care. Beyond being professional, he was personal, caring about me as an individual. He took time to answer all of my questions. Again, I felt like the only patient there. (While you may not be able to use this, he was the consummate gentleman – something this woman from Dallas really appreciates!) My subsequent procedures were successful, handled with care, and made me feel like the only patient on that day. Subsequent visits were the same. I have recommended Dr. Mahanti to all my family and friends. While I know a considerable number of friends who use his talents and services, they have all expressed the same reaction to his services and care.

Dr Mahanti’s skill and the way he runs his office is top notch. From the moment you enter the office you encounter friendly competence and professionalism. By the time you see Dr Mahanti the preparatory testing has all been efficiently performed so that Dr Mahanti can proceed with his analysis and other testing requiring his skill. All of this is done in a timely and competent manner. I recently had an eye issue which Dr, Mahanti correctly diagnosed, but wanted a second opinion. He referred me to an excellent specialist in Phoenix who agreed with the diagnosis. This points to the excellence and competence of Dr Mahanti. It speaks to me of the desire to be correct in treatment of patients and where an additional verification is useful, Dr Mahanti is humble enough to get another specialist to help in diagnosis. This is the kind of Dr I want watching over my health….a skilled competent Dr. who validates his treatment of patients when there is some uncertainty in what he sees. I feel very secure in Dr. Mahanti’s skill and integrity. I recommend Dr Mahanti’s practice to anyone seeking professional care and integrity in their treatment.

I needed emergency care while visiting in Flagstaff and was recommended to Dr. Robert Mahanti. I’m so grateful to this doctor that took me in on the spur of a moment and performed a laser procedure to close a torn retina. Although he had a waiting room full of patients, he was kind enough to realize that I was anxious and afraid and explained the urgency of my eye problem and assured me that he would help me right that moment. His office staff is wonderful; so caring and helpful! I appreciate and thank Dr. Mahanti and his staff SO much for their expertise and care.

I have been a patient ( as have my children) with Dr, Mahanti for nearly 20 years. I recently needed an appointment and I explained, I am a single mom with 4 kids and I work daily till 5:00pm. Dr. Mahanti and his staff stayed after hours to accommodate me. This was not a standard appointment. I had to actually have my eyes dilated and the exam was very detailed. Dr. Mahanti was patient, understanding, compassionate and truly made me feel like my business was a priority.

Thanks to Dr. Mahanti and his staff, I was able to be seen and not have to miss work. Everyone from the scheduler to the nurse treated me with the utmost respect. I cannot recommend this surgeon strongly enough. I wish all my other medical providers cared as much as this office does. A+
