    How was your appointment with Dr. Kandavel?

    Oct 18, 2021
    Dr. Kandeval is not only an amazingly brilliant doctor but he is one of the most incredible human beings. He volunteers all over the world, giving his time to give sight to those who would have no hope of being healed without him and his team. More than that…I suddenly developed sight issues in one eye over the weekend. I called his service to ask them to leave a message with the office on Monday morning asking to be seen as soon as possible. Within ten minutes Dr. Kandeval called me himself. This was a Sunday afternoon. I heard him check with his wife and then he asked me if I could meet him at his office in two hours! When was the last time your doctor was willing to leave his family to go into the office to help a patient? Unheard of! I simply cannot recommend this kind soul and incredibly talented doctor enough !!
