Appreciate her professionalism and expertise - couldn't ask for a better doctor / surgeon / specialist.

All experiences with this doctor have been very good. This is a yearly visit to check on my cornea transplant. Some of these questions do not apply to my visit.

The wait time in the office was 50 minutes beyond the appointment time. This is too long a wait.

Dr Dahliwahl is the finest physician, I am always happy for her expertise

August 28, 2017

I love Dr. Dhaliwal and her staff is wonderful. They care and they show that they care. They're very efficient and well-trained. Her "fellows" are outstanding, one having put me on medication (Xiidra) that saved my life. I love watching her teach them her wisdom and kindness, hoping it passes on to them and their future care of patients.

The wait time was very long. I waited a half hour to be taken back for the pre-examination tests and then waited another half hour to see the doctor. In another state where I used to live the board at the reception desk showed you if the doctor was on time or how far behind schedule so that you could leave and come back. I think this practice showed respect for the patient's time and schedule.

This was the best medical care I've ever received. Everyone was extremely knowledgeable.
