Went in to get my eyes checked after I fell and got a doozer black eye with a large amount of swelling. Dr. Dhaliwal was kind, friendly and extremely thorough. He checked both eyes for signs of an orbital fracture and was excellent at explaining what and why he was checking things out. He will follow up in two weeks and I can’t thank him enough for explaining what symptoms I have to watch out for. I would highly recommend him and will definitely go back to him.
