Dear Dr. Gupta,
I want to thank you and your outstanding staff for the professionalism and kindness that you showed to my mother and I throughout her surgery experience. I am truly grateful for your patience and compassion. You and your staff have gone above and beyond “the call of duty”. I feel blessed to have such great positive people in my mom’s life when she really needed them. Your kindness, compassion, and communication skills are the basic foundation for the positive experience that my mother and I experienced.C.S.

Happy with Dr. Gupta. I know I am in good hands.
I have had my second eye operated on for cataracts by Dr. Shalu Gupta who also did the first eye. Thank you for the gift of sight. Between cataracts and the problem of astigmatism I had fears of driving and doing normal shopping in the store. I am impressed by the care I received by her and her staff in Long Beach. I had Dr. Gupta fully explain the procedure and what happens during the recovery time. All of the options were explained to me and all of my questions answered. I cannot do anything but hold Dr. Gupta in my highest regards.Gary Kuepper
