On my first visit the entire staff made me feel welcomed and relaxed. My initial examination by Dr. Sinha was efficient and professional, conveying confidence in her abilities and leaving no doubt that I would be well cared for before, during, and after the procedure. Over the course of my treatment, encompassing three months and multiple visits, she and her staff made every effort to ensure my experience went smoothly and was worry free.
Both my surgeries were conducted at the Bolduc Family Outpatient Center at Howard General Hospital where Dr. Sinha is affiliated. Its support staff and medical personnel were every bit as professional as Dr. Sinha and they seamlessly integrated with her to produce the best possible outcome I could have wished for: restored clarity of vision in both eyes.
As a result of my successful experience with Dr. Sinha and her staff, I would heartily recommend the services of Glaucoma Plus Eye Care to anyone in need of cataract surgery or treatment of other ocular ailments for which medical expertise is required.
I would like to comment not only on Dr. Sinha, but on her entire staff. It was a very pleasant experience. I was there to be tested for glaucoma. I never knew so many machines and tests existed. Before each test, her staff took the time to explain everything about the test; i.e. what is was for; what they would do; what would I feel; what were good results, etc. Then, when all the tests were completed, Dr. Sinah sat down with my wife and I and went over the results of each test, and answered all of our questions. There were no lectures, no guilt trips, no finger pointing, just very pleasant conversation. I could go on and on, but you get the point. I have already recommended her to some of our friends.

My recent experience in acquiring an eye care physician in Howard County turned out to be the best choice I could have ever made. Upon arriving at Glaucoma Plus Eyecare in Columbia, Maryland for my eye examination, I was cordially greeted directly by Dr. Anshu Sinha and her staff. I was escorted to the examination room promptly to find the room well appointed and quite impressive with new state of the art equipment and technology. After a few brief medical history questions, she began the examination which I found was the most professional and thorough eye examination I have ever received. Dr. Sinha is undoubtedly the most qualified knowledgeable and extremely professional ophthalmologist I have ever encountered. Dr. Sinha's approach with patience and resounding abilities left me with a quite comfortable experience and assured me I made the right choice! I can honestly recommend Dr. Sinha and her staff at Glaucoma Plus Eyecare to my friends, family and all of my contacts in life!!"
