RVC Patient Testimonials

Roy H. Williams

President & CEO, Greater Oklahoma CIty Chamber


While no one neither anticipates nor looks forward to having surgery for a torn and detached retina, I can say I was completely satisfied with my experience with Dr. Shah and his staff in going thru the procedure. He was extremely responsive to my needs, did an outstanding procedure, and performed all of the follow-up to assure my complete recovery. Dr. Shah was very engaging, very flexible, very comprehensive and extremely courteous. I have no reservations about recommending his services.

E. Colangelo, M.D.


I have been a physician for more than fifty years. That opportunity has allowed me to participate in private practice, government medicine, academia, and medical research. It is rare to encounter physicians who are more dedicated to the best practice and patient care than Dr. Sandeep Shah. His professional and administrative staffs are similarly committed. I feel fortunate to be in the care of Dr. Shah and his staff for my formidable eye problems.

Jane Harbert


It is both an honor and of great comfort to be under the care of Dr. Sandeep Shah and his staff. Having been under the care of another retina specialist in Oklahoma City, I can only say how thankful I am to now be Dr. Shah's patient. Extremely solicitous, kind, thorough, and attentive to me as a patient, Dr. Shah and his staff ensure that I understand all aspects of the condition for which I am seeking treatment, provide exemplary, professional, and extremely sanitary (not always a given in my experience) service, and then take the time to set me at ease. Most highly recommended!

When faced with an unexpected surgery for a macular hole, I was extremely fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Shah. His manner was very responsive, knowledgeable, and kind. He was never tired of the endless questions and concerns I voiced and put me at ease right away. The surgery was extremely successful and thanks to his skill and professionalism my vision was restored. The staff in his office were extremely helpful and made a difference in my recovery. Summit Medical Center provided a very pleasant place to have the surgery done. Everyone there was professional and the surroundings were very relaxed and not crowded. The nurses provided the best care. Thank you Dr. Shah. I would recommend your services to anyone needing an Outstanding Retinal Surgeon.

Without injections in my eye, I would be blind. I am 64 years old and Dr. Sandeep Shah and his team have been treating me for more than 2 years. Dr. Shah has a very gentle touch and I have never felt any pain. His team is kind and considerate and I always know I am in good hands. They have my gratitude for their care and for coming to western Oklahoma and serving so many people in this area.

We think Dr. Phelps is the greatest!!! I am a 87 year old senior citizen. The thought of shots in the eye scared me a lot. Dr. Phelps is kind, thorough and gentle in all his dealings. We think he is the greatest and my vision is the best it has been in many years.

Dr. Brian Phelps, There aren’t sufficient words to tell you all how wonderful everyone has been to us! Dr. Phelps opened his office on a Saturday and waited for us to drive in from Western Oklahoma! I don’t know any other doctor that would do so! Everyone we have come in contact with has been absolutely wonderful. Dr. Phelps saved my eyesight….when I thought all was lost. Brooklyn, Americo and the entire staff have reached out and enfolded us in care and concern. There are simply no words to describe how we have been blessed by Dr. Phelps’ call and concern, not only for me but for my entire family. He is truly a man of God! We have been enriched so much by everyone and are truly better people by having Dr. Phelps and his staff bless us. I will sing his praise at every chance I can! Thank you all for everything and Dr. Phelps, thank you for being beside me through this whole process. We can never ever thank you enough

I want to express my gratitude for the excellent care you exhibited to me with my detached retina. You provided me information to allow me to make a choice between two procedures to repair my retina. Based on what you felt, with confidence, you could do for me, I chose the less invasive procedure and it worked perfectly for me. I felt as if you took personal interest in my case and I sincerely appreciate you doing the procedure after normal hours since it was an emergency situation. I also appreciate you taking time to not only tell me what my case involved, but you showed me pictures throughout the process. I also want to thank the staff for their professionalism and caring attitude. My wife is an RN and she has been very impressed with RVC. I will be referring anyone I know, who has sight issues, to you and RVC.

Every time I tell people about my detached retina and five tears, I tell them about my awesome experience at your office. From the time we called which was approximately 3:00 pm on a Friday before Easter weekend, to the time, two weeks later when I was released my experience may not be a 5 but a 10+. The people at the desk, assistant and the doctor were awesome. Complete explanation was made to myself and my inquisitive wife of the damage, procedure, healing process and follow up. And the doctor was simply amazing! That’s all I can say about that. He was awesome. Hope I never see you all under those circumstances again but I do want to say THANKS for the great care.

Dee Hines


Dr. Brian Phelps went above and beyond the call of duty for me. Doing my surgery, after hours and in his office. I would recommend him to anyone!! Great Guy and Doctor! Thanks.

I highly recommend Retina Vitreous Center and Dr. Phelps. The care and expertise he provided in an emergency situation was extraordinary. I could not have been any happier or satisfied with the service and care I received.

Barbara Boggs


Dr. Phelps is probably the kindest, most compassionate and thorough physician I have ever encountered. I met him by referral from my Ophthalmologist, for emergency treatment of a detached retina. His thoroughness and calm, professional manner made me feel comfortable and confident in an emergency situation. Dr. Phelps and his assistant Brooklyn answered all our questions, made sure my husband, as well as myself understood the importance of post surgery care. The follow-up attention I received was superior to any other surgery I’ve had. Every question or concern I had, was addressed quickly, completely and kindly. I have the greatest respect for Dr. Phelps and his staff. I recommend them highly

Barbara Pratt
