About Dr. Kelkar’s Eye Hospital
As we proudly enter into our 15th year of patient service, we look back with immense joy and satisfaction on our journey from just a small OPD cabin to a full fledged Eye Hospital having all facilities for patient eye care. This journey, although challenging and difficult has also been extremely satisfying for us.
We are also extremely grateful to the people of Thane for loving us and trusting us with their most precious organs – their eyes. This trust shown in our abilities, also bestows a great responsibility, which we will always strive to fulfill.
We are very happy to present our new website, so that patients can have access to all the relevant information about our Hospital, thus enabling them to connect with us and make informed decisions about availing our services.
We at Dr Kelkar’s Eye Hospital strongly believe in honest hard work with attention to detail, and a pursuit of quality over quantity in everything that we do. This is the bedrock of our work philosophy and it has given us excellent results with thousands of satisfied patients over the years.
Our Work Ethic
Both Dr Rahul and Dr Preeti Kelkar believe that when it comes to healthcare workers, the qualities of discipline, efficiency and empathy are a must.
All staff members are periodically trained and re-trained, to ensure that they carry out their duties correctly and efficiently.
They are also sensitised to the needs and anxieties of our patients, and taught to empathise with them, thus enhancing the quality of the care delivered.
