I had eye lid surgery with DrTaneja the first surgery did not turn out well, after months of discomfort Dr Taneja tried to correct the problem with no success, One year later i returned to him because my eye was in terrible pain, He recommended me to a friend Dr Jude Santiago but he had no knowledge how to correct this problem both doctors admitted they had little to no knowledge on reconstruction surgery of my left eye lid, i was referred to Dr Don Kikkawa of Shiley Eye Center in San Diego ,A brilliant doctor, but my financial situation was not good DrT discouraged me front going to Dr Kikkawa DrJude Santiago said his price was cheaper, I asked Dr Taneja if he had done any of this surgery he said no.On August 19 2014 i went into surgery with Dr Taneja and Dr Santiago Because of there lack of knowledge they caused great damage to my eye, after 6 months the situation was worst and i looked Grotesque. After surgery Dr Taneja could not be found ,and trying to contact him his staff at his Pasadena office was rude and uncaring i ended up at Hoag Memorial Hospital, six months after surgery the condition got worse And i had to contact the office of Dr Don Kikkawa for reconstructive eye surgery, within 3 days i had my surgery and was on my way to recovery. When i discover my vision was bad, Dr Kikkawa recommend Dr Granite, on October 2 2015 it was necessary to do another surgery,because of Dr Arvin Taneja and Dr Jude surgery they damaged my muscles, Dr Taneja has offered me money to shut up. And be quiet,today i am still in discomfort and i have Been told my eyes will never be normal again, Dr Taneja was often very abusive to me.
