Review of Dr. Kao

-

I needed a cyst removed from my eyelid that had grown back a 2nd time. It was a big, hard bump that was the first thing you saw when you looked at me. The first time it was removed I had a plastic surgeon do the procedure and he did a good job. When it came back I was heart-broken. My Ophthalmologist at Kaiser recommended that I have Dr. Anne Kao remove it this time. She is also an Ophthalmologist but specializes in eyelid related surgeries. She was patient and compassionate. She made an incision thru the crease in the eyelid and went in this way. There was NO PAIN. The numbing shot was the worst of it and honestly, she was skilled with that as well. She was determined to get all of the cyst so that it wouldn't come back and she took her time. Again, I felt nothing. In the end, it looks GREAT! You would never know I had this done.

Review of Dr. Francis

- in CA |

Dr. Francis has been an excellent clinician, and his surgical skills and judgement has been very good. The man knows his stuff. If you peel back all the patient emotional layer, this man is a physician you can trust. The support staff isn't my flavor (Pasadena), but Dr. Francis treats me like an intelligent adult. I'm very well read on my ocular conditions, and Dr. Francis and I can have dialogue. It's refreshing.

Review of Dr. Francis

-Huntington Beach, CA |

I left the Doheny Practice in Fountain Valley because of the last two specialists I saw., he was one. His expertise may be great, he may be a great technician, I don't know, but a physician he is not. I've spent my life in healthcare, and I've never felt less like a person than when I was with him, and Dr. Heilweil. Someone needs to get a message through....we are people, individuals, not computer screens, charts, and check books.

Review of Dr. Lam

- in Tucson, AZ |

Dr. Lam is one of those rare physicians who is truly concerned about her patients. She is highly trained. Dr. Lam explains in detail what the problem is and explains the options for treatment. She is very approachable and open to questions.

Review of Dr. Lu

- in Arcadia, CA |

he act very patient in the room. Once he got out, he tried to hurry and go. Gave me a bottle of free sample, my eyes were irritated when I use the eye drops. I look at the ingredients, there was preservative, which I already told him that I am allergic with. Very unhappy with this Doctor. And this is the top nation facility!
