Dr. Huang made me feel at ease and explained everything in layman's terms. He had a great "bedside manor" and my eye surgery couldn't have had a better outcome. I highly recommend this fantastic doctor. He's a true expert, professional and teacher to his patients.

Dr. Ahn and his PA explained my condition in great detail and answered all my questions. There was no pressure to proceed with surgery, although surgery was the likely choice for me. Dr. Ahn was clear about the risks involved, and that was important to me.

Dr. Krayy performed a total left knee replacement and to say the least, I couldn't be more satisfied with the outcome. I am currently only 46 years old and lived with chronic knee pain since high school. Dr. Krayy's professionalism during the whole process was second to none!
