Pleasant experience. consistently on time, very little waiting. Staff efficient and especially friendly. Some remember my name after a couple of visits. I found parking at the facility convenient and my vehicle was safe, however the price was unpleasant.

Dr Cu, his technicians and staff were all friendly and extremely professional for my cataract surgery. The procedure and recovery was just as explained. My vision after the surgery went from 20/400 to 20/20 with no problems. I highly recommend him if you require an Ophthalmologist.

Dr. Cu's office is very professional. I am always seen promptly. He is explains things thoroughly and makes sure you understand what is going on. He did a cataract surgery for me and the results were astonishing. Even he was surprised that I could read and did not need glasses. Very clean, well organized environment with competent, highly trained and gentle staff members. I have no reservations in recommending Dr. Cu and giving him the highest rating.

Dr. Cu is an excellent doctor who treats his patients with utmost respect and compassion. I feel he listens and cares but at the same time keeps his office running efficiently. This goes for the entire staff from reception to dr. He cares for both my elderly mother and I and has performed successful surgery on my mom. It's always a pleasure to go see Dr. Cu.

I was referred to Dr. Cu-Unjieng by my optometrist for cataracts. I'm so glad I was! Dr. Cu is extremely knowledgeable, competent and calm. He explained the entire procedure, and answered my questions. He is straightforward about the procedure, and instills a huge sense of confidence. My procedure was quick and painless, and the followup visits were handled in an efficient manner. I give Dr. Cu my highest recommendation if you're considering cataract surgery.

I’d give Dr CU a zero if possible. To keep this brief I’ll use bullet points to list his ineptitude. 1) charged me an additional $50 to get a copy of my prescription. In 45 years of wearing glasses, this has never been a requirement at any doctor previously 2) The said RX they wrote me is dramatically WRONG. I can’t see 2 feet in front of me- these are lenses for distance! 3) Staff assured me it wasn’t their fault & the RX was correct. I know this not to be true as RX sunglasses are fine.

Dr Cu-Unjieng provided cararact surgery for both my right and left eyes. His meticulous approach to my care created my complete confidence in his ability to correct my vision successfully. As I have been wearing glasses for near-sighted vision since the age of 9, I am enjoying a whole new visual world. Dr Cu takes great care to support a knowledgeable staff, as well.

Dr. Cu, as he is known, aims to improve the quality of life for his patients. I experienced that when he removed cataracts that had severely dimmed my vision and color perception. In the clinic, he is caring and careful. He has had helping him a clinical assistant, Elizabeth, who far exceeds that which would normally be expected. Together, they have provided a professional and comforting service to patients who need the care of an ophthalmologist. He is multilingual, another positive asset.

It has been brought to my attention that despite a glowing recommendation for Dr Cu and his staff, who went above and beyond the call of duty to treat my eye, his overall rating was marked as two stars when it should have been five stars or more. This may be my error or an error in the software but I want to make sure that it is rectified immediately.

I am an 88 yrs, diabetic, and nervous about cataract surgery. Dr Cu was reassuring and thorough and the surgery was very successful and I'm ready to do my other eye! He put me completely at ease and the care before and after of his staff was excellent. I appreciate all their attentiveness to my concerns and well being. Thanks you to Dr Cu and his amazing staff.
