We do this through innovative design, excellent customer service, and the efficient use of technology. Our entire team believes in building trust based partnerships with our patients.

Dr. Chun will help you manage your eye heath issues and navigate complex decisions, and empower you with the knowledge and guidance you need to make positive changes. We use diagnostic tests appropriately, wary of the risk of over-diagnosis, and strive to ensure that follow-up plans are clearly understood. Moreover, we're focused on caring for you in a holistic manner, taking all aspects of your over all health and lifestyle into consideration. To help you restore and maintain optimal eye health, we've made some specialty services available to you on-site at select locations. As we grow, we'll continue to add more services to make our care as comprehensive and effective as possible. Dr. Chun is here for all your eye health needs, bringing you the peace of mind that comes from having a trusted advisor in your corner, and should you ever require a surgery, we'll help you make the best possible choice, and we'll ensure a well coordinated approach.

Dr. Chun and his staff display the knowledge and the skills needed to provide healthcare at the highest level. The entire team was extremely friendly and helpful throughout my visits and I will treasure this experience for years to come!
in Pittsburgh, PA |
Dr. Chun's staff was friendly and I was seen in a timely manner. Dr. Chun explained my problem to me and gave me his opinion on the treatment I should receive. I am very happy with the treatment I received at his office. I would definitely recommend Dr. Chun
in Pittsburgh, PA |
For a serious condition as glaucoma, his lack of explanation is appalling to me. He could have used diagrams, pictures or even the plastic model of the eye in his office to better explain this serious illness and what he found in my eyes when he did his examination. He seemed to be in a big hurry and didn't welcome questions at all.
in Pittsburgh, PA |
WE FELT HE WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL, ANSWERED OUR QUESTIONS EFFICIENTLY, AND PERFORMED THE PROCEDURE TIMELY AND WITH EXCELLENT RESULTS.
Pittsburgh, PA |
I went there for laser hair removal and this doctor supposed to do it. The office was a complete dirt, the doctor was so rude, and while I question him if he had experiences with laser hair removal burning, he said can I ask you to go to other places. He officially kicked me out of his office. He was very rude and not flexible. The office was a mess, I think it hadn't been cleaned for years
in Pittsburgh PA |
Tonya is awful. She needs to find another job or stay at home. Rude. Not professional. Does not make office visits or phone calls pleasant.
Canonsburg, PA |
The Blonde heavy set woman who answers the phone and checks you in and out is verbally abusive and rude to us and moody and bi polar so we are finding another dr. She makes us feel bad everytime. When we call she verbally treats us bad and like I said she is verbally abusive. We have been in the office and witnessed her treating her other patients like that in person and on the phone that she stormed away so why do they keep her with elderly patients or any patients?
in Pittsburgh, PA |
Too long of a wait Unprofessional slow office staff
