Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Yu "As a practicing ophthalmologist I believe in the importance of patient education. My hope is that every patient walks away with a full understanding of the conditions and the health of their eye. My staff has been trained well to communicate with patients and take extra care for our elderly."
