My teenage son was referred to Dr. Chow by our optometrist for a condition called keratoconus. Dr Chow was great! He took the time to explain the condition and treatments in a way that was clear and understandable to all of us. We are all very comfortable with him.

I was very nervous about my eye ucler and Dr. Chow had a great bedside manner and provided reasons for his treatment. I loved being a patient of Dr. Chow.
