I've been seeing Dr. Chow for keratoconus in both eyes. He seems caring and is willing to answer questions... .that is if you stick around long enough in the office to see him. The problem is the wait time at the Southfield office is ridiculous. I was scheduled for a 12:00 appointment and didn't...more

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.
