Patient Comments (1)
Herndon, VA |
Had a small cut on my eye, called and was able to schedule a same day appointment. Dr. Chow was great - explaining what I had and promptly fixing the issue. Staff are very nice and Dr. Chow is really easy to talk to. Unlike many specialists rushing through patients he takes the time necessary and treats people like family. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to schedule a regular checkup or emergency.
