Dr. Chong is an excellent doctor. she has been treating my retina problems for 3 years now and without her knowledge and treatment \I would be blind. she deeply care about her clients, taking all the necessary time to listen to problems and gives advice about the problem and the best treatment. I highly recommend her without any reservations.
