Patient Comments (2)
Foster City, CA |
I recently had a frightening experience. After complaining about poor eyesight and blurry vision for over 6 months, I was told my eye was healthy and that I should wear my glasses more. Dr. Koo did examine my eye several times to come to that conclusion. Finally, I decided to get another opinion, only to learn that I had 5 tears in my retina and a detachment. Thank goodness I listened to my body and sought another opinion. I recently underwent surgery and am recovering from it now.

Do not recommend. The technician who performed the eye exam was very knowledgeable but has since left the office of Dr. Koo. She does not come across as being dedicated to her patients as she works only part time. Not knowledgeable regarding my cornea conditions: Instead of giving specifics about the specifics and referring me to other specialists, she asked me to consult Google. Was not thorough. Lack of professionalism.
