Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Chieh "Retinal diseases are often vision threatening, which creates a lot of fear and anxiety for my patients about what lies ahead. I am committed to partnering with my patients to ensure they have all of their questions answered about their diagnosis and treatment options. Retinal diseases are complex and challenging by nature. Luckily, the field of vitreoretinal surgery has advanced dramatically with new and exciting diagnostic tools and therapies, both medically and surgically."

I like this doctor, such a professional that cares! Oh, and I typically don't have a good opinion about doctors because most doctors don't listen to their patients. I've been under doctor care for all of my 57 years and it should be the norm to trust and appreciate your doctor.

In fact, I just recommended her to a friend. She is bright, gifted, a wonderful bedside manner. Is happy to answer any and all questions. I can't recommend her highly enough. She handled a vitrectomy for me a couple of years ago and I still see her for checkups.

I had visited other ophthalmologists in the past and got varying diagnoses for a problem in my left eye, but no solutions. An arrogant male ophthalmologist at the Polyclinic dismissed my concerns in 3 different appointments, saying my eyes were fine, even though my vision remained blurry. When I found Dr. Chieh, she examined my eyes and noted the macula in the back of my eye was rippled and pulling loose. It needed surgery. The surgery completely restored my vision.
