Dr. Jeremiah Tao performed corrective orbital and ocular facial surgery on both my eyes, and I could not be more thrilled at the results. I am 70 years old, and was apprehensive before seeing Dr. Tao, but his obvious expertise, experience, and "bed side manner" was very reassuring. Dr. Jeremiah Tao is a brilliant ophthalmologist and gifted surgeon!

It was clear from the first moment I met Dr. Tao that he is interested in performing surgery rather than talking to me. He didn't really get to the bottom of why I was referred. He left the room for some reason and one of his other doctors had to come and talk to me like an adult. I forget his name but he was willing to listen to me, actually examined me and walked me through some drops that actually worked. No surgery. Thank you whoever you were. I wish Dr. Tao would have listened.

Another Ophthalmologist recommended. I had no difficulty in getting an appointment. When I arrived, he was on time and enthusiastic. Communicated very well after I explained my problem, he told me what he thought and what he thought needed to be done. All other appointments were all on time and very professional. Surgery went well with no issues. The problem with my eye was totally resolved and it has healed very nicely. I have already recommended him to a friend and my wife.
