Dr. Fan helped my father with a complicated cataract surgery. He was very informative during the process and we appreciate his help. We were in a rush to get the surgery done due to it being an emergency and he was incredibly accommodating. My dad started to feel much better the next few days.

Dr. Fan is the best. His work is excellent and has a lot of compassion towards his patients and work. My insurance changed so I am unable to see Dr. Fan. Still trying to get insurance that they accept.
