Patient Comments (2)

Dr Wan is ok. His medical assistants (3 women) are horrible. Very defensive. Any questions you asked, they took it as questioning about their knowledge. Maybe they are right, no knowledge and professional attitude.

My mother had lense implant surgery and years later, she was still able to read the text on the TV that I couldn't read! I had an iridotomy, also called LPI, on my right eye. I found Dr Wan and his staff to be excellent. He explained exactly what I was to expect and answered any questions I had....more
