Dr. Suh is the best ophthalmologist. She treated my daughter for her dry eye symptoms 5 years ago. My daughter is doing well today. We are forever grateful to Dr. Suh for her compassion, patience, and skills.

After thoroughly researching LASIK providers, I recently elected to have LASIK performed by Dr. Suh – and I am so thrilled with the outcome! Although I had some trepidation about the procedure and possible side effects, Dr. Suh and her staff were warm and reassuring in guiding me through the process and explaining everything. I am now seeing the best I have ever seen! I have the highest regards for Dr. Suh and would strongly recommend her to anyone considering LASIK.

I went to Dr. Suh undecided on whether to get LASIK. I brought up concerns and articles about potential issues. She made it seem like my concerns were overblown, unfounded. After LASIK with her I now I suffer from the ailments I was concerned about, regret the decision and am annoyed at her selling me the idea that I shouldn’t be concerned.
