After doing a reasonable amount of research, Dr. Kanda became my first choice for a opthamologist .....After my first visit I was impressed with her thorough examination of my eyes and her willingness to answer all my questions. And when I say all, I mean all. She took the time to answer all my questions thoroughly and never once did she get defensive about any of my questions.

Dr. Kanda is the absolute best ophthalmologist in the Valley. Her patients love her (which is evident when they all rave about her while we're in the waiting room). She calls you personally whenever the need arises which is practically unheard of these days. Had cataract surgery in both eyes and Dr. K was a consummate professional. She is also one of the nicest doctors I've every seen.
