Very good care, last appointment was very quick and efficient.
in Schaghticoke, NY |
I would highly recommend Dr. Kaw to anyone having problems with their eyes. I have been a patient ever since she began her practice in Troy, NY, and can think of no other Doctor I would rather be seen by for my eyes. Dr. Kaw takes the time that is needed to ensure you understand what she is doing and why it is needed. The entire staff are also extensions of the excellent services Dr. Kaw provides.
