Patient Comments (19)

The optometrist was fantastic. She exercised great care as I tried to figure out which image is clearest. Dr. Kaw was also excellent as well and very informative about my condition. I'll be happy to come back again when needed. I only deducted a star because the wait was rather long.

Have been a patient for over 5 years. Dr Kaw always listens to my concerns and explains clearly what she has found and recommendations. She is thorough and courteous . She even apologized one day when I had to wait unusually long.
