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.

Both my husband and myself are patients of Dr. Kaw's. We are very happy with the care that has been provided. No urgent apt needed. I found the office to be clean and very comfortable with large leather chairs. Staff was attentive upon entry in office. My eyes were dilated , estimated wait time including exam was timely. My only concern was if I was alone I would not have been able to drive. Maybe this could have been said with reminder call.

I switched to Dr. Kaw from a local group two years ago. The wait time is comparable; eye drops take time to work--entire visit is about 1.5 hours. My last visit was scheduled last minute, a change in vision. I was in the office within 48 hours, reassured and left at ease. I would not go back to the group practice. I like the personal attention and that Dr. Kaw takes time to explain thoroughly what is going on, answer questions, and discuss what to look for in the future.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kaw's for the past three or four years. We have been entirely satisfied with the care we have received in that office. Dr. Kaw and her staff are friendly, helpful, kind and professional. Having a good optician in the same building makes taking care of routine eye matters quite easy. I have never felt rushed by Dr. Kaw or her staff. Her manner is thorough, gracious and gentle.

Dr. Kaw was warm and approachable. She was also very thorough and good on managing time (I neither felt rushed nor delayed). During my appointment I had difficulty keeping my eye open for a glaucoma test and she gently assisted me to do so by holding my lashes and it made it so much easier. I would definitely recommend her to others.

Dr. Kaw is most personable and actually an appointment I look forward to. She runs an efficient office with lovely staff and she herself spends whatever time is needed and never appears rushed. She is an experienced surgeon and works well with both the elderly and pediatric age groups. I have sent several of my friends to her office and they were all pleased with their visits.

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.
