Excellent eye doctor! Needed cyst removed from eyelid and Dr. Choo removed it painlessly in under ten minutes. Dr. Choo was very friendly and easy to talk to. He will definitely be my fist call when needing any eye surgery in the future.

Nonchalant about performing procedure and uninspiring in terms of the probable outcome. For the most part said I can do the procedure and it may not be beneficial.
