Dr. Ou is a very good doctor but his staff at the front desk and scheduling is horrible, referring doctors fax the referral to Dr. Ou's office but his office declines the receipt of it not once but multiple times faxed by referring doctor some of his staff at the front office is not even polite.

If you are looking for a superior and caring eye surgeon, look no further than Dr. Ou. He was as nice as he was competent. I would trust him with any and all problems connected to my eyes.
