I have had several procedures done with excellent results. His office is well-equipped with state of the art technology. His staff is very loyal and have been with him for many years; all are well-trained, polite, caring individuals. The doctor takes time with each patient and explains everything in great detail. The office also includes Dr. Fong, optometrist, and Debbie who offers an array of eyeglasses. To my mind, all are top-rated and I feel fortunate to live near such a good eye doctor.
