I was a patient of Dr. Robert C. Kwun yesterday, 9/9/16. My husband and I loved Dr. Kwun. He was such a kind, considerate doctor, and we knew right away that he was very knowledgeable. Read his resume and you will know he is an awesome doctor. I had a half-curtain appear in my left eye on 9/8/16, which lasted for 15 minutes. After many tests of my eye, he diagnosed my problem - I had a blood clot in my eye. He wrote a note to my PC doctor to follow up with tests, & to come back in 9 mo.

This man is arrogant, rude, late. He complained to his assistant about the ineptitude of the office manager (gossiping in front of patients is unprofessional). He did not listen to my questions; gave me unrelated answers. He did not help me in any way, and actually, his technique was painful. He pressed very hard on my eye with a q-tip (damaged my skin), then said, Look to the left! I told him I couldn't move my eye, he was pressing on it! He did this 2 more times! Not very bright!
