I see him yearly for an eye issue. He takes his time, explains what is going on, answers questions and is very professional. I'm a nurse (and know good and not so good Drs) and I would highly recommend Dr Park.

Not very personable. Feel like just a number. Explains in medical terms that aren't easily understood.
