Doctor So is great. I see him every few years and he listens to what I have to say. He's great.

Dr. So performed my lens replacement surgery 3 years ago. There were no complications whatsoever and I was good to go the day after each surgery. (Two different days--one for each eye.) I was nearly blind by the time I had the surgery and he gave me back my eyesight. I would recommend him to anyone.
