I recently was hit in the eye with a pickleball and Dr. Chou was willing to see me immediately. She diagnose my injury and prescribe the appropriate medication and treatment. She also had a bedside manner about her that made me feel I was in good hands and and that she would do everything she could to to treat my eye and prevent further damage. This meant so much to me.

Fantastic ophthalmologist! Professionable, friendly, and knowledgeable. She was thorough and engaging. The only issue I had was in understanding her occasionally as she has a strong accent at times.

Disorganized/unprofessional. Have had to wait over an hour each time for appointments and then she repeats tests/exams from previous appointment because her & staff cannot find records. She answers personal phone calls while with patients. Does not give clear indication of what is the next steps as she/staff loses notes from exams/tests. Told to buy reading glasses from her office - were cheap plastic ones that broke w/i 2 days. Refuse to provide invoices/statements of service too. Horrible
