Super Doctor. Highly knowledgeable and gentlemen. I had one cataract surgery before where I wasn't happy with. With dr Chou I had the best result for the second eye. So quick so comfortable and so satisfied. Dr. Chou's experience is not matchable. Wish I had the first surgery with him. Thank you...more
