Dr. You saw me immediately after I had a vitreous tear diagnosed in the ED. He saved my vision. He explains everything very thoroughly and encourages questions. He is the very best.

Dr. You is an angel. He is the most caring and capable doctor I have seen. He helped my mother with the failed cataract surgery by another doctor.

he is an awesome surgeon and takes his time to do a great job. I had a torn retina & later other problems. He took all the time needed to explain in detail to myself and my husband everything we wanted to know and understand. I couldn't recommend any doctor higher.
