I had adult strabismus and just had surgery with Dr. Chou. I had to wait 3 months for an appointment with her because she mostly sees children. I'm so grateful for her care and the surgery went smoothly and I no longer see double. I highly recommend her.

Maybe a good doctor, but the practice and billing departments have no respect to people and they ripped us off. Our daughter visited her some time ago for a wellness checkup and she was ok. Recently we started receiving multiple calls to schedule a *follow* up appointment from her staff. There was not medical need, just a follow up appointment. We did just that with the full understanding that my daughter is an established patient. When we received the bill it was coded as "new patient visit" th

Dr. Chou shined a couple lights into my son's eyes and declared him blind. Of course this put my wife into tears. Then she had the nerve to bill us $59 for a refraction test because Insurance won't pay it. Dr. Chou: You're fired! We'll never visit you again.
