in Great Neck, NY |
AMAZING!!!! I went to Doctor Ky in July 2016. I went to THREE different doctors who weren't able to get my eye glasses prescription right. Doctor Ky was so gentle and comforting towards me. He took the time to measure my eyes, give me new trial contact lenses to try on, and was so understanding of my situation. I am glad to say that I am seeing perfectly right now and all I had to do was go to Doctor Ky. He is on time, the office staff is super friendly, and the office is super clean. THANK YOU!

I began seeing Dr. Ky in preparation and execution of my PRK vision corrective eye surgery. Throughout the entire procedure he walked me through each step and explained the steps in detail while remaining reassuring for the duration. The surgery itself lasted only ten minutes and I've never been happier, since I'm able to see without any complications, since I was a child is outstanding. I now see him for all eye exams and he is thorough and straightforward. He has excellent bedside manner.

Visited Dr Ky in his new Flushing office. He was patient, caring and thorough.he answered all questions and concerns.it was worth the trip from Merrick N Y.

Very competent, thorough and caring,
in East Williston, NY |
I saw Dr. Ky for an annual exam as I thought I needed glasses and he was very personable. He took his time and carefully explained to me my results. He is exactly the type of doctor that I love to see. His office staff was great as well and altogether it was an excellent experience!
in New York, NY |
I first met with Dr. Ky several years ago for what I believed was a standard appointment prior to vision correcting surgery. However, Dr. Ky was able to quickly identify a serious issue with my retina, that had previously been undiagnosed by 2 physicians and required immediate attention. Dr. Ky is efficient and provides a personalized level of care to his patients that I believe are important when selecting a physician. He has always demonstrated the utmost professionalism.
in Franklin Square, NY |
Dr. Ky takes the time to make sure my prescription is as good as can be every time. I'm really picky about my vision (not happy if it's not 20/20 vision) and he hangs in there to get it as close as possible for me. He's on time and courteous and makes sure my needs are addressed.
in New York, NY |
Dr. Ky is a caring competent doctor. He keys in on your symptoms and is not satisfied until you are 100% better. Would highly recommend him.
I couldnt ask for a better doctor than Dr. Ky. He took his time to explain everything and helped alleviate my anxiety before surgery. He did a wonderful job (my vision is now perfect!) and called after just to check in. I'm definitely following him to his new practice. I was really appalled by how unprofessional his former office was in dealing with his decision to leave. It seems like they're trying to sabotage his new practice. They must be worried since he was the only doc there worth seeing!
in Rutherford, NJ |
Dr. Ky performed PRK surgery for me about 8 years ago and it was the best decision I ever made. He made feel at ease with the process and the procedure went smooth. I moved to Rutherford, NJ for any ophthalmology related work for myself and my family, I make sure to make my appointment with him even for a simple annual checkup. Dr. Ky is always through in his care and I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a family eye care.
in NYC |
Dr. Ky has a pleasant, kind and professional manner. His examination was thorough and his answers to my questions were patient and concise. Despite having many patients that day, he provided ample time for my exam, my questions and the issue I had with my eye. His office provided a comfortable, clean setting and any wait time was minimal. It is important to have a doctor who listens, is patient, knowledgeable, thorough and trustworthy and I highly recommend Dr. Ky in all these areas.
in New York, NY |
Dr. Ky has been my family?s eye doctor for several years. He always provides excellent care. He takes time to answer my questions and is always very professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Ky.
Melville, NY |
Not a good experience. Dr Ky was in a rush and didn't give me much explanation on my situation. Was ready to leave within 5min and already wanted to schedule a surgery. Didn't feel I was having an adult discussion with a Doctor.
