I've been a long time patient of Dr. Ko, who worked hard to save my vision. During the years he treated me, I wasn't just put on meds, he actively sought to find out what was going on in my eyes. As of 2014, the illness finally went into remission and has remained that way. In June 2015, the illness in my lungs went into remission,, as well. I tam grateful Dr. Ko was there each step of the way, and that I can still see.
