Visit was excellent. Processing through Zocdoc would have been impossible for my son, who was the patient. I completed it for him. I would highly recommend this doctor but it would be hard for a disabled person with limited access to the internet to set up an appointment.

It takes a lot to impress me. I was not expecting the surprise that I got! The little gal at the reception desk provided excellent customer service with a smile. And as for Ms. Chow, well I could not have askedfor a more thorough, more welcoming, more attentive, more patient, kind and understand as well as ever so professional OD visit. I would recommend this office to all friends, family, coworkers etc. I left today very pleased and very satisfied with all the tests that were done and information that was given to me in regards to the problems I was experiencing. Thank you Ms.Chow and associates!

Awesome doctor who is super friendly. Got my prescription right really quickly and recommended lenses that help with viewing a screen. I really noticed a difference with the special lenses. Wait time for me (I go around 2:00 on weekdays) is normally really short or near instant.

very knowledgeable and experienced. I really liked her friendly approach which SEEMS TO BE VERY RARE IN DOCTORS and i HOPE SHE MAINTAINS the same during her career. Ya one drawback, that she lacks the system of uploading the reports onthe online portal for patients reference but she was kind enough to give me copy of the reports for my reference. Also she is LOYAL to her profession as well as the patient but not recommending 2nd or follow up visit UNTIL AND UNLESS its very necessary and imp. for the eye's health. bottom line - SHE LOVES HER JOB and she is there for the betterment of the people. I shall definitely recommend her to my friends and relatives!!!

I am not the easiest patient to deal with, and yet Dr Chow was very patient with me and creative with my complicated medical issues. These will be my second pair of glasses ever, but I have been to many, manydoctors as well as other types of salespeople and Dr. Chow really stands out as being professional, friendly, and knowledgeable.
