I LOVE Dr.Chow, she is the only doctor I always always always look forward to going too and she is super friendly, very funny and I have a huge smile on my face from the moment I walk in her doorto the moment I leave. She also takes the time to get to know you and remembers who you are even if you only see her once a year! :)

Quality care from Dr. Chow and her staff. I was very comfortable the entire time and didn't feel rushed or pressured. Explanations were clearly articulated. Secret tip: there is a parking lot behind the building with a few spots for patients.

Dr. Chow is awesome. She asks about my vision, my health, my kids...all to make sure my holistic wellness needs are being met. I was sad when Dr. Wolfe retired and then his wife retired but I feel like I am in excellent hands with Dr. Chow.

Dr. Chow cares a lot about her patients' comfort with their eyewear (I have glasses and contacts). She is very personable and makes me feel as if I am visiting a friend rather than going to the eye doctor. I admireher thoroughness and attention to detail, and I highly appreciate her willingness to answer all of my questions.

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.
