"Dr. Tong is detailed oriented. Explains everything. Very nice too!!"
I was very impressed with my treatment overall, from the helpful and prompt service during check-in, to the information-gathering and vision measurement by Nurse Julie, to finally the utter professionalism, calm and friendly demeanor, and deep knowledge of her specialty of Dr. Wong. She spent a lot of time with me and clearly explained every element if my sight and what needed to be done. All factors of my visit were integrated well and the process ran like clockwork!
