Patient Testimonials

"Dr. Chan-Kai is phenomenal. On June 21st I found out I had to have an emergency retinal detachment repair in my left eye. I was terrified, but Dr. Chan-Kai and his assistant Cory were so amazing in explaining everything to me. On June 23rd I had my surgery at St. Vincent’s. I can’t explain enough how relieved I am to know I was in the best hands for having to have this procedure done. I went to my post op appointment today and he says it’s looking pretty good all thanks to his excellent work. I highly recommend him if you have to have anything done, especially if it’s an emergency. I’m amazed at their level of care! The only thing bad I experienced was an hour wait time, but it’s definitely worth it when you’re in great hands! Thank you so much!"

B. Gardner

"I very much appreciate the selfless professional attitudes that I have experienced by Dr. Chan-Kai and his team. Weekend surgery and night calls. And I was never made to feel I was a bother. Thank You ❣️"
