My retinal specialist referred me to Dr. Chiu for cataract surgeries on both eyes. The results she managed to achieve far exceeded my expectations. Both surgeries went well and her post-op appointments were comprehensive. Dr. Chiu’s surgical skills have improved the quality of my life exponentially. For anyone as fearful as I was to undergo eye surgery of any kind, I recommend Dr. Chiu for both her technical brilliance in the operating room and her follow-up care in the office.
