State of The Art Facility and doctors. Exceeded my expectations. Extremely careful regarding Covid19….Everybody wearing masks, etc. Thank you
Dr. Kung and Dr. Chen are wonderful. Coming from 40 years of excellent care from my prior ophthalmologist, who just retired, I had high expectations, and those have been met! The office is well-run, and all the staff have been kind and competent. Thank you!
Dear Kung is an absolute genius! In my opinion he is the best cataract surgeon in NY city.
You may wish to seek a second opinion if:
In many cases, you will not need a referral for a second opinion. However, if you do require a referral, simply ask your current physician or eye doctor, and mention your concern. While some people may feel intimidated or do not want to offend their current doctor, there is no need to worry. Any doctor should be open to the idea of a second opinion in order to best meet their client’s needs. It is also important to keep open communication between yourself and your physicians to increase the potential for the best outcomes.
