Summary: Dr Ko is an angel!
September 29th, 2016
Dr Ko is great. She spent plenty of time talking to me about my disease and what to expect during the surgery, and the visits did not feel rushed. She exudes empathy, kindness, and is gentle but sure in working around the eye. As a retired physician myself, I do highly recommend this very talented ophthalmologist.
