Patient Reviews
Jun 17, 2024
Always efficient service. I was very apprehensive coming in for a cataract surgery consultation (as I am with any surgeries) but I’m so glad I did because I am thrilled with the results! I can’t believe the bright colors and finer details that I can now see. I own a taupe, beige shirt but after my cataract surgery I realize it was actually pink! I didn’t know how bad my cataracts were and how it impacted my vision until after they were removed. Highly recommend everyone with cataracts not to wait and get them removed with Dr Ngai. Don’t wait! His staff is wonderful as well:)
