Patient Reviews
Jun 02, 2020
I had an emergency detached retina and Dr. You went above and beyond to meet with me as soon as humanly possible during non working hours and the coronavirus pandemic. Dr. You taught at Brown Univ. and explains things extremely well. He took a conservative approach with me and escalated as needed. I felt he was my partner and advocate. We made treatment decisions together after he thoroughly explained the situation and my options. He has a great bed-side manor too. I felt he really cared about me and the best possible outcome for me. OC Retina had convenient offices, hours, and staffing too. I owe my sight to Dr. You.

Board Certifications
What’s a board certification and why is it important that my provider has one?

A board certification represents a provider’s dedication to ongoing training in one or more specialties, including the completion of intensive exams. While not all specialties have board certifications, if your provider does have one they’ve taken the extra step to master their specialty and to keep up with the latest advancements in their field.
