Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Drs. Chan and Moon are very personable and proficient. And their office uses state of that art diagnostic equipment. Health check ups are not usually fun and entertaining but I DO experience my exams with Drs. Chan and Moon as both fun and entertaining!"
    Teresa P.
  • "From check-in to check-out, all the personnel were kind, friendly and knowledgeable. The only issue I ran into was the doctor telling me that, "For a person in your 70s, your eyes are in very good shape!" Wait just a minute, here! I'm only 69, and a young 69, at that! We had a good laugh. 69, 73... What's the difference, really?"
    John F.
  • "1) Staff from the Front Desk to the Testing staff are extremely Personal-able and positive. 2) Of course Dr. Jerry Chan is excellent. 3) If I were to pick a staff this would be the folks that i would pick! 4) The young lady who tests my eyes every time is EXCELLENT 5) Her smile is contagious! The whole group seems to enjoy what they do!"
