I can't praise Dr. Cheih and her staff forthe care they provide my Dad. She take the time to explain to him what's going on with his eyes at every visit (as he has dementia and can't remember) all the staff are great at slowing down, speaking loudly for him to hear. they provide me with tools to use at home to help my dad and to have a better understanding of what he is experiencing. I just think the world of Dr. Cheih!
