“Dr Nah is a true professional! I had an emergency retinal tear where I needed immediate diagnosis and subsequently a laser procedure. The staff recognized the urgency and immediately fit me in. I could tell from conversation with his staff that Dr Nah had to move some of his personal evening plans to take me in last minute. He was too humble to mention it, but really appreciated his care. Most importantly the procedure has held up well.”
