Dr. Voo really impressed me! She could not be more kind, intelligent, patient...just wow. And her amazing office staff members were very sweet with me on the phone and were able to get me in very quickly when I described my symptoms. She is clearly at the top of her field, and she was able to confirm what another retina specialist (Dr. Murthy from Pasadena/Beverly Hills) told me -- that I had retina tufts, not tears.
