Amazing, kind, and a great doctor. Dr. Koo is very knowledgeable about diabetic eye health/care. He takes his time in answering questions. He is patient. He helped me finally treat an eye problem I was having after seeing 2 other eye drs! I highly recommend him.

Dr. Koo is a wonderful doctor! He is extremely kind, caring and knowledgeable. He is patient and answers every question you may have. He is thorough and honest about potential issues without worrying you needlessly. I highly recommend Dr. Koo. His office is also one of the nicest around. Most doctors offices are kind of musty and old, but his is very modern and calming. I know that the office decor shouldn't matter but I do think it reflects the personality of the doctor and the attention to detail that he cares about these things. I would say that Dr. Koo's office reflects his personality perfectly.

I was sent to Dr. Koo's office by the State of California for an Independent Medical Examination for my disability application. I have had many eye doctors over the past 20 years due to my eye condition. I have been at Kaiser, and other private doctors when I had health insurance, and now I have to go to the county clinic since I don't have insurance. I can honestly say that Dr. Koo's office is the nicest eye doctor office I have ever been in. Not only is his staff super friendly, his office is beautiful and he has the most fancy eye scanners I have ever seen. I have been treated very badly in the past by doctors offices due to my poor insurance, but Dr. Koo's office never made me feel like a second class citizen. I actually felt like a VIP since everyone was so kind to me. Even though I can't afford to see Dr. Koo right now, I will definitely go to him when I get better insurance again. I am so happy that the Department of Social Services sent me to Dr. Koo's office for an exam. I almost didn't go since I am so tired of being sent to all these different doctors by the state, but I am so glad that I went to this appointment since now I have found a wonderful eye doctor.

From the moment I walked into the office, I noticed a friendliness toward clients and among the staff. The office is welcoming. Each staff member that I met with was friendly and courteous and efficient. Dr. Koo spent time explaining my issue, anwered questions clearly and calmly, and offered to show me a video as well. My follow up appointment was equally as positive, from the moment I walked in, to the end of my appointment. Having a caring, courteous staff is such a rarity now, but it seems Dr. Koo has made every effort to create a good aura for the client as soon as he/she walks through the door. Marcie, who manages the optical shop is equally as considerate and welcoming, allowing people to simply try on the frames, and engages in conversation as well. Her frame selection is outstanding. I have been at other opthamologists' offices and I believe Dr. Koo and his staff are far superior on all levels.

My son was working on his car when he got something in it in 2009. Dr. Koo saw my son right away (we had to wait, of course, because he has a very busy practice, but my son was seen the *same day* I called) and treated him immediately, so he wouldn't have to wait to get the prescription to have some pain relief. He was also very thorough in explaining what had happened, why he was doing what he was doing, what to expect, and after the initial healing time, he had us schedule a couple of follow-up appointments to make certain everything was 100%. Dr. Koo has an incredible bedside manner, and I have complete confidence in him. And that's saying something, because usually I'm skeptical about doctors' abilities. Dr. Koo knows his stuff (He is the chairman of the hospital eye department) and obviously cares deeply about his patients and their families. I also found the staff helpful and pleasant. I've recommended Dr. Koo to many of my friends, family, and colleagues since and they all agree with my assessment of Dr. Koo. He is now the eye doctor for all of my family members that live in the area. We are happy that we found such a great doctor.

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Koo after being examined by his well trained staff. The exam was the most thorough I've had and all the staff are friendly and helpful. There wasn't anything bad to say at all. The office is beautiful and clean. Making the appointment was simple. I was a glaucoma suspect for years. Dr. Koo felt that I might have a vitamin deficiency which turned out to be true. My vitamin B12 was horribly low. I felt so much better after being treated. I also had high levels of mercury which was addressed. Nobody in ten years thought to even check this out. I sent the rest of my family there. We are all pleased.

You will never find a doctor smarter, more caring and understanding, and tops in his field. He discovered glaucoma which could have blinded me, and has worked with me to get my expensive meds paid for. No other doc found it. His staff is also tops and super nice. In regard to the irate person, please blame your insurance not Dr. Koo. Once I had a problem with billing in that I felt I already had paid a copay. The front desk staff immediately called the billing manager (Joan or Joanne I think) who was extremely courteous and friendly, and my problem was immediately resolved on the spot. Don't lose out on seeing a truly great doctor because of someone's tirade against the health insurance system in this country, which they are completely right about how awful it is! ;-D

Was told by receptionist that Dr. Koo does removal of cyst on caruncle. Dr. Koo does not. Wasted my time and money. They did a vision check and pressure check of my eyes, even though I did not consent and protested. I was there to see Dr. Koo re the cyst on my caruncle, not for a regular eye exam. I told them this. Honesty and professionalism highly questionable.

Dr. Koo was very kind, informative and knowledgeable. He assured me that my eyes showed no affect of the presence of diabetes. He knew exactly what he needed to do for me, in testing my eyes for any problems that Diabetes could cause. In describing some of the problems I was having, and after reviewing my medications, he assured me that the problems were related to the medications; and since it is not an option to discontinue them, he suggested an over-the-counter drop which should help some of the difficulty. (Now several months later, he is correct, I would suggest him for others who need diabetic eye exams.

Dr. Koo is an excellent eye dr. He made me feel calm and safe during my eye surgery. He is very professional and answers any questions you have regarding your eye surgery, or your eye exam. He is very easy to talk to. I recommend Dr. Edward Koo if you need an eye doctor. and if you need eye surgeon, he is extremely talented. He performed a complicated cataract surgery on my right eye,and gave me back my eye sight! When it is time for my left eye surgery, I will definately have Dr. Koo do that surgery too. I have been a patient of Dr. Koo's for over 12 years.

Great doctor!! He obviously cares about his patients and their families and gave me the most thourough and compassionate eye exam I've ever had. I thought the exam fees and the glasses were very reasonably priced, especially considering the amount of time both the doctor and the staff spent with me. When most offices route you through a voicemail from the moment you call, this office's one-one-one personalized care is refreshing. I've been to other offices in the area and this is, by far, the best! I recommend it to my closest friends & family.

I love Dr. Koo! I have been seeing him for several years. His office has definitely gotten a lot busier over the past couple years, especially since he moved to his new office. At times he is a little late, but he is always so friendly that I never really seem to mind. Plus, I haven't really been to any doctor's office where I haven't had to wait a little bit. Dr. Koo is extremely intelligent, and is never condescending. He cares very much for his patients and always takes the time to make sure that he and his staff perform a thorough examination and answer any of my questions. I would highly recommend this physician. My mother and brother also see him now after I recommended his office to them.

Dr Koo's staff always greets you by name and are very pleasant. Dr Koo takes the time you need to answer all of your concerns. He always asks lifestyle questions to assist you in making wise choices or necessary changes to benefit your health. We feel that Dr Koo genuinely cares about people and making sure we stay healthy. Even though he has a higher education than most of us he never makes you feel like he is better than anyone else. Talking to him is much like talking with a friend, very easy going. There have been times when he was unable to help me and referred me to another specialist. One of the most impressive things is that his office will see you for emergencies the same day. My other doctors always make me go to the emergency room. He also returns all phone calls within 24hrs. He is most unique, we have never had such a special doctor. He is one in a million. Our family is very lucky to have him as our eye doctor.

A truly compassionate and skillful physician - a rarity in this day and age! He did cataract surgery on my elderly mother, which healed perfectly. She says that she now sees better than she has for the past 30 years. Amazing! He truly cares about his patients as well. He called my mother the night of her surgery to check up on her and make sure that everything was alright. I have been with my mom through several surgeries and have never had a physician call her outside of office hours to check up on her before. If you or your loved one needs any eye surgery, Dr. Koo is the one you should go to.

Knowing that you need surgery is scary especially when it comes to your eyes. I was very concerned because on my first eye that another doctor performed ended up in some complications. One of my friends recommended Dr.Koo for cataract surgery and so I went to him. He's quite young but makes up for it in skill, mannerisms and personality. I had my second eye done by Dr. Koo and my vision has surpassed my expectations. I was completely comfortable throughout the whole surgery. I'm glad that I had the opportunity to be introduced. Unfortunately, the doctor is no longer taking my insurance, but I plan to see him anyways. The optical shop and optician are great. The staff really care. He has my vote of confidence.

I have been a patient at Dr. Koo's office for the past 4 years and I can absolutely say without reservation that his is the best doctors office I have ever been to. I have had several eye doctors throughout my life since I have a very strong prescription in my glasses and although most of them have been very nice, Dr. Koo is by far the nicest and most detail oriented doctor I have ever been to. His staff is also extremely warm and kind. I recently bought some new glasses from Dr. Koo and his optician, Heather. She treated me so well, that I would have bought another pair if I had needed them. My new glasses look great on me and since I have a very strong prescription, I have always had the problem of the lenses looking too thick. Well, Heather figured out a way for me to get a super-thin lens with polished edges and now my glasses look like someone who has a regular prescription. I can't say enough how satisfied I am with Dr. Koo's office.

I have to write something because I am devastated that Dr Koo does not accept my new insurance Brown and Toland. He has been the best eye doctor I have ever had and I am so sad I can not go to him anymore. He has fit me in numerous times at last minute notice, and I have always felt extremely comfortable and impressed by his competence. I have recommended him to numerous friends and they all agree with me. Hopefully my husband's insurance will change again next year so that I can return to Dr Koo.

I have a very difficult prescription. I have alot of astigmatism and wanted soft contacts. I had tried soft contacts before at other eye doctors and they never fit right. Dr. Koo and Dr. Bailey (his optometrist) are problem solvers and will spend the time it takes to get you in contacts that are comfortable. It took me several visits and many different pairs of contacts before we finally found a pair that I can wear comfortably all day. But now I have a pair of contacts that I can wear all day long! I can't say enough good things about Dr. Koo and his staff. They have the patience to take the time to figure out your problem. I have been going to him for the past 4 years. His new office is very slick and now they have a dedicated contact lens fitting room which is super cool.

Dr. Koo is a very knowledgeable, caring, and kind physician. He gets to know his patients very well and therefore knows how to treat the whole patient. I've been going to him for the last 7 years, first at his old office in San Bruno and now to his beautiful new office in Burlingame. Over those 7 years, Dr. Koo has kept me well by knowing just how to treat me. He knew when to give me antibiotics, when to send me to a Retina Specialist, and when to just let things just run their course. He is also very personable and relates to his patients in a way that makes them feel like he really cares about them. I have been told by other doctors that I am a complicated patient. But Dr. Koo has always treated me calmly and with grace. I was never made to feel like I was some kind of catastrophe. I wish there were more doctors in the world like Dr. Edward Koo.

But Dr. Koo has always treated me calmly and with grace. I was never made to feel like I was some kind of catastrophe. I wish there were more doctors in the world like Dr. Edward Koo.

I first saw Dr. Koo to get a second opinion about getting Lasik. I had already been to one of those Lasik chains that advertises on the radio and they had said that I was a great candidate and wanted to laser me that same day. Luckily for me I wanted to think about it for a bit before I went ahead. My co-worker told me that I should get a second opinion before I went a head and recommended Dr. Koo who was his eye doctor. I made an appointment with Dr. Koo for a Lasik consult. After a very thorough work up, he told me that I was a borderline case for Lasik. He showed me the scans that revealed that my eye is irregular on the surface. He said that although I probably would get a good result, it was by no means guaranteed. He recommended that I wait another year and get rechecked in a year if I still wanted to get Lasik. I really appreciated his honesty. Hell, he cost himself several thousand dollars which the other Lasik chain was all to willingy to take from me. Maybe I'm jaded, but it's nice to know there are still honest, caring doctors out there. I may still get Lasik in the future, but for now I'm just happy that I have Dr. Koo as my regular eye doctor.

I would like to tell everyone how happy and satisfied I have been with my LASIK procedure by Dr. Koo. Nearly 6 months after my procedure I am still astonished every day of my 20/15 vision. After the procedure I could not believe how quickly my eyes and vision reverted back to normal. I was truly impressed with Dr. Koo's skills. I had none of the red eye symptoms which some of my friends had after surgery by other doctors. I am sending my wife and everyone else I care about to Dr. Koo.

I had Dr. Koo as my eye doctor 7 years ago. Then my husband's insurance switched to Kaiser, so I was with them for the past 7 years. My husband was finally able to switch back to a PPO and now I can pick my doctors again. Being at Kaiser was terrible. They don't even let you see a real medical eye doctor. I learned from a friend that Dr. Koo had moved to a new office and I agree whole heartedly with Stacy W that Dr. Koo's new office is incredible. Definitely the nicest doctor's office I have ever been to. In addition, Dr. Koo is as wonderful as I remember. He is kind, considerate, funny and caring. He also doesn't look like he has aged one day from the last time I saw him seven years ago. I am so jealous. Anyways, I just wanted to share with everyone that you would be hard pressed to find a better eye doctor than Dr. Koo. I am so glad to be back :)

Dr Koo has been treating me for a few years for recurring eye infections. He is very knowledgeable in his field. He teaches at UCSF. He is always willing to go that extra mile to accommodate your needs. Dr. Koo has even offered to come in on his day off to see me if I could not make it in during his scheduled office hours. I like and trust him so much that I followed him when he moved to his new office, even though it was farther away. I have and will continue to refer my friends and family members to him any time. Thanks Dr. Koo. I'm glad that there are still doctors like you around.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Koo and his staff. He is rare in the fact that he is not only compassionate and caring, but also highly skilled. I could not be happier with my Lasik results and the care I received. He changed my life and I am very grateful. I cancelled my other Lasik consultations, because I knew in my gut that he was the right one after my first visit with him. He was recommended to me by my co-worker and now I recommend him to anyone who is thinking of getting Lasik done. He works wonders and listens to your needs. I think he also does regular eye exams and stuff, since he has a very nice optical shop in his office as well.

Dr.Koo is a very helpful and knowledgeable doctor. His recommendations for different care for myself has prevented more serious out comes. His ability to put one at ease is exceptional. Dr. Koo personally calls and informs me of the different test results and what action is needed on my part. He truly has earned my respect over the past several years that I have seen him. I have recommended my family and friends to him. His staff has always been professional and very friendly. Lastly, I would have to say that Dr. Koo is also an instructor at UCSF which is great because I believe that he has a lot to offer in his profession. Thank whom ever is responsible for this rating site.

Dr. Koo operated on my mother's cataract about three months ago and I just wanted to share my experience you. I met Dr. Koo for the first time at the hospital on the day that I brought my mother in for her cataract surgery. I had heard great things about him from my mother (seems he has quite a good reputation at the senior center) but had never met him personally. I was initially a bit surprised that he looked so young (being in OR scrubs which look like pajamas i'm sure doesn't help!) but his calmness and friendly personality immediately put me at ease. He assured me that he and the OR staff would take good care of my mother and that they would be back in approximately one hour. I waited for about an hour and a half and was starting to get a bit anxious when they finally came back. Dr. Koo apologized for taking so long, but it seems that there had been some head movement during the surgery (my mom moved her head) which caused an unexpected complication and therefore took longer for him to fix. He told me that most likely she would turn out perfect but that it would take a while longer then a typical recovery. I went home clearly worried, but hoped for the best. Dr. Koo called me that evening to check up on my mother and to see if we had any questions or concerns. We saw him the next day and everything looked good. To make a long story shorter, it has now been three months and my mother sees perfectly out of that eye. What struck me the most about Dr. Koo was his honesty and integrity. He was immediately open and honest about what happened in the OR and explained carefully to me about the expected possible outcomes. He followed up that evening with my mother and rechecked her frequently until just recently when he said that she can go back to yearly check ups with him. I think that most doctors look good when everything goes well, but it is the truly great ones that show their character when things don't go as planned. Dr. Koo is one of the great ones and I can't recommend him any higher. I only hope that he is still practicing when it is time for me to get my cataract surgery.

I love Dr. Koo and his entire staff. He is a wonderful Doctor. Very knowledgeable, thorough, takes time with you. Wonderful "bed-side" manner with patients. Our family has been using him since my daughter was 4. She is 8 know and she always looks forward to her visits to see him. His staff is very friendly and professional. Very helpful. The Optometrist working with him does preliminary testing each time we go see him and she is great. She really knows how to get the kids to respond so that she can get the best info for the Doctor. Sometimes there may be a little bit of a wait, but not too bad. I even get a cash discount! I agree with the other reviewer that Dr. Koo's new office is quite stunning. Our family would have continued to see him regardless of which office he was at, but his new office definitely makes it even more comfortable to visit him.

I had seeked the opinion of several eye doctors for my somewhat complicated eyes. Dr. Koo won me over. After a very through evaluation, he explained why I was somewhat not a perfect candidate to have my vision corrected. He went over all the options to correct my vision with a full discussion of the risks and benefits. Together we devised a plan. Well, after all is said and done, I am over joyed!!! My vision is great, better then I expected. He under promised and over delivered. I couldn't be happier. Thanks Dr. K. Your the best!!

I actually already wrote a review for Dr. Koo but placed in under his office name of Peninsula Ophthalmology Group. I realize now that most people will be searching by his name, so I will add a review under his name as well. Dr. Koo is one of the kindest, caring doctors I have ever met. I see several doctors for different medical problems so I feel like I have a pretty good feel for the different types of doctors out there. Dr. Koo puts you at ease right away and listens to you. He also operated on my aunt's cataract and did a fantastic job. So he is a good surgeon as well as being a kind person. I mentioned this in the other review, but he just moved to a new office and it is beautiful. Definitely the nicest doctors office I have ever been to. I feel very fortunate that I found Dr. Koo and am glad he moved to a larger office since his old office was a bit "dated."
