This office is run extremely well -- at every stage of my appointment I was met with professionals that were efficient, knowledgeable, and friendly. The whole office had a generally upbeat and calm energy, and I felt like everyone truly wantedto help me and make sure I had a comfortable visit. I was in and out in an hour, and barely had to wait between tests and practitioners. Very impressed.

Great doctor, so-so facility/office/staff. I will though definitely go back to see Dr. Chang. On one hand, Dr. Chang was very informative, polite, and professional. He answered my list of questions and was very efficient. But the office playsannoying medium-loud pop music in the waiting room. The medical assistant was not at all friendly and was unreasonably short with me.

Had a quick but informative visit with doctor Chang. He was able to answer the questions I had about my condition and recommend me to a different specialist who I hope can resolve the issue.

Staff Was Extremely Personal & Professional, Mr. Chang Helped Inform Me About My Eyes, The Way We Use Them & What Surgery Would Or Wouldn't Help Correct For My Specific Issue. He Also Provided Ways To Help Keep My Eyes Healthy,& From Deteriorating So Rapidly. Sure As Vitamins, Foods & Baby Soap With Warm Water Rather Then Boric Acid I've Been Using

I had to wait for a very long time which was very frustrating. Before I could see the doctor, had to be checked out by two other professionals: technician and an OD who both evaluated me for contacts and glasses. Thevisit with the doctor himself just took 5 min from all 2 hours at the office. Although a little disappointed that not the doctor I made appointment with took care of this everything, the visit in general was fine.

The only thing I didn't like is the fact that as soon as he got in the room he asked me why I'm here if I don't want a new pair of glasses. After that he was very niece.

Dr. Chang and his assistant Craig were very nice and professional but I felt that the exam was rushed especially since I was a first time patient. I'm far sighted but was not checked for nearsighted issues and while I ama few years away from the general age when people start needing reading glasses, every eye exam I have had since age 8 checked my nearsighted vision. They also forgot to give me a perscription and I had to ask the receptionist to go back and get him to write one. I would have liked Dr. Chang to talk to me a bit more about my eye health history and take more of a general interest in me as a person. It didn't seem like he cared who I was or if I returned as a patient, and therefore, I might not.

I was in the office for an hour and a half due to waiting intervals in between routine eye exam tests. Don't know if other places would be faster or about the same.
