Dr. Jason Zhao, MD

Ophthalmologist

Professional statement

Dr. Jason Ming Zhao graduated from Hunan Medical University in China (former Xiangya Medical School co-funded by Yale-China Association in 1914) in 1982. He had a busy ophthalmic practice in China when he and his wife accepted an opportunity to move to San Antonio and work in medical research at the University of Texas Health Science Center in 1991. Between 1991 and 1997, Dr. Ming presented and published many scientific papers. However, he missed taking care of patients. For this reason, he returned to active medical practice. He began his training in the United States with a surgical internship and an ophthalmology residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, then joined the ophthalmic practice at San Antonio Eye Center in 2001. Dr. Ming is American Board certified in ophthalmology. His practice involves large area of the eye disorders including cataract, glaucoma, corneal diseases as well as eyelid problems. Dr. Ming and his wife, Joan, have two children. Jenny, who was born in China in 1989, loves ice-skating and prefers “American” food to Chinese food. Jared was born in San Antonio in February of 2000, just a few months before Dr. Ming and his wife became United States citizens. ‘Jason’ is his adopted American name, ‘Ming’ is his given Chinese name and ‘Zhao’ is his family name.

Dr. Zhao was excellent and reassuring. He correctly diagnosed the problem (incorrectly diagnosed by two previous doctors). I would highly recommend him. Although I'd checked in through Zocdoc and completed my medical history, the officecould/did not access it. Fortunately, I'd brought in a copy, and was able to bypass the time needed to complete these forms by hand. But this was a waste of paper. After handing my completed forms to the front desk, about 30 minutes later I was asked the same questions by the technician, who hadn't been given the papers I'd provided to the check-in person. Unnecessary redundancies in the check-in system probably cause some of the long wait time prior to seeing the doctor.

This is a doctor who is really good...who is confident in what he does with one of our most precious possessions, our eyes. His bed-side manner is marvelous, cheerful, understanding of your needs but clear of what is the best coursefor your eyes. His office is filled with people, which may create a sense of his not taking time with each person. The fact is he knows his craft so well and examines and determines the correct evaluation so swiftly that it may seem as if he's not there with you long enough. The opposite is true. You don't need him in the room any longer...he's done his 'stuff.' Ask any and all questions though and he will take the time to answer until you are completely satisfied. Your eyes are in good hands with Jason Zhao, MD!

We had a long wait but he was worth the wait, my daughter has a medical eye ulcer condition and has seen numerous of specialists. He is the only 1 that provided an actual diagnosis and cause of her condition whichwas due to her immune system. The check in and check out ladies were amazing as well. I am a happy parent!

Dr. Ming walked into the room joyful and confident. He immediately disarmed any nervousness over seeing a new doctor and made me feel relaxed and comfortable. He was informative, and provided me with a good understanding about my eye health.Being new to San Antonio, I did not have a doctor nor did I have a recommendation from anyone. I am truly glad that I found him. He is an outstanding doctor.
