Dr Yang's office is in the heart of Chinatown, which means everyone around you (patients, staff) speaks Cantonese (with occasional Mandarin). If you are not a native Chinese speaker, you might think you're going to have a challenge communicating.But the experience was great, and Dr Yang is a first-language English speaker (who jokes about her modest Chinese language skills). Very friendly, patient and thorough. Very positive experience, especially if you want to feel like you've temporarily been transported to Hong Kong while getting your eyes did.

Dr. Yang’s staff was fast and efficient. It was a routine eye exam but with all the tests and the consultation, I was in and out in an hour. I had some health concerns, but everyone was very supportive and kind.Dr. Yang listened to my concerns and she was very empathetic and although the office visit was fast, she didn’t rush me. She also gave clear and logical explanations for her suggested treatment plans and executed prescriptions and follow ups right away.

Dr. Jennifer Yang was excellent, and her staff was very professional. The office space itself wasn't the best - very old space and equipment. Slightly confusing process for the whole appointment; a technician took me in and out of the waitingroom into 2 different exam rooms, then the third time I was called I actually saw Dr. Yang in an entirely different room.

Although the office isn't in the most modern location, the staff and Dr. Yang were all very friendly and thorough. The office is closed for one hour for lunch from 12:30 to 1:30, so I had to wait outside for afew minutes before being let in. All in all a good experience.

Dr. Yang was great. She was professional in her exam and gave me prescriptions that I needed. The only issue is the office. I booked am appointment via ZocDoc and they called me the next day to move my appointment becausethey were not seeing patients that day. After leaving me a voicemail they then called my emergency contact about rescheduling my appointment. Last time I checked rescheduling am appointment is not an emergency. When I arrived at the office there were lots of people waiting. Even though I already submitted paperwork online, I was asked to fill out the same information again in person. In addition they only accept CASH. This was not clear ZocDoc not did they tell me before my appointment. In summary, while Dr. Yang is great, her office is not. I do not recommend going to this office.

The office is really weird and I was shuttled back and forth between various room and seen by a bunch of different people. It's in the heart of China town and everything is in Mandarin or Cantonese and it all feelsa little shabby, but the doctor herself is GREAT thorough and professional.

The office staff are very friendly and quickly set me up for a peripheral eye test. The office is clean, well lit and organized. Dr. Yang is one of the friendliest doctors I have ever met and even shared with mea fiction book she is currently reading. Dr. Yang clearly explained my test results and my next steps. She also took time to answer my questions. At no point did I ever feel rushed.

Dr. Yang was very attentive, explained in real world language (not that technical medical language that non-physicians don't have a clue on what the physician is talking about) all procedures and all her concerns about my eye health. She askedif I had any questions and answered it. I liked and I recommend.

This was my first visit to the brooklyn office. It is nice and clean. Front desk lady was sweet. Wait time was less than 5 min after I completed the paperwork. Although Dr. Yang didn't introduce herself and I had toask to clarify, I thought the overall visit went well. I had not had my eyes checked for years and she did several tests and took a baseline photo. Dr. Yang briefly discussed her findings and provided me with an updated prescription for my glasses. I really appreciated how everything could be done in one day without waiting for hours or having to go to another location. I would come to see Dr. Yang at this office in the future. Remember to bring your sunglasses with you on your appointment because after your pupils are dilated from the tests the sun can hurt your eyes on the way home!
