He's vert professional yet very considerate, caring and knowledgeable about his work. Every time I visited him, he assured me everything is going great and kinda reached to that conclusion after thoroughly examining my eyes. He understoodmy concerns related to my other medicines' probability of affecting my vision. If I didn't move out of Philly, I would have still visited him.

Dr Fung was great. But, The office doesnt have an area for you to wait while your eyes are dilating. So your in the main waiting room and it's very bright. I also waited over an hour to see a nurse.

This office is busy but is run very efficiently. I was called in promptly at my scheduled appointment time. The nurse asked me relevant questions and did some pre-check work - all done quickly. Dr. Fung came in immediately after and was personable and answered all my questions.

It was great. Though there is quite another long wait after the one in the waitroom. But overall the trip took around 1 hr 30 minute so it was fast. The best thing about this office is the appointment. I triedto place 2 appointment at other institute and the earliest I got was 3 month away. This one gives me an appointment immediately within 1 day so this was great.

Waiting time was under ten minutes, actually. The entire staff was polite and professional. Dr. Fung was able to treat me professionally and friendly as well. Because this was my first time at this office, I was very unprepared; however, hewas able to assist me without that information. He was also able to answer all of my questions. I highly recommend him and I will be coming back.

Dr. Fung was very personable and answered all of my questions in a concise and thorough manner. His office is busy and he's clearly juggling a lot of patients at the same time, but I didn't feel like my appointment withhim was rushed. As a new patient, he and his staff were thorough in getting my medical history and asking questions to better treat me going forward. I'd definitely recommend him for anyone looking for a quality ophthalmologist in Philadelphia.

This is one of those practices that feels like an assembly line. The front desk staff were *very* nice and helpful. But that's where the positivity ends. I was disappointed and found the physician unhelpful and uninterested in being helpful. Go elsewhere if you can find somewhere else.

All of the staff are extremely friendly andknowledgeable. Dr. Fung was also more than happy to take the time to explain the various exams and procedures he was doing... all around A+++ practice.
