I had never been to an eye doctor before and my visit with Dr. Fung was quick, efficient, and pleasant! I also felt like it was a thorough visit and there wasn't any sense of haste during my examination. I'll absolutely be returning to see Dr. Fung for my annual eye exams moving forward!
Nice guy, very thorough. The front desk workers were great and very helpful as well. Overall, a good first appointment with a new eye doc.

I definetely recommend DR. Fung! 5 stars ?? He was very kind and understanding. He provided answers to all my questions although i only visited to refresh my contact lens prescription ( I am a person with high myopia, deattachment problems, considering lasik etc etc...)
Dr. Fung is great! He has a strong sense of humor, is very friendly, and also explains medical stuff to you in a way that makes sense. I would definitely visit him again.
A very knowledgeable doc, with great bedside manner. I have serious health issues and he focused on the problems that may also have an impact on my vision. Overall a great experience

Great staff and thorough doctor. Highly recommend!
Dr. Michael Fung is very knowledgeable and professional! I just had my first appointment with him and will recommend him to my family and friends! He has a welcoming demeanor, has a great/ relatable personality, and is very approachable. I was able to ask questions and confide in him. A++!
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.
Dr. Fung is very friendly and respectful. He is gentle while attending my wife.
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.
Dr. Fung is an excellent and a very nice doctor. The staff at the front desk are also very nice and helpful.
Dr Fung was very nice and helpful. I felt very good after I left office because all the question marks in my mind were gone. Girls at front desk was very nice and clear as well. I really appreciate the whole crew for the service.
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 tried to 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.
Dr. Fung was nice and professional. I didn't have to wait very long in the waiting room. However, I did feel a rushed by the nurse who took me back. Overall good experience but it did seem like the Dr. Fung and the nurses were in a bit of rush.
The doctor was very attentive to my needs and solved my issue. His office staff was very professional and friendly. I'll be going back!
He was informative, professional and nice. The people in his office were professional and friendly.
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, he was 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.
Great visit, very quick and he spent a good amount of time addressing my concerns.
This was an out of network visit and his staff didn't inform me until it was too late.
Easy going & very friendly!
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 with him 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.
Dr. Fung is the best!
Efficient, patient-focused and friendly folks.
He is really professional,
I really love Dr. Fung, I just hate there is always a considerable wait.
examination was thorough & complete, The proceedures and results were fully expailned to me
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.
GREAT Dr. Shows great personal care for his patients.
Dr. Fung was amazing on every front. I was running late due to meetings and the office was happy to accommodate my schedule and immediately saw me when I arrived 20 minutes late. All of the staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. 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.
For the first time in quite a while for me, going to the eye doctor was a great experience. The staff were friendly, fast and efficient. Dr. Fung was very nice and thorough.
I was very pleased with my visit. First, I was very satisfied with all the staff, waiting and visit. Second, it was a new venue since I moved to Philly, and it is a block away from my home.
Thoroughly pleased with my visit. Dr. Fung was extremely professional and answered all my questions patiently and respectively. I was seen on time and efficiently. Would certainly recommend to anyone.
He was very professional with sacrificing compassion and understanding. I will be returning for my next eye exam.
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 understood my 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.
Highly recommended. Great experience
Got called back early. Was very pleased with the quick service and awesome bedside manner the doctor had. Definitely recommend!

Dr, Fung was delightful! I felt like he had my best interests at heart. Very happy to have a new eye doctor that I like so much!
Very friendly, put me at ease.
Dr. Michael is a great professional. He knows his subject, he is very friendly and very helpful. He shows interest to understand patient's concerns and explains issues thoroughly to satisfy the patient. I mean, that is how he treated me and my wife. I highly recommend everyone with an eye concern to go to Dr Fung. You will never regret.
Front desk lady is not helpful
Dr. Fung's office was very easy to find. The entire staff was very professional, and yet very approachable when I had questions I needed answered.
Friendly and thorough. Convenient office.
I was very satisfied with my visit with Dr. Fung. He was quite pleasant and very professional. I would recommend this center and Dr. Fung to others.
He was honest and thorough. Constantly asked if I had questions/understood what he was saying.
Very, very nice and efficient staff, from the front desk to the patient care intake, just absolutely wonderful experience!
Dr. Fung was thorough and patient while explaining the routine eye tests he was conducting and and their results. I was seen quickly and his reception staff was friendly and helpful. I came in to get an eye test for the DMV and neglected to bring the right form. His staff went the extra mile by printing the appropriate form, and scanning it once it was filled out for future records. I highly recommend this practice and will see them for all of my future eye needs.
It was pleasant and somewhat friendly however the office was not ready to utilize the online (ZocDoc) information I furnished so I had to repeat most of the information
I sent that information on another e-mail 8/26/2014.
He was professional and friendly, took his time speaking with me during and after my appointment.
Excellent bedside manner! He explained the process to me and made sure that I understood everything he was doing/telling me. I couldn't have asked for anything else.
He was wonderful! Thorough and reassuring!
Outstanding Opthomologist! Very patient, very thorough, great bed-side manner, explained everything in detail. Highly Recommend
Very personable and knowledgeable. Thoroughly explained and answered all my questions. Thumbs up!
Great patience explain everything I asked. I asked a million questions.
he is an excellent opthalmologist
I had a great experience scheduling my appointment with Dr. Fung using ZocDoc. The staff was friendly and helpful (I was even late and they never seemed bothered!) and my wait times were minimal (<5 minutes.) Dr. Fung was friendly and approachable. He explained each part of the eye exam to me in a way that was easy to understand. I felt comfortable discussing with him any of my concerns regarding vision and he was very helpful in answering my questions. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and I plan to return in a year for my next annual visit.
Great experience. Highly recommended.
He was really informative, everyone was super friendly. It was a very good experience
