Dr. Zhang was truly wonderful. During my consultation she was very informative and made me feel very comfortable. Granted I haven’t been to the eye doctor in years, she kept reminding me to not worry and stress so much about it.My appointment was later during the day on a exteremely cold day and she stayed late to see me and didn’t rush me at all. Her staff was just as friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend Dr. Zhang as your primary eye care doctor!

We like how Dr. Zhang explained the series of tests that she will be doing and explained to us the results. On top of that, we love how she was nice and patient to our 2 yr old (who did notget a check up but was pretty all over the place). We definitely recommend Dr. Zhang.

Dr. Zhang was very kind, thorough and attentive to my concerns. I’ve felt like a lot of other places rush through eye exams and don’t fully address everything but she was glad to help and I felt super comfortable. Staff doesn’tbother you to push sales and are super polite. The wait time was not bad at all.

The doctor was very kind and courteous. The exam was thorough and she took her time answering my questions. I also appreciated that she explained some details about what my insurance would cover even before I had thought to ask aboutit. The only downside was the hour-long wait to see the doctor. This is likely because she is so patient and thorough, but I was only the second patient of the day.

My experience at Dr. Min Zhang office was great! I had a issue with my left eye where it was causing alot of discomfort due to a pebble being stuck on the top of my lid from wearing contacts. Dr. Zhangwas able to take it out and I no longer feel any discomfort or have redness / irritation. Very responsive in seeing me right away when I got in the office. Would highly recommend going to see her! A+!

I have been to optimologists all over the world and I find Dr Zheng as unbelievable. She was quite professional and spent an hour taking tests unlike other places that take one test and your done. I would recommend Dr Zhangto anyone that values their eyes. She is differently the best that I have been to and as I mentioned before I have been to specialists all over the world. Also I like to mention her front desk girls were as good as can be. They were professional and quick in getting you into see the doctor. Andrew G.

Dr. Zhang was very professional and courteous. I felt comforts or in her presence and she took the time out to explain everything she was doing. However, he staff needs better training. One of the receptionist sat and ate a fullmeal at the front desk while she was charting my information. The office also has a slight odor that isn't very welcoming. Nevertheless, Dr. Zhang is amazing.
