From the time I walked into the Doctor's office until I departed, everyone was exceptionally nice and professional. I was seen quickly, all the issues were addressed for my upcoming surgery and all the admin items were addressed and taken care of. A very positive experience!! I was impressed!!

I have been going to Dr Kang for more than ten years and before that Dr Clinch. It has always been a good experience and I have great respect for Dr Kang's ability and he has a great personality. I have always been treated well by the various technicians in the office. For the first time this morning I waited more than an hour. At the 45 minute mark I approached the desk and asked what the problem was because the other person I came to the office with had a later appointment than I did and was called first (Early, in fact). The people at the desk fumbled around and told me that I would be called. I still waited and at the 45 minute mark I stopped on of the techs bringing another patient in and asked when I would be having my 10AM appointment (it was 10:40). She was rather shocked and told me she would be right back and I was ushered in within a few minutes.

I was taken back right at my app't time; A number of tests were done - the equipment is very high tech and they test for a variety of eye conditions (which I appreciate since I have a chronic eye issue); After this was all done - I was seen by Dr. Kang within a few minutes. He and the entire staff are excellent and very thorough.

Well. I love coming to visit with Paul Kang. He is awesome and the rest of the staff as well. The reason I showed up today was because I received an email stating that I was due for an appointment. So I booked the appointment, feeling that it was time that I get my eyes exam again and the office knows when I am do for an examination. I arrived to the appointment and I was kindly told that I did not need this appointment and the appointment conflicted with my work schedule. I believe this could have been avoided. I might be the one at fault but when I receive an email stating that your due for an appointment, I respond believing it's time. Please advise me what to do next time I receive an email stating I am due for an appointment. Thank you for listening.

Good visit, consistent quality time with Dr. Kang. Only problem was wait time; they seemed to have overbooked. Also, the assistant kept calling me "buddy" which is fine for a dog not a senior citizen.

Dr Kang is thoroughly professional in every respect. His cateract surgery has made a huge difference in my life now that I dont have to fiddle with glasses every minute of the day. My husband researched his credentials which are excellent and I have always instinctively trusted his judgment. I saw two other surgeons before him but chose Dr Kang for which I will be eternally grateful.

RE electronic sign-in. It's a bit frustrating to provide the same information for each visit. Is there no way to just verify previous information? ZocDoc was really good for setting up the appointment and getting reminders. I was very appreciative of the convenience.

First-time visit. Office: very clean, large, modern, in an easy-accessible building in Vienna/Tysons with ample parking, all up-to-date modern tech check-in process, making an appointment was exceptionally easy on ZocDoc (made appointment Saturday on ZocDoc and was confirmed Monday morning), office staff at the Vienna location was awesome! I waited 30 minutes to be seen, as it was a busy Monday morning. I didn't mind, as it's a nice environment, plenty of magazines, and nice people. Doc's assistant did a quick intake, was kind and accommodating with the dilation drops, extremely thorough, and super nice. Dr. Kang is an extremely competent doctor. He diagnosed my issue immediately, answered my questions without having one foot out of the door, despite how busy he was Monday morning, and I left feeling confident about my care. What more can you ask for?

I was very unimpressed by Dr. Kang. I don't have any major eye problems but had not had an eye exam in 10 years. He spent MAYBE 30 seconds with me and when I asked him a question as he was trying to scramble quickly out the door he seemed irritated. It made me feel like I needed to apologize for taking up his precious time. Very unsatisfactory experience with him and will not return.
