Dr. Kang had some bad news to deliver to me today about my eyes' future prognosis. He pulled no punches for which I was grateful. Many punches had been pulled by other doctors in other opthalmology practices over the preceding five years. I felt educated about my rejecting corneal transplant which was performed by another physician. Dr. Kang was neither overly positive nor was he dour and negative. Instead he just stated the facts which happened not to be very good in my case. However the reflection on him is that he is a doctor who does care about the patience he sees.5

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.

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.
