He is very gentle with your eyes unlike some doctor is always in a rush and rude. He also speaks many languages. I can speak Chinese and English with him so there's no communication barrier.

I had a pretty good experience with Dr. Chang. It is clear that Dr. Chang is extremely knowledgeable, so I will most certainly return. In the first minute of meeting him, I knew I could trust his analyses. However, I will say that you should make sure to give yourself over an hour for your visit, even if you are not going to be dilated. The front desk was facing issues, which resulted in my not seeing the doctor until 40-45 minutes after I arrived. As I was leaving, the person attending the front desk was yelling at someone over FaceTime, which was a bit inappropriate.

He got the job done, when I needed to be evaluated quickly and thoroughly. Not very talkative, and kind of terse. But again, he did a great job, so no true complaints.

Lacks bedside manner. Would cut off my answers to his questions when I was explaining myself. Was very curt and seemed like he did not care for my concerns. I would not recommend going.

My initial assessment was biased as I waited about 15 minutes despite that I was the first patient but I found Dr. Thomas to be experienced and knowledgeable. He's very comfortably dispelling popular misconceptions and appears, despite 30 years in the field, to be still up to speed on new technologies and updated studies. I find to be rare and a gem. I appreciated that his staff member Helen went through in detail what I would be paying and for what BEFORE I went into my appointment.

I visited him because I have infection on my eye. He answers short, but explained kindly with detail what would caused it, and how I should treat with it. I received the copy of my pic of eye and full text of explanation too. I'm pretty satisfied with my visit. Waiting Tim was a long long cause it was my first visit. I would recommend him :)

He was extremely condescending and unfriendly. When I showed up on time, I was told he was still at lunch - he showed up 25 minutes later and rushed through my appointment. He made a comment about a medication I was on and the eye doctor I had seen before. Very rude. It's unfortunate- the women in the office were so helpful and informative. The doctor should take a few notes from them.

There was some additional paperwork that needed to be filled out despite what I submitted through ZocDoc, so be sure to get there about 10-15 minutes early. While Dr. Chang isn't the most friendly guy, he was very professional and knew what was wrong with my eye within 2 minutes of talking with me. He gave me samples of prescriptions so I could start taking them right away and his receptionist gave me coupons for the prescriptions knowing that they might be expensive. I would go here again and recommend it to anyone!

I've had very thorough eye exams and this did not feel thorough. I felt rushed and I'm pretty sure he never even checked the health of my eye. This was ok to get me through as I adapt to a new city but I'll be looking for someone new for my next exam.

He was fine, annual eye prescription. Worked quickly. Explained when I asked questions. Suggested annual opth visit for 2017. Didn't push upsell of glasses. My two beefs about the visit: long wait even tho I was the first appointment at 830am; and, I had to fill out tons of papers even tho ZocDoc said it would send all paperwork.

I went to see Dr. Chang a few times. The office was clean, the staff were friendly if busy, and the wait time was short. For me, however, Dr. Chang was lacking in bedside manner. He never introduced himself or greeted me in any way. He seemed confident in his exam, but didn't explain anything to me. I had to ask him many questions to figure out what he was prescribing for me, why, and how to use it. He generously provided me with samples of the medication, which I appreciated. Unfortunately, his bedside manner is such that my visits were unpleasant and I will be looking for another ophthalmologist.

The doctor was good but spent less than 10 mins on me. I feel like he glanced at my eye and prescribed me meds and sent me away. Didn't spend any time asking: how are you feeling, or what may have caused it. He gave his diagnosis and moved along.

Doctor Chang was great - knowledgeable and thorough. However, his office didn't receive my online forms, and I was surprised by my final bill. This was likely my fault thought, as I should have spoken up about my treatment options. Recommended!!!
