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.

Quick consultation without any explanation about the treatment he's giving you. Doctor Chang was not nice and helpful but people in his team were nice and gave good explanation about the insurance reimbursement.

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!!!

They made me wait 45minutes (and redo all the material I filled out online) for less than 10 minutes with the doctor who didn't even take the time to listen to some of my symptoms, just told me in too young for glasses and all my headaches were result of overuse on computer screen. He then proceeded to tell me I had an astigmatism in both eyes but barely explained what that meant...

Dr. Chang is a reassuring professional who provides you with the information you need and is generally willing to go a bit more in depth if you ask him. Thankfully, I haven't had any serious eye issues, but that means I can't comment much on Dr. Chang beyond simple check ups. My only issue with his practice is that, because Dr. Chang is the only doctor in the office, you might find yourself waiting half an hour to be seen, even though he has a very good support staff.

Wait time was great, only about 25 minutes...but maybe that had something to do with me being rushed out of the office so quickly. The doctor spent no more than 5 minutes with me. I had a lot of questions that went unanswered and I feel like he didn't spend enough time to be sure of his diagnosis of my eye issue. He seemed annoyed at any questions I did ask and overall he was just kind of cold, uncaring and all about business. If you have a simple issue and are okay with being seen as just another number then Dr. Chang may be okay for you.

I went to see Dr. Chang because I had an eye irritation in my left eye. After he saw me for this, it was clearly understood that we were done. He went outside and came back and asked me if I was getting the routine annual eye exam, I said no. He also knew I was visiting NYC, I see my regular eye doctor for the routine. I had to see an Ophthalmologist because I had a very specific issue with a specific eye. Then he goes outside and comes back and prescribes 3 other tests. I realized that these tests were completely unnecessary after we were done because, the tests were done on both eyes and it had no bearing on the issue of my left eye. I asked him why we did those tests, he said to get a baseline, and I reiterated that we just discussed that I was visiting NYC. I asked him for the results of those tests, he was hesitant to give them to me, until I was rather forceful. I wouldn't NEVER go to him or recommend him.

Despite receiving many confirmations from Zoc Doc, I was told that they did not have my appointment on file. After waiting for 45 minutes they were still trying to confirm with my insurance, but were calling the wrong company. It was incredibly annoying and I would not recommend this place to any new patients.

They didn't take my insurance to get glasses. They wanted to charge me just to get a prescription to get glasses. They shouldn't take any part of medicaid if your not going to do a full job.

Dr Chang was fine, but the head receptionist was awful. She was screaming at the other employees the entire time I was waiting. She said sarcastically to one of them "can't you read" and yelled at another to get off the phone when he was scheduling an appt with a patient. It was extremely uncomfortable to sit in the waiting room and listen to this, and she was very unprofessional. I will not be returning back to this doctor.
