Review of Dr. Chang

- |

I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Peter Chang, he is extremely knowledgeable in his field and his explanations are easy to understand. He is very professional and personable. He determined my immune system was "acting up" and was able to treat it, allowing me to receive the eye surgeries I was requiring with successful results.

Review of Dr. Anesi

- |

Simply put... Dr. Anesi is the reason I can see my beautiful daughter every day. I come from a family with a very complicated genetic autoimmune disease, part of which is uveitis. Dr. Anesi not only fully comprehends the disease but also makes me feel at ease knowing I’m in the best of hands. He’s innovative in his approach to treatments & outstanding when he has performed surgery on my eyes. He is extremely thorough during my exams and always explains his findings in a way I can clearly comprehend and patiently answers all my questions. When I was pregnant he worked with me to develop a contingency plan for treatments should they be needed that would keep my baby & I safe. Boston is known for having some of the best medical care in the world. Dr. Anesi is one of the doctors that makes that statement true.

I was told I would go blind ! I had a rare eye disease . That was before I met dr Foster. I was crying he asked me why I said I did not want to go blind . He told me he could help me that I wouldn’t with treatment. Today I am in remission. See well . Thank to dr foster and his team . Highly recommend!

Review of Dr. Chang

-none |

Dr. Chang is the best doctor I've ever had! Definitely worth traveling to see him, even if you are not super close to his offices! I was diagnosed with recurring uveitis a few years before moving to the Boston area but it wasn't until I met Dr. Chang that I felt like I really understood the condition and was in the hands of someone who had a systematic strategy to do something about it. He took the time to make sure I understood the plan, which made me feel back in control and less terrified each time I had an episode. He's also the only doctor I've ever had who remembers who I am, beyond just my medical history. For example, he remembered I would be leaving Boston in the fall and made sure to recommend new doctors for me in NY. I feel so, so fortunate (and relieved) to have been able to see Dr. Chang for the past few years and to make progress on figuring out what’s wrong with my eye. Thanks for everything, Dr. Chang!

Review of Dr. Chang

- in MA |

It was wonderful to walk on Monday and see the many shades of green on the trees, lawns and all the beautiful blooming flowers. No more clouds in my eye; I cannot tell you how thankful and grateful I am to you for giving me back normal sight. I didn't have any pain after the surgery and did as instructed. Thank you for the great care and concern you take with your patients. What a great surgeon you are and what a wonderful experience at MEE; great all the way around.

Review of Dr. Chang


Never had a doctor spent more time helping me understand my condition or educate me on potential treatments than Dr. Chang. He is always thorough in his exams and always offering me time to ask questions. His staff is extremely friendly and helpful as well. If I could have rated Dr. Chang and his staff higher than 5 stars, I certainly would! I highly recommend him!

Review of Dr. Chang


I have been seeing Dr. Peter Chang now for about 2 years. He is the first doctor to accurately diagnose and treat my retinal condition. I saw others who told me nothing could be done as my vision deteriorated. After the very first visit I knew I finally had the right one. He does an outstanding job of explaining the condition/problem, the treatment options, and the timeframe to complete. He is incredibly personable taking any time needed to allow me to ask questions to fully understand how he is proceeding. I have never been to a doctor that is so compassionate and understanding as him. He is truly top notch! I’m so glad my optometrist referred me to him

Review of Dr. Chang


Dr. Chang is amazing! I would highly recommend him. He was extremely thorough in evaluating my condition and took the time to accurately communicate to me what it was and the steps/procedures needed to improve it. He helped relieve my anxiety and kept me calm and informed every step of the way. He always addressed my concerns and symptoms with the utmost care, competence and diligence. In my opinion, there is no one better!

Review of Dr. Chang


There are not enough words to describe Dr. Peter Chang. He is an excellent ophthalmologist with superb bedside manners and compassion. I tell everyone how great he is. He saved my eye. From the first time I saw him I was so impressed and still am. I told my husband about him and he switched to him. That day he pulled his stool and sat down and explained my condition and my treatment options in an honest and clear way and allowed me time to process the information and ask questions. I consider myself very luck to have him for a Doctor . I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a superb eye doctor.
