Old Lyme, CT |
Great doctor. Very professional and friendly.

The nicest, most caring doctor you will find. I keep getting bumps and styes on my eyes and doctor is great about gently taking care of them. I'm scared to death of needles and knives, but she's good about going step-by-step and calming down my nerves. Her nurses are amazing too, especially Paula as she is so nice and pleasant. Doctor Hwang is busy, but she takes the time with me, which I like. I see busy as good, it means that she's good. But I think she's great.

Dr. Anita Hwang is by far the best eye doctor I've ever seen. I absolutely love her and her staff as they're always quick to say hello with a smile. From the very first visit, to my cataract surgeries, to today, Dr. Hwang and staff have always been professional, knowledgable, and caring. I would highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Hwang to everyone. If you want to go to a family atmosphere and actually enjoy your experience at a doctor's office, then go see Dr. Hwang for your eyes.

A wonderful experience with Dr. Hwang and her staff. Her office definitely has a down-to-earth feel, especially with pictures of her beautiful family. Glad I went to see her for a second opinion as a doctor in Groton pressuring me into getting cataract surgery. I have 20/20 vision in both eyes, but he was trying to get me to buy $2000 lenses. Don't go to the doctor in Groton in the dirty strip mall. Dr. Hwang told me that I can wait until I'm ready. I trust that she will do what's best.

No bedside manner. Rushes in and out even with procedures. Looked at me and said well this will hurt and proceeded! Why wasn't numbing drops used? No time to wait as time is money? All about the buck ! Her predecessor was never like this and I'm so glad he reopened his office. The old staff that was highly recommended was removed and replaced by her "relative" who is not so nice either. Both lack customary people skills no matter how educated she may be.

Dr. Hwang ruined my eyes in routine examinations. Shortly after my initial checkup, I started having eye problems. I get blur vision, strained and tired when reading printed materials or watching TV/computer screen. My eyes often feel irritated, itchy, slight pain and teary. The only possible explanation is that Dr. Hwang had put wrong eye drops into my eyes. Perhaps she used the eye drops intended for people with artificial lens (post-cataract surgery) which are too strong for my natural lens?

Dr.Hwang was trusted with our elderly mother to do an eye procedure . We visited the office every week for two years after the surgery ~~~ believing that Dr.Hwang was competent and caring. Several procedures , MANY different eye drops and medications ( contraindicated ) later ~~~ mother was very close to complete blindness . Luckily, we found an extremely competent and caring new Doctor, able to partially correct some of the damage done and save some eyesight .
