Dr Chang is not arrogant as stated by a former patient. He is kind, understanding and patient. I have been seeing him for 8 years and will continue. Who ever said that must have been asleep during the exam...

I think Dr. Chang is intelligent and knowledgeable. That said, I also think he is arrogant and pretty unpleasant and summary in his estimation of patients. As a professional, I was surprised at being treated as if I were some old lady who was wasting his time.

Dr. Chang is the best. From the time I had my initial exam to the last follow up visit, I found Dr. Chang to be absolutely focused on providing me with excellent care and a resolution to my vision problems. His exams were performed with professionalism, efficiency, courtesy, and respect. As anyone with a lick of common sense knows, eye surgery is a very delicate operation and I can say from my experience that Dr. Chang's skills are irrefutable. His entire staff was great and I recommend him with

Dr. Chang saved my husband's eye after a farm accident that sliced his cornea across the middle, embedding bacteria-laden eyelashes in the process. The eye was in danger of collapse, but Dr. Chang expertly removed those lashes, as well as the tattered lens. We expected my husband would never see again through that eye, but Dr. Chang's treatment procedures restored partial sight to the eye, with no need for a corneal transplant. He is a very compassionate, amiable, gifted surgeon.

Dr. Chang is knowledgable and careful. He is also peremptory in his manner and displays little human kindness. He has been my eye doctor for yearsand I'm sticking with him because he knows what he's doing.

He was inconsistent with his remarks and decisions. His assistant almost seemed afraid of him. He was not easy to talk to. He did not seem to appreciate questions nor want to take the time for explanations.

I am very happy with my experience with Dr. Chang and his staff. He was kind and explained everything to me and my husband. My cataract surgery was very successful. His staff appears knowledgeable and efficient, as well as caring. I have had several different surgeries during my life, and he is the only one I recall coming to me in pre-op and post-op smiling, patting me on the arm and letting me know everything was fine.
