Dr. Chong is incredibly skilled and knowledgeable. She is able to effectively, quickly, and painlessly look in your eyes and know if anything is wrong. She also takes the time to listen to you and answer all your questions. One time, she even offered to have me come in the evening when the office was closed to do an emergency evaluation when I thought I had a retinal detachment. Friendly, humble, and caring, it is not surprising that she is considered among the best retinal doctors in Texas

Dr. Chong is an excellent doctor. she has been treating my retina problems for 3 years now and without her knowledge and treatment \I would be blind. she deeply care about her clients, taking all the necessary time to listen to problems and gives advice about the problem and the best treatment. I highly recommend her without any reservations.
