San Jose, CA |
After three years my right eye deteriorates and on July 12 decided to see Dr. George Yang and he suggested to have a right eye cataract surgery. With the help of Jennifer Pelayo, she scheduled my surgery on Aug 14. The fear was change with excitement because I have done it before and the waiting is over. All the staff knows what they are doing and they made me feel relax. Dr. George Yang installed Tecnis Multifocal lens on my right eye, now I have 20/20 vision and even use for the computer.

The office staff are indifferent, condescending and not very discreet. I was left embarrassed and left with a desire to bolt for the door. Dr. Yang is very knowledgeable, informative and funny. I like him, not his staff! I am not sure if I will go back next year.

Dr. Yang performed cataract surgery in February, 2017. He answered all my questions patiently and thoroughly and explained all options until they were clearly understood. Dr. Yang is familiar with the latest medical technology and treatment options. I am very grateful to Dr. Yang and his experienced staff for a positive experience resulting in an excellent outcome.

I delayed getting surgery because I was afraid, but it is one of the safest surgeries around, especially when you get it done by someone of Dr. Yang’s World-Class caliber. I couldn't be more pleased with the results, going from 20/50 to 20/20, driving, reading without glasses, seeing vivid colors and everything crystal clear once again. If you or your relatives need help in this area, I would highly recommend Dr. Yang. THANK YOU Dr. Yang and his staff (Stacey, Andy) for giving me my vision back.

Dr. Yang is one of the best doctors I've had the pleasure of meeting. He is bright, articulate, and communicative. Puts you right at ease. On the other hand, I find some of the staff to be cold, indifferent and condescending. This doesn't reflect so much on Dr. Yang, but probably on his office manager.
