Stamford , CT |
Very affable, knowledgeable, thorough. Explains what is going on with my eyes well. Most of the exam was carried out by an assistant, although the doctor reviewed the results and took a look as well. Long wait between initial tests/exam and when the doctor came in to see me.

I am new to the area, and found myself with a eye problem at 4PM on a Thursday. I called one of my few friends here and was given a recommendation for Greenwich Opthalmology. I called, stated that I was not a current patient, and described my problem. A very helpful receptionist took my information and scheduled me for 8:15 the next morning. Although Dr Tsong is a retina specialist, he treated my infection with concern as if it were a retina detachment. He even gave me his cell phone number.

Dr. Tsong makes you feel as though you are the only patient he has - he never rushes and always answers questions.
New Canaan, CT |
Dr Tsong is the best doctor you may ever encounter in your life. He is knowledgeable, thorough, attentive and available to his patients.

I took my mother to Dr. Tsong because she was diagnosed with Macular Degeneration by her eye doctor, but he wasn't clear on how advanced her macular was and didn't know what the future would be, except that she may go blind. It didn't feel right. Dr. Tsong was incredible. He was able to tell us where she is in her macular and assured us that being blind was HIGHLY UNLIKELY. And that if it advances, there are things he can do for her. He is kind and brilliant. We love him; he is her doc now!

Stamford, CT |
Dr.Tsong is very friendly, professional and just the best ophthalmologist I have been to.. I would highly recommend him.
Norwalk, CT |
He is very respectful and is always asking if I'm OK and if I have any further questions. He took a lot of time with me to make sure that all tests done were accurate. I was diagnosed borderline glaucoma but he assured me everything is under control and that testing does not need to be redone for another year! I would highly recommend Dr. Tsong to anyone. Furthermore, my two children will be seeing him in a couple of weeks... that's how much I trust him.
Bedford, NY |
My experience with Dr. Tsong has always been excellent. He is open, approachable and friendly, and most importantly, very succinct and skilled. For his level of competence and expertise he is humble and attentive, and fully explains medical conditions in a comprehensive way. His office is a well oiled machine. They are available, efficient, and the technology is state of the art.

I was extremely pleased by the courtesy & professionalism of the staff with whom I interacted with. I LOVED the efficiency of the process and the timeliness of my appointment. The facilities are attractive with a calming decor. Dr. Tsong is always an exceptionally kind & cheerful physician with, of course, stellar credentials!
in Norwalk |
Absolutely recommend Dr. Tsong. I had a very complicated and on going problem with my retina and he was always thorough, conscientious and realistic. He is a top Doc in his field. He and the practice are very thoughtful to patients medical needs and fears. On the administrative side, I never waited for hours on end like I did when I went to another highly respected Fairfield county specialist. When you are a person who works it's a very big deal to spend half a day waiting to see a doctor.

Greenwich Ophthalmology has hit its stride in their new space. Appointments run smoothly , and taking the various eye related tests occur in a timely manner as there are enough rooms. It is hard to imagine they survived in the small space at 4 Dearfield. I am a long-time patient here and consider my transition to Dr. Tsong excellent. Greenwich Ophthalmology will stay abreast of new technology and practices under his watchful eye.

I was referred to Dr.Tsong a few years ago because of a possible Plaquenil Toxicity. He was very thorough, professional, knowledgeable, and kind. About 2 years ago, I left his office after an examination, when he called me at home, regarding my field vision test results. He told me that he wanted to do further research and then told me...if I you were my sister, I would stop the Plaquenil. I can't tell you how much that meant to me! I did stop the medication and I have been fine. Great MD!

I was new to the area and was experiencing symptoms of an eye emergency. I found Dr Tsong?s office and called in after hours to leave a message regarding my symptoms. Even though it was late in the evening, he quickly returned my call to talk through the situation and accommodated me into his schedule first thing the next morning. Dr Tsong not only has stellar credentials, his exams are more detailed than other similar ones I?ve had, and he pays a greater amount of attention to your well being.

His office is very clean and run efficiently. I didn't have to wait long and he explained things very well.
