What People Say About Dr. Margaret Chang, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Chang was great during my surgeries. Her bedside manner will be topped by none, she takes the time to answer questions and explain what the surgery consisted of. I had a torn retina 4 times in 4 different places and when I was ready to give up she kept working and saved my eye, I'm to the point now where I have about the same vision in both eyes and am ready for glasses to be completely back to where I was before the surgery or even better. I would highly recommend Dr. Chang.

Dr. Chang has been taking care of my step mom's Wet Macular Degeneration for the past 1 1/2 years. She is very kind and caring. She puts my stepmom at ease every time. It has always been a pleasant experience.

Dr. Chang did my retinal surgery last year. I couldn't ask for a better doctor! She is wonderful! Dr. Chang and her team made my surgical experience the most positive anyone could ask for. Thank you Dr. Chang.

Surgery was fine but she has a horrible bedside manner & refused discuss an issue. A week after surgery when I told her my vision was now blurry and my night vision was gone she wouldn't talk about it & said I must have already had that condition since her surgery on me was fine. How insulting to suggest I wouldn't have noticed blurry vision and lack of night vision. I teach astronomy and certainly know my vision. Her assistant confirmed my vision was worse. She would not, and sent me away

I received great care from Dr. Chang for torn retinas and then later a macular hole. She was very honest in explaining both what was knowable and uncertain about my condition, so I felt I could trust her judgment. Her timely and very skilled surgery achieved for me a better-than-expected outcome. The office is an amazing high-volume operation, and the time with Dr. Chang is always brief, but this is a very small price to pay for first-class expertise and keeping my eyesight intact!
