San Diego, CA |
Unfortunately his office staff is completely incompetent. When the Dr. finally responded after the 10th phone call and 6 faxes - he said this was the first he heard about the problem. Additionally, when dealing with the office staff they have no idea what they are talking about - ever. It seems that they can only do very simple and routine tasks. If you have a question like records release - they can't answer.

I've been with Dr. Leung for 20+ years and he's saved my eyesight more than once. He's taken care of my mother's eyes due to her diabetes and one of my longtime friends with LASIK. Recently, he implanted crystal lenses due to cataracts and my eyesight has never been better! No other ophthalmologist would I ever trust more that Dr. Leung.

Dr Leung performed cataract surgery on me in April 2014. At that time I chose to have the crystal lens in each eye. This was quite a decision for me as they were pricy. For the first six to eight months I questioned my judgement as to whether I made the right decision. Now, two years later I am so happy with I the path I chose as I have 20-20 vision and don't need glasses. I am a 75 year old woman and believe; when you have your health you have everything.

I was visiting from out of state when I experienced an eye emergency on New Year's Eve morning. I found Dr. Leung on the web and called the office. From the very first hello until I left the office absolutely every aspect of my visit was impeccable! I am so grateful they were able to see me on such short notice on a holiday. When I move to San Diego, Dr. Leung will be my choice for all my eye care needs!
