The best! Saved the eyesight in my left eye when I had an emergency retinal tear with no warning. I’m a nurse, and am also so impressed with the efficiency of his office, getting me through all the testing rooms with precision and speed. Dr. Wong was great, and lasered the tear. My vision returned to normal in a couple months, and I’m forever grateful.

Had my annual retina exam with Dr. Wong and it was professional, and to the point. No signs of wet mac-degeneration from previous visit. Still doing good, taking vitamins as recommended. See me back in a year for annual visit and checking up on my condition.

If you want to be intentional about finding your doctor you can read these reviews or you can do what I did which was to get a second opinion from the doctors and use the time to interview the doctor. Find out how much they’re willing to tell you about their treatment plan, recommendations and expected outcome. I could not be more pleased with how my visit with Dr. Wong went in preparation for my upcoming eye surgery. He answered all of my questions and explained what and why the surgery was needed. On top of that Anna was extremely helpful in getting things set up and explaining the finances of the procedure. I am confident that I am in good hands for the upcoming procedure. Tt

Dr Wong did surgery on my retina one day after it tore. In all my visits his office and staff have been very impressive. It is the best run office I have ever seen. Every person does their job with confidence, is courteous and friendly. It is what health care should be and rarely is. Dr Wong is skilled, caring and makes his patients feel safe. He is an exceptional communicator and explains options, risks and steps to be taken. It is pure and simply EXCELLENCE IN CARE! Bravo!

Dr Wong is an excellent Dr. I like how he takes time to explain how the treatments to my eye is working. He doesn't try to rush me out of the room, but instead takes time to show me with the x-rays how the treatments are improving my eyesight. His assistants are very courteous and very helpful as are his office personnel. Thank you Dr Wong for taking such good care of me and making me feel like I'm a family member.

I met with Dr Wong on several occasions and have not had the same experience as others on this site. The short amount of time he spent with me and the speed at which he wanted to move on to the next appointment was both uncomfortable and disappointing. I didn't feel like he really cared about me and my treatment.

Dr. Wong has performed several surgeries on both of my eyes with outstanding results. I recently had an annual checkup at the 38th street location that was very quick and efficient. The time in building for this appointment was way better than previous visits.

My situation started with the words no one wants to hear. My optometrist asked me "do you have any plans this afternoon?" Then said "when you leave my office don't go home, instead, go see Dr. Wong an eye surgeon." Because he explained, both of my retinas detached the left eye twice that of the right. Dr. Wong detailed how severe the damage was and scheduled me for surgery that evening. I'm still under his care. His S. Austin office staff are professional, courteous, efficient, and effective.
