      Dr. Wong is very professional and knowledgeable doctor. I would recommend him to my friends for retina treatment. I am very happy with his treatment of my condition.
      in Jarrell, TX |
      Dr. Wong was instrumental in saving my eye, performing emergency surgery, after an eye injury. He explained in detail the damage caused by the injury to my eye. He also explained in detail, everything he would be doing to save that eye, and what I could expect during that procedure. During each follow up visit he explains his findings in a comprehensive and understandable manner. He has a great personality, being very likable with a kind demeanor, complimenting his professionalism.

      Dr. Wong is kind, considerate,and personable. Both my husband and my mother have been seeing him for a couple of years now and we love him. Dr. Wong has managed my mother's macular degeneration and my husband's retinal issues with significant knowledge and expertise, staying on the forefront of research. His staff is very friendly and efficient so we very rarely have to wait more than a few minutes to begin the preliminary assessments in preparation for seeing Dr. Wong.
      in Austin, TX |
      Positive. Explains issues well. Tries to answer all questions, explain options for treatment, odds for recovery, options. Friendly and positive demeanor.
      in Burnet, Texas |
      He has treated my eyes for over 2 yrs & my vision has remained stable. As far as I am concerned he has performed a miracle. He not only is a brilliant Doctor he always relaxes his patients and gives you the feeling he sincerely cares about you. I feel blessed to have him for my retina MD
      in Lakeway, TX |
      My experience with Dr. Wong and his staff was excellent. All preliminary tests were completed prior to my examination by Dr. Wong. Test results, both past and present, were displayed via computer screen in the examination room with Dr. Wong and me. After an additional examination, Dr. Wong explained his findings and answered all questions. Couldn't have had a better experience.
      in Austin, TX |
      Dr. Wong is truly awesome! Very, VERY in-depth examination and evaluation.
      in Round Rock, TX |
      I have been seeing Dr. Wong for 7 years for treatment for AMD. He is extremely kind and gentle and I trust him completely. I could not be more satisfied and highly recommend him.
      in Austin, TX |
      I've been getting injections from Dr. Wong on a regular basis for "wet" macular degeneration. I'm happy that, thanks to Dr. Wong and his staff, my condition has stabilized. The staff I've dealt with are always very friendly and courteous, and go out of their way to accommodate my severe hearing loss. Dr. Wong has always taken the time to explain the procedures and answer all my questions. I recommend Austin Retina to all my friends.
      in Comfort, TX |
      Dr. Wong is an excellent diagnostician, and will get to the root cause of a strange problem. Before I found Dr. Wong, I had been misdiagnosed by multiple doctors throughout Texas, some of whom were quite good. Dr. Wong figured it out in 5 minutes, got me straightened out after 2 years of misery and wasted effort, and I've been in good shape ever since. Can't recommend him highly enough. He is absolutely centered on making the right call, and supporting his patients' work to keep their vision.
      in Austin, TX |
      I have had retina problems since 1998 and had found an excellent specialist in Dallas. After moving to Austin it became increasingly difficult to commute and I finally made the change to Dr. Wong. After being under his care and undergoing several different types of procedures I have full confidence in his ability and judgment.
      in Austin, Texas |
      Dr. Wong is an amazing doctor! He provided great advice and care to me as his patient! I appreciate his kindness and expertise! Thank you for helping me Dr. Wong??
      in Austin, TX |
      My regular eye Dr sent me to Dr Wong to check to see if I had a retina tear. I had two visits with Dr Wong and he was awesome- very caring and knowledgeable.....thank goodness everything was fine with me in the end. But I do know that if I ever have any issues I will call on Dr. Wong.
      in Austin, TX |
      I can't be more satisfied with Dr. Wong. He is extremely knowledgeable and genuinely care about his patients' welfare. He has been very helpful in treating me, he has a stellar background and experience. Finally, his bedside manners are inpeccable. I would highly recommend Dr. Wong.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
