We have been coming to see Dr. Whang for almost 5 years now. She performed surgery on my oldest daughter. I wouldn't go anywhere else! She is so loving towards my family when we come in for our appointments. She is gentle and wise too. And Mary, who pretty much runs the front, has been so friendly. As a mom, I have developed a relationship with Dr. Whang (and Mary) and I enjoying seeing them when we come into the office.

Dr. Whang is the BEST! She is a godsend for my son. We started to see Dr. Whang when he was 2 for strabismus. From the very get go she was friendly, informative, and truly had my son's best interest at heart! He eventually needed eye surgery & from start to finish things couldn't have gone any better. My son is 5 now, & we still see her on a regular basis. I would recommend her without hesitation! It's hard to find someone to TRUST, especially when it comes to the care of your child! We Love her

I have been beyond impressed with my experience with Dr. Whang and her office staff. Dr. Whang was recommended by CHOC, my pediatrician, families at my school and now I know why! She is extremely knowledgeable, takes the time to answer every one of my questions and makes me and my son feel comfortable at every appointment. My son started wearing glasses at 2 years old and had eye surgery at 5 years old for strabismus (eye crossing). Now, my son maintains perfect alignment thanks to Dr. Whang.

I would highly recommend Dr. Sarah Whang. She is kind, personable, and extremely knowledgeable regarding her field of study. She has performed surgeries on both of my daughters, ages 5 and 10. My oldest has an issue with reoccurring Chalazions, so I have been to Dr. Whang's office a few times. She is always sharing research on options I can try for home treatment. With her most recent treatment suggestion working WONDERS. The decision for surgery was always left up to me. She is a wonderful dr.
