Dr. Stephen Hwang is a butcher that runs a cataract mill. Anyone who goes to see him will be told that they have cataracts. He performed cataract surgery on me and my iris prolapsed through the incision. He cut a large part of my iris off and destroyed the seat which my natural lense was seated. He said there was nothing to that could be done. I went to another opthamologist in Scottsdale and he sutured my iris back together. My eyesight has never been right since. I should have sued him!

I made an appointment 2 months ago. I gave my insurance info at that time and specifically asked if it was accepted and it was confirmed. I got a phone call today at 1:00 PM (the day before my appointment ) to tell me my insurance would not be accepted by Dr Hwang. I am so irritated that you waited this long to inform me of this. My doctor referral will be expired by the time I can find another doctor. I find that very unprofessional.
