So you need your retina lasered….
I was referred by my Optometrist b/c she noticed my retina was partially detached during my annual exam. From start to finish I received excellent care from Dr. Chang. The office is very well run and Dr. Chang was very adept at putting me at ease. I had my laser procedure to re-attach the retina to prevent further detachment and I had my third follow up appointment today. I left feeling assured that my problem has been dealt with. We’ll do a re-check again in one year. That alone inspires confidence in the care that I’ve received. Dr. Chang assured me throughout the procedure and follow-up’s that I was progressing as expected which is no small thing when talking about one’s vision! I will not hesitate to refer any friends or family members who find themselves in need of someone of Dr. Change’s skill & expertise.

A welcome change in care!
From the moment i walked in, everyone was very nice, the office staff is very organized, i didnt feel rushed, staff was caring and patient. My time with the dr wasnt rushed and he answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable and helped me understand my condition. I was basically in and out without a lot of wait time. (They called me back before i finished my new patient paperwork). My thanks to this office the staff and doctor very very good experience, i highly recommend them!

Dr. Chang at Acuity Eye Institute
Dr. Chang was very pleasant and kind which I always greatly appreciate. The front office assistant was extremely helpful, kind, and is looking into a question that I have and will call me once she has the answer (billing). The attendance that called me back, checked my vision/eye pressure was very patient, kind, & helpful. The assistant that took the pictures of my retinas was not nice or kind. Finally, the assistant that saw me just before Dr. Chang (very blonde), also was friendly and left me at ease.

This office is one of the most efficient operations anywhere! The staff is excellent at their jobs and I’ve rarely had to wait long (unlike most doctor’s offices or other businesses)! Dr Chang is very professional, knowledgeable and DOESN’T push you on added procedures!

I’m so impressed with all of the employees. The staff is friendly and so efficient. I had very little wait time from my arrival to having my eyes dilated to eye test. Dr. Chang was so great, I thought I needed surgery going in and after tests and evaluation he explained my options and I don’t need surgery. He scheduled a follow up to see progress, but I’m so happy his first resolution wasn’t surgery if it wasn’t needed. A doctor you can trust!
