My experience with Dr Ngakeng was not good. She removed the cataract but the lens that she inserted in my eye did not have the proper formula. After surgery I was never able to see clear again. The worst part is that after my surgery she saw me once and then next time I went for check up she was not there, had left the office and did not send a letter communicating that she was leaving. I think her communication with the patient is not good.

I had a great experience with Dr. Ngakeng. She was very pleasant, knowledgeable and took great care of my eyes. She also called me the day after to see how I was doing after surgery. I am recommending her and the Woolfson Eye Institute to anyone who needs an Ophthalmologist.

The staff was really nice especially Melissa and Renita. Melissa made me very comfortable from the start and then Renita fisnished by explaining the surgical process to me. Dr Ngakeng was amazing she took her time to talk to me make sure I had all my questions answered and even called my son to explain my medical condition. Loved her
