About Me

I am passionate about achieving the best vision possible for each patient that I see every day. Vision is a precious gift. When there is a retina problem, sometimes the solution is simple, and sometimes it requires a great deal of effort. Every patient has a unique story. Some are joyful stories. Some are sad stories. But they all inspire me to want to provide the best care possible.

What People Say About Dr. William Tang, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Earlier in my life, I had a detached retina. Dr. Tang saw me right away and performed surgery on my eye. Following the surgery, I knew that I could see, but the healing took time. This is normal. Dr. Tang was encouraging and supportive throughout this period. Fifteen years later, I still have my sight and never miss my yearly check up. When my husband was found to have a torn retina, I called Dr. Tang's office, and the next day the doctor performed laser surgery, We trust Dr. Tang 100%.

I am extremely pleased with the exceptional care and excellent office experience provided by Dr, Tang and his wonderful staff. I've had several office visits from diagnosis, surgery and follow up and each visit was friendly, on time and professional. Dr. Tang improved my vision greatly and I am very confident and happy to continue under his care.

Dr. Tang and his office staff are very professional, courteous and expressive of their caring for their patients. Dr. Tang himself was upfront and honest in his interactions with me - and I felt very comfortable asking questions of him and interacting with him.

Dr. Tang might be a very competent doctor but he appears to schedule patients so tightly that he is so busy he does not have time to spend time with the patient. His "bedside manner" is poor. I went away today confused about my condition and I am a health professional.

Dr. tang has been my Dr. since he first started his practice. He has done many surgeries on my eyes over the years to save my eye sight. I cannot say enough good things about his talent and care of his patients. He goes above and beyond in caring for his patients!

Dr. Tang deals with stressful situations all day long (it is OK to lose a tooth - it is not OK to lose an eye) and does it brilliantly. His skills as a surgeon are impeccable, his attention to detail is impressive and his staff is highly organized and friendly. He saved my sight, for which he has my undying gratitude, and he could save yours one day.

I have been a patient of Dr. Tang's for over 17 years. I started seeing him for retinal tears and continue to see him. He's had to perform laser surgery several times. He's an AMAZING Doctor! I highly recommend him! He's extremely intelligent, knowledgeable and well versed in his field. He is detailed oriented, does a thorough exam, very trustworthy and answers all my questions. I drive 1.5 hours to see him and wouldn't hesitate to drive 1.5 more!

I've been seeing Dr Tang for the past few years. He has a great office staff and offers top of the line care. He takes the time to not only explain details to you, but also to family members if they are present. After a procedure it is common to get a call from Dr Tang personally later in that day to see how things are going.

Dr. Tang saw me within a few hours of being diagnosed with a detached retina. He explained the seriousness of the condition and explained in detail what my responsibilities would be after surgery. The next day I had the surgery and exactly two months later I was okayed to get my eyes examined for new glasses. I would highly recommend Dr. Tang to anyone who has retina issues. He is very busy but always finds time for all his patients. In addition, his staff is very friendly and competent.

When I had a detached retina in one eye, I was very concerned that I would lose my vision permanently. Dr. Tang eased my fears and his professionalism convinced me I was in the right hands. The surgery was very successful, so when the retina detached in my other eye, I was not worried because I knew I could go back to Dr. Tang and he would take care of it. I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Tang and would recommend him to everyone.

I became a patient of Dr. Tang approximately eight yrs ago. I was referred by my ophthalmologist for a partially detached retina. I meet with D, Tang the same day as the referral and was operated on the next day. DR Tang takes a interest in his patients. He provides a complete exam and follows up with a letter to me and my ophthalmologist after each visit.

Dr. Tang was referred to me by my cataract surgeon when I suffered a retina detachment a few months after surgery. My surgeon called Dr. Tang and left a voice mail, which was returned within 5 minutes and he offered to see me at 8:30 pm that evening. I feel very fortunate that I was referred to Dr. Tang - he is brilliant and performed surgery quickly and expertly - I feel he saved my sight. His bedside manner is challenging; however, he certainly knows his craft well.
