Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tang "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."

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.
