    Good, helpful service

  • Sep 27, 2019

    Yes, I think that my experience there has been awesome. I am thrilled to be able to see out of my left eye. Didn't think that it would be something that could ever be somewhat corrected since it's a pre RK. He spends a lot of time with me, answers my question. Yeah, I, you know, he's just a really great person and so is the staff and they always get me right and I don't have to wait forever because I come from Eugene and I'm excited about getting my next eye done, so that's it.

  • Aug 29, 2019

    Dr. Huang is an absolute expert. It is a shame (for me) that he is refocusing more on his research.

  • Jul 26, 2019

    Dr. David Huang is both... he's an expert at what he does, but he's also a very communicative person when... when just dealing with patients, so whenever I go and see him I have many, many questions, he answers all of them effectively, and in many cases he anticipates questions and he gives me deeper answers. He gives me coping mechanisms for things that can't be fixed and he tells me what can be fixed. I have the highest esteem and regard for Dr. Huang.

  • Jun 28, 2019

    Hey there. I think it was an awesome experience. I would recommend him. I feel really confident that this is going to heal and I'm going to be able to see it. I just think the staff is wonderful. Thank you so much.

  • May 31, 2019

    I waited a long time in the lobby past my appointment time to see Dr. Huang, but I'm really really glad I did. He corrected diagnosis that I've been made by my optometrist there Dr. Louis who thought I was far sighted, but Dr. Huang correctly said I'm near sighted. I'm very grateful for that.

  • May 30, 2019

    Dr Huang is not only a brilliant researcher and caring provider, he has a great sense of humor. Dr Huang helps give me courage to know my eye condition is being treated, and I am in the best possible hands, with him and the OSHU team. I really appreciate his staff. Thank you.

  • May 11, 2019

    I completely enjoyed my time with Dr. Huang and he was so... gave me so much real world information that I could use in what has been kind of a lifelong challenge for me with my vision and so, while we talked about my medical situation with my eyes a lot, we also just talked about practical things, daily use of glasses, how the sunlight affects my eyes, the effects of my radial care autonomy. So I really felt like I learned and grew a lot in ways that we're so helpful for me in my day to day life. I know... I just got the impression that he really knows what he's doing. He took time to explain everything to me. He took time to tell me in real terms the condition of my eyes and shared things along the way. I found him to be also personable and just really helpful. I really... I enjoyed my time. I I got a lot out of it and I couldn't recommend Dr. Huang more highly than*

  • Apr 05, 2019

    Yeah, I was there on, I guess, the 2nd. I felt very, very heard and I've been going through all this stuff with dry eyes and the pre RK and he spent a lot of time with me and I am really looking forward to coming back in. Right now, we're treating my dry eyes and kind of dealing with the insurance company to get the restasis so that they understand that it is a medical condition. I still haven't got that that, but the other drops that he recommended, I'm doing a lot better. And yeah, I think he's phenomenal. Really, I...I waited a long time and I'm happy to have been able to to do that and I get to be there on the 23rd. So, yay for me. Thank you.

  • Apr 03, 2019

    Dr. Huang is great. He answers all my questions and listens carefully to my concerns.

  • Mar 04, 2019

    Unprecedented care and quality. Dr Huang sets the gold standard in eye care. I have never felt more cared about, and hopeful for retaining my vision, helping my children afflicted with the same genetic condition- I am so great full.

  • Feb 16, 2019

    On time and professional. Answered all my questions and provided a comprehensive exam.

  • Jan 17, 2019

    Always excellent

  • Jan 11, 2019

    He is an extremely conscientious, caring, compassionate doctor and the only reason I'm hopeful to have my vision restored is because of my confidence in him and his compassion and great care that he gave me at my visit. My whole family is grateful. We have several patients in our family that are his patients as well. Thank you.

  • Dec 13, 2018

    I really liked Dr. Huang and all the people who helped me.

  • Dec 12, 2018

    I appreciate his competence and skill as a care provider. I also appreciate that he is so mild mannered and understated for someone with his resume.

  • Nov 29, 2018

    I do not have enough praise, to adequately express my gratitude, respect and appreciation! The Dr is wonderful. The staff is wonderful.

  • Nov 25, 2018

    Dr. Huang is a consonant expert professional and my family and I have great confidence in him.

  • Nov 23, 2018

    extremely thorough and competent

  • Sep 27, 2018

    He wasn't very kind and explained my condition very clearly. Very helpful and positive experience.

  • Sep 19, 2018

    Staff very professional. Dr. Huang very sharp and personable. State of the art equipment.

  • Aug 29, 2018

    I was seen promptly upon referral for an acute condition of the eye. The doctor determined the clinic?s hypothesis was incorrect and I am improving today.

  • Aug 23, 2018


  • Aug 16, 2018

    Well, my experience there was very good. I didn't have any problems with anybody, they were all courteous, and seemed like they were up to speed on everything and helpful to answer any questions which is very important to a patient, and that about covers it.
