    I have been to the Eye Institute several times, and every time I am made to feel like a valued customer. They take time to listen to my issues, and take time to try to solve my problem. I really appreciate their personal care.

    Very happy for your attention and kindness I would like to live more close, to be able to be more often for the treatment of my daughter but with pleasure I would return.

    Michael Chiang is a very good doctor who cares about punctuality is important, you know, and we had our appointment to 2:30 and we sat there for almost an hour just to come back and tell us to repeat the same thing for the previous appointment. I just feel like that could have been solved better, and I feel like my son is progressing and do much better. Hey think something else. but if only you know what how far to come with me so.

    We had to wait a very long time, with our preemie/newborn, for the exam. We Arrived on time and weren’t seen by the doc for an hour and a half, with no updates along the way from staff/nurses as to any train for the delay. Normally we are patient people but this was too much, as it interfered greatly with pumping and feeding routines.

  • Aug 10, 2018

    Wait times are consistently too long. I've waited for appointments for over 2 hours.

  • Aug 08, 2018

    It was good for the most part; however, Dr. Chiang's response to his exam on our baby left us a little frustrated. While doing the exam, he'd give us updates that sounded like he was concerned for her eye health. As the exam progressed, we got more and more worried as he did more advanced testing. By the end, he said he was "mostly happy with the exam," which worried us as to what he might say was wrong, but then he told us everything was perfect. The language he used to describe the exam the entire time worried us from start to finish, and left us feeling a little shaken. He simply wasn't very good at comforting us as patients, even though we were seeing him for potential blindness of our newborn. We won't be going back to Dr. Chiang again.
