Dr.Shang is a very Sweet Person who made me feel very comfortable as a new patient. She really takes the time to get to know your medical history and takes the time to explain your diagnosis. If your looking for a Specialist opthamologist i would highly recommend Dr. Shang
I never write reviews, but felt compelled here. After researching ophthalmologists, I picked Dr. Shang based in large part on her education and training (Stanford & UCLA). I had a condition that was not resolving, so I went to see Dr. Shang. She took the time to clearly explain the condition, and answered all of my questions regarding treatment options. A minor procedure resolved the situation. She even called me to follow up. I could not be happier, and wished that I had seen Dr. Shang sooner. I will recommend Dr. Shang to family and friends.
