Great

I have been seeing Dr. Huang for 17 years. He has provided me exceptional care, and sent me to specialists when needed the same day. I do not notice the wait time. I never feel hurried - I feel like I am in good hands. I am not sure why the other reviewers feel the way they do - it is a small office. One doctor that is highly popular may be the biggest issue. I am just happy for the exceptional care and treatment.

No time to meet with you!

Expect to wait at least 30 to up to 60 minutes for your appt which lasts about 5 minutes. He is already out the door as he is talking to you. Doesn't give much thought to solutions. He might be your guy if you need cataract surgery, but why subject yourself to that? Of course, I left.

One Star

Dr. Huang made an inconsistent diagnostic statement, then becomes defensive when asked for clarity, as if one should not expect a clear diagnosis. That's his job. He is rushed all the time--I mean, rattles off everything he sees in the scope, then gets up to leave without even asking if you understood what he just said. Yes, gets up and opens the door to leave while your are grasping at all the medical lingo he just threw at you and what is the actual prognosis to be concerned about? That's just poor and unacceptable patient care. I also noted that my medical record states that certain things were stated by him to me and they were absolutely never stated, such as warnings about medications, and dilation refusal. I was not even asked about having a dilation and the record states I refused and was warned about refusing it. That never happened. There were other false statements on my record about conversations that had never ensued. The benefit of putting up with a person that has a poor bedside manner and lack of communication skills, is to at least receive a quality medical diagnosis. He's not a good diagnostician based upon my experience. He might have skills in other areas, I cannot speak to that, but I definitely will put my eyesight in the care of another ophthalmologist who has more compassion and concern about patient health, and can communicate medical issues effectively. Doesn't he realize that people leave the office and have to make important decisions about their eyes and need accuracy and guidance? Apparently the next person waiting is more important than the one already in his office. What a disappointment. I have to begin all over again but I am not risking my eyesight with someone too rushed to discuss my care. I'll find a better doctor. Goodbye and good luck!

crooked doctor

The doctor told me that I had glaucoma, he put down the wrong eye with the astigmatism and the front desk said they accepted my insurance and they did not. I immediately got a second opinion and found out that he was wrong about everything. He was referred by my parents and, come to find out, and told my mother that she was in the early stages of macular degeneration. It was most likely my visit that alerted my parents to this doctor's utterly dishonest practice. This is a greedy man with no honor or scruples--stay away
