Experienced doctor & friendly staff

My grandma had surgery done by Dr. Fong a few years ago. She had problem walking so her only hobby was watching TV. Because of her cataract, she was unable to see the TV clearly. In fact, she couldn't even see her grandkids when they come to visit. After she had her surgery, she was able to see so much more. She was afraid to do her 1st eye in the beginning. But after she realized how much better she was able to see, she requested to do her 2nd eye ASAP. It was life changing for her. She is much happier now and she can finally watch TV.

This review is for Dr. Fong and his medical abilities. If there is a skill that he has mastered, it is performing eye surgery. He is an absolute perfectionist when it comes to actually providing medical care. My 90 year old grandfather came to him with extreme blurred vision and had Dr.Fong perform cataract surgery. Post surgery, my grandfather is extremely pleased with the results. He claims that he even feels young again because he can finally see so well. There was great aftercare instructions and he had no issues with recovery. If you want a smooth operation with no problems, I would definitely recommend Raymond Fong. He has done something very wonderful for my grandfather and our family is very appreciative of his efforts. Great work!

Unprofessional staff

Called for an appointment and was told to walk in. When I arrived at the office in Chinatown (which I live in Whitestone) and I'm currently pregnant, the staff told me that I should be here before 1pm. This is news to me because clearly I was NOT told over the phone which I have to be here before. I told them at the office that I came all the way from Whitestone and I'm pregnant and WHY THE heck they didn't tell me this before I came!!! Very unprofessional. I also work in Weil Cornell myself and this is not the way we treat patients!!

Disappointed

GREEDT! GREEDY! GREEDY! All this doctor cares about is $MONEY$, $MONEY$, $MONEY$. About 20 years ago when I was still young, poor, and unemployed, I went to see Doctor Fong for a discomfort in one of my eyes. He took a quick look and determined that it was an ingrown eyelash. It took him only a few seconds to pluck it off. Even though I explained to him at the time that I had no insurance, he still instructed his assistance to collect $100 from me in $CASH$. What a greedy and heartless doctor ! In the early 1990's, $100 was a lot of money - especially to a recent college graduate who is still struggling to be on his own. SHAME on him.
