If you were to talk with the ER staff and doctors who initially looked at my eye and referred me to Dr. Wong, you would find my anxiety level was off the charts. And, I am sure it was noted in their report. However, my experience at Austin Retina was so professional and calming that I now have no qualms about having further treatment to my eyes should I need it. I have always said I would never have invasive eye surgery even if it was necessary because I have been so nervous about anyone touching my eyes but, after my positive experience with Dr. Wong and his staff, I would turn my fate over to them in a heartbeat. And, by the way, my eye is healing at an amazing rate. Thank you Dr. Wong
I was referred to Dr. Wong about four years ago with less than one fourth vision in my left eye, he immediately assured me that he might not restore all my vision but would come close. He met that promise. Dr Wong light up the exam room when he enters making you feel secure and his skill and knowledge. I was previously treated by another Retina Specialist so I can sy that he is truly the best Austin has to offer.
He saved the vision in my right eye and he is a good Doctor, that is all that needs to be said.
