SHC Patient, May 2015

This provider tries his best to get back to me with my questions that I have for him.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr. Chang was very thorough explaining to me what has been happening to my eyes, and also clarified my unknown concerns with a plain language. This was my first time having an eye doctor clearly having me understood. I appreciate Dr. Chang's courtesy and language very much.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Very good.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr Chang handled everything professionally, kindly, & clearly. I had 100% confidence in his abilities to do the job to the best of his abilities

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

This was a bad experience. Instead of describing my options to me the doctor told me what option he would provide and I had to ask about other options. Then, he warned that other options cost more money. I believe I should have been presented with all the options and be able to make my own decision, including paying out of pocket for a more expensive option.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Good experience
