Make an Appointment


Dr. Yang knew she wanted to be an ophthalmologist after discovering “a love of science and microscopes” at age 15.  She fosters open, honest patient relationships to be able to give the same kind of care she would to a family member.

A longtime Whittier resident, Dr. Yang likes playing the piano and indoor skydiving in her free time. Founder and president of the New York Medical College ballroom dancing club, she is also a member of NYMC Arrhythmias, an acapella group, and speaks Spanish and Taiwanese.

I had an extremely long wait after the initial little test and then for my doctor to see me, it was an hour just sitting. I think something should be done to make the visit, which is an annual visit more expedient would go more quickly. I know that eyes had to be dilated and that took a little waiting time but it was much too long a wait.

Yes, this appointment was made for me after I saw Dr. Chen regarding a follow up visit to an ophthalmologist. No one explain to me at the time that they changed the appointment to make it with the Dr. Yang, that she runs an hour to an hour and a half behind seeing patients. So when I showed up for my appointment and was taken into a room after I overheard a conversation that she runs an hour to an hour and a half behind, I asked when I would be seeing for my 3:30 appointment and I was advised that she was just being her 2:30 appointment at quarter of 4. I think it's inconsiderate, and I didn't stay for the appointment. But I think communicating with your patients ahead of time that the doctor doesn't run on time is important, because I would not go to a doctor that is running consistently an hour to an hour and a half behind. They said she's thorough, but I would hope

Dr. Yang is a wonderful doctor. However, I was advised in the beginning. She was running at least 45 minutes late. Well, it turned out to be an hour and maybe 10 minutes late.

The front staff, the technician, and the doctor were all amazing.

This particular appointment on December 2nd was unique in that they did not have computers. So the staff was having to take everything by hand and then input it at a later date. Dr. Yang had a different computer that she was using, but the staff did not so I was not able to schedule my appointment. However, today I called the office I did not wait for them to call me, because I didn't think they would do it in a timely matter, and was able to schedule my appointment 4 months from now. So I like Dr. Yang and her staff very much. They're very busy and I think she's very patient with her patients.

Everything was very good. The problem was the first time you called me, I tried to answer and I couldn't get the phone number because I didn't have all of my equipment to write it down. And that's about the only thing I have to say. Dr. Yang is excellent. I've been using her for number of years, and I'm very satisfied with my whole experience. And I thank you very much.

Other than being thoroughly knowledgable in her field of expertise, Dr. Lisa Yang is also personable, approachable, and engaging. I would overwhelmingly recommend her to my friends and family.

I like this Eye office, but, the wait is too long. My appointment at 1:30, got there at 1:15 and did not get done until 4pm. Too long of a wait to be called.
October 19, 2021
Nice courteous staff. The appointment took way too long ? 2:45 appointment left at 5:20 !

They don't answer the phones. It's a big problem for me.
October 12, 2021
I was very upset because I had to wait 2 hours to see Dr. Yang, and I think they can improve on that. I think they over booked.
October 12, 2021
Everything was fine and professional, the only downside was I was there a lot longer than expected.

I answered the last question wrong. I would be highly likely to recommend Dr. Yang. She's wonderful. She's a great doctor. She takes her time. She's articulate. She's excellent in her field. Thank you.

Yes. My mother saw Dr. Lisa Yang yesterday, and she's very, very thorough. She explains everything, I was very impressed. Very nice, and the office staff's very nice, and the girl that did all my mom's eye testing, super sweet girl, too. So, we had a good ... really good experience. Thank you.
October 06, 2021
I was very pleased with the staff and doctor, explained everything and acknowledged all my questions

Yes, that is no free parking for the patient or for the visitor. So that's a bad thing because it's $3 after half an hour, and no visit can finish out in half an hour. It's more than half an hour. So it has to be a free parking for the patient or for the customer. Okay. Bye.
October 01, 2021
The whole visit took 2 hours, which seemed long to me for a routine (but thorough) check-up
