Dr Yang is simply the best in all aspects and the clerical staff is efficient and courteous.
September 13, 2022
I just wanted to say that I my answer to, I couldn't set up my appointment when I wanted to was because I'm supposed to see her again in the year and I couldn't set it up for year. So that's, that's, that's it. I have to call her in about what it be for 5 months before the appointment but that's about it. Everything else is great. My first 3, I should have been a 4 so I don't know if you can change that. Anyway, that was a I was very pleased with the appointment. Thank you.

Dr. Yang is extremely patient and thorough and she listens to all your complains. She's very organized and detail oriented. I would not go see any other ophthalmologist but her.
August 31, 2022
I had to wait 4 months to get an appointment. I need new contacts, no one said anything about getting an appointment for that.
August 30, 2022
Waiting for your, waited too long for my entrance to see the doctor.
August 25, 2022
Doctor was running behind schedule due to some unforeseen circumstances. However, her assistant spent his time explaining everything to me and making sure I was taken care of while I waited.
August 23, 2022
The waiting room was very crowded. The 6ft rule was impossible to follow. Although I was seen for preliminary assessment within 15 min of my appointment time it was about an hour before I saw the doctor.
August 19, 2022
I am very pleased with the prompt, efficient care provided by this doctor and the staff at this officed

August 03, 2022

Great explanation of exams given to me.
July 27, 2022
Very good ?
July 26, 2022
I have no complaint. She is a talented opthalmologist.
July 26, 2022
Everything was great. One problem I realized is they talked to fast when you're trying to follow the instructions. That's the only thing, if they slow down. That would help. So we can get the directions correctly. Thank you.
July 26, 2022
I have recommended my coworkers to PIH eye care. 3 coworkers have had eye exams this year! =)
July 26, 2022
Lisa Yang is a very exceptional ophthalmologist. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Dr. Yang was very professional and thorough. I feel in good hands with her.
July 21, 2022
Everyone was personable and efficient. A well oiled machine.
July 19, 2022
My appointment was at 9:30. We waited over an hour in half to be seen by the doctor. Why on earth do they over book? We were told the Doctor was behind!! We finally left at 11:45.
July 19, 2022
Dr Yang is a great physician. However, I had to wait over and hour to see her. I was in time to my appointment. This happens everytime I come in, unless I am able to secure a an early morning appointment.
July 14, 2022
I liked how the doctor treated me. She was very kind and she has treated me very well and they took care of everything for me. Thank you very much.
July 14, 2022
Ever one was very nice and helpful and easy to understand ? ?
July 13, 2022
Always treated professionally and staff are kind and friendly. A great team!!
July 13, 2022
Dr. Yang is awesome she is so caring thank you
July 12, 2022
The medical care of the staff was very good. The doctor's attention was good although she was very rushed. What needs to be corrected is the wait. I was waiting for the doctor for an hour inside the office. Hopefully next time the waiting time will be less.
July 08, 2022
Dr Yang is kind, very thorough, very knowledgeable. She doesn't make you feel rushed, answers all your questions, yet doesn't waste time. She's a 10?
July 07, 2022
This is a very busy office. In spite of the long wait to see the provider, usually about an hour wait, I consistently receive excellent service. It is worth the wait.
July 05, 2022
I'd like to tell everyone how wonderful Dr. Yang is, I have gone to her for probably the last 10 years. I have found her to be most professional and she's very good. And she does take her time with her patients and answers questions. I think very highly of her and I respect her and I would recommend her to anyone.
June 30, 2022
Hi, I really like the office. I think Dr. Yang is amazing. The problem is it just takes too long to get an appointment. I had to, I kind of got them to give me a cancelled appointment, but it was going to be like 5 months to see her, and it's going to be like 2 months, just to meet with the optometrist. It would just be nice if they, you know, could have earlier appointments. Thank you.
June 30, 2022
Dr Yang was over an hour behind, she is always behind, that really bothers me. I was there for over 2 hours. However her knowledge, her thoroughness and kindness, makes it worth the wait
June 28, 2022
I saw Dr. Yang for the first time and I loved her.
June 28, 2022
my appointment was at 3:30 i left there at 5 pm Long waiting time
June 07, 2022
Staff and Dr Yang were very attentive, polite and professional. I'm very grateful.
May 27, 2022
They treated me very well. I was very pleased and I recommend them. So everything was very, very, very good and I am very happy. Okay.
May 27, 2022
Wonderful staff
May 25, 2022
I think you could improve on the wait time, because usually it's 2 hours and she's always in a rush. And that's, that's all.
May 12, 2022
Dr. Yang answered all my questions and gave me valuable information to deal with what to expect with my eye surgery over the next few days.
May 11, 2022
Both the doctor and the very friendly staff, the very attentive doctor, very explicit, explains everything that you ask her and even what you did not ask her, she is always giving you the correct answers. I really like the doctors in very good work.
May 10, 2022
Ms. Yang always conduct yourself in a very professional manner. She's extremely thorough. She listens to my questions. She provides the answers. And I won't change her for the world. She's incredible. Bye. She's an asset to PIH.
May 04, 2022
Yes, everybody was fine. I like Dr. Lisa Yang. I liked her to everybody there was very, very courteous and nice and I would recommend except one of the receptionist was very mean and rude. She the, she took my payment for the discovery, but she was very, very rude. I asked her to three times do I need to fill out any information. Can I pay for my payment? And she said you sit down and wait until I call you twice? She told me that I was trying to be polite and then all of sudden just before they called me in. She said okay you need to sign here and give me the payment before they call you in the back. I said I'm going back before I fill out the information. That's the only part that I would think that need Improvement. But the provider was excellent. Thank you.
May 03, 2022
(name removed) knowledgeable gives you all the information you need I trust you completely true she's very thorough
April 26, 2022
I appreciate when I go in I feel very comfortable with Doctor & Office Staff. Everyone is so wonderful. Thank You
April 22, 2022
Starting with the people upfront, mostly professionally I'm, I'm sorry, all professionally courteous and pleasant then the technicians professionally sound, they knew what they were doing. The gentleman that helped me was very, very detailed in what he was going to do and mostly Mrs. Lisa Yang. I think she is a professional doctor and I trust her with my eyes and my site, and I'm going to recommend my wife to go see her. Thank you.
April 22, 2022
This is one excellent doctor that I went to. Very patient, very nice, very thorough. She was excellent. The best doctor I've ever been to taking care of my eyes. I would recommend her to my enemies. She's that good. Very good doctor.
April 22, 2022
Dr. Yang is very thorough, reviewing the results from the last visit before addressing the results at this visit. I appreciate the continuity of care.
April 21, 2022
Dr. Yang is very thorough and takes good care of my eyes. I did not wait long this time because my appointment was right after lunch. I've learned to make my appt. early morning or right after lunch because in the past I've had to wait a long time to be seen if it's much later than that. I have back problems and cannot sit anywhere for a long time.
April 19, 2022
Dr. Yang is a very nice doctor and so are her staff, they took me right away, it was not long, yet, after I went thru all the test I did have to wait awhile for her to come and c me. I was there almost 2 hours, better than last time. Last time was 3 to 4 hour's.
April 19, 2022
The office staff is very nice and Dr. Lisa Yang is very professional and kind.

March 22, 2022
Show empathy and concern toward patients, great doctor.
March 22, 2022
Everyone is very courteous, but to get an appointment you have to book at least three months in advance.
March 15, 2022
Dr. Yang is a very professional but extremely good for her patients. She tells you exactly what you have. And if there's any problems. She's just very very thorough. And I would recommend her highly. Thank you.

I am very satisfied with the attention from the staff at the front desk, all very friendly, all the assistants of the very friendly doctor, they all have a very friendly attitude, very friendly.

February 22, 2022
I am (unreadable) and the service they gave me in that place was very good, I can recommend it to my family, friends and neighbors, good night and God bless you. Thank you for existing. Thanks (unreadable)
February 22, 2022
Dr Yang is a great dr
February 22, 2022
I have been treated by Ms Yang for several years. I have never been seen anywhere close to my appointment times. yesterday, we got in to see here 1 hour and 20 minutes after our appointment time. That will be the last time. We have now switched to another Doctor.
February 15, 2022
Only good things can be said about Dr Yang and her staff. Courteous, caring and timely says it all. Great job to the entire team from the front desk, technician and Dr Yang. 100% satisfied!!
February 15, 2022
Thank you for being patient with me and for being helpful.
February 11, 2022
The doctor was very professional and caring and her staff as well and I surely would recommend the doctor to my family and friends and I look very forward to seeing her because she tells me about my eyes and how good are how bad they are and you know, in a way that I understand.
February 08, 2022
Did not see Dr Yang. I was 2 hours waiting & still not . I left. Staff called next day. I have rescheduled for late afternoon appt. I felt disrespected.
February 08, 2022
Dr. Yang is very good. This procedure I did, it was great. But most...sometime, she's really late to see patients. That's the only thing that bothers me, but she's thorough. I do like her a lot.
January 28, 2022
I love the doctor very much. He explained every little thing that goes on, and I really appreciate that, and I feel she is very thorough and I just...I just like her. The reason I marked the 2 for the delay was that she had had emergency earlier. So, I was there for 2 1/2 hours, but it just couldn't be helped, and it all worked out anyway. So that's...that's all I can say. Okay? Thank you for your call. Goodbye.
January 27, 2022
She was very professional and she answered all the questions. She was very thorough. I would highly recommend you to anybody in my family and my friends. Thank you.
January 27, 2022
Dr. Yang was great ay explaining everything she was doing and listened well.
January 25, 2022
I can't think of anything that could be better. To be honest with you. I'm just telling you the truth. Everything was great. As far as Doctor visits go. I'm not one to like to go to doctors, but this was great. Thank you very much.
January 21, 2022
I loved the way the doctor, the ophthalmologist, treated me, congratulations, doctors, to those hospitals (unreadable).
January 21, 2022
She is excellent physician, I'm very satisfied with her service.
January 20, 2022
She is a real professional, I like her
January 20, 2022
I went there to receive laser the "doctor" did exactly what the referring doctor from yesterday did and then rescheduled me for another time BIG WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY
January 11, 2022
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.
January 11, 2022
Hi, Dr. Yang is very efficient, knowledgeable, compassionate and caring. And I would highly recommend her to any of my family, relatives or friends and her assistants will also very pleasant, helpful and patient as well as Dr. Yang was very patient with me and very happy with this experience. Okay. Thank you very much.
January 07, 2022
She did outstanding job with me. Very professional and real, real polite. Thank you.
January 07, 2022
That staff was very friendly and very nice and the doctor was super, I would give her a 20 not a 10 she's great, she knows my problem and she took care of it.
January 07, 2022
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
December 23, 2021
Dr yang provides exceptional care.
December 23, 2021
I feel safe and secure about my exams on my vision of my eyes I feel very comfortable and safe with the doctor thank you
December 22, 2021
Dr Yang is very thorough and a wonderful physician. Would recommend to others.
December 21, 2021
Everybody was helpful and showed respect. I was happy. Alright. Thank you.
December 10, 2021
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.
December 10, 2021
The front staff, the technician, and the doctor were all amazing.
December 07, 2021
Every respect was perfect except that I have to wait for over 2 hours before I was able to meet with Dr. Yang
December 07, 2021
She is a very efficient and communicative professional. Excellent Spanish. You have to wait a little longer, but it's worth it. Thank you.
December 07, 2021
Warmth and professional staff.
December 02, 2021
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.
November 30, 2021
Dr. Yang is knowledgeable, professional, and patient.
November 19, 2021
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.
November 12, 2021
Dr. Lisa Yang is wonderful. I look forward to my appointments with her. She is easily one of the best physicians I have ever had. I completly trust her with my care. She has helped me with my eyes tremendously.
November 05, 2021
Had to wait 1 hr after appointment time to be seen. I'm usually the late one.
November 05, 2021
Excellent professional.
November 03, 2021
Dr. (unreadable), I have been with her for several years and she is always excellent, her attention is incredibly good, she is communicative, she is kind, everything is a happy person, she always explains all things to her. I am very happy and I have recommended that doctor to many people that I know and who are currently going there. I congratulate you yesterday for this class that has many thanks.
November 02, 2021
Dr. Yang is an excellent doctor. I trust her completely. She is thorough, knowledgeable, caring and personable. The office staff was very helpful and welcoming.
October 21, 2021
Great employee, very helpful. Great doctor, whatever you need. They're very helpful with what you need. I will recommend it to my family. Thank you.
October 20, 2021
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.
October 19, 2021
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 !
October 15, 2021
The only problem I had was waiting for Dr. Yang 1/2 hour was too long.
October 12, 2021
Always a good experience with Dr. Yang.
October 12, 2021
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.
October 08, 2021
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.
October 08, 2021
She is very thorough and informative. She is great!
October 07, 2021
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
October 05, 2021
October 01, 2021
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
