Patient Reviews

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

August 13, 2021
Doctor is very knowledgeable and very nice and very courteous. It's just that it takes too long, it took me an hour to be seen or not really. I saw somebody like the helper in the beginning, we decide but she's so busy before I saw her from the time that I came in, it took about an hour. So I got out of the place about an hour and half, Okay. Thank you.

I was very scared to have eye surgery. But my Dr.make me feel comfortable and explained the procedure. After the procedure she did a follow up exam and I just got my last dialation and a clear, good report, all went perfect and I do not need another appointment till next year. I'm so happy with my surgery and my doctor.

Appointment was at 10:30 and wasn't seen until 11:30.
August 05, 2021
Well, when I met Dr, Lisa Yang. She was knee deep in alligators, but I didn't have a problem waiting. She was very professional. I'm very impressed with her manners and explanation of my needs. And what I needed. So highly recommend this doctor to anyone and very impressed again with the doctor. Take care, and have a good day.
August 03, 2021
Dr Yang explains everything thoroughly as she is performing the entire annual vision exam, making you feel very relaxed and completely informed of findings..
July 30, 2021
Dr Yang was amazing and thorough I appreciate all that she did for me during my emergent appointment. Will definitely go back to her if needed.
July 29, 2021
I found that the change of Dr's offices was confusing and ended up with alternate dr. She was quite capable.
July 29, 2021
Procedure was clearly explained. She was friendly and professional.
July 23, 2021
I was very satisfied with the service that I got from PIH and the doctors there. Thank you very much and I will always be with PIH and the staff. Thank you very much.
July 20, 2021
Normally it would not take this long to get an appointment (nearly 3 months), but I know it is due partly because of the pandemic. Dr. Yang has always been a highly respected and great doctor. I am so glad I have her on my side.
July 20, 2021
this was my first time at this office and it was a great experience
July 20, 2021
Detail checking, with patient explanation.
July 14, 2021
You can you can't have the patient is too much waiting. I wait there for 5 hours waiting for my flu to see me
July 13, 2021
My appointment was at 2:30. I was done at 4:30. 2 hours for an eye exam is unacceptable. I understand that she may have had an emergency earlier in the morning, but no one explained that to me until I had waited an hour and a half and was in the exam room and she came in and I commented on how long my wait had been. Although I think Dr. Yang is an excellent physician and I really enjoy going to her, I do not enjoy having to wait as long as I did. Furthermore, I had had to wait several weeks for the appointment. I did not get an appointment within even 1 months time, so that made me also upset, how long I waited for the appointment and then, had to turn around and wait that long to actually get in to see the doc
July 09, 2021
Thank you so much
July 08, 2021
Dr explained everything in terms I can understand, she is excellent
July 02, 2021
July 02, 2021
Although Dr. Yang is a good provider I wouldn't recommend her unless you don't mind waiting forever to see her. I had to reschedule my original appointment because when I showed up they told me that she was about an hour behind schedule. No one had the courtesy to call and let me know she was behind schedule before I showed up to my appointment. When I came back to see her it still took an hour and 45 minutes for her to see me. Then when she finally saw me she tells me I have to come back for a 3rd time to do a visual field test the day before I have a scheduled appointment to have a eye exam. I don't understand why the test wasn't done before I was dilated. I don't have the time to keep going back to the office to finish up an exam then go back the following day for my yearly glasses exam. I will not be returning to this office for my medical eye exam.
July 01, 2021
I felt at the office of Lisa Yang was very professional, Lisa Yang herself Dr. Yang was most professional provided me all the information that I needed answered, all my questions, she's a definite keeper and I would go back to her and recommend her to anyone. Thank you for having such a wonderful person on your staff.
July 01, 2021
As always PIH personal are very professional are their for all questions
June 29, 2021
Explain in simple and easy to understand
June 29, 2021
My appointment was at 1:15, but I was not seen until 2:20 by the doctor. After waiting over 2 months for an appointment, I didn't think I would also have to wait that long in the office. I understand that things happen and schedules get thrown off. But I could have been told by phone that the doctor was behind and to come in 30 minutes later than my original appointment. Dr. Yang is a wonderful opthamologist!
June 25, 2021
Dr. Yang has always been an excellent physician with me, showing me courtesy and respect. She is very professional.
June 24, 2021
I am very happy with the service of the doctor and the people in the office also have an excellent service.
June 22, 2021
The entire experience was smooth and efficient, and I am confident that the care I received is "first class."
June 15, 2021
Yeah, it was a very professional and then extremely well I was very satisfied with that service and the future. I would recommend anyone what you can clued in my family to go to see her. That's all I have to say.Thank you.
June 15, 2021
Professional and good customer service.
June 11, 2021
I was very, very impressed with the service in there, since I walk in there, you know, at the receptionist desk and everything and the doctors, all the other personnel that attended, you know, took care of me. They were amazing and I have never had such a great treatment and that they really explain to you, you know, what was going on. So, anyway, I am very impressed and happy that I had the opportunity to visit your facility there and to meet with Dr. Yang, Lisa Yang. She was the doctor. That's all. Congratulations and I'll go back there for my next appointment.
June 11, 2021
The waiting time was absurd. There's definitely a scheduling issue when you're waiting 1 hour and 45 minutes to be seen by provider. By what staff stated, this common for this office.
June 08, 2021
My appointment was at 3:00 and it took a long time I didn't leave until 5 pm it took to long but I am very happy with dr yang just took too long this time.
June 04, 2021
The doctor is very prepared and confident in her specialty. Unfortunately, the wait is long. I'm sure you spend all your time with your patients. I don't know what, exactly, could be done, because that time is important for the patient, but the waiting is also annoying. I am concerned that since my case is for macular degeneration, there is no medicine that insurance covers, in which case I will have to go to private resources to get it.
June 03, 2021
Dr Yang was professional when she saw me at her office. She explained in details when she examined my eyes .
June 02, 2021
Provider was courteous and caring.
May 21, 2021
Dr. Yang is an excellent, and extremely thorough doctor. My husband was beyond pleased with his previous cataract surgery by Dr. Yang and I am confident of receiving great care with my upcoming surgery.
May 21, 2021
The wait time was much longer than I expected. However, this was due to a couple of emergency visits, so to me, it was an acceptable wait time. Because this is a busy office I often do have a somewhat long wait time, but I don't mind because I always receive the best care.
May 20, 2021
Dr Yang is very Professional, courteous and does a complete work up when she examined me as always. I always feel a great deal of trust and confidence in how I'm treated by her and her staff.
May 20, 2021
The waiting time to be seen by this doctor is extremely long, my appointment was at 3:45 pm and she saw me at about 5:30 pm, and there were not that many people in the waiting room! There is no consideration for the patients!
May 14, 2021
Waited almost 2 hrs to be seen by doctor -- then another 1/2 hr to exit -- can understand doctors falling behind on appointments, but two hours??????
May 11, 2021

May 04, 2021
Everyone there was very nice and respected everything I said.
May 04, 2021
Doctor was very nice and thorough but I didn't get examined by her until 2 hours after my scheduled appointment time.
April 30, 2021
I had to wait too long I had a 3 o'clock appointment and I didn't get out to almost 6 o'clock and sat there most of time doing nothing so I was very unhappy with that. But my wife has another doctor in the same office which I think I'm going to try next time for my eyes. Thank you.
April 30, 2021
Great doctor & friendly & courteous staff. However, doctor was running 1 1/2 hours behind. It would be nice if staff would call you prior to your appointment that day & let you know. Staff only lets you know this once you get to the office & at this time will provide you with an option to reschedule your appointment.
April 29, 2021
I have been very satisfied with Dr. Yang for years.
April 27, 2021

March 23, 2021
I appreciate the fact that Dr. Yang speaks English slowly and distinctly she's very easy to understand. She uses words that I know and if I don't know it she's very quick to explain it to me. I will listen to and I will trust that have good eye health for the rest of my life. I appreciate working with her and yes, I would refer her. Thank you.
