My family has a question about Dr. Leung's ethical. Dr. Leung rendered un-neccessary procedures to my mother. My mother is 61 years old and retired. She has chronic Sjorgren for years and been using Restasis for years for her dry eyes. Four months ago, she had experienced light sensitivity, floaters, flashes of light and it was getting worst every day. My mother's primary eye care immediately referred her to see a retinal specialist and told her if she is loosing her vision then she has to go to the emergency room immediatetly.

My mother and my father called Dr. Leung office and booked the appointment on 08/10. They did not know that Dr. Leung is not a retinal specialist who specialized in treating problems related to retina. My mother and my father came to the office with the referral letter stated that she needs to see a retinal specialist due to her light sensitivity, floaters, flashes of light which got worst now.

On the day of her appointment, Dr. Leung did not consult about her retina at all. Dr. Leung did punctual plugs, sold her some ocusoft, recommended her to continue restasis, recommended eyelid hygiene and sent her home.

Same day, after reading Dr. Leung's report which was not stated anything regarding to her retina, her primary eye care called our home and checked with my mother about her light sensitivity, floaters, and flashes of litght. She continued experiencing all of these symptoms and they got worst. Her primary eye care immediately booked the appointment with the San Diego Retinal Specialist and had her come in right away. My mother's retinal right eye's posterior vitreous detachement but no breaks-THANKS GOD, and chorioretinal atrophy both eyes. She will continue follow up with the retinal specialist. As of today, after several follow up with them for the last 4 months, my mother's vision is stablized.

One week later, we received 2 bills from Dr. Leung's office: first bill is $286.55 and second bill is $473.12. They charged us total $759.67 for un-neccessary procedures which was rendered to my mother by Dr. Leung. We called the office and we did talk to Diana, office manager, asking for discount since my mother is retired and had already spent lot of money to treat her retina.

After several conversation and demanding her to answer why Dr. Leung kept my mother at the office and did render un-neccessary procedures, not willing to refer my mother to see any retinal specialist when my mother came to the office with her referral letter in hands? What if my mother's visions was lost and being blind?

Diana got mad and now blaming on us that WE ARE THE ONE who booked the appointment. We told her that my mother and my father are old and retired, they did not know the different between general ophthalmologist and retinal specialist. My sister wrote a letter to Dr. Leung and now they gave us 20% off on our bills.

My parents made a mistake and came to a wrong place for help. My parents feel cheated by being old and retired. Dr. Leung lost his integrity by keeping and rendering un-neccessary procedures instead of refering my mother to see her retinal specialist. My mother can be blind by his ignorant and un-ethical.

We will never recommend Dr. Leung to any family members or any friends. Is money that powerful? Money can make people lost the integrity? Apparently....

Dr. Leung performed performed the wavefront lasiq surgery on my eyes over 5 years ago. I had been seeing Dr. Leung's office for regular eye check ups for several years and finally got the nerves to asked about the lasiq surgery. I was extremely hesitant in having this performed, however heard great things about Dr. Leung and his staff. They were not pushy at all and they told me everything upfront. I went back and forth and finally decided to do it. With their comforting & understanding approach to my nervousness I got through it and couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. Now, 5 years later my eyes are still just about perfect!!
