2018 Top Doctors: Pierre Pang, M.D.
In these times of healthcare uncertainty, Dr. Pierre Pang still practices the old school style of care, methodically and skillfully identifying individual problems and finding solutions for even the most complex disorders affecting a patient’s vision. Equipped with state-of-the art scans, ultrasound machines, cameras and lasers, he offers advanced eye care to his patients.
This retinal specialist successfully treats such potentially blinding diseases as retinal detachments, diabetic retinopathy, and age-related macular degeneration. He also manages general eye disorders, including complex cataracts needing special treatment for astigmatism. For patients unable to see far and near clearly but no longer wanting to wear glasses, he offers state-of-the art femto laser cataract surgery with multifocal intraocular lenses. Dr. Pang will treat patients affected with wet macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and vein occlusions in his office with laser surgery and intraocular injections to visually rehabilitate their eyes.
Dr. Pang recently began a twice-a-year community ophthalmic assistance program free for the uninsured and the indigent. For those unable to afford advanced eye care, Dr. Pang and his staff donate their time at his two clinics to examine, diagnose and treat eye diseases as well as dispense eye medications free of charge (much of it generously donated by several drug companies). Free refurbished glasses are also dispensed to those in need. The glasses are graciously donated by Dr. Pang’s very satisfied femto laser cataract surgery patients who no longer need them. By improving their eyesight, these uninsured and indigent patients are very grateful to Dr. Pang for improving their quality of life.
As a faculty member of the John A. Burns School of Medicine, he has published numerous peer-reviewed articles in prestigious ophthalmology journals, lectured at many regional, state and international eye meetings, and has been awarded the distinguished Rhett Buckler’s Award for the best surgical video by the American Society of Retinal Specialists. An internationally renowned eye surgeon, he has pioneered innovative techniques to manage dislocated intraocular lenses, ophthalmic anesthesia, and techniques in the management of complications of diabetic retinopathy.
Always attentive to patients’ needs, Dr. Pang takes pride in his courteous and polite staff who respond to patients’ questions and ensure they fully understand their conditions and available treatment options. Dr. Pang cares deeply for his patients’ well-being and goes the extra mile in making certain that their eyes receive the best care possible.
