"I recently underwent cataract removal and lens replacement procedures at the Wang Vision Institute, and I cannot express enough how impressed I am with the exceptional care provided by Dr. Guduru (Dr. G.) and Dr. Zimmerman. From the moment I walked into the institute, the staff exuded professionalism and warmth. Dr. Guduru's expertise and compassionate approach immediately put me at ease. He took the time to thoroughly explain the procedures, addressing any concerns I had and ensuring I felt informed and comfortable throughout the entire process.Dr. Guduru's surgical skill is nothing short of remarkable. The cataract removal and lens replacement were performed with precision, and the results exceeded my expectations. The improvement in my vision has been life-changing, and I credit Dr. Guduru for his commitment to excellence in every aspect of the surgeries.Equally praiseworthy is the role of Dr. Zimmerman, the optometrist at Wang Vision Institute."



"I was blown away upon walking into the Wang institute! They have the newest technology and everyone is friendly! Dr Zimmerman was intentional explaining the process during my initial appointment. Cameron did a fantastic job assisting me through paying for LASIK and explaining additional services. Amanda was reassuring during my follow up appointments and took great care of me. Lastly, Dr Jones created a comfortable environment throughout the procedure and was very communicative. I give the Wang Institute a 10 out of 5 stars!!"



"I am absolutely thrilled with the outcome of my smile surgery. Everyone from Dr. Zimmerman to Scott, Ashley and front desk staff all carried a quality of complete professional and friendliness. So was the woman that prepped me for surgery and the tech guy who assisted with the procedure. Dr. Guduru did my surgery and is great. He is exceptionally well informed about his field of work, and can provide answers to any questions that may arise. I will certainly recommend Wang vision Institute to anyone who wants to have an eye procedure."



"I am absolutely thrilled with the outcomes of my smile surgery, which I had done a week ago. When I went to Wang Vision Institute, I got the greatest service possible. I was greeted by a kind and accommodating front desk staff. Everyone from Dr. Zimmerman to Scott and Ashley carried a quality of complete professionalism and friendliness. I don't remember the names of the woman who helped me get ready for surgery or the tech guy who worked with Dr. Guduru, but they were both friendly and skilled. Dr. Guduru did my surgery and is great. He is exceptionally well-informed about his field of work and can provide answers to any questions that may arise. I will certainly recommend Wang Vision Institute to anyone who wants to have an eye procedure."



"Amazing results and an incredible experience. As an EMS Helicopter Pilot my vision directly affects the safety of my crew and the patients we carry. When I began noticing vision problems (cataracts) that were reaching the limit of what my glasses could correct I began looking for options. After speaking with several people in the medical field and other pilots, the clear choice (pun intended) was Wang Vision Institute. Time was of the essence because I was not going to be able to fly once I got the process started and they were able to get me in for an exam and scheduled my surgery almost immediately. I believe it was Scott that performed my initial exam and you couldn’t ask for a nicer guy. Very patient and willing to answer all of my questions. Most of which were “what does that thingy do?” After my initial assessment I met with Dr Zimmerman who explained all of their findings to me and made sure I understood my condition and what my options were. I did not feel that anyone tried to “up-sell” anything or get me to buy anything I didn’t want. As a mater of fact he recommended against the most costly option based on my needs. I knew exactly what I needed and what I was paying for. My lens replacement surgery was performed by Dr Guduru who was more than accommodating and worked with me on scheduling. To say I was nervous was an understatement. The entire staff at the eye surgery clinic put me at ease (the Valium may have helped). Dr Guduru did an excellent job on the surgery and I was amazed at the results only hours after the surgery when the sedative wore off. The worst part of the process was the wait between getting both eyes done. Less than 3 days after having my second eye done, my vision is better now than it has been at any point in my life (20/15). I know results can vary and it is a lot of money to spend but much like a divorce; eye surgery is expensive because it is worth it."
