The kind of doctor you want if you might as well ask the barista at y your local coffee joint what's wrong with you. He's a "take two aspirin and call me next year" type of doctor. He took over the practice of my husband's doctor, so my husband switched over to him. Dr Wong didn't think anything was a a possible issue. Recurring boils? Some people just get those. Here, have an endless refillable supply of antibiotics and just take them when boils occur. Meaning he was on antibiotics 70% of the time. Later after seeing a "real" doctor, we found out it was MRSA. He was given the correct antibiotics and they cleared right up. Lots of leg swelling? Take some lasix. Oh the lasix doesn't do anything? Keep taking it and if you insist on an ultrasound I'll do one. No, don't see anything. (The next doctor sent him to a vascular surgeon immediately, and the surgeon found an old clot that Doctor Wong had missed.

And did I mention that he doesn't regulate *any* of the medicines? He put my husband on medicine for blood pressure but when the blood pressure didn't decrease he just kept him on the same thing. He never monitored meds and he never talked about changes that could be made for good health.

As far as the office staff: all calls go directly to voicemail. If you work in an office in a 9-5 job you can't always respond to personal business. If I need to make a doctors appointment I want to call and make an appointment. Not call and leave a message so they call me back at an inconvenient time. What kind of doctor runs his office like that?!

Finally I begged my sweetie to change docs. He did, and now I know when he needs care, he's getting the care he needs!

Dr Wong has a very good practice. He's very professional in answering all your questions or concerns. He's also a funny man. He's got a great front office and usually runs really smooth. He also extends himself in making sure he follows up with you on your condition. He is one of the few doctors that really takes the time to make sure you are doing well. I couldn't be more happier with his business.

He is a very professional doctor. Good bedside manners. Never rushing you out. of his office. Takes his time to inform you of sickness/medications and answer questions. Very courteous to building employees on the street or cafeteria. His office is rather nice and cozy. The staff is really courteous, kind, and friendly. They always acknowledge you when you arrive at your appointment.
