Dr. Wong is great. He can explain things well. I like his direct approach. He even remembered seeing my son 2 a month ago!

appointment was at 9:30 and I received a phone call and email to come early to complete paperwork. I completed all the paperwork both in-person and online prior to the appointment. However, I still did not see the caregiver until 10:45 and he did not come in until I left the examination room where I was waiting for 30 minutes. From there, I was summarily dismissed in 15 minutes. I understand there is a need to see patients that need extra attention, but that should not be an excuse for me to wait in a room alone for that long. If I am expected to complete paperwork and prepare for an appointment, I would expect the same from the person who is supposed to care for my health.

it took an hour and a half to see the doctor from when I arrived for my appointment. Some of that may have had to do with the construction of the treatment rooms and lack of rooms available. That was excessive and it made me miss another appointment. [...]

Dr. Wong was very rude, judgmental, dismissive and condescending. He did not listen to my concerns (one of example of this is that I have issues with my right hamstring, knee and ankle and he didn't even look at them). He was judgmental and gave me a hard time about my FMLA claims. Did not listen to my concerns at all. At one point he asked if I was sexually active and when I answered yes and through further conversation it came up that I am single he said something to the effect of "oh I wont touch that". This was not right. I left the office with a headache because I was so frustrated with his behavior.

This was my very first visit but was impress and happy with my results...Dr was friendly with a pleasing attitude. He seems very knowledgeable and an egarness to help. He ordered test and the referral to a Rhemotalogist right away ... he was very concerned about condition and I really appreciate that

Dr. Wong is scatterbrained. Waited for an hour for him in his office. He forgot he had examined my neck. I had to remind him he did and ask him to add the referral that he said he would add but didn't. When following up with him letting him know about new symptoms, he told me to go to urgent care. He has zero interest in trying to figure out what is causing my symptoms. Recently having having two ER visits, followed up with Dr. Wong. He was the only doctor available in such a short amount of time. And now I'm starting all over again with a new doctor on Friday. Will be staying far away from his practice.

Dr. Wong was great. However, the wait time to see him was horrible. It shouldn't take a patient waiting an hour and 10-15 to be seen by a doctor. The nurse was really great at defusing the situation as I almost [...] left.

My PCP is Dr [...], for whom I have the highest regard. I had been in contact with her re: my concern. Since she did not have any openings, she did provide Dr Wong as a referral.

over the past three to six months, the care at this provider agency has gone down tremendously. [...] It is almost impossible to schedule an appointment with your primary provider within 2 months, and the new reception staff are extremely rude and belligerent. I will be looking to change my provider when it is time for open enrollment.
