    I've known Dr. Wang for many years, and she is far and away one of the best doctors in one of the best-staffed offices I've been to. I'm pretty touchy about doctors--having chronic pain while being female is not a recipe for getting taken seriously--and Dr. Wang makes me feel comfortable and listened to. She works with me on different treatment plans and referrals, and she and her staff are excellent at using their online messaging system (I prefer email!) and taking care of paperwork.
