I have nothing but great respect for Dr. Wong. He will answer and all of your questions and is very honest. I have been recommending him to everyone I know. However, the front staff is the worst front staff I have ever dealt with. There has been a few times where I wanted to stop coming to this location because of front staff. They lack compassion and the understanding what the word patient care means. If they don't care about the patients then they are in the wrong field.

Dr. Wong performed an ORIF on my very damaged elbow in January 2016. Dr. Wong is an outstanding physician and surgeon. He did an awesome job and was very professional, explained everything and was so nice and respectful to us. In my opinion he is one of the best and I wouldn't hesitate one minute to be under his care and will always recommend him to others.

I never felt as if Dr. Wong listened to what I tried to explain to him. He listened and seemed like he never heard me. He was arrogant and very condescending. When I asked questions, he rolled his eyes at me and glared without responding. I will never go back to this doctor. Why should I pay him to be condescending to me? When I did go into surgery, I felt like cattle being herded in and out. Wasn't a great experience with him.

The phone system is a nightmare, if you don't get a person on the phone you will not be given a call back if you leave a message. If you get someone and they say they will call you back, I can assure you they won't. If you end up having to go to the office in person to try to get ahold of anyone, all the people who can help you will be suddenly unavailable. This becomes a huge issue if you have any complications after a surgery performed by one of these doctors. You will be on your own.
