I've been calling all day. I can't get anything more than a voicemail. So I press 0 in hopes of being transferred to an operator since it didn't matter which doc I scheduled with. I get another voicemail. I press 0 again and get transferred to this rude lady that won't even transfer me to a live person. Even after I told her I had done exactly what she was telling me to do. I will be taking my business elsewhere because if scheduling an appt is this hard I'm not interested!

Dr. Ngo took care of my 80 year old mother and did a superb job! She treated her with the utmost respect and cared for her as if she were family. I felt complete trust in her and the staff who did an amazing job! I'm an RN and hold others to my high standards, so I'm not the easiest person to impress, but Dr. Ngo and her staff managed to do just that!

I have been a patient for about three years now. My mother and daughter are patients. This physician is probably the most thorough, conscientious and knowledgeable doctor that has ever treated me. Never too busy to answer any questions. Great office staff too. I highly recommend her.
