WELL VERSED AND EXTREMELY EXPERIENCED. I DID NOT BELIEVE I WOULD GAIN FULL USE OF MY HAND, BUT I DID. DR WONG SHOULD ALSO BE A PLASTIC SURGEON, MY EXTENSIVE SURGERY SITE IS VIRTUALLY UNDETECTED.
in Taft, CA |
Excellent Doctor! After a fall I was referred to Dr. Wong, through my Primary Care Physician, Dr. Tang, in Taft. I cannot Praise Dr. Charles Wong, enough! I saw Dr. Wong, on a Friday and my surgery was scheduled for the following Tuesday at Mercy South West. His office staff was Outstanding as well, No sitting in his waiting room as if you have been forgotten, and the same Outstanding treatment when I was taken to an exam room. Dr. Wong, is very thorough In All He Does~Highly Recommend.

Although Dr. Wong is always busy with tons of patients to see, he never makes me feel rushed or fails to give me all of his attention. During my appointments, he gives detailed explanations of everything and answers all of my questions. After dealing with issues in my arm and wrist for 2 years, and 2 other orthopedists, he was able to figure out exactly what my problem was! I had a few major, complex surgeries on my arm and wrist, and each was done to perfection! Wish all doctors were like him!

Dr. Wong is an amazing doctor. He listened to our concerns and was very honest with the procedure that need to be done. I really like the fact that he had patience to talk to my daughter and calm her anxiety. I am thankful for his expertise and overall friendly nature.
