Dr. Wong is a brilliant surgeon; however, office visits with him are a nightmare--be prepared to wait well over an hour to see him even if your appointment is first thing in the morning.

Overall our patients rate us 4 out of 5 stars for 'Total wait time (waiting & exam rooms),' we are sorry your wait times were longer. We do our very best to respect our patients' time and keep waiting to a minimum. Unfortunately the nature of our business means there are many unforeseen complications that spring up, we try our best to plan accordingly, but patient safety comes first and this sometimes means a longer wait for one patient while we treat another.
