    First visit with Dr Wang today and was fortunate enough to get in to see him quickly (My UCI GI guy can be a two month wait) after calling for an appointment and navigating the sometimes intimidating "refer me to the right guy" UCI switchboard system.. Early morning appointment, got right in. Associate took initial info (med student/intern?), referred me to x-ray, then Dr. Wang came in. He is very personable, he listens, did thorough range of shoulder motions test, gave me some preliminary treatment and exercise recommendations, and even treated a separate hip issue I'd had for years. Am I cured? Too soon to tell, but the office visit, his diagnosis, prognosis, explanation of the probable condition, and potential future steps including recommended therapy exercises was great. I'd been in pain for two months with a probable frozen shoulder and for years with the hip issue so left this morning feeling heard and cautiously optimistic. Very highly recommended.

    I made an appointment with him because he is the only cartilage and hip specialist in the OC area and I'm glad I did. He is courteous, knowledgable, and explains things clearly. Thank you Dr. Wang
