in Arvada,Colorado |
My first appointment with Dr.Wong went really well for the first time in a while I have hope that there is something that can be done about fixing my chronic back,neck and leg pain that I've had to live with for over 6 years thank to panorama orthopedics in Golden Colorado
Evergreen, CO |
I knew Panorama but not Dr Wong. my experience with Dr Wong and his associates was outstanding. He took the time to explain my condition and options regarding surgery. I found him to be very patient and caring.

I knew Panorama but not Dr Wong. As a retired surgical nurse I was able to use colleagues who personally knew of his skills in the OR. All feedback was Excellent and my experience with Dr Wong and his associates was outstanding.
Denver, CO |
Very direct and to the point. That's my style, so we clicked. Had a solution, went over the problem with me and we came to a conclusion. Is he a warm and fuzzy? No he's a surgeon and he's there to make me well and enjoy my life again. That's all I care about. But keep in mind I have a pretty cut and dry problem: Herniated disc. If you have something complicated, I can't really review. But if you're someone who likes direct, he's the guy.

Dr. Wong did an excellent 3 level acdf surgery for me, December 2015.
in Denver, CO |
Went to Dr. Wong as a 2nd opinion with my lower extremities being weak and numb. Dr. Wong was very professional and took all of the necessary MRIs and Xrays needed for a diagnosis. He was not quick to jump to a conclusion about my diagnosis, but rather took his time to ensure he correct. I ended up having a laminectomy and fusion on my thoracic spine. About 6 months in and all is well . Dr Wong is very knowledgeable and was always willing to address concerns and questions I had.
