    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.
