Both Dr, Wong and all his staff are very kind and caring, Very professional too. Dr Wong was recommended to me by many different people years ago, and I trust his judgement completely. He takes his time with his patients too, and explains options. I have been very, very pleased both with him...more

Good Doctor-but didn't give me options for meds after my cataract surgery...inflammation lasted much longer than necessary! Horrible staff-do what they want, treat patients however they like- very unnecessary behavior! They seem on the defensive ALL the time!
