Dr Ng lacked empathy and caring. It seemed he was only interested in receiving cases, which he could operate on.

Dr Ng may be a great surgeon; the results of simple hernia repair in my case was/is not good. The staff is incompetent with regards to scheduling and they do not care. There is never a second chance for first impressions and when the other experiences confirms the first and second etc., then it is likely the norm. Further, I was pushed out of the surgical facility prior to being barely ambulatory (drugs still fully effecting from procedure). A risk manager may not be pleased with that!

This is a rude practice. They will make you go through tons of classes, appt. and testing. Then make you wait two to three months for surgery if you do get approved. Better to go to Duke or Wake Med.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ng's for over 5 years and he is wonderful!

Dr. Ng is straight forward and honest. He gives you the facts of your weight situation (usually not a easy thing to hear) and the options that are available. I believe different steps I had to take before having surgery (nutritionist visits, stomach ultra sound, psychiatrist visit, pre-op support group meetings, etc.) and the continued support following surgery (doctor and nutritionist visits monthly and post-op support group meetings) have eased my adjustment into my new lifestyle.

They will make you jump through many unnecessary hoops. Expect months long wait to get surgery. Unbelievable arrogance by staff bordering on rude and unprofessional. A very disappointing experience.
