Dr Wang performed an Fundoplication for my chronic acid reflux GERD. Dr Wang is highly professional, takes time and explains, but mostly projects this confidence in what he is doing which gives much needed reassurance. His bedside manners are impeccable and his aftercare very thorough and effective. I highly recommend him for any surgery you might be considering. His back office, specifically Laura is extremely efficient and effect. Great experience all around.

I highly recommend Dr. Wang as your surgeon. He recently removed my gall bladder using robotic surgery. He puts you at ease and takes away any nerves you may have. He is simply brilliant in his field. Best of all, he makes me laugh...awesome personality!

In January 2019, Dr. Peter C. Wang met with me regarding some issues I had with a diverticulitis flare up. For the next several months, we met several times and discussed next steps. He was thorough, personable, addressed all concerns I had and I felt I was in good hands. After the surgery, he followed up with me, gave me all the pertinent information regarding the process and recovery. I recommend him for surgery. A very good doctor.

I can without reservation recommend surgeon, Dr. Peter Wang. He has performed 2 surgeries on me over the years. Some years ago, it was for gall bladder and most recently for an inguinal hernia. I arrived in the morning and was home by the early afternoon. Dr. Wang used robotic assisted surgery technique. After surgery I had only three small one-inch incisions… no stitches. The incisions were glued perfectly together… virtually painless. I took OTC medication the first day or two, but no pain medication after that. Though I had an Rx for pain, I never used or needed it. I was a bit tired and sleepy after the surgery, so I rested and napped, but I went to work the next day in the afternoon virtually pain free. Though there were minor twinges of sensation in the hernia area. They rated only a 1 on a scale of 10. If you are looking for a great surgeon you should contact Dr. Peter Wang. I can highly recommend his surgical expertise and personable, pleasant & confident demeanor.

I love this guy & I say it like that with total respect for him & his profession. He calls it like it is & is very candid to where you can understand what's going on. He has a gentle nature that is very refreshing. My health challenge & the consequences of my condition was explained in detail. My surgery was an elective one and he gave me an understanding of it that helped me with an easy decision. It impressed me that he did not try to push the procedure on me. The procedure was easy for me and the days after made me think as if there had been no surgery. He's a very special Doctor and brings a ton of credibility to his profession and the Hoag community. Thank you for your help Dr. Wang & for being there. Tom H Huntington Beach, Ca.

Recently had an umbilical hernia repair surgery done by Dr. Wang, it went perfectly, there could have been some complications due to my liver condition, but due to his skill and care there was none, it was great, myself, my wife, my GP doctor, and others were impressed. Use Dr. Wang if you can!

Dr Wang saved my mother's life and helped her regain her confidence too! After a sudden ruptured diverticula along with a pelvic abscess and multiple non-invasive attempts to cure her, we had no choice but to proceed with a partial colectomy on my 85 y/o mom right around Thanksgiving. Dr Wang's skill and thorough attention took her through this surgery with great care. And, 5 months later, he was able to successfully reverse an ileostomy just in time for her to attend her only daughter's wedding! Needless to say, we are extremely grateful to Dr Wang, the surgical staff at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, CA and the office staff, Priscilla, Laura, Chris and Rachel at Newport Irvine Surgical Specialists. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND them!
