Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ng "I am very dedicated to my patients' care. I do not use an answering service and it's easy to get an appointment in the office to see me. I'll see my patients when they are well enough to come to my office but also when they are very sick and need to stay overnight in the hospital."
