I am a relatively new patient: met Dr NG @ Sequoia Hospital: he was recommended by my cardiologist Dr Nouri. Dr NG has been very thorough explaining every step of my condition and checking on all medications. Due to the Corona virus I had cancelled my appointments. Dr Ng called me in person to see how I was doing and offer any help I might need. With the present situation, I was very touched by his dedication. Thank you Dr NG

Dr Ng was my husband's nephrologist and is my internist. He is in all ways the best doctor I've ever had or known. He LISTENS. Other medical professionals tell me he is the smartest doctor they've ever known and THE BEST. He is not egotistical. He discusses my own research with me.. He has no answering service. He is available 24/7 through his cell phone..

Dr Ng maybe technically proficient, but I'll never find out given his poor bedside manner. He comes off arrogant, describing his training as a Ferrari compared to the training of internal medicine doctors. While I was sounding my symptoms off, he often cut me off, impatiently. Not really willing to hear me out. But took plenty of time explaining his medical analysis...more in the spirt of showing off how smart he is than really explaining the problem.
