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.

About Me

Care Philosophy

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.
