Children's Hospital wasn't able to see our grandson in a timely manner so his pediatrician called Dr. Whong's office and they were able to give us an appointment within four days. The staff and Dr. Whong were very kind and professional. Thank you.

Worst Doctor I have EVER seen, and I have seen a LOTS of bad doctors in my time. Unbelievably rude and no manners whatsoever. This was the biggest waste of my 30$ copay and now I have to see another ENTRY because Dr. Whong is an idiot.
