in Bohemia, NY |
Dr. Wong was extremely knowledgeable and gave me an incredible explanation of my condition. He showed me the pictures of my sonogram and explained what was going on. He answered all my questions. Dr. Wong did not rush me and understood my anxiety regarding my thyroid condition. He gave me a thorough exam. His demeanor was calming and I felt I was in very competent hands. I am grateful to have Dr. Wong to care for me. I would highly recommend him.
