Avoid.

Dr. Wok helped my son and I with sports injuries. He has a great demeanor.
in Washington, DC |
Dr Wowk is a great doctor, but if you are willing to deal with rude front desk staff and wait times of 1hr and 30 minutes then this is the place for you. His front desk Staff person Jenny C is so horrible and rude and should be fired immediately.
in Falls Church, VA |
the staff in the office is very rude and not helpful. The doctor is ok, but he doesnt have time to really understand what's the issue. He told me I don't have any problem when MRI showed that I have a herniated disk and sciatica. Would not recommend.
