Dr. Wang is an awesome physician and a compassionate and skilled surgeon. I trusted him to perform a very delicate surgery on me in 2014. Thanks to his skill and expertise, the surgery was a success with no complications and all cancer was removed. He checked on me daily during my hospital stay and took as much time as I needed to discuss my progress. I love his sense of humor and the fact that he is so approachable. I highly recommend him and have recommended him to others across the Country.

The information on the site for EXISTING PATIENTS is wrong! The correct and only contact right now for Dr. Wang is 985.868.2273! Someone is obviously misrepresenting him by trying to lure his existing patients away. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Wang to anyone. He practices with the utmost integrity and humility I have seen in a provider in a very long time. He is an asset to any program he joins and I look forward to seeing what might be on the horizon for him.
