Seattle, WA |
Was very condescending and unwilling to address the concerns I was sent with. Extremely disappointed in the level of care. This is NOT how an endocrinologist should treat you,

I was referred to Dr. Wang by my physician after finding a series of nodules on my thyroid. Dr. Wong took the time on the first visit to get to know me and to explain every detail of my ultrasound report until I felt confident making the decision on my next stage of care. During my FNA biopsy, he talked me through every step of the way. I barely felt it at all. I highly recommend him to high anxiety patients like myself. Also, his assistant was fabulous, too. Best medical staff I've had in years

I ended up changing to another doctor because he just did not want to listen to my concerns.

Dr. Wang has been an amazing doctor with my care. I feel he truly has my health care in control and he cares about what happens. I can't recommend him any higher as he is as professional as they come.

I am so blessed to have found Dr. Wang. He is always a pleasure to go and see! He does everything in his power to help me deal with my health issues and we are a great team. My husband is also one of Dr. Wang's patients (with similar great results) and I would highly recommend the good doctor to anyone and have indeed done so. Dr. Wang has made a tremendous difference in my life and I look forward to many years as his patient!!

I have been seeing Dr. Wang for 3 years. He wants to work with you. He is very knowledgable. He always spends time and listens to me, never rushes. I fully trust him!

Dr Wang is the hospitalist for my mother. He doesn't listen and isn't willing to look beyond the surface.
in Belfair, WA |
Great, takes the time to explain, always very professional, always very pleasant .Recommend him , anytime someone asks about my Doctor.

I've seen Dr. Wang twice now. Each time I left I felt like he didn't listen to a word that I had said. I am currently on this site searching for a better rates endocrinologist. At my last visit I told him I would like to get to the bottom of my current circumstances, rather than using band-aids to cover up the symptoms. To which he replied that basically is not going to happen and instead continue to medicate to counteract symptoms. Frustrating and pointless. I am an RN and know better.....
