Dr. Ngu shows a high degree of professionalism, and has a great bedside manner. He patiently shows you, what the issue is and discusses, how to fix it. He’s attentive before and after surgery. You couldn’t ask for a better doctor.

My husband was trying to make an appointment with Dr. Ngu as a new patient but because he is on Medicare he was not able to do a consult with the doctor. He was asked to forward a copy of his MRI and than told "couldn't help me" by a voicemail.

Dr. Ngu literally saved my husband's life. Not being melodramatic! No one could figure out that his severe incapacitating neck pain was due to a broken neck and a screw lodge in the soft tissue in his neck. After 5 days, an MRI and and a CT by THE OTHER GUYS, Dr. Ngu figured it out in about an hour. He is amazing.

Dr Ngu is patient focused and conservative, but practical in treatment. He gets to the root of the problems, shows in detail the issues found on MRI and/or CT Scan, and explains the solutions available. He will answer all questions honestly. He is caring, and will come see you every day in the Hospital following surgery and works hard on your behalf to get you back to as normal a life as possible.

Dr. Ngu is the best surgeon I have ever had. Even after my surgery if I ever have a problem no matter what time or day he has always called me right back himself. He is a great surgeon and a good person. I would highly recommend Dr.Ngu for anybody! He shoots you straight and tells you the truth. He has fixed some of my problems I have had for many years due to an accident. I just can't talk highly enough of this great surgeon.

I made a apt for 2/25 at 8 am. i called on 2/24 to confirm the time & was told they showed no apt for me. after going over everything again i was told be there 2/25 at 8am & i would be worked in. i was given 11 pages to sign & fill out. AFTER filling it out i was told sorry we do not take your insurance. i do not know whay they could not have told me this from the beginning!!
