La Jolla, CA |
Dr. Wong lacks empathy and has poor communications skills. She made a snap diagnosis without responding to my concerns. She forgot to give the referral that she said she was going to give me so I had to follow up. Afterwards, I also did research which suggested her assumptions were wrong. I sent her my findings asking for clarification and she did not respond.
