I like Dr. Ng very much. I was there for a different treatment. At the end of the visit, she asked if she could help me with anything else. I mentioned another area of concern and she gave me options for that. I decided I wanted it investigated so the doctor began to treat that area. I was pleased because I went in for 1 item yet she willingly too the time to treat a 2nd area.

Reviewed on Jun 10, 2019

doctor doesn't explain the full spectrum of the treatment options or doesn't want to answer any other questions. Expected to ask only about one particular problem. If you have any other concerns, they don't want to be bothered. You wait months to get an appointment and very little time to address all your concerns. If patient doesn't educate themselves before the apt, doc never explains anything in detail, quality of care will be really low if patient doesn't ask the right questions.

Reviewed on Jun 4, 2019

Dr. Ng listened to my questions and concerns. I have extremely sensitive skin and thus have difficulty finding a sun screen that doesn't irritate my face. She was able to recommend a sun screen that doesn't irritate my face. She also assured me that everything looks good.

The appointment was scheduled with my husband's appointment. However, the office overbooked another patient in-between our appointments. I was very upset and mad because I arrived at 220pm (with my husband), then didn't get taken into the room until 340pm (appointment started 305pm per MyChart), and wasn't seen by the physician until 4pm. I was very upset and mad in the appointment because of this, and the staff (physician and desk receptionist when I called after the appt) dismissed my feelings as if I should just know this is how things are. When I called the receptionist to report my long wait time, they only made excuses that the physician prefers to spend time with the patients. However, they never acknowledged that they overbooked the appointments and also didn't allow me to discuss with an office manager. She gave me the number to the ombudsman instead.
