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
