Dr. Wang on the other-hand is the epitome of what a medical practitioner should be. I have never met her, not yet. I contacted her on Yelp and she took the initiative to contact me on a Friday night. She asked questions that were actually relevant the situation and added insight.



She is down to earth and relatable and made me feel so comfortable - nothing was taboo or 'weird' to talk about.



I appreciate that she takes her time to make sure she's thorough with your care and explains everything very clearly.  She's honest and I really trust her with my health care.



Dr. Wang is wonderful! Very professional, whipe remaining very personalble, unlike most doctors you will find today. She spends the time necessary to understand the issues and works with you until a solution is found.



She was amazing! Gave her a call and started giving me tips through the phone! Truly a doctor who cares about her patients right from the beginning. Definitely would recommend her!!



Dr. Wang is a very relatable, laid back and friendly person. She treated me in urgent care for  issues with my tonsils, and the whole time we exchanged friendly banter, (she  picked up that, I too am a pretty laid back person)She has high energy and loves what she does.
