“I just have to say that I wish all doctors were as professional and caring as Dr. Wang.  She is genuinely concerned about you as a patient and she takes the time to understand exactly what is going on and does so in such a personable way.  You feel comfortable in her care immediately.  She is amazing!”

“She has helped me incredibly with my depression and suicidal ideation.  I had done a study through UCLA where Ketamine helped my treatment resistant depression significantly.  Continuing treatment with her after the study finished has helped maintain my mental health.  She is quick is responding and genuinely cares about my well being, keeping me on track to a healthy way of living.  I recommend her as she has helped save my life.”

“No need to drive to Beverly Hills if you live in OC!  Did filler and botox with her and ppl always ask if I’m 21…very subtle and natural.  As far as skincare, I did Pico Genesis last year and it helped me get rid of my dark spots!”
