    Both receptionists are always very helpful and friendly. Dr.Wong has a very busy clinic so I always plan for a small wait but the staff works quickly to get you into a room so the wait is not bad at all.

    All my visits within Dr. Wong's office have been excellent. The staff are outstanding. Dr. Wong is wonderful. I have compassion for the staff in the office because they are so busy and some of the patients in the waiting room are not patient, rude and sometimes inappropriate but the staff is very patient with them and treat them with respect.
