17/01/14 5 1 5 4 Ended up waiting over an hour because it was so backed up. The receptionist was one of the best I've seen, she was incredibly positive and uplifting. Dr. Truong was great too. He diagnosed me with the proper condition I did end up having and gave me the proper treatment necessary. I also suggested to him that the medication I was taking had given me nasty side-effects, and so he didn't hesitate for a second to give me another antibiotic. However, I went to another Urologist soon after and the urologist was able to find a condition that Dr. Truong was unable to identify (despite me telling him I had this condition. It was a physical condition that is properly diagnosable with an physical examination using 2 fingers). Nevertheless, he's a great Urologist and he takes the time to understand you and find out what your problems are. Didn't feel rushed. Overall happy with the visit.  Respond

06/01/14 5 5 5 5 I just had a cystoscopy with Dr Truong and I was a huge wailing baby the entire way. It's my worst nightmare to stick anything into my bladder. He was supportive, kind, reassuring and considerate the whole time and all I could do was choke out a couple thank you's and mhmm's. He knew how scary this was for me and did his best to calm me and told me I did a great job going through my procedure. The camera insertion and the liquid filling was a weird sensation but he used numbing gel and told me which instruments were being applied where, and nothing hurt besides a slight pinch going in and coming out. He uses his expertise to help the person's life quality, and thinks about what they are going through every step of the way. I couldn't want more in a doctor.  Respond

31/07/13 5 4 5 5 This Doctor is polite and knowledgeable and is ready to answer any inquiry. His staff are super efficient despite the busy practice. Dr. Truong performed laser surgery on my prostate under GA which has been most helpful giving practically full recovery. He is a credit to his profession and i applaud his dedication to help the suffering.  Respond

12/03/12 4 3 5 5 I have enjoyed having Dr. Truong as my urologist. He takes the time to get to know his patients and understand any underlying issues. He's kind, patient and knowledgeble. He copies my previous surgeon on any documentation to ensure he's kept in the loop. I'd recommend Dr. Truong to anyone. Out ten year old son may have similar issues to what I had, if so, I plan to contact Dr. Truong for a consult to ensure I have the right pediatic nephrologist to take care of our boy.  Respond

14/04/11 3 1 3 3 Making patients wait over 2 hours to be seen is ridiculous for a specialists office. If it was a walk in clinic in Surrey that's one thing, but a specialist apt that you book in advance and often wait weeks or months to be seen.... That's just unprofessional. Learn to manage your patient load or book fewer patients. Unless making $ is all you care about.  Respond

19/03/10 4 4 1 1 This doctor knowledge is really poor. He is very bad in his decisions. He sent you to many test for a simple problem which any regular doctor could understand it. In my opinion never go for him.  Respond
