22/09/11 3 3 1 4 Major decline in service over the past few years. I have tried to get my kids in to see Dr. Wong on numerous occasions only to be told, "Sorry, booked solid. Try a walk-in clinic." So we have not seen Dr. Wong or his associate for anything other than check-ups for the past few years simply because we CANNOT get in. I called 4 months ago to book check-up appts. for my 3 kids and was told they were booking into October. Booked 3 back-to-back appts. in mid-October. So imagine my surprise this morning when Dr. Wong's receptionist called me to inform me that because my kids haven't been seen by Dr. Wong since Aug. 2009, I will need a new referral in order to keep the October appointments. We haven't been there in 2 years because it's IMPOSSIBLE to get an appointment for anything other than a check-up. I guess being patients of his for 12 1/2 years means nothing. So we're basically stuck finding a new doctor at a time when doctors are in short supply in Calgary. Nice!  Respond

31/07/11 5 4 5 5 Dr Wong and his other staff are fantastic. I am grateful that we have access to him here in Calgary. Patient, kind and caring. He treats my two children (daughter and son) with loving kindness and compassion each time we visit. Sometimes we have to wait a bit to see him but once you are in his office you know you have his complete attention. He never rushes us. He is an amazing physician.  Respond

27/07/11 3 2 2 3 A decline in service after 8 years with my girl and now boy. We have taken our son in three times for the same complaint and do not feel heard, just shuffled through. Everyone we meet asks if we've seen a doctor about him, and I have to say "yes, we've been 3 times, to pediatricians, but no real info". At least now they've suggested a hearing test, but no response on a date after almost 2 weeks. These are the specialists. Where do you go from here?  Respond

15/11/09 5 4 5 5 We love love love Dr Wong. He is never too quick to medicate, which I appreciate. He is extremely knowledgeable and always makes sure to explain things to us to ensure our understanding. O like they he gives us different options to help our kids instead of handing us a prescription and sending us out the door.  Respond

23/09/09 4 3 5 5 We are SO grateful to have Dr. Wong as our son's pediatrician - he is really the best! From the very first visit he impressed me (and I'm hard to please, especially when it comes to my son's welfare). He is very knowledgeable, caring, thorough, and has a very gentle manner that my son responds well to. We were worried about him when he was sick - thankfully he seems to be doing well and we are happy to have him back!  Respond

17/09/09 5 5 5 5 A wonderful Doctor! We feel blessed to have Dr. Wong as our son's Doctor. He is very knowledgeable, listens extremely well, is sensitive to the patient's overall needs, and walks a common sense line between traditional medicine and alternative. Our pre-schooler son loves him! Highly, highly recommended!!  Respond

18/08/08 4 4 5 5 Dr.Wong is back, atleast part time. My child was refered to him before he left for cancer treatment. It is sad to see that Janie (office staff) is gone, she rocked right along with the good doctor. it has taken a long time to get my son to gain weight and deal with other issues, but Wong is worth seeing. We had been to others in calgary but they tend to be lazy in comparison  Respond

12/07/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Wong is one of the best pediatricians I have taken my son to. I am very thankful that he is open to alternative remedies. "He listens" to his patients. My son has been his patient for aprx. 10 years. Unfortunately, he is no longer my son's doctor because he turned 18yrs last year. My son constantly talks about him. I feel fortunate that I was able to bring my son into his care when I did. I also wish that we got to know him earlier. Hi Dr. Wong, this is your past patient M S M. I heard that you are back at work. I want to congratulate you on your return and wish you the best in the future. You're the best.  Respond

10/07/08 3 5 5 5 Dr. Wong is by far one of the best pediatrician in Calgary. He is knowledgeable and very receptive to alternative medicine. His office staff are not great.  Respond

05/05/08 5 5 5 5 We have been seeing Dr Wong for just over 7 years now and Dr Wong is by far the very best doctor I have ever known. He is very knowledgeable, thorough, thoughtful and he listens. I really can't say enough about him. The one thing that sticks in my mind when I think of Dr Wong is the one time we were trying to figure out what was wrong with our daughter. Naturally, I had done a lot of researching on the internet and had ideas. I felt very hesitant to ask him if it might have been one of the things I found. Many doctors would react as if you were insulting their intelligence. Not Dr Wong though, he explained to me why it was not the case but welcomed any ideas I might have. I think he is back now although we really missed him while he was gone.  Respond

21/08/07 5 5 5 5 Dr. Wong has been our family's pediatrician since my twins were born 8 1/2 years ago. We now have a 5 year old as well and we all LOVE him. He is the most helpful, personable doctor I've ever met and I truly feel that each of his patients is more than just a number to him. We've run into him at the grocery store on occasion and he actually smiles and says hello. How many other doctors would readily recognize their patients whom they only see a few times a year? He is so thorough and never makes you feel like he is in a rush to get finished with you to get on to the next patient. I've had my children in to see him for one thing and, if it's contagious, he will immediately check out the other children too just to make sure they're not showing symptoms of the same thing. He's absolutely wonderful and we have missed him terribly this past year.  Respond

17/05/07 4 5 5 We were referred to Dr. Wong to help our son with a constipation problem and Dr. Wong was fabulous. Our son loved him (and the toys in the clinic!!!) to this day he still asks to see him... Dr. Wong has solved the problem although challenging as my boy is, I'm sure like a lot of other little boys, very "stubborn" He was extremely helpful and took the time to explain how it all works and what he plans on doing to solve the problem, he listens very well (which is a rare quality in this day and age!) I highly recommend this doctor. I just whish I could have kept my shoes on in his office, tile flooring in the winter is a little too cold for my tootsie!!!  Respond

21/04/07 5 5 5 I also love Dr. Wong and miss him dearly. His patients are more than a case number to him - he really cares about their mental and physical health. Knows his stuff, and actually listens to me (the mother) when I talk. Will find room in his schedule to see a patient if it is an emergency. He has been on extended medical leave -- may he recover fully and live long.  Respond

19/03/07 4 5 5 Dr Wong is the best pediatrician! He has taken extremely good care of my two girls since they were infants. They are now ages 7 & 11. Dr. Wong recently fell ill. So currently other physicians are caring for his patients. Both of my children have remarked how much they like him and how much they miss him. The thing I like best about Dr. Wong is he is not too quick to pick up the prescription pad. He takes his time and makes sure all of our concerns are addressed. I have one more thing to say: Get well soon Dr. Wong you are missed!!!  Respond
