Ratings for Dr. Yoke Wong
I only went to her because my previous ob/gyn was not delivering babies anymore. My previous ob always did ultrasounds at all of my prenatal visits, but Dr. Wong only did it a couple of times throughout my pregnancy and even mentioned more than once to me that they cost a lot. I felt she was looking out more for her pockets, than really being genuinely concerned for the best interest of me. Also, she likes to gauge money whenever she can from you. Call your insurance company to confirm whether a certain test is covered before you pay her out of pocket.
BEST DR EVER! WHILE I LIVE IN NJ OPTED TO STAY WITH DR WONG IN NY THRU MY WHOLE PREGNANCY SHE IS VERY UPFRONT WITH ANY ISSUES SUCH AS 2 OTHER WOMEN DELIVERING THE SAME WEEK AND RISK OF NOT DELIVERING IN MY 1ST CHOICE HOSPITAL. WHILE I DID HAVE TO GO TO BROOKLYN B/C OF ANOTHER DELIVERY SHE STAYED 2 WHOLE DAYS STRAIGHT IN THE HOSP AND EVEN FOLLOWED UP THE NEXT DAY A SAT. WHILE I PUSHED FOR 5 HRS SHE NEVER EVEN MENTIONED A C-SECTION UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE BEFORE MY DAUGHTER WAS BORN COULDN'T B HAPPIER WITH MY CHOICE OF DR. AND OUR GREAT PATIENT DR. RELATIONSHIP THAT HAS COME OUT OF THIS DELIVERY.
Dr. Wong is one of my favorite doctors. I've been seeing her for almost 15 years and she delivered my first child 2 years ago and will deliver my 2nd next year...she is very dedicated to her patients and works darn hard...unlike some other obs who pass along their on call doctor, when i asked her what happens if she can't deliver my baby she replies" why wouldn't I? The only way I wouldn't be there is if I was delivering another baby at a different hospital." True to her word, she came to the hopsital at night when I went into labor, slept in the hospital and stayed until I delivered the next morning...she's awesome.
I loved receiving prenatal care from Dr Wong. She was always so friendly and smiley, and always gave both myself and my husband time to ask questions. We never felt rushed. I ended up opting for a homebirth so had to switch my prenatal care to a homebirth midwife but if Dr Wong did homebirths I would have been so happy for her to have delivered my baby. She also works Sundays and you can visit her in either her Brooklyn or Manhattan offices. I highly recommend her.
She is exremely knowledgable and very gentle with exams... I travel 30+ miles just to see her. After exams from other doctors, I would always get the feeling that I am going to faint. With Dr. Wong, I experienced to pain or discomfort during the exams and did not feel like I was going to faint. She also makes you feel extrememly comfortable in general - from her greeting to the very end. I highly recommend her for any females looking for a gentle, knowledgable gyn.
