Ratings for Dr. Thao Ong
Dr Ong looked after me in hospital with a perforated bowell followed by colonoscopy. This man has a great bedside manner and genuinely cares about you the patient. To say I am extremely impressed is an understatement , Very gratefull for his great service. I've dealt with other specialist who could take a leaf from his book on his complete dedication and care.
Good surgeon, clear communication, damnable timeliness, kept 5 patients and family waiting all day for a 10.00 am release. Does not communicate timing at all well.
I presented a Private ED after getting limited help at a public hospital, not the doctors and nurses fault as they were extremely busy. I was recommended Dr Ong by some nurses and the doctor at the private ED. I was admitted and saw doctor Ong on his early morning round, he took me on as a patient and left admission instructions for the hospital, it was straight forward, quick and well managed. I have since seen doctor Ong at his rooms and he always has time for concerns and has returned calls when needed. Highly recommended and very patient welfare focused.
I fell quite ill whilst overseas and returned home requiring medical attention. I was referred to Doctor Ong after presenting at a Private hospital Emergency Department . Dr Ong arranged to have me admitted to hospital and attended to my treatment and eventual Endoscopy and Colonoscopy. Rarely do I bother to submit a review on anything, but I came across this rating site by searching for Dr Ong's phone number. I was extremely impressed with Dr Ong's knowledge and he explained all aspects of my illness and possible causes and outcomes very clearly. He cared for my wellbeing and I was very confident in trusting him to get me back to good health. He explored all aspects of my illness and helped me through a very difficult two weeks. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Dr Ong saved my husbands life! After 5 days in another hospital with a seriously infected gall bladder and no help forthcoming, my husband was transferred as a private patient to Calvary at Nth Adelaide where Dr Ong agreed to accept him as an emergency case even though he had a very sick mother he was about to fly out to. He put himself out for us just before Christmas and we will be eternally grateful to him. Without his expertise my husband would most certainly have died. All follow up care was excellent. We would both go without hesitation to Dr Ong for any future procedure. Very highly recommended by us.
