Ratings for Dr. John W. Wang
Dr Wang saw my mother at the nursing home after she was hospitalized for pneumonia. He spent a great deal of time with our family patiently explaining and updating us on her care and kept in good communication. I am completely satisfied with his care and appreciated his bedside manner. I will continue to have my mother see him as her regular doctor.
I was admitted into the hospital and Dr Wang was my attending physician. I did not see him at all until around 1:00 in the afternoon the SECOND day I was at the hospital. The only other time I saw him was when I was surprisingly sent home and my family and I demanded to see him with some explanations before I left. The ER radiologist said that I had a bile leak and free fluid. Dr Wang said this was untrue and the the free fluid was just from having my gallbladder removed 4 months prior to my hospital admission. I asked how long the "free fluid" would take to absorb and he said "up to one year". Every medical person I have spoken to since then says that is untrue and it should never take a year for free fluid to reabsorb. Dr Wang was also supposed to consult with my surgeon about the radiology findings of the bile duct leak and free fluid but a phone call to my surgeon after getting back home revealed the Dr Wang had, in fact, NEVER even contacted my surgeon in the first place!
Very surprised with the comments here unless confused about someone else. Makes no sense why someone would stay with the same physician for over 4 years if things are going that badly. But I only have had courteous interaction with the staff and things taken care of in a timely fashion many times over the phone without needing visits for things like test results or referrals.
Routinely forgets to let you know results of All tests, you must demand test results and then confront him for the meanings. Copies of my 4 yr med history were missing 10 months and many pages. Poor Attitude Receptionist works 2 jobs also in getting pts ready to 'see doctor' and she is not legally licensed to do this for patients, being only a receptionist with horrible phone manners & worse attitude, she's not a NA, aide or PA. She also lies for the doctor when he's standing right there, lies to patients about their problems with the dr., forgets messages, etc. During the 4 years I was w/him he never, not ONE TIME EVER returned a phone call. The ER called him and had to admit me for 4 weeks and he never called to verify treatment or anything, tho he claims he's making rounds daily @ the same hospital. VERY new Dr, even staff admits he loses paperwork like clockwork. He seems really lazy, and only grunts when you update him & VERY BAD memory for pt probs.Nearly killed me w/wrong meds!
