Ratings for Dr. Steven Aung
He said it would take several treatments (appointments) to fix my child's problem. It never happened even after going to about triple that number of appointments. Waste of money and time. He was always vague in his answers when I asked how much longer it would take to fix the problem. I cannot tell whether he is dishonest or just old and losing his judgement/knowledge. Is it just batch after batch of patients who attempt to get fixed here and only the doctor benefits by making the money? The office attitude is that they are doing you a favour and even if you politely question the long delays they basically snap at you. Only the assistants who remove the needles are respectful of the patients.
I think waiting and waiting for an appt you may or may not get is a very inefficient way to care for patients. It's anybody's guess if you get in. When someone is sick consistency in treatment is very crucial to healing. I going to try and find another dr although I like dr Aung it's just too ridiculous to get in.
Wow, I have seen Dr. Aung for acupuncture almost my whole life and was shocked to read some of the negative comments. Anyone who knows him, knows that he has ABSOLUTELY NO INTEREST in money but is interested in genuinely helping the sick. So, if you have an issue with wait times, that's fine but go somewhere else... I don't find wait times too bad but everyone has a different experience. Dr. Aung's priority will always be to help as many people as possible- even if it means, he has zero time to take care of himself. Not only that, but it is rare to find not just a brilliant acupuncturist, but also one of the top medical doctors. It is a privilege to see him and I am so fortunate to have had my health maintained because of his treatments over the years.
I am tired of his staff trying to convince me that waiting 2 hours for a SCHEDULED appointment that only lasts 20 minutes is normal. I'm pre-booked for my appointments and already waited two months for the first one. At this point I'm stuck and have no other options. I just wish they would just accept the fact they are inefficient instead blaming me for being impatient.
I like Dr. Aung but don't like waiting over an hour beyond my appointment to be called in. I brought this up with his staff and was lectured and made to feel like I was being unreasonable. I actually told his one staff member to stop lecturing me and she continued on even complaining about me openly to other staff and clients.
