Ratings for Dr. Peter K.K. Wong
Wow - I thought it was just me that found this guy to be inept and clearly more interested in $$ than what should be a calling - to help people. One example I have noted is when he required an elderly non ambulatory patient to come to his office to be handed a letter from a specialists office notifying the time and place of an appointment. There are the Royal Mail, the telephone, email alternatives which would not require the same disruption of not just the patient but those that care for them. Friends have to schedule a half day to achieve this 10 minute audience - in our case three people including the patient. My GP would NEVER disrespect me in this way. This guy KKWong was awarded the Order of BC for his non medical activities - an advocate for strong trade relations with China, participating in a number of trade missions with all levels of government and serving as a special advisor to the Musqueam Nation for Asia-Pacific affairs. In my opinion he should stick to his business interests and abandon his hobby. AVOID this guy unless you want some trade representation.
I agree with most of the reviews that say Dr. Peter KK Wong is the worst doctor. He keeps patients waiting at least an hour and then rushes them through the appointment as quickly as he can. He doesn't listen, contradicts specialists opinions, and seems to lack very important knowledge. He has alot of elderly Chinese patients who I feel badly for and know that they are likely not getting good care. He likes to prescribe prescription meds as a solution to important issues without consideration of their side effects. He inherited this practice from a doctor who retired and he cares more about the business than he does the people who come to him for care. I am appalled with the reviewer on Feb 7/17 who is obviously a staff person who condons this type of behaviour and lack of care while also triple booking patients.
lots of patients so long wait times, not really under his control if the patients are taking long though. a lot of patients are older and have concerns that are not necessarily ones that can be dealt with in that time and most people don't understand that.
I have SERIOUS concerns about this doctor from my own experience (my 80 year old mother is in his care) & from reading these reviews. My mom has hardening of the ateries...asthma...hypothyroidism...osteoporosis. .....hypertension. And this doctor prescribes drugs after drug. He says for mom to just eat whatever she wants and to let her just enjoy her life. We will be pushing him for more solutions and look for another doctor. If you have an elderley parent in his care make sure you accompany him or her to their appointments to let this guy know that there is someone else looking out for your mom or dad.
I've been with this doctor since I was nine. He's great, and I find that he treats older patients much more patiently than he treats younger patients. But he's amazing with my newborn and he is willing to answer any questions I have about my baby.
The only good thing about this Dr. is Grace his assistant for many years. He treats older people much like a bully and with prescription after prescription. Money is the motive as there is often a long wait so he can push them through as fast as possible. He has on the occassion not even looked at my mother's rash when she complained to only find out she had a minor case of shingles on the second visit. The elderly are better looked after if accompanied by another family member (younger) who is willing to ask the questions and expect a reasonable response rather than pushed aside.
DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR. My parents have been seeing this doctor for a long time., When my dad turned eighty, he needed a doctor to fill out his Driveable form saying that he is fit to drive. He wrote dementia and my dad has NOT been diagnosed for dementia. My dad had to pay 1000 in driving school and more tests. Because Dr. Peter Wong made a mistake. HE has a mean streak in him. He responded that back angrily to my father that he was stupid. DO NOT GO TO THIS MAN!!!! VERY UNPROFESSIONAL.
You can really tell when a Doctor’s sole purpose of being a medical practitioner is because of money. He used to be my family doctor. Thank God I switched doctors. He does not care about his patient’s well being. His opinions and comments show a lack of knowledge, sincerity, and empathy. My dad was injured in a work incident and was wrongly diagnosed. He evaluated that my dad was able to return to work, when clearly, he was not able to (as confirmed but other doctors later). My dad, as ordered, returned to work and experienced extreme difficulty and pain carrying out his work. When his work place received the medical report, they too were in disbelief and suggested my dad to be examined by other doctors. After he realized how careless and negligent he was in his report, he apologized. Unfortunately, I had a lack of legal knowledge back then. If the incident happened today, I swear I will report him to the college and sue him for malpractice. I urge anyone of his patients who experienced the same thing to do so.
