Ratings for Dr. Della J. Fong
I saw dr. Della Fong once and she scared the h** out of me in the five minutes that she spent listening to my medical history. Needless to say, she was over an hour late to my scheduled appointment. She failed to carefully examine and listen on all the details of my history, which caused to rush into a conclusion that I must have a treatment that no insurance company in the States pays for, yet, and that she highly recommends I have it done in China. I was shocked that she'd recommend anyone to go for such an expensive treatment all the way across the ocean, to a country that I've never been to, do not speak language, and yet "she'd arrange it all". It made me feel as if she had some financial interest. When I walked out, I was so speechless with what she had told me and left me with (she found enough time to hand me a bunch of pamphlets to educate myself on my own on a rather complex matter). I learned more from Google than from her and then I realized that nothing what she had told me is accurate. Fortunately, my common sense suspected that I better search for a second opinion. All the specialists I saw after her were laughing at her and her comments, and one even said that he's thankful that I was smart enough to question her competence. I would absolutely not recommend dr. Della Fong. She is the worst doctor I've seen in my 20+ years of visiting gynecologists. Please do yourself a favor and keep on looking.
Dr. Fong always took her time with me during my pregnancy. She always took the time to listen to all my questions and answered, helping put all my concerns and fears during my first pregnancy at ease. She never left me feeling rushed. During my delivery she made me feel so calm and relaxed. I knew I was in good hands and I can't imagine going through another pregnancy with any other doctor. During follow-up appointments and annual appointments she has taken the time to sit with me and discuss whats going on with my daughter and it seems as though she genuinely cares to spend the time getting to know her patients. I followed her to her new practice even though it is farther from my home because I feel I will get the best care and treatment from her.
Dr Fong is a nice person but an alarmist who ordered unnecessary and unwarranted tests for me without my knowing exactly why. She scared a friend of mine who had a urinary tract infection which Dr Fong said could be bladder cancer. My friend subsequently went in tears to her general practitioner who treated her with antibiotics. Dr Fong also once failed to get an adequate pap sample from me, blamed my cervix and made me pay for a second exam and lab test. I would not recommend her.
Dr Fong rush through all my appointments with her as well, she spends maximum 5 minutes with me and then run away before u can ask her any further questions every single time and she exaggerates situation to add unnecessary stress. Also it happened a couple of times that she would leave the exam room with the door open when I was still partially undressed which is very rude and inconsiderate. I would not recommend her to anyone especially first time moms.
She is really nice, but don't let that fool you. When I first got pregnant, she took a Ultrasound picture and commented my baby is so "photogenic". It sounds really sweet, but anyone with a logical brain knows that line is so fake. Almost like scripted. We warned her about my previous miscarriage. Due to her inexperience, she refused to inform us about incompetent cervix. If we were told to watch out for it and get a cerclage, we might had been able to save our baby. I lost the baby due to it when I later found out from a high risk MD. Please please please, do yourself a favor and find a better doctor. You don't want to risk your pregnancy.
Problem pregnancy beware !!! I have to agree that Dr. Fong is very nice. Unfortunately, she is also incompetent. She is pretty young. She will do fine with your regular pregnancy stuff, but she won't be able to help you if you are high-risk pregnancy. We lost a baby because of her incompetency. You also have to rotate to see differnet doctor in her office each time. Dr. Morrison is wonderful and experienced. There is a new doctor Dr. Li. Anyway, stay away from her if you want a safe pregnancy, or someone to catch problems with your pregnancy. Her scheduler Ginette is terrible too, won't budge or accomodate your busy work schedule. It's either "her" way or the high way.
she is a very caring and helpful dr, will spend as much time as you need to answer your questions. she delivered my baby and listened to every small concern and was wonderful in the delivery room and post pregnancy. dr. morrison in her office is also wonderful
