Ratings for Dr. Victor Wong
Dr. Wong has been exactly the kind of doctor that my family needs. After waiting in the waiting room for the typical time of 30 mins he gets straight to the point when he enters the room. He makes an effort to talk to my young children who are almost the reason for me being there. I never feel like there is anything that he has forgotten. One time I went in for a kidney infection and was prescribed medication and had my urine sent out for testing. The lab was quick with getting back to me and Dr. Wong called me telling me that I needed to change my medication based on the lab work. I appreciated the personal call and was thankful to be given medicine that eased my pain! As for not looking patients in the eye, he is a tad shy so give the guy a break! He obviously didn't take electives such as drama in high school!! The best approach with him is to break the ice and the conversation flows from there!
I have been attending the office for 10 years now. His knowledge and attention to detail is really admirable. Come on people We go to the doctor for his diagnosis not service with a smile attitude. I personally have gone through many medical problems. Dr. Wong has been thorough with his testing and keeps very good records of my previous visits. He is gentle with the kids and they have never been afraid to visit him. He laughs and smiles, definetly has a shy heart. But his knowledge in the medical practice is to be considered one of the best. P
New (July 2010) office has efficient, friendly & courteous staff with pharmacy adjacent. Parking easy. Blood work taken in office. Diagnostic health services may come later (x-ray, ultrasound). Dr Wong is efficient with his time, helps me understand my conditions & I trust him to make recommendations in my best interest. He has referred me to specialists and to physiotherapists as necessary. On my part I know to ask him questions, be personable but not waste time. Recommend him to friends. Hopefully e-health records will arrive to help me & my doctor!
Dr. Wong is my family doctor for a few years now after my old one changed his speciality. But right now I'm avoiding him. Reason? It's because he doesn't listen to me. He gave me a prescription and I had really bad side effects. His response was "I don't believe it" and keep pushing me to use same medication. I tried again and same thing happened. When you are feeling sick and telling your doctor about it and he's not listen to you then what can you do? I find if you have kids to see him then he sounds so kind and thoughtful. If you are an adult and want to talk to him to get some experienced opinions, you are not in luck. I was hoping he would be better with time and experience but so far I don't think so. One thing I like about him is his ties with a big hospital so when you need to see a specialist he's well connected.
As much as I think Dr Wong does a good job, I have to agree he is always in a hurry. At first, I thought he will change with experience but am wrong. Conversation? unless you satrt one. Details about your reason of visit, you have to provide it, sometimes too, you have to tell him what you want him to do. I think though he is quite knowledgeable but too much in a hurry to do a better job. Overall, I think he needs some training on peoples skills and focus on the patient in front of him than how many he needs to see for the day.
