Ratings for Dr. Derek Wang
Dr. Wang may be young but a biased opinion based on that means nothing. He passed his residency, if a panel of his peers didn’t think he was qualified to practice medicine, he wouldn’t have received certification. When I met him, he was sympathetic and listened to what I had to say. He never cut me off, he never asked leading questions. He was never suggestive of what the cause of my illness might be. He was an impartial observer trying to assess the situation I was in to determine how best to treat it. And he was thorough. I appreciated that a lot. —- I would go see him again.
Dr. Wang is nice but inexperienced and not knowledgeable. He missed my diagnosis completely and it was caught by a second doctor I went to see after not getting better. I was told this was a pretty straightforward case and he should have at least investigated. Sorry but I won't be back.
I took my father to see Dr Wang and I appreciated him spending time to explaining medical stuff which was nice. BUT he never followed up with his lab results which were critical! My dad was eventually admitted to the hospital for few days, and was told he could have lost his kidney functions totally. When we went back to Dr Wang for follow up after discharge, he brushed the issue off as if it was nothing, and not even apologetic! I will NEVER recommend ANYONE to see him, especially if you have sick parents!
Dr. Derek Wang's response
Thank you for the feedback. I apologize for making your father feel dismissed, and just wanted to say that I would appreciate an opportunity to discuss in person, so I can better understand what went wrong. Please kindly get in touch with my clinic and ask to speak to me if you read this, thank you.
