    On time, addressed my concerns clearly.

  • Dec 13, 2019

    Dr. Ng struck me as a very goof doctor taking the time to listen to me and answer my questions. If he was booked tightly it did not show in his behavior and the way he took time to talk to me. He appears to be very knowledgeable and very informed. You would think this is the case of MOST doctors but no, it is not.

  • Dec 13, 2019

    My initial meeting with Dr. Ng and the intern was extremely helpful in the information I received from them. I felt comfortable discussing the procedure with them and am looking forward to the surgery.

    Dr. Ng has treated me with total respect. and has helped me more than any other doctor has ever helped me before. He did surgery, and I'll have an upcoming surgery again, and I feel that he is more than a 10. He is honest, forthright, and extremely obviously competent. He is the best doctor that I have ever seen, and I have been seeing many doctors over my life time for lupus, and he's taking care of a very serious problem for me right now, and I have full confidence in him. I would recommend him *

    Been seeing Dr Ng for years due to an auto accident. It's been a long journey but he's been the best. I think we are done, hope we are anyway. His staff, particularly Claudia, are great.
