  • Sep 27, 2019

    I felt like the anesthesia, the numbing, was rushed. I was in considerable pain with each injection. That's my only feedback. I think it could've been done a little less painfully, by letting the numbing agent take hold more effectively.

    He couldn't help me.

  • Aug 20, 2019

    His bedside manor leaves something to be desired, but working in the medical field my experience is most good experienced surgeons have this demeanor. I feel like he could listen more. Overall my surgery went well and have so far had a good outcome. I would've liked to have had him come talk to me post op. Getting the report from my husband wasn't helpful, as he doesnt ask questions. My recovery is as he described and would use him again if need ever arose.

    Dr.Wang is by far my favorite surgeon. I was born with a cleft lip and palate. Im 34 now and was hoping for a good outcome to help with the look of my nose and lip as well as breathing better. I cant express enough how happy i am even 6 day post op with how i look and how much better i can even breathe thus far. OHSU is by far the best place you can go for great care. Everyone i have come in contact with have been great! Ill never forget what OHSU has done for me.??
