Patient Comments

  • Dec 31, 2019

    Dr Wang was very thorough explaining what my procedure would entail. I felt very confident talking to him.

  • Dec 20, 2019

    Dr. Wang is amazing. His bedside manner is perfect. And I appreciate everything that he does including the MA Lacey and our scribe Andrew. It's always a pleasure to see all of them.

  • Dec 17, 2019

    Dr Wang is always kind, professional and an extremely good doctor. Always asks my opinion on the outcome I am looking for.

  • Dec 12, 2019

    He seems genuinely interested in my goal for the best possible outcome.

  • Dec 11, 2019

    Dr Wang is a very caring provider. He appears to be very much in demand or is working to cover more patients than OHSU is adequately staffed. His time with me is very short and to the point. Dr. Wang would be better served IF his staff/department was more patient focused (see comments later).

  • Dec 09, 2019

    Dr. Wang was extremely thorough and gave great explanations of what was going on with my nose and how to fix it. My partner and I were both impressed and would absolutely recommend him!

  • Dec 08, 2019

    Very well. I have no idea.

  • Dec 06, 2019

    Extremely caring and capable physician and staff.

  • Dec 06, 2019

    Always kind, comforting, and professional. Office staff is terrific too!

  • Nov 24, 2019

    Dr. Wayne was very professional and you could tell he has great experience and I like very professional and that he took pictures with the little stickers so that exactly what to do and it was a quick appointment is very informal maybe information part cause it could have been a little bit slower. But other than that, I certainly enjoyed my appointment with him and look forward to working with them in the future.

  • Nov 22, 2019

    Dr Wang was very professional and courteous. He took time to explain every detail of my upcoming procedure and recovery; and he invited me to ask any questions. He and his staff made themselves available to me 24/7 and we’re very friendly and kind. Dr Wang is very skilled and able to deal quickly with any unexpected difficulties to resolve them with great results.

  • Nov 17, 2019

    He's an excellent doctor. Thank you.

  • Nov 15, 2019

    I had a septo/rhinoplasty approximately 6.5 weeks ago to (hopefully) improve my breathing. Although I'm not fully healed, I'm extremely disappointed with the results at this point. In an attempt to maintain the "character" of my nose, I asked that it be straightened as little as possible. I was not aware that this could jeopardize air flow - my primary reason for the surgery. I am now in a situation where my left nostril will probably have little to no improvement post surgery and remains almost fully blocked by cartilage. My right nostril is still swollen - so I should see some improvement - but is currently worse than pre-surgery. I delayed this surgery twice over the course of a decade and am now questioning my decision and feeling quite saddened by the outcome.

  • Nov 14, 2019

    Dr. Tom Wang was excellent, straight forward and willing to listen. I didn't need a lot of explanation or coddling, Dr. Wang gave me more explanation than needed but it was reassuring to know that he was through describing everything step by step with the procedures and his recommendations for follow up visits. I have already given out his card to coworkers who might have similar situations that Dr. Wang could possibly help.

  • Nov 07, 2019

    Hello. Yes, Tom- Dr. Wang was very good for the consultation. Was a pretty complex consultation, and he explained in detail, which I was impressed by. He took a lot of time. He's a very, very articulate person. I've never seen him as a doctor, so this is my first impression of him. I really liked him. Anyway, so that's it.

  • Nov 01, 2019

    The staff were great and very attentive. They listened and allowed me to stay after my surgery as long as I needed. Very good at pt care and communication. Thank you all.

  • Oct 25, 2019

    It was fantastic. He is a great listener. Dr Wang exceeded my expectations. I will be returning for follow up care.

  • Oct 22, 2019

    Personal and professional

  • Oct 22, 2019

    Absolutely. Dr. Wang is very skilled, and my surgeon wanted him alone to close my incision. Everyone who sees it says it looks great.

  • Oct 16, 2019

    Dr. Wang is amazing I loved my visit with him. I plan to continue to have him provide for me on a couple of things and OHSU was great. That's it.

  • Oct 14, 2019

    Very quick and very clear on what all was happening with the procedure that day. Everyone made sure we fully understood and had no further questions. They were all very polite and professional. Overall the staff at OHSU were phenomenal and I would highly recommend them to anyone

  • Oct 14, 2019

    He was very pleasant and took time to answer my questions. As for referrals, have to wait and see how the surgery turns out since I have pronounced scar tissue from the last one. Praying that can be corrected and that it won't happen again.

  • Oct 08, 2019

    I am a new, pre-op patient of Dr. Wang and am scheduled for a rhinoplasty in a few weeks. My experience thus far has been excellent.

  • Sep 27, 2019

    kind listensdoes great work

  • 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.

  • Sep 24, 2019

    Dr. Wang embodies the OHSU personna perfectly. He was very comprehensive, straight forward and honest.

  • Sep 21, 2019

    Dr. Wang is exceptional. He’s so knowledgeable and articulate. He explained the process so thoroughly that all of our questions were answered without ever needing to ask them.

  • Sep 08, 2019

  • Sep 08, 2019

    Good but surgery wasn’t totally successful.

  • Sep 06, 2019

    The staff were all around very responsive, informative, and showed that they view the patient’s best interest as a top priority. As a result, I feel very confident with having surgery and I really appreciate that my doctor covered a variety of surgical procedures capable of achieving my health and wellness needs.

  • Aug 23, 2019

    Excellent. Very informative and thorough.

  • Aug 23, 2019

    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.

  • Aug 16, 2019
