  • Otolaryngology

    An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck.

Be wary

Staff and subordinates were afraid of her imperiousness. She has more political clout than medical expertise, it seems. And she flagrantly lied to me during a phone call where I complained about a surgical incident, that left me damaged. I suspect she did not do the surgery herself, but her colleagues tell me if she didn't do the procedure I would never find out in the record who really held the knife.

One Star

Went to her a couple of times and was unimpressed. She was not interested in doing a CT scan or biopsy for proper diognosis. All she wanted was to perform surgery. I am lucky to have found someone else who based on tests ruled out need for surgery.

Rude

Dr. Wang had a very negative attitude. She gave me very blunt answers which would only lead me to ask more questions, which would seem to only upset her even more. Doctors like this are the reasons I try to avoid hospitals.

Two Stars

I found her to be somewhat ill at ease and nervous as if she was apprehensive about there being silence between us and then made herself look rather preoccupied with the facts of my situation based on body language.(although this isn't really that big a deal). However, one remark she made that stands out for its lack of discretion.....when I mentioned that eating could often help lessen the discomfort in my neck, she then replied, "Well eat alot then because you're so thin." Any competent doctor shouldn't be making this sort of judgemental comment to a patient even if true.

Five Stars

Dr. Wang provided excellent surgical care and follow up. Her diagnostic and surgical skills are on point. She was very professional at all times and was very open to answering all of my questions. I was able to schedule follow-up appointments with ease.
