Specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

very poor care

Dr Wong spent very little time with us. He was very dismissive of my mothers pain and concerns. He was unavailable for any refills on her pain medications and his covering physcian would not refill her medications.

Dr Richie Wong

He never kept to his appointment times.I waited almost 2hrs over my appointment time.Gave me a misdiagnosis of gout when it was Mortons Neuroma.Good I thing I saw a specialist who told me I needed weekly shots for seven weeks, which took care of the problem.

Disrespectful office, terrible service

Had to wait two hours after scheduled appointment to see MD. Office staff was rude and acted like I should consider myself lucky to have the privilege of waiting that long and that I was unreasonable and selfish to expect any different. Office staff said such a wait is normal and that I should call ahead to see if MD was running late every time because MD had to see sicker patients ahead of less sick ones. Not ok--if MD needs to reschedule "less sick" patients, then do so: don't waste my time and act like it's my responsibility to anticipate and cater to their unprofessional behavior. This office is not somehow above the rules of common courtesy simply because it's a high-and-mighty doctor's office. Besides, other MDs manage to respect patients' time--how is it that this office "can't"?

Some times the wait is long due to emergencies, which is understandable.If you call before you come in you can get an acurate back up time and it's bad.but the dr. and his staff are very caring and are concerned about your health, and they will track you down to get you in there to follow up.
