My quick appointment took two hours because of the long wait. She didn't give me any answers. Kept talking off topic. Condescending. Will not return.

This was not one of the better interactions I have had with a doctor. She barely introduced herself when she entered my office and did not introduce at all the nurse who accompanied her. This made me feel weird, that some random person was sitting in on my appointment. She then rolled her eyes at every response I gave, and stared into her laptop to try to avoid eye contact.Tthe whole interaction was embarrassing for me, like I wasn't giving her the straight forward answers that would have made her job easier. So then she told the nurse to do a PFT, and didn't tell me what that meant--what it was, why I needed it and what it would measure. These minor explanations are not only appropriate, but also for someone who is educated enough to understand the rationale, I would like to be treated as such. She then didn't walk me through the rest of the visit. A better doctor would have said, "Ok, let's check your breathing, sorry, this stethoscope might be cold." She just ripped my shirt up and told me to breathe. It was awkward and she made zero effort at rapport which made me even less forthcoming with information, as my responses made her roll her eyes in front of me several times. Then when the results of the scratch tests came in, I asked her, "So how severe is this allergy?"And instead of telling me what the scratch tests on my back read, she said, "Well you're the one who should be answering that question because you're obviously the one who can't live with these symptoms." WOW. This was an allergy which I didn't think was severe or worsening or even relevant (bc it had been years since I learned of it in a blood test and back then the result was minor at best," She then accused me of never telling her about the bloodwork, but to be fair, she never asked. I had a number of other questions, and as a lay person, I sought her expertise, no the other way around, but she just shrugged at me and I got no answer. It was an all around painful interaction and she acted high and mighty, showed no empathy or even a modicum of respect for me. Don't waste your time with this person.

Good Doctor. Exceptionally long wait times.

Dr Fung is great as long as you don't mind waiting well over an hour to see her after checking in.

Dr. Fung is not a caring doctor. She talked to me in a condescending manner. Will never use her again. The nurses were quite nice though.
