I love that the office is a block away from the train station, it made finding his office easy! Dr. Anthony was very informative! He explained everything in full detail, and because of this, made me feel comfortable sharing information. I am Excited that I found my GI doctor!

The P.A. was very thorough. She went through all of my testing results from previous doctors that I brought with me, asked a lot of questions. When Dr. Ng came into the room, he listened to all of my symptoms, medicalhistory, concerns, etc. He took the time to explain how the GI tract works, what my diagnosis was, what my treatment options were, etc. He answered all questions I had and made me feel much better. Dr. Ng is great and knowledgeable and his staff is wonderful.

I was a little ambivalent about this appointment after waiting over an hour to be seen in the small, tucked away office in Chinatown. However, both the Dr. Ng and Nurse Practitioner who saw me were phenomenal. They were extremely knowledgeable,talked with me thoroughly to explain and analyze all the problems I was having and addressed possible solutions thoroughly and with care. By far one of the best specialists I have seen and their kindness was just another bonus.

I was a bit shock to see the waiting room full when I arrived for my 11:30 emergency appointment. I was expecting an hour wait for sure. To my surprise, I was seen within 30mins. I appreciate a doctor who cankeep their appointments. Dr Ng, the PA and receptionist were all friendly and helpful. Overall a great experience.

The wait was over an hour. I went to the front desk to tell them I wanted to cancel my appointment, and suddenly a PA was able to see me. The PA was very informative, and I only saw Dr. Ngtoward the end of the appointment. They really shouldn't post that there are all these openings on ZocDoc - it said I could pick any time of day, and now I know why. They're totally overbooked. People were waiting in the hallway. That is totally unprofessional and unacceptable. Overall the care seems good, I got what I needed, but I don't have a casual 1.5 hours to spare in the middle of my day for a 20 minute appointment.

Dr Ng was super nice and informative. I waited about 30 minutes to be seen and then sat with his nurse who asked about my symptoms and my history. She didn’t have the best bedside manner but Dr Ng was muchwarmer and comforting. He sent me downstairs to get some blood tests done and came up with a treatment plan and made sure I understood and felt comfortable with everything along the way.

Rude and impatient front desk! Wait is too long! A full waiting room. It gets very annoying. Without notice, they will book you even on a very busy fully packed day. They will say something like:"come before 4pm." Because after 4pmthey are about to close. They don't care about your valuable time in the waiting room for 2 hours. All they care is your insurance copay. They want max booking. Very very rarely I saw Dr Ng directly. After 1-2 hours wait, he can mostly spend with me quick 2 minutes before he ran away. Every time I only see his assistants not a real doctor. They closes very early. Appointment must be booked before 4pm. It is not convenient. No morning booking either. If 15 minutes late, the appointment was canceled without any notice. By the time you got there, you wasted your time and trip. REMEMBER: THE ONLY TIME MATTERS IS THIS DR'S NOT PATIENTS'. THEY ONLY CARE YOUR COPAY.

The wait time was a bit much (about an hour), but when I finally got called in I saw a PA (Poline Yiu) who was very kind, respectful, and knowledgeable. I saw Dr. Ng near the end of the appointment, wherehe summed up what I’d discussed with the PA in a few minutes. Overall, it was a comfortable experience.

The office is quite busy, but well organized and the wait time is ok. I met with one of the assistant doctor first, he is very professional and listen to my description of symptoms carefully and addressed each one of them.A course of examination and treatment is then well planned. Doctor Ng came in later to restate the important points after discussed with his assistant, and he sure is very professional, too. Highly recommended.

I think this doctor was great! He seemed really knowledgeable and Mike he really cared to find out what was going on with me. He gave me plenty of suggestions to try before actually recommending a colonoscopy. I am happy thatI found him. I did not enjoy reading over an hour to be seen, but I felt better after talking with him.

the office is mostly unwelcoming and the attendants at the main desk are indifferent to patients, mostly disgruntled and probably overworked. Please be prepared to wait anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes in a crowded subway like sitting space.Also the receptionists handed me a form which was used by someone else and just crossed the original text and asked me to use the "used" form. Dr. Anthony is a saving grace of this office.
