Verified Patient Reviews
The intake nurse was excellent! Great personality and manner in dealing with patients. I like Dr. Kwok and trust him - but I wish he would actually look at me when he's speaking. While his responses to my questions show he's actually listening to me, it's disrespectful to not look at someone when you are speaking to them, or they are speaking to you. I didn't care for that at all, but it won't keep me from seeing him as a professional.
High level of expertise. Nice offc staff.
The staff was excellent and the doctor very informative and straight forward. Everyone professional and nice.
Easy to talk to and very informative
It took a few minutes to complete forms and verify other forms that I completed on line Following that, I was taken to a treatment room and the Doctor saw me. All staff was were very polite. I would recommend going there for anyone needing there expertise.
The doctor did not even give me eye contact. He seemed very irritated and asked questions that almost made me feel beneath him. I am very concerned about whatever is making me sick, but he did not seem to be as concerned. I did NOT feel good about this visit.
He was attentive and listened to my concerns. He wasn't quick to brush anything off and give me the usual "You're young, it's probably nothing" speech. He actually advised a plan to begin finding the root of the problem. I'll definitely be back to visit Dr. Kwok.
He was quite clear with his explanations and advice , and took the time needed.
Dr. Kwok is the best. I trust him 100% Wish all the Physicians were tvis good
The nurses were all highly sympathetic and kind. Dr. Kwok, however, seemed bored and perhaps exasperated, as though my visit was nothing more than a mild inconvenience to him. There was no sympathy for my evident suffering and, while his advised medical treatment may prove effective, his manner left much to be desired. Additionally, it was not made clear to me whether I would need to schedule my own lab work appointment or if it had been made for me, which, although a minor issue, is nonetheless frustrating.
When I go to any doctor I like to feel comfortable and that they care about me and I can say I found these characteristics in Doctor Kwok and his staff. He explained me everything in the best way so could understand. They are so nice and profesionals, and the wait time is minimum for those who hates to wait too much in doctor appointments. ??
With the amount of paperwork required,if your app or systems could provide a process to complete it at home would save valuable upfront time,especially people that work.
Got right in after the paper work. Love the on-line scheduling. He seems very knowledge and provided ample time for questions.
Very professional and courteous, yet friendly,. He gave me all the time needed to determine my situation. I like this man.
Quick and easy. Staff very helpful. Thank you
They claimed I did not have an appointment? So I don't know why I used this system when they obviously aren't checking for appointments.
I walked into the office and I did not even have time to finish the paperwork before I was being taken back. It was only a few minutes after getting to the back that the doctor came in. I was only in the office for 30 minutes and knew I had a doctor that was thorough and cared. Dr. Kwok's bedside manner was amazing. He really listened to me and gave me several options to choose. He was not pushing all of these tests that aren't necessary at this time.
Dr. Kwok was very professional and thorough in both asking questions about the questionnaire I filled out and explaining the procedure. The staff was very friendly. Because I filled out most of the paper work on Zocdoc I was more comfortable going in.
Office staff was very professional and Dr Kwok was also very professional and thorough. Great experience!
Office is very professional and really nice. Dr Kwok is very thorough and asks questions. Didn't rush us
He's a very bright doctor. He isn't very talkative but what he says is right on target. I would highly recommend him.
Very professional staff. Dr. Don was great! Highly recommend.
Dr. Kwok listened carefully and thoughtfully. He hand wrote notes rather than trying to key in electronic stuff that would divert his attention from me. His explanations and recommendations for treatment and follow up were expressed clearly and he was helpful when answering my questions.
He was smart and helpful, not the friendliest, but got the job done.
Very professional staff and very clean office
He only spent 5 minutes with me sounds like he is super busy, so he has no time to talk more about my concern.
Very professional. Took time to discuss my situation to my satisfaction.
He takes the time to talk with you and listen to what you need to tell him. Very positive and supportive attitude!
Thorough explanation. Nice
I scheduled the appointment online for Thursday 8/13/15 at &:30am. I received a call to confirm the appointment and they had it as 1:15Pm on Wednesday 8/12/15??????????????
While getting an appointment to see Donald Kwok, MD, is NOT an easy task (perhaps because I had last seen him five years prior), I persevered and waited the couple of months to get in to see him. I will NOT see anyone else but Dr Donald Kwok; or, in his absence, his brother, Dr Gregory Kwok. They are experts in their field of medicine. Dr Donald Kwok takes the time to answer all my questions, and addresses all of my concerns with clarity. Going forward, it will be a matter of automatic follow up, so no more long waiting periods to see him. Dr Donald Kwok is a true professional and someone that I can TRUST. His front desk staff is welcoming and helpful. His nurse assistant, although a bit reserved professionally, can be brought to smile; and, I liked her. The office and examining rooms are kept very clean, and the overall environment is professionally inviting.
Spacious convenient offices. Doctor explained procedure fully, including rare potential complications. Office staff were friendly and efficient. Convenient and flexible dates for scheduling procedure. Good overall experience.
Easy to talk to, brief and to the point. His nurse is very friendly and makes the appointment very enjoyable.
It took a month to get in. I told him I have not been able to eat anything, I can no longer work, sleep, or function this way. He never looked me in the eye and told me to try and elimination diet and come back. I didn't get to this point, become this sick, to be told to "change my diet". I don't have a diet if I can't eat.
Very pleasant staff. Dr very professional
When visiting Dr. Donald Kwok, I feel calm and respected. Even though his office is quite far from my home, I will continue seeing Dr. Kwok for any gastro problems which may come up in the future.
The office personnel were very professional and efficient. I was in timely and saw Dr. Kwok at my appointment time. He was extremely knowledgeable and asked me the right questions pertaining to my problems and made good suggestions. His nurse was the highlight of my visit, very cheerful and positive. The environment is very clean and calming.
Very pleasant. Dr. Donald Kwok was nice and explained everything well. Staff was very nice and accommodating as well.
Great as usual His assistant is the best.
Wonderful, caring doctor. Takes his time and listens.
THis was my first visit with him and he was very pleasant and took a lot of time getting history from me. I really liked his easy going manner and was not RUSHED!
Very thorough in explaining the results of my procedure. Over-all experience with office visits and procedure was very good. Appreciate it!
as well as expected; the doctor hasn't had time to review records from other doctors in the same partnership that have done said procedures
