Dr. Wang seemed like an excellent doctor and was very attententive to my concerns, however the wait time was extremely long and when I checked the sign in sheet I saw I was booked for the same time and same doctoras another patient. I arrived 20 minutes before my appointment to fill out paper and he had arrived after me and they still called him back first. I was in a rush that day and ended up waiting over an hour and only getting 20 minutes to try and explain everything to the doctor because I had to leave. I think had I had a signifcant amount of time with the doctor it wouldve made up for the delay but I did not. Still she was very nice and understanding.

Dr. Wang is lovely. Very attentive, and personable. She is also clearly very smart and knows what she's doing. She makes you feel comfortable and taken care of. Doesn't rush you. Talks through your options. I liked her so much thatI asked her if she could be my GP. She said no, but she can be my ENT GP and referred me to a general internist that she thought was a good fit. I highly recommend Dr. Wang.

The office changed the appointment location from Culver City to Santa Monica without asking me first. It wasn't a big deal for me, but it may not be OK for everyone. Dr. Wang herself was great. She answered my questions and provided options.

I saw Dr. Wang for the first time recently. She was absolutely great and I have no complaints about her. I do want to note, however, that it took and hour and a half for me to see her. The receptionistsaid they have been having problems with Zoc Doc and they apparently had no record of my appointment being booked. I contacted Zoc Doc and they hinted that Dr. Wang's office is not doing their part on their end to confirm the appointments. I ended up paying $14 for parking in the building lot-- street parking is hard to find. I do recommend seeing Dr. Wang. I just recommend calling her office to confirm your appointment.

Dr Wang was very nice, friendly and courteous in a very Professional manner. She listened carefully as I described the reason for my visit, then explained to me what could be the cause, and the options of diagnosis. She examined meusing one of the options, then carefully explained to me what might have happened, based on her examination and what I'd told her. She prescribed some medication and also recommended a follow up Test with another Doctor, as a necessary precaution. She even asked me if I had any questions for her, and when I mentioned an article that I'd read on the Internet about that condition, she able to explain its different types and stages and where mine was. I was very satisfied and impressed by her knowledge, patience and professionalism.

She has a lot of knowledge and took time to answer all of my questions. She understood my concerns and was very respectful. If she is going to get back to you w/ any results (blood, culture, etc.) make sure toask that she contacts you even if the results are normal instead of only if something is wrong.

The doctor was very good and professional. NO questions. Office woman was very nice. I was coming far from LA and made a mistake and went to LA 20th street. They said doctor still can see me even I was hourlate. I just was sad that since office person on the phone told me that they do not varidate parking, I parked on the street. I did not see the sign carefully because I was running out of time, but I got ticket... Then office woman offered validate the parking....

The office is good at getting you in if you have a sudden medical need to see the doctor (sudden ear ache), but she doesn't really have time to answer all your questions. She fixed my ear issue quickly, but rushedout without addressing other concerns I had, so I felt the need to make a second appointment to answer all my questions; but then I didn't have the money for a second co-payment or another day off from work, so I think I'll just wait until all my other concerns become an emergency, or I can find a doctor who works on weekends.
