Dr. Eng is so intelligent and that makes a great doctor. More importantly he treats you like you do have a working knowledge of your illness. Would definitely recommend.

I had been in intense pain for a few days and Dr. Eng did everything to help me- including letting me come back same day for an endoscopy!! I did not imagine I could get a fix so quickly and amso appreciative that Dr.Eng did everything he could to accommodate my busy schedule.

Everything is well organized in Dr. Eng's clinic. Chrissy and Shelly from the reception area are welcoming, making me feel less nervous about my condition; the nurse, Stephanie, who drew my blood, has a light touch and is very professional;Asia is very informative on what medication I should not have taken before the allergy test, and that saves me from having an automatic negative result, because I had just taken atarax before i went to the clinic, which is good even if i had to reschedule, and Dr. Eng,? Well, he is a first-class doctor who really listens to me. He gave me all his attention as he listens to my medical history, my concerns, and my suggestion without rushing me, making me feel that we have a joint collaboration on addressing my problems.; i could sense a lot of empathy from him. The clinic, too, is clean. On a grade range of 1-5 stars, I give him 5++++++++

I told Dr. Eng that I have terrible reactions to wheat, he said that it was a popular complaint. He treated me for the symptoms and referred me to an internist (that was out of network). I am just now findingout from a different gastro that I am celiac a couple of years later.

Waited 30 minutes before being taken to the exam room (no paper work to fill out, just waited), waited another 15 minutes to see doctor. Aside from the long wait time, everything went smoothly. I needed a few tests and appreciatedhow the doctor was able to make sure I get them all done this week. The staff in general, was not overly-friendly but everyone got the job done with what I needed.

after the initial 2 hour wait - I was well received by Dr. Hon-Ming. He was great bedside manner. The staff was a bit all over the place though - when taking my blood, we changed rooms a few times, alsothe nurse put the vials on my lap because she didn't have a side table with her. I felt a little bit disoriented.

My appointment was scheduled for 8am, but when i arrived the office was closed and i could not reach any of the staff. I was forwarded to an answering service and was told that the office did not open until 8:30am!Why are these appointment times listed if they are NOT actually available?! When i was in the room with the doctor he didn't give me much information regarding my condition, besides a pamphlet to read when i left the office. I feel like i did not get any answers or help in how to treat myself but he was quick to schedule me to come in for a procedure. I felt rushed and left with NO information regarding my condition.

Very disappointing. Felt rushed through the discussion about my symptoms, felt shamed when I told him what I had / had not been given by drs after a recent surgical procedure (literally scoffed at the idea that o hadn't been givenany antibiotics - felt so foolish that I called my orthopedic surgeon after the appointment to see if I was wrong - I wasn't ). Had blood tests - said I would be called with results on Friday or Monday - no call / no follow up. I would not recommend this dr in any way.

He's alright but honestly not the best I've experienced. Pros are he's on call off hours so if you have an emergency and need to get in touch with him you can by calling his office. He's probably very good inother ways as well but I didn't find seeing him very helpful in that I felt like he wasn't totally paying attention to the issues I was having - feeling dismissed sometimes and being prescribed treatments without full reasoning as to why it's being done. It seems a little disorganized as well at the office because I had many scheduling issues and one of the front desk ladies was also always very rude and disinterested to help explain things. Follow-up and treatment plans are also unclear - was never really explained exactly how to care for the issue I had or how to prep for tests. Eventually I gave up and found another gastro.
