Came in for my annual physical. I travel a lot for work, so I sometimes go far too long without seeing a proper doctor. When I arrived, I was taken through a well-organized battery of tests (urine, blood, EKG, etc). Therewas pretty much no waiting in between. Once I finished, I think I waited for five minutes for Dr. Ang to see me. He was great, direct and friendly. Perfect bedside manner, understanding of my own unique circumstances. He also really knows what he's talking about. I'll be coming to him for my next physical without a doubt.

It was my first time seeing Dr. Ang and I could not have been more impressed with both him and his staff. Specifically, the way in which they explained every part of the process to me, what was going on, why,and what I should expect to see. Dr. Ang made me feel welcome and comfortable, which is not an easy thing to do on a person’s first visit to a new physician. Granted, I’ve only seen them once, but I would strongly recommend Dr. Ang’s Office to friends, family, and everyone else.

Dr. Ang is so thorough! I initially thought the battery of tests was excessive, but he diagnosed my illness promptly and because of all the data he collected was able to give an accurate diagnosis. He prescribed medicine and promised to follow up.

Ok, people, this practice is going to charge you a lot if you are not careful in a very sneaky and not ethical way. It was my first visit and I just wanted to have my annual "wellness check up" andstated it clear verbally and on the paper asking my purpose to visit. I thought it was odd that they did a lot of tests and I didn't worry since I mentioned very clearly I am here to have my ANNUAL CHECKUP. I had a busy month so I just paid the bill already with my other doctors' visits altogether but it was odd that I was charged that much so I decided to look at the details they charged me for. When I checked my statement, I was shocked. They charged me for various tests and I was not informed that it is not a part of the annual check up. They even charged me about "mental consultation", are you kidding me???? I remember there were couple of check boxes asking me such as "Have you felt isolated" and stuff and it was one of the bunch of papers they asked me to answer. I called my insurance company and they said an annual checkup is free under my insurance plan and the practice seemed totally ripped me off and they will back up a further investigation if I want to. I was so furious but you know, it is another stress and paperwork I have to go through... I just decided to let it go and never go back to his office again but at least I would like to warn somebody interested in visiting his office... BE AWARE and make sure that if their service still belongs to your visit purpose before they push you through a bunch of tests.

Dr. Ang and the entire staff were incredibly warm and ready to answer any questions I had. As the other comments mention, every appointment, regardless of reason for visit, is 2 hours. By the time you see Dr. Ang, he hasall your information and walks you through everything which was so helpful! The exams were very thorough, and it was nice to have time to chat about my concerns at every stage.

Even though the appointment was just under two hours, all my blood work was done in-house so there was no need for a follow up! The staff was pleasant and efficient. They fit a lot of equipment in a small space.There are lots of stairs so I do not recommend if you have issues with mobility. Dr. Ang was great - super efficient and friendly! Would definitely recommend.

The office is located in a dilapidated Dupont row home, not well kept or particularly clean. The receptionist was downright surly and curt. And although you are told to leave 2 hours for the appointment, I felt rushed from room toroom for various aspects of the checkup, up and down stairs.

Although I arrived to doctor's office earlier than my appointment, they took me for the tests right away. As soon as the tests finished doctor was ready to see me and my results were already on his desk. It was pretty fast! He has great attitude. I highly recommend him!

I have never been more impressed with a doctor, his/her staff and overall experience than with Dr. Ang's office. I was blown away with the efficiency and comprehensiveness of my annual/new patient physical. The entire team is a well-oiled machine,and they even have an in-house technician to perform the blood work analysis, so gone are the days of having to schedule a follow up visit just to go over the blood tests/work. Everyone was authentically friendly and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Ang and his team!!

I really enjoyed Dr. Ang. He is fantastic. However, I think it is good to know before you go in that they run a full set of exams, so a general appointment takes roughly 2 hours.

Everyone at the clinic is very welcoming and nice — I felt at ease immediately. After requesting the appointment on Zocdoc, I had the chance to fill out paperwork online, which I appreciated. When I got to the clinic, I onlyhad to sign forms. Dr. Joel Ang’s team was very thorough and comprehensive in their examination. When I finally got to meet Dr. Joel Ang, I find that he had great character, and was helpful in explaining my condition to me, giving advice, and even recommending further doctors to visit. When I had to call the clinic later in the day with pharmacy inquiries, the team was easy to reach and quick to pass my message along.

Know they will do a LOT of blood work BEFORE the appointment for a comprehensive baseline. A few of the tests will not be necessary but are part of the program. We didn’t have much help figuring out our problem buthe was nice enough to try to solve it.

First visit and went for annual physical. Blood work and urinalysis done on site so doctor has results when you meet him, which is great. Doctor was friendly, very thorough, and didn't rush you. The only slightly negative mark is thatthe office is in a townhouse with odd layout and decoration--but I got a same-day appointment and the location is great.

I felt very uncomfortable in this office. It is a converted row house with a strange set up. They made me do lots of tests without telling me why, and apparently that is standard procedure for every visit here. They alsohave an in-house lab, which makes the reasons for extensive lab tests suspicious (financially motivated). Although Dr. Ang seemed knowledgeable, I just did not get a good feeling about the practice.

My appointment was very satisfying! The appointment was rather long, however it was very thorough. I had many lab tests done on the spot. The results were available when I met with Dr. Ang. Dr. Ang is pleasant, easy to talkto and covered everything. I had no questions unanswered when I left. Great experience!

I'll start with what I really like. Dr. Ang was AWESOME, As someone who has had semi-awkward doctors for a long time, Dr. Ang was great! So easy to talk to! Be prepared: This appointment will be a bit different thanwhat you are use to (I personally liked it though). It starts with your blood and urine samples. Then you go and do EKG and Spirometry tests (may be due to this being my first visit.) Overall, total time of the visit was right around 2 hours. However, the amount of time I was actually just sitting around was about 30-45 minutes. This is because they are going to give you the results of your blood tests the same day. The rest of your test results should be available on your online portal within 48 hours. The one final thing to be aware of is the office is basically in a house. I was pretty taken aback by this at first, but overall, my experience today was very good and I really genuinely liked Dr. Ang.

Dr. Ang's staff was lovely and wonderful. The office is very well run. You are there for two hours because of the thoroughness. I would say that the actual exam/time with the doctor felt rushed. I also think that there were more tests than needed to be run.

Dr. Ang is great! I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a PCP. The only thing worth noting or possibly negative is that a typical appointment takes roughly 2 hours. The benefit of the Long appointment is thatyou are able to have the results of your blood work in that time. In my opinion this is worth it. Dr. Ang his staff are professional and efficient. Dr. Ang especially is very personable and I am very satisfied with my visit. I found my PCP for the foreseeable future!
