Specialties: Family Medicine ages 15 and above, HIV Diagnosis and Management, Hepatitis C Treatment, Diabetes, LGBT Healthcare, Sexually Transmitted Diseases, HIV PreP. PLEASE ALLOW 2 HOURS for your appointment. During this time laboratory work, history, vital signs, & baseline procedures such as EKG, Pulmonary Function, and Bone Density assessments are done prior to physician consultation. Comprehensive care is the prevention and management of disease based on your current & past health, family history, & life events. Establishing a baseline assessment of your health today is central to ongoing care. Women's PAP exams are NOT performed on the first visit. PLEASE NOTE: DR ANG IS NOT ACCEPTING BLUE CHOICE/BLUE CHOICE ADVANTAGE OR UNITED HEALTHCARE INSURANCES. Philosophy: We are a 48 year old practice in the heart of Dupont Circle that performs customized comprehensive, preventive primary care with an in-house moderate complexity laboratory. I serve as a physician and lab director of the practice. This means that we provide comprehensive care for everyone and that 98% of lab testing is performed in our office and the patient receives their labs at the time of the visit. This does lead to longer visit time (up to 2 hours) but eliminates second visits to review labs. Data driven medicine allows for early identification of disease and also identifies trends requiring your attention. As each patient is unique, this creates a dialogue between patient and physician and what I value in this is the potential for a long term relationship with me and our office. I value the time that a patient relays their stories and find that type of relationship with a patient to be most rewarding.
Verified Patient Reviews
Enjoyed Dr. Ang, as this was my first visit to a PCP in the DC area. Very courteous and professional. Plan on your visit taking up to 2 hours however. They do blood work and other tests in house.
The doctor was very professional and thorough! I would recommend to anyone!
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 to room 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!
My visit has been very pleasant. You have to go through some tests with the medical assistants as a new patient, but I respect the check ups demanded by the doctor. I enjoyed talking to Dr. Ang. He is very knowledgable and straightforward. The staff are really friendly and amazing. I feel welcomed every time. I'm really grateful to find his office with amazing staff. I highly suggest everyone to visit Dr. Ang's office.
Dr. Ang is great, and the process of the office to be data-driven and have in-office labs is really awesome.
Great experience! love how Dr. Ang takes a data-driven approach to understand the health and wellness of his patients. I left with some good insights about my health. thank you!
My appointment was thorough. The staff was great. And I love my new doctor.
Lab tests were right then and there and I got tests I never had before. I’m immeaditly making him my PCP
Great Doctor and excellent service. Quick results. Great manner.
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!!
Quick, good and efficient
Dr. Joel Ang was very professional and friendly. He asked me questions and did the check ins he needed. He is really nice attended all my questions too. I would definitely recommend Dr Ang to my friends!
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 only had 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.
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.
I had such a pleasant first visit to Dr. Ang! The staff was lovely and quickly performed all of the tests and surveys that needed to be done. Dr. Ang is thorough and to the point and answered all of my questions. The office is setup us cozy as well!
Very friendly, professional, and efficient staff. Offices are located in older building (converted row home?) Will return in the future. Would recommend.
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 but he was nice enough to try to solve it.
As a new patient I was very impressed by the thorough diagnostic analysis and the expediency of their results. The team is very nice and runs a tight operation. One can plan on aging under the care of Joel
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 that the office is in a townhouse with odd layout and decoration--but I got a same-day appointment and the location is great.
Perfect all around.
As a first time patient Dr. Ang did a lot of tests on me which took over an hour but it didn't feel like I was waiting that long since I was constantly doing tests. Dr. Ang was great. He is incredibly intelligent and solved all my problems. I look forward to going to him in the future.
This guy is so legit. Cares! Runs all the necessary tests so that he has a baseline of med history. Very happy I found him!
Very thorough physical, excellent staff and friendly, caring doc.
Professional and reviews test results day of
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 talk to and covered everything. I had no questions unanswered when I left. Great experience!
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 also have 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.
Very efficient and smooth experience. I would recommend this doctor.
Excellent care, I love the integrated value chain, Dr. Ang covers everything.
Great atmosphere, knowledgeable office
Friendly and professional doctor and staff!
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 than what 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.
Very friendly and efficient staff.
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 that you 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!
Super thorough exam. Takes a little less than 2 hours, but they do all the lab work there. Was really nice to not have to wait a week for lab results. He's great!
He was very personable and informative. I would definitely recommend doctor Ang.
Dr. Ang and his staff were perfect! Highly recommend!
I was extremely impressed with Dr. Ang and his practice. Their appointment setup (blood drawn as soon as you check in ) means you get to go over the results of your any blood tests and the assistant's exams with the doctor during the same appointment. Dr. Ang went through every detail of what he was seeing from my tests and talked with me about any concerns/things he wanted to point out. On top of that Dr. Ang and his staff were friendly, efficient, and seemed to really care about their work.
Thorough health check. It takes a good 2 hrs but you get pretty much all lab results there and then. Doctor is friendly and professional, I would highly recommend
My first appointment experience was great and I recommend fully! I was late to the office and the receptionist made sure to call and email me back after she had missed my call. She was friendly and answered all my questions. The medical assistant did feel rushed and serious, which made me a bit uneasy. However, the doctor was helpful, knowledgeable, and answered all my questions. The results were available immediately. A handful of results were available within the next three business days due to some lab testing machines being unavailable that appointment day and additional orders. The doctor also answered my online messages within a day. I really appreciate the effective and organized online platform.
Very thorough and knowledgeable. Great experience.
The staff was super friendly and very efficient! One of the best experiences I've had at a doctors office! Highly recommend them!
Visit took over your hours but the office ran a lot of tests so they were thorough. Office appeared a little unsatisfactory though.
The appointment for the annual physical takes 2 hours because they do the lab work on site, and Dr. Ang explains everything to you in person. I rather have this than getting a report in the mail and not having anything explained to me (which is how most places do it).
I got there and they had me wait 30 minutes before telling me it could be 2 hours until i see the doctor. Why did I schedule for a certain time then?
