About Dr. Joel Ang

Family Medicine, HIV & Hep C Diagnosis & Treament, Diabetes, LGBT Healthcare, STI, HIV PReP. Lab work performed at the time of service. PLEASE ALLOW up to 2 HOURS for your appointment. During this time laboratory work, history, vital signs, & baseline procedures such as EKG, Pulmonary Function, and/or Bone Density assessments are done prior to physician consultation so that Dr. Ang will have the results available to discuss with you. This does lead to longer visit time (up to 2 hours) but eliminates second visits to review. 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. 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. WE REQUIRE current insurance information prior to the visit. We will set-up your account in advance of your visit and send you your patient portal invitation. Without insurance information 24 hours ahead of the appointment we may not be able to honor your appointment. Women's PAP exams are NOT performed on the first visit. CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES FOR WEIGHT MANAGEMENT, PAIN, OR ADD/ADHD are not prescribed. Patients are referred to the appropriate specialist.

Best doctor I've ever seen. Easy to speak with and offers quality care and advice. Every other doctor I've been tomakes me not want to come back (poor advice, long waits, unhelpful, etc), but Dr. Ang makes me want to take preventative care of myself.

Dr Ang’s office is like a factory for annual check ups. You go through different rooms to do different tests, and then Dr Ang sees you for 5 to 10min after barely looking at your results. On top of it all, I received bills for blood tests that weren’t covered by my insurance (which normally covers 100%). After discussing with Dr Ang’s office and my insurance I could not get these bills canceled and have now received mail from a debt collector to pay these bills I should have never received. I strongly recommend that you look for a more serious doctor if you want to actually be checked of by a professional who cares!

Dr Ang and his staff are very professional, super efficient and great to deal with. They give you a super comprehensive assessment of your condition and general help and much of the lab work being done on the premises while you are there and in most cases before you even see the doctor is very unique and impressive! Great experience and I think I have found a new preferred PCP on my first visit.

Dr. Ang was fantastic as was his staff. The whole process in lengthy but it's worth it because they test EVERYTHING. Once you book your appointment your confirmation email does tell you to expect the entire appointment to take two hours so I was able to let my boss know ahead of time.

Dr. Ang is a caring, open-minded, outgoing doctor who is there for you. He understands that before you can be treated he first needs to listen - and respect where you're coming from. There may not be an issue or one of severity, and either way he is not fazed. Big bonus points for having standard tests done each visit before you see him so that he can track if anything has changed since your last visit. As a GP however, many in-depth issues mean he has to refer you elsewhere for follow-up, but it's good to know he can serve as a focal point for all of your consults.

I really appreciate Dr. Ang's earnest and genuinely positive demeanor. You go through a number of tests (blood, ekg, bone density, & lung capacity), but never really feel like you're being poked and prodded. It's really helpful because Dr. Ang can get a clearer picture of your health when he sees you. He's also just a very likable guy and makes sure you know what you need to do to improve or maintain your health.

Aggressive, nonchalant and loud in describing sensitive medical results then responds with sarcasm when his tone was pointed out. I would expect bedside manners to be sensitive to one’s condition and be respectful in speaking to a patient. Can’t return to this doctor as I was very offended.

The advance work to facilitate the intake was excellent between their on line forms and ZocDoc. There was advance notice that the visit would be long - not a quick in and out - and to prepare for that. There is additional paperwork that has to be done at the time of visit and the staff responded to all questions. The blood draw, urinalysis, EKG, and bone density looks to be a lot but all the results were there by the time I consulted with Dr. Ang and the information was useful to establishing a treatment plan. The patient portal provides relevant information quickly. He is personable, a great listener, and responsive to questions. I am glad I happened upon his practice.

I've been looking for a PCP to establish long term care with and finally found him. Dr. Ang and his team were efficient and I loved that it only took one visit to get all tests and discuss the results. A couple of my results came back abnormal and Dr. Ang walked me through each test (abnormal and normal), told me what to change to improve certain scores and what activities to maintain. Overall, excellent experience and I would recommend.

Amazing experience - different "stations" to rotate through to get all of your medical history in - bloodwork, urine samples, physical questionnaire, even an EKG and bone density screen! Spoke with the good doctor for a good 30 minutes; very attentive, did not feel rushed, and was super amicable and friendly. I will be back, and can't wait to go!

This was a positive experience from the time I called to the time I arrived. Each member of the staff was welcoming, friendly and competent. Blood work was seamless! Didn't even feel it! Extremely thorough exam for a new patient! They did full blood work panel, urine sample, EKG, bone density exam and had me answer a series of wellness questions. My short but good visit with the Doctor was very good.
