Dr. Wong is efficient and professional, while still being super warm and approachable. She is interested in your overall quality of health, not just the numbers. She allowed plenty of time for questions, no matter how small, and helped me simplifywhat I should do in order to stay on task with my health plan.

I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Melissa Wong. She is very thorough, asking many questions about my health habits and history. She made sure I was comfortable and explained everything she was doing while performing my health exam. Itfelt like she really cared and I never felt rushed. To be honest, I feel I’m most comfortable with her compared to all of my past doctors! The front desk receptionist was also very pleasant. The office is not as modern, but I highly recommend the exceptional service here!

This is my second time meeting with Dr. Wong for my annual checkup. I'll be seeing her again for future yearly check-ups and if I have any other medical problems in the meantime. She's friendly, professional and efficient. You do haveto book in advance, though. She's often booked out for a month for this location as she's only there a 2-3 days per week. Details: I waited a few minutes for the office to be ready for my appointment. One of the assistants took my height, weight, blood pressure and heart rate. Then I was was escorted to a room to wait for Dr. Wong for 5 minutes or less. Even though the last time I saw her was a year ago, she still remembered information about me from last time, which was nice. Being a vegan, I appreciated that she didn't try to offer nutritional advice to me. That is one frustration I have with many other medical professionals. Dr. Wong is a good listener and doesn't generally assume. Rather, she asks questions and lets you tell how it is. She ordered the blood tests that I wanted and needed and recommended a few specialists to see for a particular concern I had. This office is located in Chinatown. It's not fancy, but utilitarian and straightforward. The office is easy to get to via public transport or car. The area is pretty safe.

I was a little late and didn't get scolded for that. Melissa remembered some points from my last visit and asked me about them, which I felt was both pleasant and prudent.

Visited the Stockton location. It was sometimes confusing knowing where to go (the lab for blood tests, etc. is down the hallway) and when I was good to leave, but Dr. Melissa Wong and all the staff were very friendly. Shewas very caring and approachable in a way that made me comfortable asking questions about my health concerns. All of the documents are in English and Chinese, if that is helpful for you.

The location is in Chinatown in a not well maintained building. (For example, the elevator inspection certificate is very expired...) The doctor was nice and professional and good for patients with limited English. However I wouldn't go herewith complicated problems. She had no information on gluten intolerance or help for my complaints of fatigue. She said I might be underweight but didn't provide help or seem concerned about unhealthy eating patterns. And suggested I get blood tested at a room down the hall that was dark with one woman crying in it (I noped it out of there!) I'll probably find another doctor next time, just not for me.

I randomly found Dr. Wong on ZocDoc and am happy I did. She's extremely knowledgeable and has tremendous bedside manner...makes you feel like she truly cares about your health rather than just treating you like a number. I've recommended her to friends who have also had similarly excellent experiences.

Dr. Wong was thoughtful and thorough. She looked at my past history and had it handy on her laptop. Though the office is bare bones, Dr. Wong used the technology to recall my history and discuss it in more detail. Shealso provided referrals for other overdue check ups I need. I felt like for the first time I had found a doctor that I would want to build a relationship with-- it has taken me many years to find a doctor who wasn't my pediatrician where I would not dread the visit.

I feel so fortunate to have found such a wonderful primary care physician in San Francisco and have ZocDoc to thank for leading me to Dr. Melissa Wong. Dr. Wong is everything I could ask for in a doctor. She ishonest, kind, genuine, smart, and takes as much time as necessary with her patients. On top of her own qualifications, every physician Dr. Wong has referred me to has been equally as impressive. I trust her judgement when it comes to my health and I also trust her judgement when choosing which specialist a patient should go to for outside help. I highly recommend Dr. Wong to anyone looking for a solid, dependable, trustworthy primary care physician.

I visited Dr. Wong's office for an annual check up. To be honest I was a little skeptical when I first walked into the office, it is very small, the building is slightly older. It seemed like Dr. Melissa Wong wasthe only physician in the office that day and my wait time was about 30 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. Despite all of that I absolutely loved Dr. Wong. She was very professional, listened to all of my concerns and asked all of the appropriate questions. Her bedside manner was great and I felt comfortable talking to her and asking questions. I will definitely be going back!

Though the office was a little hard to find with limited street facing signs and hall way direction, it is small and clean. The office is very organized and on top of things. Had me in quickly after paper work andI wait not even 5 minutes for additional information or prescriptions at the end of my appointment. Dr. Wong was friendly, knowledgable and sincere. I felt as she was more focused on uncovering the cause of the problem rather then just prescribing medication to mask it. On a second note, I had to visit for a last minute visit while ill. It was 4 pm and they were closing at 5. The got me in, examined and on my way with prescription in hand before 5pm. Again great example of a well organized office!
