Verified Patient Reviews
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 have to 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. She was 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.
Very polite and caring. The doctor was very thorough.
Friendly- Was able to put me at easy and I felt comfortable talking about my health. Knowledgeable- Were able to answer by questions and address my concerns. Efficient- Quick and easy
Excellent and stellar care, as always.
She was very nice and thoughtful for my first check up in years! Will definitely be back.
Dr. Melissa Wong is sweet and makes you feel very comfortable. Also very attentive to your details.
Dr. Wong was wonderfully attentive, listening carefully and asking good questions. At the end of the appointment, she was clear and helpful on next steps. Great doctor.
I had my first well-woman exam with Dr. Wong after searching for a new primary care physician for quite a while. Dr. Wong was extremely thoughtful, patient, and approachable during my visit. I look forward to having her as a partner in my health care
Dr Wong was great! She makes you feel very comfortable and is very informative.
She's amazing, listens to you and even calls you back when you have questions
First Visit- very pleased. I think I'm in good hands. Someone that will put all the health care pieces together from other doctors and look at the whole picture.
Melissa Wong is the ideal doctor. She listened to all of my concerns without jumping to conclusions or dismissing them like many of doctors i have seen in the past have done. She was also very polite! The staff in the front desk are also very helpful and kind! Would recommend 100%!
Friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend Dr Wong.
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 here with 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.
Great visit. There was no wait and Dr. Wong was very helpful and nice.
Dr. Wong was great! She was helpful, and very sweet :)
Dr. Wong is wonderful - personable, comfortable and extremely knowledgable above all. I could not recommend her more highly.
Definitely try to walk or take public transportation, because it is hard to find parking in the area! Dr. Wong was very informative, helpful, and efficient. I came for a women's exam and Dr. Wong was very professional and made sure I felt comfortable throughout the appointment.
Great experience! She was very friendly, professional and assuring. I did not feel rushed and was free to ask any and all of my concerns. I definitely recommend Dr. Wong!
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. She also 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.
Dr. Melissa Wong was extremely patient, professional, efficient, and comprehensive at addressing my concerns and I had a very positive visit overall!
Fantastic! I hate getting shots. Dr. Melissa Wang was great and made it easy!
Quick appointment but Dr. Wong is always very pleasant and involved.
Very competent, kind, and pleasant. Clearly sees a lot of patients, but took plenty of time with me and did what was necessary.
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 is honest, 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.
It was a good visit, but I was never called about my blood work results and it's been three weeks now.
Melissa is wonderful. She provided me with helpful information, investigated my issue, followed up with me on everything, and took my concerns seriously. I really appreciate her kindness and care.
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 was the 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!
Dr. Wong was great this morning during our appointment. She is very thorough, professional and even charming in manner. I would highly recommend her to any one in the Bay Area.
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 and I 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!
My visit with Dr. Wong was wonderful. I felt listened to, comfortable, and she answered all my (somewhat random) questions. I didn't feel rushed and felt comfortable having her as my doctor even on the first visit. I unfortunately will be leaving San Francisco, but would definitely visit her again if I were staying in town.
Dr. Melissa Wong and her staff were very lovely and efficient. I never felt rushed or not listened to the entire length of my appointment.
Great bedside manner, down to earth, knowledgeable, easy to talk to - pretty much everything you could possibly want in a Doctor.
Dr Wong made me feel comfortable and it was a very pleasant experience.
Dr. Wong was very preemptive during my visit and asked a ton of questions, which revealed some of the problems I did not think about.
Excellent doctor, she is knowledgeable and calm. She is very professional and pleasant. I will go back to her.
She generally did a really great job! Very pleasant, courteous, and professional. The appointment was quick and easy and pleasant. She addressed all of my concerns promptly and adequately, and even did a good job with dietary recommendations. A+.
Dr. Wong was great. Highly recommended.
Attentive, kind, and calm. I appreciated her thorough explanation of everything I had come in about and will definitely be back!
Great doctor with excellent bedside manner! Listens to your concerns and recommends practical solutions.
Dr. Wong is great and I'm glad I found her!
The office staff are kind and Melissa is polite and professional.
Dr. Wong was very thorough and attentive. She listened to my concerns, was patient in answering all of my questions, and recommended a path forward. I was very satisfied with my visit.
Everyone was friendly, and everything was pretty neat and organized. I was in and out pretty quickly!
The office itself could use a facelift, but the visit itself was excellent. Dr. Melissa Wong is very informative and professional. She explained everything very clearly and I left feeling much better and with no questions! Highly recommend.
very nice, listens and very informative!
The office building was a little hard to find, but other than that small hiccup, my visit was great. The waiting time was reasonable (around 10 minutes) and she was understanding, kind and efficient. My reason for coming to Melissa was just my annual checkup, so I didn't get a diagnosis.
Dr. Wong is a great doctor. She is very patient, listens to you well, and cares about her patients. Her team is also great and helped sort out some insurance problems for me.
She's patient, thoughtful and sweet. Highly recommend.
Saw here before when she was at a different clinic. She is very knowledgeable. Nothing but praise for her.
Dr. Wong is prompt, personable and professional. I'd recommend her!
Excellent I had no problems at all with the service.
She's great but don't ever expect to be seen on time. Wait is usually 5-35 minutes. But worth it.
I hadn't been to the Doctor in a while, so I was a little nervous about my visit. Dr. Wong was easy to talk to, she made the process quick and answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. I highly recommend; she is now my primary care provider.
This was my first time using Zocdoc and first time visiting Dr. Melissa Wong's office, so I was a bit nervous. However upon arrival all my worries went away. The office manager had all my information and my appointment started right on time. Mr. Wong was very friendly, extremely knowledgable, and made me feel at ease. She answered all of my questions confidently. It was a great appointment and I would recommend Dr. Wong to any of my friends!
Kind & efficient. Would definitely recommend!
She was great. Explained everything every step of the way
I was looking for a new doctor and Melissa seemed like a good fit. I was not disappointed. She took her time to review my records and made sure she had answered my questions. I need a doctor who has a little warmth, and Melissa delivered on that score as well.
Really professional and clearly explained the results to you.
She was very attentive and answered all of my questions with great care. Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to, which made this experience very enjoyable.
Basically no wait. Very professional; she took her time to examine me and offered a number of solutions. Very knowledgeable and thorough.
Great as always
Dr Wong listened patiently (no pun intended) while I rattled through a litany of ailments, and together we came up with a focused plan of action for my primary issue. I didn't feel rushed towards any old quick resolution ("take these pills & call me in a month") or like I was being pushed out the door (also happened before, with other doc's). It's only been one visit, but it seems to me that I'm on the right path -- for a change. (Now, I just hope she doesn't get swamped with new patients and has to change her style.)
Melissa was very helpful and answered my questions very thoroughly! I have found my primary care doc!
Saw her twice and will never return. She seems very inexperienced with her practice. All of her advice to me were just to go see a specialist and to see my previous doctors for answers. She is of no help at all.
She's the greatest physician! So kind, receptive, and thorough.
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.
she is doing excellent job, everything so far so good.
Dr. Wong was very pleasant to meet with and she answered all of my questions. The office looks to be primarily a pediatrics practice, but Dr. Wong does see adults as well.
She is the kindest person, very into explaining what procedures are for and what could be happening. She's easy to talk to and eases anxiety, and is interested in building a caring practice over the next few years as I believe they are a new practice.
Dr. Wong is fantastic! She was very kind and knowledgable. She recommended shots/vaccines but gave me the freedom to make my decisions! Will be back!
Melissa was great, she listed to all of my concerns and was caring yet efficient.
Melissa was wonderful, and super helpful. We are moving overseas and she was very knowledgeable on what I needed to do. Would revisit!
Dr. Wong was lovely! She was kind and accommodating, and has a very gentle and warm personality. I felt comfortable and would definitely recommend her.
I really liked her. Very well spoken, listens to everything you have to say. Did not rush me, gave me printed knowledge about some questions I asked. Highly recommend her.
Pleasant and Efficient - 10 out of 10.
She's the kindest person and is so attentive as a physician.
She's professional and polite. Highly recommend visiting Dr. Wong!
Melissa is an amazing doctor! She answered all of my questions and was very nice and professional. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a new doctor!
I'm so glad I saw Dr. Wong. Everything went smoothly and perfectly!
Melissa Wong was extremely kind, patient and knowledgeable. I've never felt so relaxed and comfortable oh and not rushed. Would highly recommend her.
Vee sweet and very informative!
Great doctor! Highly recommended!!
Extremely personable and knowledgeable. I was seen almost instantly, and everything was done quickly and professionally.
I have seen a lot of doctors in a lot of different cities over the years, including at the Beth Israel hospitals in both Boston and NYC, and Dr. Wong is right up there with the best of them. She is kind, takes time to listen, doesn't judge, and is thorough - you can't ask for more, really. Highly recommended.
I really liked Dr. Wong. It was my first time seeing her, and after some things with my insurance were worked out over the phone, the in person appointment went great. I was seen right away. She was kind and really took the time to explain things to me.
Dr. Wong was professional, answered all my questions and was very respectful.
She is a really kind and personable doctor. She is also very knowledgeable. The facility could be a little cleaner but the doctor herself is awesome.
Very friendly yet professional!
I'm so glad I found Dr. Wong. She's what I imagine an ideal doctor to be...compassionate, knowledgable, non-judgmental, and intelligent. Her suggestions are thoughtful and I feel confident that she sincerely has my best interests at heart. Highly recommended!
Amazing doctor! So glad I found you.
I found her diagnosis pretty convincing. She asked me a lot of questions to narrow down on the cause of the illness.
She is wonderful.
Dr. Wong was excellent! She answered all my questions, took the time to make sure I was comfortable (i.e. didn't rush through my exam) and offered helpful suggestions. Would absolutely recommend to a friend.
Melissa was great. She was sympathetic and answered all of my questions and addressed all of my concerns. I liked that she seemed to be practical, and she didn't recommend a lot of additional medication or appointments. Everything she said made sense.
After switching my insurance the idea of having a new dr made me a little nervous. Dr Wong was very warm and I felt completely comfortable. The office itself is not what I'm used to in terms of "feel" but the staff were very friendly and I was seen right away.
She was very personable and easy to talk to. I didn't feel rushed. She took her time to make sure she's answered my questions and concerns.
She made the entire process as seamless and simple as possible, I'll be recommending her to all my friends and colleagues as the best doctor in the Bay. She's knowledgable, responsive, and has wonderful bedside manner.
Great visit. Very knowledgeable.
Excellent doctor, makes you feel very comfortable.
She was wonderful!!
Gave good suggestions for my problem but the remedies the doctor gave were focused on treating the symptoms and not the cause.
She and her office people are all nice.
She's an excellent physician with an extraordinary bedside manner. I would highly recommend her!
She was awesome! I came in for a physical and some issues that had popped up in the past couple weeks, so I was very anxious and nervous. However, Dr. Wong was very caring and reassuring in her explanations and attempts to deduce causes to my symptoms. The appointment didn't feel rushed, nor did it feel like it went on way longer than it should've. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a doctor.
Really nice and very intelligent. She does a great job listening to my concerns and always has a clear answer.
She is very knowledgable and concise. Great bedside manner. Highly recommended!
Dr. Wong is informative. I appreciate that.
Although her facility was intimate, the office was clean and tidy, her receptionist was on the ball and my visit was short and sweet. I went in for a physical - and was sent a couple blocks away for my blood to be drawn. There were two-three pharmacies within the same block as well. Great overall!
Felt very at ease when speaking to Dr. Wong. Very easy appointment and was able to ask questions freely. Would definitely recommend.
She was really polite and professional. She listened to my concerns and provided feedback and explanations that were understandable. She made me feel really comfortable and I would go back again. The office building is a little older and located in the heart of Chinatown SF. It would be easy for people who work near the North Beach/Financial District.
She was very thorough and I felt very comfortable with her as my doctor
Dr. Wong was amazing! She took care of me. Very helpful in answering all my questions and concerns. Explain everything clearly and in details. She was wonderful. One of the best doctors I've ever encounter. Definitely going to recommend her to my friends and family in the area.
Dr. Wong is very professional and attended to all my needs. Thanks.
