Good.

10/28/2015

Ok.

10/27/2015

As said earlier, Dr. Ang and the entire staff excellent.

10/27/2015

I think *Dr. Ang is an excellent doctor that takes the time to help you understand your conditions esp when I don't always agree.

10/2/2015

As wonderful as he is, I would like for him to slow down a little. More like a conversation than quick meeting. The time and information was great, but I would have liked a little more time to process and respond -more dialogue.

8/4/2015

I have 4 college degrees and appreciated *Dr. Ang explaining things in a way that was not too simplified. His level of explanation was just right!
