Nice dr.

We were extremely impressed with Dr. Ang's vitality, knowledge, attention to the problem, thoroughness etc. He is probably the best physician I have seen & I am 67. Fantastic job!!

8/12/2014

My one comment is that the doctor suggested that my condition might be chronic and have no cure. When he asked me if I had "coping" skills to deal with that eventuality (like things that make me happy--friends, hobbies, etc.) I said yes I had all those but that I had never seriously considered that I might not get better ever. This was kind of devastating to me and I told him if that was the case I might need a support group or some other help. But he never offered any help there. This stumps me because he said he had a number of chronic patients--so shouldn't he have known to tell me some resource besides "try meditating" ??? (I don't mind that he suggested that--it's a perfectly good idea but it didn't address my desire for outside support.) I would like more follow-up care from the doctors I've seen at Wake Forest because I feel a bit left in the lurch with a chronic condition that is, essentially, debilitating to me.

7/8/2014
