  • “Dr. Wang explained the results of my X-ray and MRI. He answered my questions and provided a plan of treatment. He took time with me, so when I left there, I felt confident in his treatment of my present condition. My former doctor had retired, so there was a bit of uncertainty going there, but I was very satisfied with Dr. Wang.”
