    Dr. Don Ng's patient care as my PCP over many years has been exemplary. His character and skill have carried me through some dark times!

    Dr. Donald Ng is one that I can say sets a standard for how care is and should be provided. Caring thoughtful with the right amount of rigor in his evaluation and comprehensive on his work and follow up. Many other providers seems to be rushed as if profitability drivers have set standards of care where there appears to be superficial interest in the patient. Many can learn from Dr. Ng and that both excellent care and business objectives can be achieved.

    Dr. Ng as usual was very caring and well informed on all health topic. He listens well; during this visit I accomplished a number of things that were relatively new. These included confirmation of hernia ( now I have a referral to general surgery) increased dosage of blood pressure medication referral for colonoscopy and a very informative discussion on psa test.
