Dr Ngan has been excellent from the beginning and continues to be to this day. We have been working on getting my foot back to normal for going on 2 years and I have never felt rushed or that I was being treated impersonally. This has been totally excellent medical care experience.

At first Dr. Ngan seemed a little preoccupied or uninterested. As I've seen him several times in the past, this surprised me. He got better as the appointment progressed.

excellent doctor
  Overall Patient Rating - December 2019
He seemed to be in a hurry and impatient with how long it was taking me to process his information. I was having a lot of cramping in my left foot and he wasn't interested in dealing with why that might be happening.
  Overall Patient Rating - October 2019
I feel Dr. Ngan understands foot problems very well and is good at involving me in the decision for treatment for my problem.
  Overall Patient Rating - September 2019
Dr. Ngan is simply the best. I don't want to go to anyone other than him about any concerns I have regarding my feet. He does the proper amount of testing to find out exactly what's going on. He doesn't treat me like I'm just a complainer, and I appreciate that so much.
