Dr. Ngan is wonderful, he spent a great deal of time explaining what my surgery will entail. He answered most of my questions I had on my list before I could even ask. It was a very good appointment, very informative.

*Dr. Ngan is "ALWAYS" outstanding! He is so caring and understanding. He explains everything in a clear and precise way. He has done my last 2 ankle surgeries, which has improved my way of life!!!

Dr Ngan, was efficient, friendly and took time to answer my questions and concerns. He was able to fit me in for surgery quickly.

I drive from out of the area to be treated by Dr. Gnan. He has been a trusted practitioner for several years. I'd attempted to see a different VM Podiatrist and was dissatisfied with the experience and staff. I am more than willing to drive a distance to be treated by Dr. Gnan than go locally. In general the Federal Way VM clinic feels like an afterthought compared to Seattle, Issaquah etc... and significant investment needs to be made to bring up facilities, staffing and level of care to ensure that location is a viable South end option.

Doctor told me frankly that he does not deal with my condition.

Dr Ngan is an AMAZING provider
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Arrogant, condescending. Do not go to him if you are over 40.
