Very understanding. This was my first time with a nail removal and She reassured me on how things were going. What to watch out for and if it happen, I was to call her and she would put in a referral for nail shaping - podiatry. Very EZ to talk with. I appreciate the Care planning .
I know what to expect, how to clean/bandage the area, and what to look for if something isn´t right. Both the Dr. and assistant were pleasant, knowledgeable, and efficient. I was completely comfortable with the procedure.
Dr. Chong was amazing. She was friendly and made time to take care of my issue right then without having to make a follow-up appointment.
Very professional, very efficient.
She was so caring, genuinely interested in my unique situation, then very optimistic about the treatment and outcome.
Dr. Chong was great and her MA was, too!
This is the third time I´ve seen Dr. Chong, who is extremely helpful. The front desk staff and MAs are professional.
Dr. Chong was kind enough to work me in that day (My appointment was at 3. I not sure but I think she made time and had a long day to do remove the nail and biopsy. I had been so worried for a while. I was so hopeful to get it done with out coming back in and I had a ride that day. She made it all work! I am so appreciative of her staying to do this for me!!!!
#8 . Seemed rushed.
dr Chong was kind and listened intently to my issues and was efficient in removing 2spots on my forehead
8. Very efficient, which some people might find not enough time. It was fine for me.
15 minute session covered the ´map´. I asked for close inspection of one area. Done; no problems.
I spoke first with a resident and then with Dr. Chong, they were both friendly, seemed knowledgeable, and showed care for me.
I was very impressed with Dr. Chong´s demeanor and knowledge. she explained things well and answered all my questions/concerns.
Dr. Chong has been great!!
Dr Chong put my mind at ease explaining that my bi-colored "lesion" was a normal keratosis, not mole. She also explained that insurers were no longer covering the charges to remove keratosis´; a very helpful piece of information to this limited income patient
I really enjoy the doctor, she has a good bedside manor & she explains everything well!
Was really impressed with Dr. Chong. Professional, explanatory, friendly - great mix of communication and sensitivity and getting the job done efficiently. Recommending to my wife to see Dr. Chong.
Dr. Chong was exceptional.
I have been seeing Dr. Chong once a month for about two years now. She is very knowledgeable and listen to all of my concerns. I really appreciate that she always answers my e-mails to her in a very timely manner. I really enjoy being one of her patients and I have a great deal of respect for her and all she does.
Since I had a long wait for an appointment, I ended up consulting a naturopath. I was discussing his recommendations with the VM physician, and we agreed that I don´t need other medications or treatment now as the psoriasis has gotten so much better. She gave me good advice on how to watch for psoriatic arthiritis.
Dr. Chong is detail oriented. Very friendly and exceptionally careful in her care and procedures for both medical and cosmetic dermatology.
Felt like she heard what I was saying. Explained things which made it easy for me to understand.
Explanations and choices (patient options) could be more thorough. But high compassion. High expertise. Very friendly. Very, very good doctor. Has my full confidence. I am just a very logical person who appreciates thorough explanations.
Dr. Hong was very nice and seemed fairly knowledgable. I´ve only seen her once so I really can"t speak to confidence or recommendation yet.
she was very rushed and didn´t engage in conversation with me other than just getting the procedure done.
Dr. Chong was very helpful to my understanding of the condition on my shin.
Excellent care. Hope to retain this doctor as my dermatologist.
I would recommend Dr. Traci Chong to anyone close to me. I had read her reviews online before making my appointment & I was not disappointed. She´s very good & takes time to explain or answer any questions one may have. definitely recommend her!
Very good communicator and a good person
Felt extremely rushed. Left Virginia Mason without confidence in results or peace of mind due to speed of examination.
Dr. Chong was professional and pleasant, but our time was quite short because of the delay in the start of my appointment and my need to get on my way so I could make my flight. She made some additional recommendations to supplement some things that I was already doing to address some of my issues, but did not really get into follow-up protocols or timelines regarding the recommended treatments, other than to say that I could contact her through the patient portal.
I recommended this care provider to my husband. She was friendly and courtesy. She even read my chart and called me by my preferred name written in my records! Totally impressed me!
Very happy with the treatment from the care provider
Dr. Tracy Chong is awesome. She is very caring and very knowledgeable. I trust her advice very much
Dr. Chong has a great bedside manner, was very knowledgeable and did not rush through the appointment.
1st visit to provider - no new/unusual issues - visit went well - "getting acquainted but thorough!
I am SO GLAD I got a Survey - Tracie was SPECTACULAR - communicated to me right at my level of understanding - not too high - not too low. Showed care and concern for me. From a patient point of view an absolute Gem!
Dr. Chong was very kind and made me feel very comfortable
Dr. Chong listened to my concerns, validated my feelings and experience. She took time to look thoroughly and took time to solve the problem. She was kind and understanding!
Dr. Chong is a caring and very professional provider with a great manner, knowledgeable, helpful and engaged. Would highly recommend.
I´m not sure if this will be covered on the next page, but I received a follow-up call telling me that the two tissue samples had been biopsied and showed no sign of cancer. I very much appreciated the call and the information provided.
Dr. Chong showed her concern. I liked her VERY much.
Very timely response to messages I sent over my Virginia Mason web account. I really appreciate that service as I live in Eastern Washington.
It was my first visit with Dr. Chong, and I was very impressed with both her knowledge and her communication.
The appointment went smoothly. The Doctor was patient and gave answers to all the questions.
Dr. Chong is amazing. She is so caring, and clearly explains everything that is going on. She answers my stupid questions with ease, and never makes me feel like they are stupid!
Quick and to the point. Some questions that I might have asked but overlooked
Dr. Chong was clear, informative, and personable. Some of these points don´t apply.
all was good
Dr Chong was awesome! Caring and professional
The purpose of my apppointment was a regular scheduled followup complete body examination for any possible dermatology issues. After the long delay Dr Chong spent a maximum of 4 to 5 minutes doing this "complete body checkup". It felt so cursory that I was too surprised to register a comment.
Dr. Chong was great!
I liked her very much and would use her again - I did not like the previous dermatologist I saw, did not find her competent and am very pleased with Dr. Chong.
I didn´t feel much compassion from the doctor. I felt like I was going through a drive-thru doctor appointment. She seemed emotionless and not concerned about my overall wellbeing, which may have been contributing to my skin issues. I usually have good experiences with doctors at Virginia Mason. I don´t know if she was having a bad day or what was going on with her, but it was not a great experience.
Dr Chong is very good and very caring
Doctor was great in reviewing my situation and explaining my condition
#8. Provider couldn´t wait to get me out of office to get the next person in.
Came in for issue w/nail fungus & some questions re: skin issues. Ended up getting 2 biopsies (1-positive) & pre-cancerous areas burned.
From the moment she entered, I was impressed with her professional conduct and courtesy. She introduced herself, washed her hands and, without hesitation, offered her hand to shake mine. She questioned me for my opinion of the skin issues I had. She addressed all my issues and concerns and did not discount my opinions. She identified several areas of my skin requiring treatment then treated those areas. Afterward, she provided follow-up information for treatment of the wounds. She had a pleasant, low-key manner, which I found comforting. I will consider Ms. Chong to be my dermatologist in the future and look forward to seeing her in a year or sooner if necessary.
Knowledgeable. Friendly. Could tell she was new, with some people training to make her comfortable, she will be great.
Best dermatologist I´ve ever been to, made me feel like I was on a right track to treatment and I am!
Ms. Chong was a great help. Explained more than my surgeon and made a lot of sense!
