SHC Patient, Oct 2017

dr Weng was very straightforward and very helpful

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

I felt very well cared for by Dr Weng and was very glad I came in to the clinic.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

Dr Weng talked more about her daughter attending UOP than seeing to my problem. For the duration of my visit, she talked to me about my issue maybe 5 minutes. She asked me, "what do you want to do with your issue?" I was thinking, what? I came here to get expert suggestions. If I knew, I would of done it myself. Truly disappointing. I hope to never see her. She wasn't very helpful.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017
