Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

Dr. Wong actually called me at home on a Friday night - about 6 hours after my ultrasound - to let me know everything was fine. No cancer!

My primary care provides is very thorough, ensures his patients are well and understand the treatment before they are discharged. He follows up with test results, gives medical advice, and will tell if he prefers you come back for an additional check up. Dr. Wong is very caring of his patients. I would definitely recommend my friends.

I had to wait over 1.5 hours after my scheduled appointment time to meet with Dr. Wong in a cold waiting room, which did not make me feel much better. Once I met with Dr. Wong, however, I received good care.

The axminster health group is a nightmare for referrals, not from my PCP but from the specialists. Availability and limited options are terrible.

dealing with the office staff is like dealing with the DMV. Impersonal, they are too busy. I like Dr. Wong, but think the office is too big, too much like an assembly line [...]

Dr. Wong is a wonderful doctor, he listens and seems genuinely interested in helping me find solutions to my medical issues. I greatly appreciate having such a knowledgable, caring, kind, and compassionate doctor. It is a comfort to know that he will be there when I am not feeling my best.

I've had horrible experience with getting referrals approved. THey approve for first visit and Drs office schedules for follow up either a couple weeks to a month out and I get turned away because I wasn't approved for a follow up apt. If a Drs office is continuing treatment then they should approve enough apts for the patient, or atleast tell the patient there will need another approval for visit. and give patient advice as to how to move forward. I also needed an MRI for both knees and hey scheduled one knee at one location and the other at a different location. My referrals were also sent home but not posting at the Drs office so was very hard for me to make an appointment.

Dr. Wong was very patient oriented, charming and pleasant to deal with. He showed a high concern for my medical issues and indicated to me that he wanted to provide me with the very best professional medical attention that he could.

He did not have access to my records, epic was impaired. He could be warmer in his bedside manner, and should talk slower.

dr was knowledgable with facts from books but not from real life. such as knowing from experience. sent me for 1 test. and rescheduled me for 2 wks. test negative leaving me back to square one and still in pain thats getting worse. without seeing me again after blood clot ruled out he just guessed it was just and injury w time would heal. and set me up w phydical therapy. no xray. what if it has a small fracrure. i have osteoporosis and had several fractures elsewhere. thats just one ideaof whats wrong. didnt ask more questions to figure out what was wrong.

I do not know if it is faster, but the new process of standing in line before getting to the intake desk seems less professional environment. It felt like I was at the DMV or similar place

Dr. Wong was efficient but personable. He demonstrated appropriate concern and was very thorough in reviewing my records. He was professional and kind in making suggestions to improve my health through lifestyle changes and did not skirt the issue that I need to drop some weight, and as a nurse, I appreciate that as it's so important to be able to have those conversations with patients. He could not have done a better job.

Dr. Wong was great. He has been my son's provider and my son gave me good feedback about him. My regular provider is Dr. [...], and when I originally called to scheduled my [...] appt, the receptionist mistakenly scheduled me for Dr. Lewis Wong. I was very pleasantly pleased to discuss my health care with Dr. Lewis Wong and will continue to schedule appointments with him.

My one-on-one visit with Dr.Wong was great. I did not appreciate his email response to my concern regarding the X-ray report. There was no willingness or urgency from his part to follow up with the radiologist. I sent two emails via My Chart, and did not get a response on my second email. I also have questions regarding the blood work result showing low glucose yet I am within the range [...]. I have to wait until I see Dr. [...]

my first time coming in I had a 2:45pm appt. and was told to show up 20 min early which I did so I waited till 3:40 before I was seen by the doctor ! totally unacceptable! I felt like I was waiting in a clinic in Tijauna Mexico , […]! I had very important engagements I needed to attend that I was not able to. I'm so angry that if it wasn't to much trouble I would go somewhere else and never come back , but unfortunately I need medical attention right away !! Doctor was very professional but front desk staff needs to be replaced or undergo serious retraining!!!

This 'Doctor' was almost insulting to my condition and needs. Then he literally slammed the door and walked out to see another patient and refused to return and help me. This is the third bad Doctor I've seen at this location and will not be returning again and I will let others know about this. [...]

Dr Wong spent more time with than any other doctor in the last 20 years. He was very thorough in discussing all my health issues.
100

04/10/2016
I would recommend Dr. Lewis Wong because he seems to genuinely care about patients and how they feel, where as other providers in the same office don't take the time to listen to what is wrong, or find out the root of the problem. While another provider just brushed off any medical issues or checking my blood work because I was "too young for that" he took the time to listen and run blood work. Thanks!
