Dr. Andrew Wang

A Bit Distressing

Updating, this review concerns the performance of Dr. Andrew Wang personally.

My initial experience was that he would exit the interview abruptly, without any indication or explanation. A bit distressing.

On subsequent meetings I learned that he spends 20 minutes with a patient for a 30 minute appointment.

The first 10 minutes are spent having your blood pressure measured by a nurse and waiting.

For his interview during the next 20 minutes he focuses his attention on the screen of his laptop and is not happy for interruptions that require him to look at and engage with the patient.

If he accepts a 5 minute interruption, you get a total of 15 minutes for a 30 minute appointment.

On medical records, he produced an excellent (or better) record for our first appointment.

  1. Tony Jenkins' Review Is Accurate

    This isn’t a doctor who seeks to provide health care as his main objective nor is this a doctor who understands how to be objective.

    Dr. Wang was my doctor for all of 2021 thus far, though his office refused to see me time and again. What happened happened because he made sure not to see me at any time I tried to make an appointment. My review is as follows:

    In March, I was bleeding from a UTI and called Dr. Wang, my Anthem Medi-Blue Select PCP to see him immediately. The officious receptionist at the office told me I am not Dr. Wang’s patient and he is not accepting new patients: go to emergency if you want immediate care. I telephoned the Asian American Medical Group (AAMG) to complain that St. Francis Medical Group’s Dr. Wang is “apparently” not my PCP even though my insurance card from Anthem says he is my PCP. The AAMG rep talked with Dr. Wang by telephone, confirming with her and for me that he was indeed my PCP. The rep from AAMG said St. Francis Medical Group made a mistake in refusing me permission to see my primary care doctor.

    I did not need to contact Dr. Wang again until recently when I learned my surgery required I get some pre-op lab work done beforehand. I telephoned Dr. Wang at his office and again the receptionist told me that no registration exists for me as a patient, telling me as well that it was impossible for me to see an alternative doctor at this private clinic since my current medical insurance card does not have on it the name of the alternative doctor. I again telephoned AAMG and again AAMG insisted Dr. Wang was indeed my doctor. However, AAMG mentioned that Dr. Wang had no available appointments till late September and my scheduled surgery date precluded him from seeing me. AAMG thus arranged for me to see a P.A. by the name of Emily Fung for the following day.

    Hours before my appointment, and on the same day of my appointment, I tried to reach Emily Fung, P.A. by telephone to find out if I “had to” wear a mask and whether she honored any religious exemptions or medical exemptions from mask wearing. I telephoned at 10:30 a.m. and again at 2:10 p.m., forty minutes before my appointment. On each call, an answering service merely answered and after leaving my message that I wanted a callback before my appointment, I never once received a callback.

    When I arrived at 2:45 p.m. for my appointment, an office manager, wearing one of those toxic blue masks so popular these days in SF, opened the door and told me she needed to take my temperature. I let her take my temperature but then she told me I “had to” wear a mask. I showed her my religious exemption badge, which states, “Refusal of service may place you at risk for being prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. There is no evidence that I am a direct threat to the health and safety of others,” etc. The office manager said, “Sue me! You’re rude and I want you out of this office.” When I agreed, under duress, to wear a mask, she said, “You must leave. You will not be seeing Dr. Fung.” I insisted I was not leaving until I had a chance to see Dr. Fung. It was my medical right to receive service.

    The office manager left the empty waiting room in which I sat reading a book of poetry meanwhile and she spoke with Emily Fung, P.A. down the hallway. could hear their conversation. Ms. Fung agreed with the manager to refuse me medical service, and the two of them telephoned private security guards to take me out of the otherwise empty waiting room. I was not a threat or danger to anyone. If masks works and if Dr. Fung believed masks protect you, then I was certainly no danger to her or to the manager, both of whom were wearing identical masks.

    I placed a formal grievance with my Anthem Medi-Blue Select against Emily Fong, P.A. The customer service at Anthem tried to seek redress with St. Francis Medical Group and/or Emily Fung, P.A., and she did so twice by telephone. On each attempt, whoever answered the phone hung up immediately after picking up, allowing no attempt at communication to resolve the conflict at all.

    The behavior by the answering service, by St. Francis Medical Group, by the absenteeism and hypocrisy of Dr. Wang, and by the cowardly, egregiously indifferent behavior of Emily Fong, P.A., and the rude and indifferent office manager, collectively, makes this one private medical clinic and group of practitioners that prospective patients interested in good quality of care and in ethical behavior want to avoid.

    To add insult to injury, Emily Wong, P.A. is under the aegis of Brown & Tolland, not Asian American Medical Group, so she knew before I ever entered the office that she wasn’t going to see me because her contract is to see patients who are members of the Brown & Tolland Medical Group, not the Asian American Medical Group that I belonged to. In other words, St. Francisco Medical Group openly and deliberately deceived me, giving me reason to believe I was going to finally receive the pre-op lab necessary for me to have my surgery when Ms. Fong knew she could and would not deliver any medical service to me.

    The very next day, after my horrendous visit in Dr. Wang’s office, Dr. Andrew Wang himself sent me an angry and fatuous letter “firing” me as his patient, a patient whom he never saw even once in all his days of practicing medicine, claiming that I had been “loud” and had threatened his office with a lawsuit. He was not a witness to any of the events he reported in his letter, and he didn’t bother to question whether the report about me he was given was gossip or projections from an emotionally unbalanced woman. His letter made exaggerated and false claims against me, a deed that is pretty shameful since, as I say, wasn’t there to know what the facts were.

    In conclusion, Dr. Wang is a man who should know the science about masks, that they don’t protect against viruses but do themselves cause disease; a man who, if he followed the science, should know that CV19 and its variants are 99.9% survivable, and who could be in the forefront of resistance against superstition; here is a man who, instead, behaves like a craven authoritarian who has literally no concern for the patient’s health and would rather the patient die without medical care than “disobey” his office’s policies regarding an ineffective piece of cloth tied over one’s face. He was not present to the events I described above and yet he’ll defend his office manager’s lies without once questioning their veracity.

    This isn’t a doctor who seeks to provide health care as his main objective nor is this a doctor who understands how to be objective.

  2. He also seems more concerned about your health then most doctors I have had.

    I have been a patint or Dr. Wang for about 2 years now and he is the best doctor I have had to this point. He is very friendly and very informative. He also seems more concerned about your health then most doctors I have had.

    It is true that they try to get you out of there in 15 minutes for the next patient but that does not stop Dr. Wang to try and find out what is bothering you.

  3. Bad Service

    The best primary care physician I have ever had. At age 70 I have had numerous health issues in the last few years and Dr. Wang has treated me both in and out of hospital and was very understanding; referring me to the proper specialists when necessary and doing a great job in managing my pain.

    I have stenosis of the spine, type 2 diabetes and C.O.P.D..Practically all of my ailments are either from my own stupidity like back pain due to motorcycle accident at age 58 or exacerbated due to smoking for 50 plus years and diabetes from a lifelong addiction to sugar and anything else that is detrimental to my health.

    Even though I am the world’s worst patient, Dr Wang has treated me with good humor and no superfluous lectures. All in all I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a good and caring family doctor.

  4. Scammer

    I found this doctor to be inhumane, authoritarian, cold and disloyal.
