My cancer Dr is amazing and all her staff nurses are too... Ty for always being there

  Apr 19, 2023
Dr.Dong's explanation of Mom's cancer was excellent. We agree with her plan of treatment. She speaks loud enough for Mom to hear and seems to really listen to our concerns. It's a great comfort to have my Mom in Dr. Dong's care.

1st time visit and doctor is working on figuring what the health problem is.

  Apr 12, 2023
This was a first visit and I have absolute confidence in the care she has been asked to provide. Her nurse was also extremely helpful.

  Apr 12, 2023
I always feel Dr.Dong listens to me and helps me I feel comfortable with her.

  Apr 5, 2023
Dr Dong is never interested in any pain I have. It doesn't seem like she even looks at my test results. She doesnt remember she gave me a prescription and she has terrible manners. On the treatment side some of the nurses are terrible at putting an IV in. They miss and it's so painful. They don't use a numbing agent like they do at peace health. The nurse at the start talked me out of getting the IV port and now I regret it.

  Mar 28, 2023
Very competent doctor tho' she seemed rushed.

  Mar 23, 2023
I was stage 4 metastatic renal carcinoma and this provider saved my life I am cancer free and on my way to bring cured

  Mar 23, 2023
For the first time, I had to wait more than 30 minutes despite the fact I arrived a little early

  Mar 21, 2023
Dr. Dong showed concerned and put us in touch with support groups and other help to navigate cancer.

  Mar 16, 2023
Getting help getting important, vital meds to patient. Refresh docs knowledge of patient before seeing the patient. Shouldnt have to refresh the doctors records for them. Doctor should b in charge. Cancer patients shouldn't deal with that.

  Mar 8, 2023
Dr. Dong went over different medication to take since the first one that was prescribed was so expensive that we couldn't afford it. She was very very helpful and we appreciate her so much for her time with me.

  Mar 8, 2023
Dr. Dong is an excellent Oncologist. She explains things clearly and is very caring. She's timely but I never feel rushed. She gets a 10+ from me!

  Mar 3, 2023
Dr. Dong recommended ADT for my prostate cancer, but did not explain the side effects. A search of the Internet listed several.

  Feb 28, 2023
I was very impressed w/the professionalism. I was so appreciative of the follow-up regarding my lab results and the need for further treatment.

  Feb 1, 2023
Dr. Dong is my chemo infusion provider - I go to the clinic every week as scheduled - The day before each visit I have a blood draw. Dr. Dong and the entire staff have been great. All my records are on My Health.

In the year I have worked with Dr. Dong she has always been very caring and helpful with all my questions especially in a confusing time.

  Jan 16, 2023
Dr. Dong has been treating me for MDS since September 1920. I trust my life because I know what will happen to me if her treatments do not keep my hemoglobin level at a satisfactory level. She explained to me why she was changing medicine in such a way I totally understood what she was hoping to accomplish.I also want to compliment the Front Desk staff and the nursing staff In the treatment room.I can truthfully say just love "The Legacy Cancer Treatment in Vancouver". They are the only friends I have.

  Jan 6, 2023
Dr. Dong is smart, to-the-point and coherent. I enjoyed my visit with her and came away with good information and felt I was treated with respect, that she listened to me and that she had my best interests in mind.

  Dec 21, 2022
Dr. Dong is kind, knowledgeable, and attentive. My particular diagnosis is uncommon; thus, there are few resources and pathways offered as tools or information for support and guidance on my treatment and response journey. Neither good nor bad, it is regrettable.

  Dec 21, 2022
Taking care of my elderly parents for decades; I have been trained to check after all Providers and their support staff. Dr. Dong is a GREAT Scientist; but she is no good if her support staff do not follow her orders; nor question her when I question them (via MyChart). A few incidents so far; and expect more to follow. Too many patients; too little time!

  Dec 19, 2022
Provider was on time and very professional. Answered all my questions and went out of her way to schedule lab work for follow up.

Dr. Mei Dong has shown nothing but compassion and supreme subject matter knowledge. I'm literally trusting her with my life for a second time.

  Sep 27, 2022
Best oncologist I have had.

  Sep 26, 2022
No medical assistant available so our doctor had to do everything. Needed 3 days of chemo. They forgot to schedule day 2 or 3. Messed up on ordering bloodwork for a Scans. Can never speak to anyone, always Have to leave a message. Odds are you won't hear back. Like our provider but staff must not be paid enough because the turnover is crazy. Feel like we have to be on top of everything. Cannot rely on staff to do their job. So disappointed when you are going through cancer.

  Sep 26, 2022
Dr Dong was excellent in explaining my problem and I understood what my problem was.

  Sep 22, 2022
Dr Dong always happy and caring

  Sep 15, 2022

I have very good experiences when Go to the clinic and see my doctor

  Aug 9, 2022
Time lapse between referral to Dr. Dong and actual office visit too long in our opinion due to recent diagnosis. The wait was very worrisome.

  Aug 8, 2022
Dr. Dong is an awesome Oncologist. She listens, she communicates well, and she is up to date on the latest information regarding my cancer. She is a caring physician.

  Aug 8, 2022
Excellent Doctor Dong Is compassionate, smart, thoughtful! I feel luck to have her as a Doctor.

  Aug 4, 2022
Was told that "she was not obligated to show me my PET scan",this made me very frustrated and helpless. As a patient I believe that it is my right to know, also that the patient was the providers obligation to explain every detail weather it was on paper or to see the images on film. I believe I may need another Oncologist who will be as concerned with my mental health as with my cancer's, yes I have two different kinds going on, and I realize that priority must be given to the worst of two. But, let not forget to at least address the second cancer status. I am sorry that my visit with Dr. Dong was not a pleasant one.

  Aug 3, 2022
Have all been very good

  Aug 3, 2022
I found Dr. Mei Dong to be friendly, kind, and very knowledgeable. She wrote all the important points on the board and explained everything. She has the appropriate sense of urgency with my situation, which I find comforting. I would recommend her without reservation. Mike at the front desk staff was very kind, considerate and he and his co-workers quietly shared a laugh which shows they can deal with the stress of dealing with patients who may be quite ill.

  Aug 2, 2022
Dr. Dong is one of the few practitioners who have taken the time to listen to me and understand the complexity of my condition. To be seen, heard, and supported by a doctor is sadly a rarity these days. Dr. Dong provided all of that and more, leaving me feeling so grateful for being in her care.

  Jul 26, 2022
My appointment was 11:30am. When I arrived there was no receptionist at the front station until after 11:30. It took another 5-7 minutes for person to log in to their computer to check me in. If my appointment was for 11:30 someone should have been at the front desk to check me in. Instead I was told the front desk person was at lunch and would be back shortly!

  Jul 19, 2022
Dr. Dong is an excellent doctor. So glad th have her as my Oncologist.

  Jul 14, 2022
Dr. Dong is a shining star in your care team. Thorough, kind, conscientious, caring, empathetic. What a fantastic doctor for this position within your system.I wish even half of the other doctors were anywhere near as good as she is. Don't dare let her go!

  Jul 13, 2022
Very good experience

I have MDS which is a condition I know nothing about. Dr. Dong has been treating it for 22 months and it is getting worse. She has never fully explained to me what my future will be.
