Dr Dong is highly educated. She has a lot of knowledge. She acted as if we couldn't possibly understand anything about a DVT. She talked down to us. It was an unpleasant experience.

The provider had not looked at my medical record and had no idea how complex my medical history is. She did not take into account my medical history. Even after I told her about my medical history she did not look at my records. She did no physical exam. When I told her I wanted tests beyond a CBC she asked me "what tests?" as if it was my responsibility to know what else could be done. She disregarded my concerns and my desire for more information even when I was in tears. She ended the appointment by initiating a fist bump. This was inappropriate for three reasons: 1. We are in a pandemic and 2. She is in a position of power and I felt obligated to respond even though I was highly uncomfortable 3. I feel that she did this in order to make her feel better about the emotional state I was in. She did not make sure I was calm before I left the office. I have had many interactions with medical professionals since I was child and this was by far one of the worst interactions I have ever had. I am never going back there and I will be sure to let friends and family know that they should not be seen at this clinic if they can in any way avoid it. My care was deplorable.

Good experience but room for improvement in regards to assisting patients in wheelchairs navigate doors, even if they have someone pushing them as it is still difficult at times. We had some help entering but not exiting. As well I do not think the drop-off areas of the clinic should be used by the medical delivery cars. All the ones I have seen are not driven by disabled people that might need to park close, but rather able bodied people who are only trying to shave a few minutes off their delivery. They create roadblocks and some chaos for those who are trying to actually drop-off or pick-up patients. They can park in a regular parking spot or perhaps be given their own little parking spot area. The amount of time they think they are saving is small, and should not take precedence over disabled/crippled patients with appointments. As well they have their health and two good legs to walk with.

Dr. Dong completely understood my frustration about having to dig out insurance cards every time I visit the Legacy Lab for a blood draw. I know the cards are in the Legacy Health computer because I do not have to show them to see a Doctor. She agreed to have me visit The Vancouver Clinic for blood draws and reports, but said it would interrupt the chain of my blood history which would make her job a bit more difficult. After due consideration, I agreed to have Legacy Labs do my blood analysis even though I will make my blood boil ever two weeks when I go to bet a blood draw so she can see if the meds are working.

My family and I feel that Dr. Dong is an excellent doctor. She is always very proffessional and caring. She's been with us for the last two years and has been a major part of our strength. She and her team are an outstanding asset to the clinic. We're always telling people how awesome it's been working with her.

I have had a very good experiences with this provider and her team, They understand their field of expertise, and are helpful when I ask a question. I have appointments 3 times a week every other week and Dr Dong and her team have been wonderful...they help me get over the fear I might have as well as look into any questions I might have, and I am satisfied. As with anything that is serious, every morning I wake up, knowing it, I question and have hope, sometimes I have to put myself in their shoes because we are all feeling the strain of the pandemic, and Dr Dong and her team have the same strain...and they have it much more so because they not only deal with me with my serious condition, they mulitpule patients

Dr. Dong clearly read my medical history and was aware of issues not of specific interest for this visit. She got down to business and articulated the frame into which my issue rested and what needed to be done in order to obtain reliable information. She immediately made an appt for blood work which was accomplished right after our session. At the end of the appt we talked a bit about some joint non-medical experiences and I am looking forward to continuing with her.

Dr. Dong was kind and attentive. Although she was not the right specialty for my specific concern, she explained everything thoroughly, and put my mind at ease. Dr. Dong was able to refer me to the right specialist for my needs. The front desk Receptionist was incredibly kind and welcoming as well as the Medical Assistant. thank you

Dr. Dong is an excellent doctor and communicator. She is treating me for a potential blood/bone marrow issue, so some questions/answers may not be totally relevant. Her expertise, compassion and care are excellent. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Dong treating me and guiding my healthcare investigative and treatment processes. Thank you for the opportunity to make my comments and feelings known.

as always with vancouver clinic or legacy, it seems my results of tests etc are a secret to me and never explained in depth. it is the most annoying thing about this provider. so much so it could make me choose another provider.

Lab work, even though on the 1st floor and clinic on 3rd floor had a major problem getting from A to B. The lab was excellent keeping us informed that they had a major problem with the computer. They finally had to get a hold of the person in charge of the lab at home, and they were able to fix it from their home. The lab people would come out to keep us informed of the progress or lack thereof during the probably hour that we were waiting, and once they got the paperwork, the tests were performed quickly and professionally. There should be a way around the computer when things like this happen, as I'm sure it must happen now and again.
