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.

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.

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.

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!

I hope that I never have to make such a referral. DR. Dong has always made sure that both my wife and I understand where I'am at in my treatments. Except for the first meeting, we locked horns then, but she has been great ever since.

I went to the dr. and she saw me before I get cancer treatment it cost so and she only spent 5-10 minutes with me. I got all of my questions answered but so is a lot to pay, on top of the treatment, I am on social security and it just seems like a lot.

Doctor requested nurse to schedule lab and order Rx. Nurse did not follow up with me, so I had to contact Dr for next steps. Dr is very responsive. At Salmon Creek Apothecary, instructions for Rx needed clarification from provider's office. I had to text provider directly to get pharmacy clarification - which happened immediately, but I'm not sure why the clarification wasn't handled without my intervention.

After transitioning from one Blood Doctor to Another... First mistake by previous blood doctor stating, I had COVID, Couldn't come for my appointment. I DID NOT have Covid. Change in Doctors, set an appointment months in advance for the beginning of March, week or so prior I received a call from the Office (Man), telling me I had to change my appointment. The next available appointment was almost 2 months out. He was rude, bully trying to MAKE me give up my appointment for "Cancer Patients". I don't know what happened in the office but it was not my responsibility to make room for more patients. I was not feeling well also and had no answers... Doctor was great, that phone call was more than RUDE!

Dr. Mei Dong was extremely attentive and made clear what was happening with my situation. I left her office upbeat and encouraged with how to handle it. However, I don't think she had viewed my MRI or CT scans (maybe didn't have them?) because her drawing/description didn't fully match the situation. In other words, the cancer of my kidney was considerably larger than what she drew on the board. Had she known that, I feel she would or should have drawn a more accurate diagram. She left me feeling very optomistic, and I still am even after seeing the Uroligist the following day and finding out the whole kidney needs to be taken out verus simple removal of the cancerous area. I am still very pleased with Dr. Dong. Thank you.

Dr. Dong was maybe the worst doctor I've ever seen. She was late to the appointment, even though when I was taken into the room, her nurse said she was ready. She then proceeded to make me feel like I was worried about nothing, and ignored questions about concerns I was having. She was dismissive, rushed, and still has not called to explain my test results, even though I've seen them in mychart. I felt completely invalidated and left in tears. I will not be back to this provider.
