    I had a fantastic experience with Dr Wong in June-August 2021. We first met when I was an inpatient at the Wellington, he diagnosed me accurately and prescribed antibiotics that worked effectively. I then had three follow up appts with him as an outpatient at the Platinum Medical Centre in July and August 2021. Every time his explanation was excellent and I agreed with him about treatment.

    When we met Doctor Wong at St John’s and St Elizabeth’s hospital, it was obvious that God himself had put us in connection with him. He is an extremely knowledgeable consultant. His calm and reassuring demeanour is second to none which is a blessing when you are going through a medical storm in your life. I would recommend Doctor Wong unreservedly if you have any gastro problems such as bowel cancer, his efficiency, professionalism and abundant knowledge in this field is just what you need in moments like this. Thank you Doctor Wong, you are an incredibly humble man and you will never fully understand how appreciative we are of you. May the Lord continue to bless you and other patients you come into contact with

    It gives me immense pleasure in providing a professional recommendation for Dr Voi Shim Wong, Consultant Gastroenterologist and a great colleague. He has looked after several of my patients, which I referred to him for Upper / Lower GI endoscopy (Gastroscopy / Colonoscopy). I received nothing short of a great feedback from all my patients re Dr Wong's professionalism, clinical skills and care that they received under his care. He works very hard and always remains available for his patients and colleagues who rely on his clinical acumen and expertise in managing patients with all types of gastroenterological diseases I strongly recommend him for all GI problems particularly those that warrant endoscopic intervention.
