“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“

    Dr Wong has been my Gasteroenterologist for over 9 years and has done a number of procedures for me. He is excellent, thorough in his work and takes the time to explain the results and answers all of the questions my wife has, patiently and willingly. I highly recommend him for both his professionalism and his manner with patients.

    I have been under Dr Wong for almost a year now with a severe liver problem. During this time I have visited him on many occasions for consultations and medical procedures. I always find him extremely helpful, friendly and very easy to talk to. I would not hasten to recommend him whole-heartedly to anyone needing a doctor specialising in liver and gastro problems. He is most definitely 'the man to see'

    Dr. Wong is very friendly and modest with his patients and staff alike. I heard a nurse say she likes Dr. Wong and I can understand why. He's always encouraging those working with him to think outside the box and find solutions. As a patient, he always gives me more than enough time to hear me and ask questions. He also always encourages me when my rare condition seems endless and frustrating at times, both by his compassion and his passion to find solutions. I know I'm in good hands with Dr. Wong

    I regularly refer patients to Voi Shim Wong. He has excellent clinical skills and is particularly good at dealing with diagnosis of abdominal pain which is often complex. I would highly recommend him to any patient.
