Dr.Thong is a excellent doctor but when my husband and a patient of Dr.Thong also died suddenly I could not get a appointment to see him. I called and called and it was almost two months before I could see him. During that same time I had a medical problem and couldn’t see him either. I had to go to the weekend clinic. The people there from check in to the lady doctor was wonderful and caring. The docotor was right about what my problem was and gave me two prescriptions that cleared the problem up._x000D_ Dr.Thong is so well liked and doesn’t short change his patients when seeing them. He knew there was something going on with my husband other doctors failed to look for when Dr.Thong found the problem it was too late. He passed away a few months later. SouthCoast Health should be proud of Dr.Thong he is the doctor of the people no matter who you are. _x000D_ I don’t know how you can help cut down the wait time unless he had a PA to help. He deserves five Stars._x000D_
