He is an excellent doctor he knows his job very well _____ hears you out before talking back.

Dr Gong always spends a lot of time with me. He communicates the results of blood tests and other tests very quickly.

Reviewed on July 3, 2019 7:00 PM

When Dr. Gong orders tests, I appreciate that he personally calls regarding the results, rather than another staff member.

I only made an appointment for a general check up/physical. I am having a few issues with my right arm and asked about that, but the Provider made it clear that he would have to "charge" me additional if he had to talk about that with me. I have not seen a doctor in a long time for anything, but I wasn't expecting the tone in which this comment was made (not rude or abrupt but not welcoming). I was nervous and happy to finally see a Provider, but I didn't feel comfortable with that comment. I would have preferred, if he would have said, "let's set up a time so we can check that", instead he made it clear that it would be an additional charge - which would have not been an issue for me since my insurance would have covered.

A student followed Dr. Gong that day. Prior to the entrance of the student into my room, the nurse told me "Dr. Gong has a student with him today. You don't have an issue with that, right?" Immediately, I felt pressured to say "No, that's fine." Dr. Gong should have asked me again, personally. I regret my decision allowing the student to observe because the student ended up performing the entire visit, checking in about extremely personal information that I was not comfortable with. Dr. Gong came in the last few minutes of the visit. Also, I could hear the two of them talking about me from outside the door, saying "should we see so-and-so next, or the HIV patient?" I am the HIV patient. This made me feel that there was a lack of confidentiality and courteousness surrounding the behavior between the student and Dr. Gong, and made me feel extremely uncomfortable, and singled out like a data specimen or a statistic, instead of a human or patient.

Reviewed on January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Gong is great. He listens and remembers details of my health history whether or not he actually remembers every patient or it's because he reads my file notes before coming in, I don't really care. At least he bothers to know and seems to actually care. Even his calls are caring.

For a walk-in appointment, I was very pleased by how swiftly I was able to be seen by a Doctor. Maybe I got lucky and there were not many walk-ins before me, maybe Advocate does a great job. I felt Dr. Gong was very personable and attentive to my needs, and made me feel better about what was going on with my eyesight. I did not feel rushed at all during my exam, which was wonderful. Some offices, you can the tell the Doctor wants to be done with you FAST, so they can move on to the next patient.

I have worked with Dr Gong for YEARS and look forward to seeing him whenever I am in the office. We have a healthy relationship where we can both bring up tough stuff. Dr Gong is super understanding when I bring him questions and I think that he values that I am not a "WebMD" kind of patient. I value his listening to me, and that we always seem to have a decent laugh with each visit. I really appreciate how thorough he is about what medications and OTC anything I am taking at each visit and is very supportive in assisting with referrals for specialists.
