Recommendations

  • Anna Sammamish, WA 07.13.12

    Dr. Ong started working with my daughter when she was just weeks old. During our most stressful days in the hospital she provided us encouragement and support while providing superior care for our child. She continues to see her and we wouldn't have anyone else take her place.

  • Jo Bremerton, WA 03.04.11

    Great doc. Was and is very generous, understanding and helpful in dealing with our unique and complex family circumstances regarding our daughter's care.
