Dr. Ng, just wanted to give you a update on my ankle since surgery in October (25th). Last Saturday (15th), I ran a 50k in Copper Mountain. I was able to run in 6 hours and 26 mins placing 31 out of 82. Other than being slightly slower than I was previously, I feel that I’m back! Just wanted to share the success story.

Dr. Ng, you will forever be my “hero” doc who will do anything to help improve/make a person’s quality of life better/less painful. You are truly a “one of a kind”. I hope the world treated you with the same quality that you provided to so many.

Thank you so much Dr. Ng for the awesome care. I am very thankful to have 2 good feet and no pain. I appreciate all you did for me. It’s taken a lot of time and extra care from you. I am so grateful and glad to have you be my physician.

I wanted to thank Dr. Ng for doing such an awesome job repairing my torn ligament in my ankle. He said my ankle was one of the loosest he had seen and he did my surgery in April and by mid July, I was back to jogging and now can run 3.5 miles without pain at all. Thank you for improving my quality of life.

I just wanted to send Dr. Ng a note to thank him for the amazing job he did on my ankles. It truly has given me so much of my mobility back, pain free. I can wear all my old shoes again!

Dr. Ng, I would personally like to thank you for everything you have done on my ankle. The time looking over x-rays and MRI results and finding answers. Every time I walk into your office you say something like “Hey kiddo” and assure me there is nothing I can do that you can’t fix. I wouldn’t want any other doctor working on my foot.

Dr. Ng was simply amazing. He made a fast and accurate diagnosis and scheduled my surgery quickly. Although the process was a little lengthy, Dr. Ng made the right call and got me back to work sooner than anticipated. Thank you Dr. Ng!

I wanted to reach out to say thank you again to Dr. Ng. I truly appreciate your awesomeness! Not only did you pay attention to my MRIs, but you paid attention to me as a person! Your willingness to answer my questions and your patience made a painful surgery a much less stressful situation than it could have been otherwise. I’m size months out from surgery and back in tip-top shape. I even did a 5K a few weeks ago! Thanks again.

Dr. Ng, thank you so much for doing an amazing job with my surgery! I am now following my life-long dream of playing college lacrosse.

Michele J

We want to thank Dr. Ng and his staff for all their wonderful care. It’s hard to find a doctor who really cares. Hope you have a wonderful life.

Cindy & John P

I just want to thank you Dr. Ng for my surgery well done. In the beginning, it was a little scary! You came through like an angel – very much appreciated!

Anita W

Thank you so much Dr. Ng and staff for taking such good care of me this fall with the screw removal, despite the pressure of me moving out of the country 16 days later…you guys put me back together even better than before! I had truly considered a half marathon to be well outside the scope of my physical capabilities. But I proved myself wrong, and on May 4th I made it across the finish line in beautiful Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Thank you so much for the critical role you played in my recovery.


Dr. Ng, thank you for doing such a great job on our daughter’s foot! You removed a screw placed by another doctor in another state that was backing out, plus managed to do it in time for her departure to do public health work in Hanoi, Vietnam. We are all happy to report that while the challenges in her new venture are many, her foot is not one of them. Thank you so very much.

We’re really grateful for everything you do, Dr. Ng. You did an incredible job on my ankle. The results were truly fantastic. I could not have completed Ironman Coeur d’Alene 2013 without your help. After the 2.4 mile swim, I felt strong on the 112 mile bike and my ankle felt great. I was worried my ankle would be sore after the 26.2 mile run, but it was probably the only body part that didn’t hurt. You did a great job. Thanks again.
