Valerie is a terrific hygentist. However, as of today at 11 AM, I am actively seeking another Endodontist other that Dr. Wong as recommended by your office. My aborted root canal was a nightmare. I don't think that the office nor I were prepared for the special attention I need as a nervous "gagger"! Maybe several options of endodontists should be provided before this terrible procedure begins for others to consult, who will do a better job of preparing you for his procedure!!
