"Dr. Melvin Wong saved my life. Previously, I was misdiagnosed as having moyamoya, and I had undergone surgery at Stanford Hospital by Dr. Gary Steinberg. After the surgery I completely decompensated. my blood pressure skyrocketed to the 200s, and I almost died in my apartment. Unfortunately, Dr. Gary Steinberg had no idea what was going on, and could care less; he abandoned me as a patient. Th next 8 months were a terrifying stream of events involving multiple admissions to the hospital, failure of my bypass by Dr. Steinberg, and 23 ambulance rides. I was in and out of the emergency room and nobody could help me. I was seen by several Queen's Medical Center neurologists an neurosurgeons who either misdiagnosed me or failed to recognize the severity of my diagnosis. When I first came to Dr. Wong and told him I had moyamoya, he was very skeptical. This is because Dr. Gary Steinberg did not perform a proper workup, and he has seen several poor results of Dr. Steinberg. Dr. Wong immediately ...
performed several tests and imaging studies. At this point, we learned that I had a very rare disease called 'cerebral vasculitis.' It affects 2 out of every million people and has a 17-20% death rate. Dr. Wong immediately consulted Dr. Alan Oki, rheumatologist, and they started me on high-dose steroids as well as other immunosuppressant medications. I gradually started getting better and my TIAs(mini-strokes) disappeared; my blood pressures which were vacillating and completely out-of-control started to normalize; I started feeling much better and over the course of 6 months I began to feel normal again. I highly recommend Dr. Melvin Wong if you are experiencing any type of cerebrovascular disease, strokes, etc.. He trained at Cleveland clinic which is the second best hospital in the nation. although his staff can be frustrating at times, he is worth the wait, and is extremely thorough. He does not leave any stone unturned. I highly recommend him as a stroke and cerebrovascular specialty neurologist. "
