What Can You Expect During Your Visit?

As a patient of the clinic, you can expect minimal waiting time and individualized health care services. We believe that every patient’s time is as valuable as the doctor’s, thus we normally do not book more than one patient in the same time slot. We also ask our patients to respect the doctor’s schedule and other patients’ appointments by being on time and informing us if they are going to be late or cannot make the appointment.

The initial visit is the most important visit and it often takes 1 to 1 ½ hours to complete. Dr. Kwok will need to take a full history of your current condition, know your past medical history, understand your diet and lifestyle, review rest of your body systems, go over your current medications and supplementations, and perform physical exams if indicated.  At the end of your first visit, Dr. Kwok will discuss your condition and overall treatment plan with you. Follow-up visits are usually between 15 – 30 minutes. 

Office Hours

The clinic is open Monday to Saturday (except statutory holidays).  However, Dr. Kwok only sees patients between 9:30am – 5:30pm Tuesday to Saturday by appointment.
