    "It gives me immense pleasure in providing a professional recommendation for Dr Voi Shim Wong, Consultant Gastroenterologist and a great colleague. He has looked after several of my patients, which I referred to him for Upper / Lower GI endoscopy (Gastroscopy / Colonoscopy). I received nothing short of a great feedback from all my patients re Dr Wong's professionalism, clinical skills and care that they received under his care. He works very hard and always remains available for his patients and colleagues who rely on his clinical acumen and expertise in managing patients with all types of gastroenterological diseases I strongly recommend him for all GI problems particularly those that warrant endoscopic intervention.
