Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Hwang and her entire team at USC are the best! They provide the most compassionate, thorough, and kind care and genuinely care about their patients' overall health and quality of life. A family member of mine has inflammatory bowel disease and we found Dr. Hwang in desperate times, after having seen doctors all throughout California, including at Cedars and UCLA. I can confidently say that Dr. Hwang is the kindest, smartest gastroenterologist that we have encountered!

She needs to control her temper, needs to encourage and support patients. She needs more life experience. She is knowledgeable.
