Dr. Hong is a fine doctor when you see him, he’s so friendly and understanding. Unfortunately, no one returns phone calls for weeks at a time, even in his new practice on Park Lane. Later stage cancer is hard enough to deal with but worrying and waiting for weeks on end to have questions answered about side effects to my medications and other symptoms that are new to me is an additional burden I would avoid if I were at the start of this difficult journey. I’m sorry.
