It was a pleasure to meet Dr. Song! He was extremely informative, easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable. I came home and immediately called his scheduling coordinator. Unfortunately she wasn't answering so I look forward to talking to her tomorrow! I'm still nervous, but am feeling reassured by Dr. Song's expertise and experience!

Dr Song is personable, professional, efficient and most importantly, he did a great job in repairing my rotator cuff injury. He explained, in advance, exactly what I could expect from the procedure and how my personal contribution in terms of adherence to instructions and physical therapy would be an important contributor to success. Finally, I appreciate that all Covid-19 safety precautions were employed. I am completely satisfied with Dr Song, the associates and the physical therapists and staff.

This is the first time I ever went to an orthopedic doctor. Dr. song was very professional, friendly, and put me at ease right away. I feel confident in listening to his advice. I have already recommended him to my cousin. I did not answer the ease of scheduling urgent appointments because it did not apply to me.
