Extremely through and compassionate pulmonary physician when he treated my father during the last years of his chronic progressive illness. He would make sure the hospital staff understood the treatment plans completely. Almost all his visits were in the hospital, so I am not familiar with office staff. When necessary he transferred my father to another facility and continued his care. I found him to straightforward regarding the condition and prognosis. We were lucky to have as an attending physician.

Most recently we lost our grandfather and I have to say that I couldn't have asked for a better doctor. He was caring and compassionate not only with my grandfather but with our family as well throughout this rough time. He listened to our questions and concerns and explained everything perfectly. He is the best doctor I have ever met. God Bless You Dr. Songco
