Dr. Hwang is an amazing doctor. He operated on my back and gave me a second chance at life. He explained things in a way I could understand. He also has an amazing PA; Scott Anderson. They make a great team and work well together. I recommend Dr. Hwang to anyone who needs the best surgeon in his field.

I had an Anterior Cervical Discectomy with Fusion. When I woke up in the recovery room, I could feel me thumb and fore finger that had been numb for the last 4 months. I felt zero pain. I did not use the Patient Administered Analgesic (PCA) once in the recovery. I did not need or use any pain killers or NSAIs at anytime. The fusion is progressing very well. Everything is great.

D. Hwang is the best. I recommend him to everyone. He saved my friend. Then I needed him for cervical neck fusion. Now other friends of mine are using him and they trust him as much as I do.

Dr. Hwang preformed surgery on me in December, 2017. I was in pain for almost a year by the time I had gone to Dr. Hwang. He and his staff were very professional and kind. Now I'm pain free and so happy with his recommendation and the surgery was very successful. I would recommend Dr. Hwang to anyone. I couldn't thank him enough.

Dr. Hwang is very personable, speaks excellent English, and explains everything in detail so that we could understand what the problem was, what the solution was, and what the plan to fix it was. We did not feel rushed during the exam or discussion and my wife and I liked him very much. I am going to have to have another surgery in the fall and will definitely have Dr. Hwang perform the surgery.

Dr. Hwang spent quality time explaining in detail my concerns regarding my back issues. He presented options to treat my back issues before surgery. My husband and I are very confident with his diagnosis.
