Other reviews of this doctor are accurate: unhelpful, condescending. I cannot in good conscience recommend this doctor.

Dr. Kwon doesn't have any compassion towards patients. He's here to make money and that's that. Basically it's buy-and-sale transaction. You give me money for my service (prescribing meds for your child). No desire to make patient better. The most condescending doctor I've ever met "I never seen a child like yours who's not in mental hospital.". If we ask questions, he's not interested in answering. Well being of your child is none of his business. Doesn't take insurance, bills upfront.

We have always been very pleased with Dr. Kwon's explanations and understanding of my daughter's condition. He diagnosed her when others couldn't. He always responds promptly to our calls and concerns. I've referred him to others and will continue to do so.

If you've been through meds and know what you are doing and just need someone to prescribe meds. Otherwise Dr. Kwon tends to miss things, and prescribe harder line meds than necessary. Very aloof from patients.
