What People Say About Dr. Hoyman Hong, MD
RecentMost Helpful

I work directly with Dr. Hong as a NCM for my patients who are injured from work related injuries. Dr. Hong is very compassionate when working with each patient. He listens to their needs, addresses their concerns and puts an effective treatment plan in place that will help the patients eventually return to work at pre injury status. Dr. Hong is very professional and I would recommend him with all my patients.

Dr. Hong has been my pain management doctor since middle of 2011. If anyone is looking for the best pain management doctor in the Bay Area? Dr Hoyman Hong is #1!!! No other doctors can top him or even come close. How confident am I? If you do not agree with what I openly express my feelings. I've been his patient for six years. I trust him with all the decisions he suggested. I never had doubts? He really cares and want the best for his pt and I! I trust Dr with my life, only he knows me best:)

Truly a great doctor. He really listens to my issues and explains his strategies. His treatments have helped restore my quality of life. His office staff at both of his locations is also outstanding. I couldn't be happier.

I was a long time patient of dr. Hong, We would drive 4 hours for my visits but he is worth it. I had to stop going for personal reasons, and I have not been able to find a dr. Who can come close to his knowledge, he cares about his patients, takes the time to get to know each one, if you have back problems, the spine is the place to go.
