I went to Dr. Hong because I had broken my ankle and was having some issues from my fall. He is a very intelligent, caring, and friendly doctor. He explained everything so I could understand, and his bedside manner was very comforting. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Hong is the man! I really recommend him, he's a great Doctor! He is straight forward, he listens, gives straight forward explanation on procedures, recovery, and the do's and don't's. His team of assistance, as well were very friendly and helpful! I ruptured my achilles tendon and was back on my feet in about 4 months with his guidance! Its a different journey for everyone as everyone's body heals differently. But I do recommend him! Thank you Dr. Hong!

After my second injury with the help from Bone & Joint Specialists, I could not be happier with the entire staff. The front desk, x-ray and physician are all kind, professional and efficient.

Dr Hong and his staff were amazing when I went in for my follow up after surgery! During this Covid-19 quarantine they got me straight back, checked my surgical site and redressed my ankle with limited exposure to myself and them. They took all necessary precautions. I appreciate all their efforts to give me the medical care I needed!

Dr. Hong operated on my broken ankle. I only had pain for one day after surgery and some minimal swelling. The incision was closed so well that I have almost no noticeable scarring. The entire staff was helpful and friendly at the three locations that I went to. I highly recommend Dr. Hong.

Dr. Hong took time to thoroughly explain my condition by letting me know my how, why and when in a way that I clearly understood. He really made me feel at ease after speaking to him. It was my first time meeting him. I wanted a second opinion from a specialist. I am so glad I found him.
