Dr Hong was great! No pain! Very nice and professional. Extremely thorough. Was looking for a good podiatrist. My daughter went to him and said how great he was so I went there and I found my Podiatrist. The entire office staff was very nice and professional.

Dr. Hong treated my Mother for an ankle fracture. He was very caring and patient with us. He was extremely concerned with making sure my Mother (who is 84 years old and has osteoporosis) healed properly. He even called the rehab facility she was in to make sure she was receiving appropriate care. His staff is very friendly, professional, and caring. I would highly recommend Dr. Hong. He is everything a doctor should be, knowledgeable, competent, caring, and kind.

I came to Dr. Hong looking for a second opinion about having surgery and I was pleasantly surprised how knowledgeable he was. Needless to say I chose Dr. Hong to do my surgery and have been highly satisfied with him as my doctor. Everyone I have encountered at his office has been kind and caring, never having to wait more then 5 minutes for my appointment. Carissa, Dr. Hong MA, has been wonderful from the start. I would recommend Dr. Hong to my family and friends.

I was pretty bummed after tearing my Achilles’ tendon just before July 4th. I was calling around trying to find a doctor who would see me as soon as possible. Finally a friend recommended me to Dr. Hong. He was able to see me right away. He did a great job during my surgery and my recovery. He, as well as his nursing staff, were so helpful and kind. I would recommend Dr. Hong to everyone.
