Dr. Hong has always been prompt with his patience scheduling. He listens to his patients experiences, and sufferings. Seeks to find them help through medicine. He's not a counselor, he's not a shrink. He's a MD. He does his job wonderfully & has always been kind to me.
in Edwardsville, IL |
Great doctor who listens and cares. Highly recommended.

I was a patient of Dr Hong's for a few years and he had me on several different drugs. One in particular he had me on was at the max dose and little did I know I was overdosing one it as it was too strong for me. I was rushed by ambulance to the ER and admitted to the ICU for 3 days and the on staff doctors said I had a lethal dose in my system. I'm lucky to be alive. Do NOT trust this doctor. He is a pill pusher.
Dear patient, I would love to review the case with you if you can tell me your name. I will personally call you to discuss the case with you. FYI, ,Taking max dose of a drug is NOT overdosing. In any case, call my office if you like.

Dr Hong is a very good doctor and cares about your health. And he will find out how to treat you either by himself doing tests or sending you to a specialist. He is serious when talking about your health but he does often laugh with you about certain things and I really enjoy those visits... I leave feeling happy and positive about my day ??
Glen Carbon, IL |
Waited for more than an hour each the three times I met with Dr. Hong. First was years ago, then twice in the past few months. Unbelievably long wait times. Just left his office after waiting for over and hour and 20 minutes. I left an angry voice mail, and to his credit, he returned my call to ask if he could make it better. Not a chance. If he had proper office support and scheduling, he would be good, however, his lack of consideration for his patients and their time led me to drop him.
Dear patient, you called for emergency appointment and we got in the same day. I am sorry you have to wait a little bit. Most patient would apprciate the fact that they can be seen the same day. I again apologize for your wait. Good luck with your future medical care.

Dr. hong is an amazing doctor he's friendly , he cares for his patients he has helped me so much .... he's very concerned w/getting answers he's the best doctor I have ever had the staff is so friendly & Dr. Hong is the best I'm so excited he's got me a long way with helping & he's such an intelligent Doctor
Edwardsville, IL |
He,s ok if your looking for help finding the right doctor for your condition. .other wise he's there to help with pills for pain.
we only gave pain medication if YOU asks for pain medication due to pain. Nobody force pain medication upon you.

I highly recommend Dr Hong to anyone who's looking for a new doctor. When I became a new patient, I had some medical issues that other doctors could not identify. As a new patient of Dr Hong's, after doing lab work research etc. Dr Hong found my stage III kidney cancer and he saved my life. Not only is he an excellent doctor, he is very straightforward and easable approachable.Hisstaff always conduct themselves in a professional and timely manner .
in Bethalto, IL |
Dr. Hong says hes a family medicine practice, but seems to be more of an adult only practice. He doesnt offer vaccines (then why accept children) he told me we need to go to the health clinic for routine vaccinations! My thing is why? YOU ARE OUR DOCTOR, not the dr. At the health clinic! Its absolutely ridiculous! My insurance then messed something up with payment, and he called me repeatedly, along with my husband, saying that i need to fix it asap so he could paid! Switching drs asap!
in South Roxana, IL |
Lacks compassion and empathy for his patients and doesn't possess the qualities of a decent human being, let alone a DOCTOR. If he doesn't like your insurance and they do not pay, as fast as he sees necessary, he will find any reason he can, to no longer provide medical treatment. Cares more about his wallet then the well being of the people he sees and I don't believe this man cares whatsoever about the oath he took "TO DO NO HARM"
Melissa, You changed physician on you own and when you find out that physician does not treat you for pain, you decides to come back to our practice. I am sorry but it does not work that way. I am glad you found a new physician and please contine to receive care from your new physician. Your discharge has nothing to do with your insurance by the way

DO NOT GO TO DR HONG If I could give 0 stars i would he doesn't exam you in an exam room which are filthy btw he takes you to his office where his desk and chair is .very disorganized he wouldn't let me go to a Dr Vist and ask about more than 1 issue that is going on in my body very ignorant !receptionist can't even schedule an appointment doesn't need a license very disorganized wen he does diagnose you he looks it up on a computer in order to diagnose your issue he doesn't need to be a DR!
in Edwardsville, IL |
Dr. Hong is a no nonsense doctor. He doesn't baby patients but addresses all issues. He will get you what you need and send you on your way. He is thorough with labs. He will prescribe most meds. It seems that he wants to be efficient, get his patients what they need, and get them on their way. I think he is an excellent doctor but only for people who aren't looking for a customer service experience. His staff is very nice.

Been going to Dr. Hong for over 10 years best Doctor I've had.
in Maryville , IL |
I would just like to take a moment to share my experience with Dr. Hong. I was in very poor condition when I went to see him. He has spent an exceptional amount of time working on my case trying to get to the bottom of what was wrong with me. He is answered every question I have asked and has worked diligently to find answers to the questions that I needed. In my opinion he is one of the best doctors in the area.The staff is VERY pleasant. Cheryl F.

I would not recommend this doctor to family and friends. He is not interested in learning about his patients. All he wants to do is write prescriptions and order tests and send you on your way.
Order test is part of the diagnosis, I guess you prefer a physician who GUESSes your medical condition without ordering any test.
