Dr. Hong and each and everyone of his staff are polite, professional and compassionate. No problem is ever too great or small and they Their scheduling is par excellence, I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes past my scheduled appointment time. Beyond their overall conscience care, the office is immaculately clean, billing issues are easily resolved and phone requests are handled promptly and efficiently. I wouldn't go anywhere else and frequently refer others to them.

I have been seeing Dr Hong for over 5 years now and he and his staff have done a wonderful job managing my chronic pain issues and keeping me off of narcotics to date. Dr Hong has many techniques in trying to get a handle on pain and keeping it manageable. I have recommended him many times to friends that have ongoing pain.

My experience so far has been positive. I try to book the first appt of the day and I usually can get in and out in under a half hour. I still work so that's huge for me. Staff is courteous, helpful and the doctors are on top of things. All and all I would definitely recommend.

I have been going to Dr Hong for about two years... He not only listens carefully to your concerns,but he cares... He doesn't just push meds like so many others, he works with you to find the right treatment for your chronic pain. He is ver honest. I am a 65 year old woman with severe chronic neck and spine pain and he always finds a way to help... If he can't for some reason or another he will be Frank...

I have been suffering in Extreem PAIN since 2007 from broken Back. I have had what I thought was the Best treatment available. The Doctor was so well known no other Doctor would Treat Me until I checked my self in the Hospital. At this time I meet Dr. Hong who's been treating me ever since and I would not have any other Pain Doctor. Doctor Hong did his fellowship under my old Doctor and He is by far The Best Pain Management Doctor in the Midwest . VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND !

in Westmont il |
Very understanding and listens to what I have to say.
in Hinsdale, IL |
I suffer from degenerative disc disease. I am off the chart with pain. I cannot get a new spine like people replace knees or hips. I've been seeing Dr Hong for going on 2 years and he is truly helping me so I can at least do basic functions. He provides surgical treatment and pain meds. His knowledge and skills are outstanding. Yes, I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Dr Hong. Sam
Dr. Hong and his entire office staff provided me with excellent care. He was very compassionate and empathetic with the way he provided medical care. He treated pain it should be treated, the same as any medical disorder. He NEVER treated me as being wimpy because I couldn't tolerate pain. He also never made me feel that I was there looking for medication. He knew I was suffering and he offered all avenues of help that were available to me. His office staff treated me great. Overall A+
in Naperville, IL |
Unacceptable! Poorly trained nurses. Anesthetic had no effect during procedure. Dr. punctured the dura (spinal column sheath) causing me to have a seizure when I tried to stand up in recovery. They should have sent me to the ER (where I ended up the next day) but instead filled me w/ pain meds and sent me home.
in Hinsdale, IL |
Four yrs. ago I started to get stabbing pains down both my legs. I was referred to Dr. Hong by a local interventional radiologist. After an MRI, Dr. Hong gave me one epidural in my lower back and the pain in my legs stopped. Recently it was diagnosed that I had two herniated discs in my mid back region after 10 weeks of pain and tingling. Again, Dr. Hong administered an epidural to two regions of my mid back and the pain and tingling stopped. Again, I can vouch for his expertise.
in Hinsdale, IL |
Dr. Hong is ok. But he is very busy so instead they make you see his physician assistant. The physician assistant names Stacey is terrible. She is unable to get my medications right for 3 months now. I've been in pain and nasious every single day. People like her should not practice medicine. Their office would not change the medication over the phone either, they'll mare you wait for weeks until the next available appointment while you're in pain.
in Bolingbrook, IL |
Dr. Hong is a very good Doctor and a kind, genuinely caring man.
in Naperville, IL |
Dr. Hong is my Pain Specialist and handles my prescription and procedure needs in a very competent and professional manner. I suffer from many spine related conditions such as Spinal Arthritis, Fibro, Peripheral Neuropathy, Chronic Cluster Migraines, which all generate a terrific amount of pain in my entire body, especially the legs and feet. I have gone to Dr. Hong for over 4 years now and found is services excellent. He is very compassionate and empathectic toward my condition.
in Chicago, IL |

in La Grange, IL |
Dr. Hong explained everything in terms that I understood was willing to spend as much time as I needed to ask questions
Ver professional. Took interest in my case followed throug well
in Plainfield, IL |
I finally have met a doctor who listens! I've explained as best as I can about the effects of my chronic pain to countless doctors. They either aren't listening, don't care, don't understand, think I'm shopping for drugs, etc. Dr. Hong treated me with compassion, respect & understanding. I am very grateful & recommend him to everyone, even to my doctors who aren't listening.
in Northlake, IL |
