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 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 |
I had my first appointment already my pain has gone way down. Dr.Hong also understood my pain from nerve damage cervical fusion and thoracic fusion which is rare . I haven't slept this good since before my accident in 2005.
