Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I was misdiagnosed. I went to see Dr. Song after months of sharp lower back pain. He didn't even order an MRI, but instead tried to sell me a back brace. I fortunately went to another doctor who not only recommended an MRI, but also discovered that I had a tumor growing on my spine. Do not recommend.

This guy missed my lumbar spine stenosis. He didn't even examine me or read the MRI report. Months later when I was not getting better but worse I lost control or my bladder and am having the surgery I should have had 7 months ago. I would not recommend this so called doctor to anyone. Smug and condescending. Tried to sell me a back brace. Thanks for nothing. Do not see this guy under any circumstances.

Dr Song operated on my husband when he was still working at Northwestern Memorial hospital in Chicago. I brought my husband in a wheel chair to see him in emergency. He had a problem with his lower back discs, Dr Song seemed to be pleasant and knowledgeable. He recommended Minimally invasive surgery. Surgery took 6 hours and Dr Song never came out to talk to me. My husband suffered a great deal of pain and discomfort, and still does to this day, constant pain that doesn’t go away...
