DrKwon is very professional and very caring!
in Wyoming |
Uncaring and treats patients with little respect.
My goal is to provide superior care to every patient, every time. I am sorry to learn that I did not meet your expectations in this regard. I invite you to call my office at 269-428-0819 and speak with either my office manager, Ronda, or myself. I pledge to listen to your feedback and work with my team to make sure I meet the high standards I have set as my professional goal.

Dr. Kwon immediately began solving my problem on the first visit. She was very professional; spoke directly to me and explained what procedures she was going to follow. She was very confident and quickly made me trust her judgement.
in Decatur, MI |
She is very caring and I would recommend her to anyone who needs a nephrologist. Everyone on her staff shows the utmost professionalism.
in Coloma, MI |
In treating my illness - Retroperitoneal Fibrosis- Dr. Kwon is the epitome of a caring professional in every way, including diagnosis, treatment, and patient/caregiver interaction. She is thorough in taking a history, patient in providing answers to questions, and has even taken time to call me at home on several occasions to give me treatment directions (and asked me to repeat info back to her). Moreover, she is the only doctor to ever tell me that my life is precious.
in Coloma, MI |
Very Knowledgeable, explained issues & answered questions & felt at ease. Looking forward to next visit.
in Dowagiac, MI |
I have been seeing Dr. Kwon for approximately two years. She is very pro-active and wants her patients to be as well-informed of our problems as we can be and she insures we get whatever education we need to make the best possible decisions about our problems. Dr. Kwon has an excellent bed side manner and is always realistic and comforting, as well as extremely knowledgeable, She has also responded to my night-time emails in a very timely manner. I highly depend on her suggestions/decisions

I had a kidney disease and this young lady did me good. She put me through hell to get rid of the disease, but to this day I feel 200 percent better. Yes I had to follow the Doctor order. I'm glad I did. This lady work a miracle on me. If anybody every ask for a kidney Doctor I would definitely recommend her. Thank you Dr. Kwon. P.S she has a great staff that work for her David Antisdel
