Patient Comments (2)
Nashville, TN |
Very good pediatric ENT. He placed tubes in for my 13 month old daughter and had excellent bedside manner. He was very patient and explained everything very well.
in New York, NY |
He saved my life, what more can be said! :) I had severe secondary bleeding in the middle of the night from a tonsillectomy performed a week ago in NYC (only 2% have post-op bleeding). Dr Kwong was the ENT on-call at Robert Wood and was incredibly efficient, reassuring, professional, etc at performing emergency surgery to stop the profuse bleeding. He was there for me at the most terrifying time of my life and I am truly grateful. Extremely skilled, good bedside manner, highly recommended.
