I have 2 very rare diseases and spend a great deal of my time in fear of dying again. Apparently I have been code blue twice and in the ER 3 times. He has helped me through the entire journey since it started 1 1/2 yrs ago. Including visiting me in the Neuro-ICU before I was even his patient. He was referred to me by my ER doctors and 2 nurses who both told me I would be a ragdoll but my mind would remain clear. I had never heard of ragdoll diseases and have spent a great deal of time in TEDX where the doctors, nurses and scientists speak. I look up everything he says and it is always in JAMA, not just WEB-MD. He is very knowledgeable and kind. He never loses patience with me even though I get anxious and lose patience with myself. He has a wonderful staff who never judges me, even on the bad days. My family and I are very grateful for him. I would recommend him to anyone who needs to understand their disease and learn to live with it. He is truly the best and we depend on him.

I have been going to Dr Kwon for several years. He stays on top of the latest migraine treatments and is always very knowledgable. My only complaint would be. It's very difficult to reschedule appointments. If I miss an appointment due to a migraine, it will take at least 3 months to get in again.

The UW head of muscular neurology recommended him for my GBS. I went through the trouble to get the referral from my PCP. Called.. appointment for July, which was a little further out than I was hoping for. This was Feb/Mar when I scheduled. So I asked to be placed on cancellation notification list. On April 24th I was called and notified that my appointment was now in October. I've never felt less valued as a human being. Especially since I began experiencing a reoccurrence of symptoms.
