From my 1st visit with Dr. Kwon for a wrist injury, he made me feel comfortable, answered all my questions and took a conservative approach, which I appreciated! When we decided to try steroid injections, he was very patient about my needle phobia! I did end up having to have surgery and I couldn't have been more relieved and confident about Dr. Kwon performing it!

Dr Kwon performed emergency surgery on my thumb after a fall on an icy sidewalk. He was very informative and has a very professional manner. I am grateful for everything he did for me in my time of need.

I had Dr. Kwon assigned to me for a back surgery to do the closure and he did an amazing job. He was very attentive to checking in on me and he made me very comfortable. My scar is hardly noticeable. His attention to detail is unparalleled.

I love Dr Kwon and his staff. I have used him on 2 different occasions with hand issues.
