Dr. Kwak is great. She has been treating me for Thyroid Cancer. Her guidance has been thoughtful, constructive, and put me at ease. Her confidence made me feel very good about my treatment. She is very organized and gives you the tools to keep your treatment organized as well. Very good experience in a difficult time.

I was a new patient, never got to meet with her. I had left my paperwork at home, came straight from work and was 35 minutes early. Was told i have to reschedule as that was not enough time to input information into the computer. i needed to be an hour early. i left and cancelled my appt as i realized i did not want ot be with a Dr. who put inputting information into the system over meeting with a new patient. After i read the yelp reviews i am glad i made this decision. Unprofessional!

I found Dr. Kwak because I had hyperthyroidism. My GP doctor did nothing it was a dermatologist friend that looked at my blood test and told me to see an endocrinologist. She knew exactly what to do and within two weeks I was feel much better. She is systematic, not talkative, there is no small talk, but she is a good doctor.
