Dr. Hwang is a personable physician who spends quality time when it comes to listening, diagnosing, and pursuing a beneficial treatment for my situation. Every time I visit the doctor, he recommends improving medications and doses towards trying to find a better way to treat my seizures. I leave each visit feeling my questions have been answered and look forward to trying a new method of controlling my seizures. I am very pleased to have Dr. Hwang as my physician.
