Nicest and best doctor I meet. I had back pain for two years, and yesterday I got my lumbar epidural steroid injection. My back is already better. The injection was not painful at all. I recommend Dr. Chong. He has the latest equipments to give the injection correctly.

The worse and most unfriendly Dr. I have ever been to. I don't think he knows how to smile. I had rather suffer than see him again.
