Dr. Hong is exceptional and so is his team. He does a great job of explaining treatment options and adapts as circumstances change. He leverages his highly qualified team to give you the best treatment at every opportunity. No visit is a waste of time. He personally calls you if new information arises outside of office/hospital visits. He is always prepared for each meeting and pays attention to detail. He is honest and kind, as well as motivational because he carefully and consistently shares a treatment plan that helps you stay engaged. Finding this very adaptable, transparent, intelligent and empathetic doctor felt like winning the lottery.
