Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Absolutely, a great and caring doctor. I went through chemotherapy and the level of care was a lot better than what I could have anticipated.

Dr. Hong is incredible and I wouldn’t want anyone else taking care of my cancer and me. I’ve had cancer first diagnosed incorrectly in 1998 as benign so I’ve had many doctors including from Dana Farber who aren’t even close to Dr. Hong’s knowledge of me.

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.
