Patient Comments (3)
Tulare, CA |
Dr. Hong would probably be a better MD if he didn't try to see 70 patients an hour. For the 2 minutes he'll actually spend with a patient he appears to be pretty knowledgeable. His office staff and wife seemed to be under the impression that they are doctors as well so if you ever call his office expect the staff to be rude and non-compliant.

Horrible experience all they care about is the money, not their patients! His wife is office manager and runs the show the doctor has no say so. I was warned by others not to go due to very rude staff - lesson learned!

Horrible! He doesn't care about his patients
