Dr. Song is amazing, he explained everything in regards to my surgery. Dr. Song even on the day of my surgery he assured me that everything was going to be okay, he was amazing explaining my next steps and healing process after my postop. Dr. Song explained what I can and can't do even when I was in physical therapy. I think what I appreciate the most about Dr. Song was that he did bring his point across in a very direct and assertive way cause I'm a little bull-headed and I did have to take this surgery very serious, he made it very clear that everything was going well and everything was going to be okay. When it was all said and done Dr. Song felt more like a close friend as well as Dr that I would refer to anyone looking for a Dr that specializes in his field. Dr. Walter J. Song is by far my to go to doctor in his field.

Dr. Song has done carpal tunnel surgery on both my wrists and a cyst removal on one finger. I have found him to be very professional and thorough. I had no unanswered questions. Dr. Song has a great bedside manner, and put me completely at ease (as did all the great attending staff) from the get go. My surgeries and recoveries went very well and the results are what I expected. I absolutely would recommend Dr. Song to anyone!

We waited a month for our daughter (who is in great pain) to see him. We suddenly had our appointment cancelled. He decided to move practices leaving his patients out to dry. Our daughter will have to be in pain for another 2 weeks because of Dr Song’s inability to to care for his patients. And evidently there is nothing that can be done about it. Very frustrating.

I was referred to Dr. Song for carpal tunnel, by Dr. Koe, seeing me for my knee. The scheduling staff would not schedule me an appointment without a written referral by my primary or Dr. Song and an xray. Bozos! Obviously, Dr. Song does not need any new patients with excellent insurance and a valid medical issue!
