What People Say About Dr. Wayne Hwang, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Hwang has been my cardiologist for about seven years. He has done at least five stents in my heart, all with excellent outcomes. He is kind and exceptionally caring and considerate. He is part of the outstanding team at Virginia Mason. I would not consider seeing any other cardiologist! I feel that I owe my life to Dr. Hwang and Dr. Velamoor, who did open heart surgery when that was necessary.
