Patient Comments (4)
Frisco, TX |
Dr Hwang staff is extremely horrible , they never call you to tell you the test results and for prescriptions you need to call 100 times , horrible experience.
Duncanville, TX |
This pompous egomaniac seems to add credentials at will. During our short patient/physician relationship, terminated by him while I was seeking a different neurologist, he became a psychiatrist and specialized in pain management, credentials not presented when I first found him. Recommending him to anyone else? This would be a negative number if such a rating were possible.

He take his time to listen to what you had to say and what was going on with your body
Duncanville |
Staff would not send paperwork in timely fashion, had to call 5 times to finally just decide to fire him and find another care provider. Dr. Hwang would not focus on my complaints. Would not explain his care strategy. Very dissatisfied and would NEVER recommend his practice to a friend.
