Dr.hong doesn't want to hear what the patient has to say. He refuses to listen if you call to ask a question because you can't come to his office that day. He yells at his patients and staff, and He makes patients do work his secretaries should be doing. His patients always seem very nervous and afraid because he snaps out of nowhere.

Demds only Yes or No answers. Say more, he tells you"Stop talking,Yes No only".Stated he wanted all my doctors to call him.Offered to leave all contact information with reception.He stated"No,you need to tell them call me".In 5 visits got treated 1x. Chged for all 5.

I never been to this doctor but my neighbor has been going to him for years. The last time she went to see him that woman could barely walk she was so drugged up she walked into his office instead of him getting her some help he just gives her prescriptions .Just keeps writing her prescription for medication she does not need this this is why we have a drug problem in this country becauseof so-called doctors like him.

I have been to several pain specialist in the last couple of years... The last two would have left me for dead, there was NO HELP.... Dr. Hong takes his time and cares for his patients... AND yes I have heard the rumors... But desperate for some help, I saw him...If you are in TRUE pain, HE WILL HELP YOU!!! THANKS Dr.Hong for my life back..

Dr. Hong will request personal favors from patients, such as: fixing his printer, baking him something, etc. He also has poor bedside manner, as he will tell patients, "Don't Talk." whenever he chooses. Dr. Hong appears more interested in keeping his records "perfect" than actual patient care. The waiting time to see him can take up to 3 hours. He is very mean to his staff and will yell at them in front of patients. He has also discusses confidential information in the waiting room.
