My experienced with Dr Hwee is very positive and reassuring. I found apprehension and resistance from other physician to treat me but Dr Hwee did not hesitate. He not only did what he said he would do but he also alleviate the possible future complications. I am very well pleased with my experience here and would recommend the service to anyone that i know is of need.Karen DR Hwee's assistant is awesome.Thank you for your understanding,your KINDNESS and thoroughness and for that im very well PLEASED... GOD BLESS YOU DR HWEE. YOU TOUCHED MY LIFE....

Dr. Hwee was an absolute pleasure - despite my serious diagnosis. Cancer is never an easy disease to process or overcome, but Dr. Hwee made it understandable. His patience and attention to detail and explanation was comforting! He answered questions from myself and my husband always with a smile. My breast reconstruction was a success and more than a year later, i can honestly say that Dr. Hwee was a critical factor. I highly recommend the office and Dr. Hwee in particular.

I cant say enough good things about Dr. Hwee. He by far is the most caring and attentive doctor i have ever encountered.I have broke a lot of bones and he was the best out of all of them. Anytime i needed him he was a phone call away and didnt ever act or sound like i was bothering him. Karen was awesome also. The whole office was a pleasant experience to a horrible situation. Thank you so much for the wonderful care!!

My wife had a fractured breast implant (from 2006). It was removed, a mamoplexy was performed with lift and also a reverse abdominoplasty to flatten the abdomen. The procedures came out very well and the doctor was exceptionally careful to explain exactly what to expect. The outcome was very good. Robert Borushok MD

Broke my nose during a car accident and had to see Dr. Hwee in very short notice. He made the time to see my within two days and was very helpful and attentive. I was in surgery within 3 days and everything went excellent! He is an amazing doctor!
