Easy to talk to about my condition. Had time for me and reviewed what my options where, honest about my best choices I am facing. Next week plan on having the GL treatment.

Dr. Hong was referred to me by my primary care practice. I viewed Dr. Hong's website before I met with him, which provided good background information. I was not disappointed at my initial meeting. He is well-informed and easy to talk to about medical problems. I've been pleased with the services...more

Seemed hurried and more interested in telling me what an amazing doctor he was rather than listening to me. I get it, you went to Stanford and Harvard but what can you do for me. There was a young man trailing him who kept smiling at me in a very uncomfortable way. Would never go back...
