Very good.
Jul 12, 2023
I was very nervous about going knowing I'm going to need surgery and everybody from the staff at the front desk to the doctor. Everybody was so nice so polite and made you feel very comfortable. I even seen them go over and beyond to help a lady that her Uber driver didn't show up they charged her phone and made sure she had a ride home to me. That was awesome.

Every time I sent emails I received a timely respond from nurses and doctor - even after hours. This was very much appreciated as I had just had major surgery.

Dr. Hong and his surgical resident were incredibly helpful to me in deciding whether to proceed with surgery by another physician or not. He explained things in a way that helped me clarify what was going on and made my decision so much more clear. He was very nice, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I am very grateful for his consultation.
