Verified Patient Reviews

5 out of 5 stars

Dr. Hong is extremely focused in my continuing care. He listens to my explanations of my symptoms and concerns. He calls me back when I request to speak to him. Using MyChart is user friendly and the staff reviews my message and responds promptly. I have never had an issue with the communication by using this method. Dr. Hong makes recommendations in regards to my care but ultimately, we make decisions together. He has cared for me over the past 10 years and would leave this practice unless it was absolutely necessary. His expertise, professionalism and bedside manner is always 100%. Thank you, Dr. Hong for your exceptional care. You are so appreciated!

Dr. Hong is an excellent doctor. He treats people with respect and is always willing to discuss questions or issues. I felt confident in him from the very start. I started seeing him 8+ years ago after being diagnosed. I now live in Va and continue to travel to Ct. for my follow up visits. He is most definitely worth the trip.
