Verified Patient Reviews
The ladies at the front when I walked in was not friendly. Never looked me in my face and was busy doing other work as I stood there trying to make conversation but was not interested. The young lady who did my pre testing was great and pleasant as she answered my questions. She made my visit pleasant until I went back to visit the doctor. The assistant who came in with the doctor bedside manner is terrible. I am there concerned about my vision and she constantly kept telling me what I did wrong and how it was my fault. She kept saying “you did it to yourself!” I was so frustrated when I left the office and the doctor did seem like she cared what the assistant was saying to me.
Once the Dr. got in the room it went quickly, the wait time is an inconvenience.
She answered questions and explained all aspects of the exam. She is very pleasant.
Dr. Hong is personable, knowledgeable,& has seen me on short notice when I had problems. I highly recommend.
Always feel rushed in this office. At least this time I didn't get lost in their system while waiting for eyes to dilate. Dr. Hong is OK, Key-Whitman Eye Center's organization leaves a lot to be desired.
Professional & knowledgeable. Compassional & Understanding Visit. Thank you. Your patient' Kimchi
Unusually analytical, with a lot of chat and inquisitiveness about my eyes. Very well trained. Explained diagnosis, recommended NO surgery...feature that.
I highly recommend Dr. Hong due to the professional demeanor, perceived knowledge, and friendliness of every individual I encountered in her office.
I chose this doctor because she was an MD. Nowhere in her bio did it say she does not treat people strictly for eye exams for contact lenses. Not until she started the exam did I find out she does not perform this exam. I was then directed to see another doctor. Waited a while because I had no appointment with anyone else.
Great Office staff and Doctor. The wait was long but they were doing everything to keep things moving and make sure each patient was not rushed. The wait was worth it. 02/16/2011 was my appointment date.
