I would recommend him to my friends. He is very considerate, knowledgeable, meticulous, and punctual. Dr. Hong pretty much possesses all excellent qualities as a great doctor. He listens very patiently and explains everything thoroughly.He also followed up with my case more than once after the procedure and made sure that everything was fine. He's very personable yet, the most professional doctor I've ever dealt with.

Can't comment on Dr. Hong because upon arrival I was advised that he does not take my insurance. His partner, Dr. Sanjay Jobanputra, does so I saw him.

Dr. David Hong was absolutely fantastic. I was so pleased that I made an appointment to see him. He spent almost 45 minutes talking to me about my possible health problems and what course of treatment can be taken. He didnot talk to me as a patient, but rather he treated and talked to me as if I was one of his family members. I was also impressed of how knowledgeable he was. If you are not sure whether or not to make an appointment with Dr. Hong do not hesitate. I am very happy that I got the chance to meet him and I look forward to seeing him again in the future. Hes a wonderful doctor.

BEST doctor by far..I've been to many other doctors, some with high positions that pretend to know what theyre doing, or perform a couple of unecessary unrelated tests, rushing you out after...however, Dr. Hong actually took the time to explainto me step by step by visuals of my situation before performing any tests..wait time was less than a minute and staff was AWESOME.
