This young man came off as arrogant and insecure and immediately wanted to go to a medical procedure without asking anything about my history or having my records or discussing possible causes and alternatives. I will find a different more maturedoctor who realizes he is not there to dominate the patient but to listen and advise.

Dr. Hong has broken off with his former partners and is now on his own. Some of his staff and (hopefully) many of his patients have gone with him as he starts up his new practice. It couldn't be better!

This was my first visit. He was very professional and knowledgeable. His "beside-manner" was nothing short of excellent. I had left another urologist because, unlike Dr. Hong, he was uninterested in my well-being. Bottom line. So, far. . . he's great!

He was great. I heard the procedure was far less painful, but that may have been because many men don't want to admit feeling pain. He offered to stop and finish again another time when he saw how much pain Iwas in. I opted to finish the procedure as I felt it was necessary...and of course didn't want to go through it again. So the doctor was fine, I just didn't expect the procedure to be how it was. It's much different from an injury like a break or dislocation, when I normally just apply heat or ice and see a doctor if pain persists...but I've also never undergone any medical procedure other than dental fillings while being fully awake, so that is probably a big part of why it was so unusual for me.

Had a referral to see AZ State Urology on May 9th to look into testosterone treatment. Saw Dr. Hong and was impressed with his professionalism and we decided to try the testosterone pellet delivery method, scheduled for May 23rd. On theway out I requested that the office check my benefits to give me an idea of what I'd be out of pocket, especially since I would be needing treatment every 4-6 months for essentially the rest of my life. I waited a week or so and heard nothing. I called the office to see if they'd found out anything and was told they would look into it and call me back. I called agian the day before my appointment and they still didn't have an answer and was not able to give me an estimate. I decided to call my insurance myself and the person told me I would need a procedure code. I called AZ State Urology back and luckily I got the office manager, Ernestina on the phone and explained my situation. She was very understanding and extremely helpful and I was finally given an estimate along with the procedure code. Called the insurance company back and found that this specific treatment was out of my affordability due to price and deductible amount. I called AZ State Urology back to change my appointment from a procedure to getting the injections. Went in and was given a script to pickup the injections and was told I'd have to come back two weeks later for a nurse visit to administer the injections and show me how to properly do it myself in the future. I understand that they need to show me first before they give me a bunch of stuff but my frustration is they had plenty of time to give me an estimate and I ended up doing it myself in 30 minutes the day before my appointment. I believe that had they been proactive initially, I could have found out that the pellet treatment was too expensive, they could have prescribed my injections and had me in on the 23rd to have a nurse visit for the injection training. Since they weren't, I had an appointment virtually to hand me a script that I'd have to fill out and come back in two weeks causing me and extra appointment and more lost time at work. My problem isn't with the Doc himself but with their system and lack of communication especially when I am taking off of work. I declined their treatment all together and will find a practice that is more proactive and that isn't nonchalant about causing extra visits and spending my money.

Dr. Hong is wonderful, kind, compassionate and so knowledgeable! We feel he saved my husband's life by operating on a very aggressive prostate cancer. He always takes all of the time you need to explain everything and answers all of your questions!
