There was a mix-up and Dr. Hwang was given someone else's records. The appointment was therefore based on my verbal account of prior test results, etc. Nevertheless, I have confidence that he is, so far, pursuing the proper course. I amdisappointed, however, that his assistant has failed to return my two phone calls to her.
