Dr. Hwang is a caring, compassionate, and very knowledgeable Doctor. He has helped me to control my Lupus symptoms. He is always concerned about my overall health. I am so pleased that I was able to find him.

January 11, 2018

Dr. Hwang is an excellent doctor and I would (and have) recommend/ed him to others. He is thorough, open, communicative and compassionate and answers all of my questions honestly and in a way that I can understand without feeling the need to 'dumb it down'. He treats me as though I am a capable, intelligent partner in my own health. I haven't had this level of care since I left the San Francisco Bay area. I wish that all of my health care providers were like him.

January 11, 2018

Dr Hwang is very knowledgable and informative. He was very attentive to my questions and concerns, and allotted me the needed appointment time. I am very happy that I was referred to this specialist, and will be more than glad to remain under his care.
