I am very pleased with the health care I am receiving from Dr. Hwang. He is working with me to find the correct medication for me. He is very patient in explaining my options and he is genuinely concerned about my overall health.

OK- but seemed a little rushed

June 08, 2016

It was so refreshing to be seen by a doctor who actually read my history. Dr Yong Gil is so knowledgeable in his field. He was able to tell thing about my health before i even said a word. This man could tell so much about me just by looking at my physic. Amazing Doctor, I know he will be able to help me.

I see many doctors and Dr. Hwang is definitely the most attentive, knowledgable, listens, goes the extra million miles to help his patients. His staff works well together and together with the dr creates a perfect team. They are quick with responses, listen, scheduling needs, refills etc. They are all an asset to his team.
