From the front desk staff, to the intake nurses and my doctor, I am very happy with the care I receive. My only issue is distance and travel in the winter. Sometimes I need to cancel my appointment. I have recommended this office to a few people.

Dr. Hwong cares about his patients. He treats us with respect and kindness. He listens and believes us when we tell him about our life's experiences. He greets us with a smile and with empathy. Dr. Hwong will go the distance for his patients even when there is no easy or obvious answer. He is an asset to UPMC. We are lucky to have him!

My visit was wonderful. I came for a second opinion and I received more attention than I could have ever imagined. Dr. Hwang eased my mind and sent me home with reading material. I am still overwhelmed with this appointment.
