Dr. Huang is one of the most outstanding doctors I have seen in my life. Caring, intelligent, compassionate and communicative.

June 19, 2019

He listened to me, answered all my questions, and didn't rush me.

June 19, 2019

Dr. Hwang was very thorough. He asked the list of questions to help narrow down why I was seeing him and then began to do an exam to see what he could notice. While my issue could be a number of things, Dr. Hwang explained how an underlying medical condition I have could be adding to the current issue, but is unlikely, so he began to explore the other options and covered all the bases with labs and imaging. As soon as the images were done Dr. Hwang sent me information on myupmc stating he did not see anything that could stand out, so we would wait for the labs. I never had a doctor reply so quickly and want to help get to the bottom of what is going on. As a side note he made some light jokes while we were going over information, which was much appreciated since that made it clear he was able to take a step back and see me as a person instead of a medical condition or number. I wish all doctors were like Dr. Hwang with their personality and ability to relate to patients, while breaking down the information so that I could follow easily.

June 18, 2019

I could not be happier with Dr. Whang and his nurse Ray. I will be following him to Monroeville to continue seeing him. I am more than willing to drive the 3 to 4 hours it will take.

June 06, 2019

Dr. Hwang is very compassionate and listens to all my questions. He explained all my concerns.

May 30, 2019

Good.

May 21, 2019

Excellent, He looks beyond the disease process and looks at the person as a whole

May 15, 2019

This was my first visit with Dr. Hwang, and he was very compassionate and informative.

May 14, 2019

Dr. Hwang was patient and has a kind demeanor. I felt as though he really listened to my concerns and took them seriously. He scheduled a follow up appointment for me during lunch, on his own time, so that I would not have to wait an inordinate amount of time to be seen again.

May 09, 2019

Dr. hwang listened and was very helpful.
