I'm very happy with Dr. Hong.

Dr. Hong was on it!!i was very impressed with her. She did her homework and knew my history from A-Z. She put things in ways I could understand. I was very pleased with the visit and entrusting her with my care. thank you Dr Hong!!!
My provider made me feel comfortable and confident that she is knowledgeable. She treated me like a person and not another number. I was amazed that she or her covering provider would be available 24/7. Thank you!
I felt extremely dismissed by Jison Hong. She noted my symptoms but about halfway through it felt as if she stopped listening. She begrudgingly looked at photos of physical symptoms and quickly concluded that my positive test results were false positives. She did not ask questions regarding my symptoms and did not dig deeper about what I experience. She warmed up towards the end of the appointment while explaining bloodwork and did take the time to order more labs. The i formation in the after visit summary I received felt different from what I was told in the appointment. During the appointment I was told that a specific illness was highly unlikely, yet the after visit summary stated it was a possibility. I felt that this doctor automatically decided that I did not have the specific illness that two other doctors suspected I had due to her experience with previous patients and quickly found evidence to support her opinion rather than being open minded about my specific symptoms and experiences. I appreciate that she warmed up towards the end of the app and that she referred me to another doctor for more testing.
dr hong was phenomenal. very knowledgeable, listened well, wa attentive, and explained everything in easy to understand terms. very professional.
She is "great" always takes her time - She cares about you, your needs - Awesome.

Dr. Hong is always on top of everything.
Dr. Fairchild was primarily involved & is excellent!! Dr. Hong came in at end and is also an outstanding provider! Thank you.
No explanation of what problems could be or what to do next. Did not appear to listen to symptoms that were troubling to me.
Dr. J Hong was very kind.
Dr. Hong is one of the most concerning and complete doctors i have to care for me. Also Dr. Fresco.. Very complete cks everything. actually most of the doctors at stanford are always all caring. They treat you like they care about you. But i came from Kaiser and that place is always in a hurry and i don't know if they have time to care. it is a ok place as long you don't get sick.
Dr Hong is a incredible doctor and I completely trust her recommendations. She really helped me and have hope that thanks to her listening and knowledge I will get better. I wish all patients had access to doctors like her.
Dr. Jison Hong is awesome. I just love her.
I appreciated Dr. Hong forth right manner. She diagnosed my problem was honest, and didn't pretend I would magically recover.
I really like this doctor cheese very professional she really shows that she cares about her patients and has a genuine interest in helping them Chancer all of my questions listen to all of my concerns explained everything ask for my opinion as to what I thought about what you were suggesting in terms of what medications to take or not to take and explained everything completely and I have no issues with her she's very good
I was seen by Jison Hong MD. She was very confident; and friendly. She spent with me more than 15 minutes. She described everything with words that I could understand.
sensitive to my good response to medication controlling back pain and how to analyze its side affects, if any.
Dr. Hong was so amazing in every aspect. I have complete confidence in her and she is the only doctor I have seen that has given me hope that she will find out what is making me so sick. Wonderful dr.
I felt that the care provider did not explain the connection of my diagnosis in her office to the current idiopathic condition of my ongoing ailment. She gave me no hope of recovery or therapy. A second appointment in 3 mos. seems senseless.
Love Dr.Hong
Dr. Hong went over my medical issues thoroughly and answered all my questions
getting information out of this provider was like pulling teeth.
Dr Hong is wonderful
Dr. Hong never rushes me and always takes the time to talk in-depth with me regarding my concerns.
When the doctor entered the room, she seemed impatient and gave me a quick explanation re what was happening with me. It seemed to me that it took several minutes for her to warm up and speak to me as a person rather than the next task she was completing. Once we were able to communicate better, the appointment went well.
Very good.
Excellent. Care provider showed extra attention to what I needed.
Jison Hong, was very rude. She seemed upset about my visit. There was no sensitivity. I had high hopes about being treated at Stanford.
Dr Jison Hong is excellent.
I feel I will finally get the medical help I need. She is SO SMART!!
Dr. Hong is a great doctor. I have referred several people to the Stanford Medical Clinic.

My experience was very pleasant
Dr Hong did not ask questions about my health relating to my resent health history and what contributing factors were in play to make the decision to increase my prednisone. She was very angry with my PCP for increasing the dosage. Her anger was very unprofessional. She upset me to the point that I could discuss other issues.
