SHC Patient, Jun 2016

I am not white washing the staff at Stanford. They are entirely sincere and helpful, giving me plenty of time to think through before answering questions.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. Park is a fabulous doctor. He is very kind, caring, and concerned with your issues. I wouldn't want anyone else to be my neurosurgeon.

SHC Patient, May 2016

I like the doctor very much.

SHC Patient, May 2016

I was delighted to meet De. Park. I came to see Dr. Park for a second opinion re my thoracic seven vertebrae fracture. My first experience with a neurosurgeon re my compression fracture was not very satisfying . With the explanation Dr. Park gave me I am confident that Dr. Heit who will be doing the Vertebroplasty in radiology will provide me with an excellent outcome. The wait for Dr Park was worth it. I was also so pleased to hear from Mary Marcellus in radiology yesterday who provided an excellent explaination on the procedure. She spent a long period of time on the phone with me answering all my questions. I greatly appreciate all the time she spent with me. An excellent nurse!

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

I've taken a friend for treatment twice over the years. My wife twice to see Dr. Park & now myself & on the way home we've always talked about the great helpful & friendly courtesy of everyone at Stanford. Thank you.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

He talks to me like a friend, they remember me on what I do, when I am in his office and is talking he... the problems for which I am seeing him as easy... understand words an I remember him calling the _____ I was stay in to see I was all right I cannot say enough good about him as the care I receive.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Park was very attentive, informative and showed an excellent "bedside manner." He asked good questions & was very thorough.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Park was awesome, always very friendly.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

My prayer was Dr. Jon Park would find my back problems AND know how to fix it. It has been answered and I feel a sense of real HOPE and am very thankful to our Lord AND to your fine and caring doctor - Dr. Jongsoo Park.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

I had a hope that Dr. Park would OK me for surgery, he said no with little explanation other than too old.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Would highly recommend Dr. Park and his Assistants to anyone who needs help.

SHC Patient, May 2015

dr. park was very engaging and helpful with accommodating the specifics of my life demands. ideally, he recommended that I be off my back 90% but my work dictates that I be on my feet so he helped me find ways to do that cautiously
