    Always caring and great withy children. He seems to be able to get them to talk and make sense of their illness.

    Dr. Hom was a little pushy about the flu shot. I usually vaccinate but that is one that I struggle with and he made me feel a little uncomfortable and pushed that I was wrong for not getting the flu shot. (Maybe I am wrong but I don't like being patronized).

    Dr. Hom has been my son's pediatrician since he was a baby. He is not only knowledgeable, but extremely professional. My son has never feared going to the doctors and has express how cool Dr. Hom is.

    Dr. Hom is the best pediatrician. He is experienced and has a wide knowledge base. We are very lucky to have him as our doctor.

    The receptionists are much more friendly and helpful than they used to be. I appreciate that. [...] even tried to help me with cost. I have been loyal to Dr. Hom for 18 years and I appreciate him helping me keep my boys healthy.

    Doctor Hom has been our provider for years. He has seen my boys since they were young. I would recommend him to anyone, I know him. He is pressed for time like any other doctor and I realize that, he does his best with the constraints he has. My issue with the check up that we just had was that I received unclear directions. My son went in for his mission check up. He had to have a TB test. I was told to come in to have it checked in 48-72 hours. Our appointment was Tuesday, [...] at 10:40, I am unsure when the exact TB test was given. We returned to the office on Friday at about 1:30. My son had to have the TB test re-administered because we were 2 hours off. It was not made clear to me that if we did not return at the exact time the test was given we would have to take it again. I didn't even know the time the test was given. It would have been helpful to me if I was told, "return Thursday after 11:30 or BEFORE 11:30 on Friday".It is hard to get off work and school so that would have been helpful.

    Felt like the doctor was rushing and didn't take the time to figure out why my child was in pain. My child is still in pain and I am looking to take him to someone else.

    Our overall experience was excellent. Everyone was kind and respectful. We felt like we were the only patient with the great service.

    Brought two of my kids in for croup and was really concern & didn't feel like my concerns were met. Every time we see this provider we don't feel cared for.

    We head an ongoing medical problem that I have seen multiple providers for. Dr. Hong was the first to actually listen to what I was saying and take it seriously. He gave a diagnosis and treatment plan and hopefully after two years of pain my daughter Can finally have relief. I was incredibly grateful. In the past I've been poo pooed or told that her problem was normal, I had given up hope on getting help and was actually in the office for something else when my daughter brought it up . Dr Hong at first did what they all did and chalked the problem up to hygiene, but then he took a look to be sure and saw that the problem was something else. I was so glad, like I said, I had given up hope on getting help even though I knew it wasn't normal and I was done arguing with doctors about it. I didn't need to argue because doctor Hong looked and was able to recognize the problem immediately even if he couldn't recall the exact name for the condition. I want to start seeing him for all my kids after this experience and drop the provider who (also in your office) refused to take my concerns seriously.
