I have been experiencing back pain for several years this is the first time in a very long time that I am able to do normal things like brush my teeth without having severe back pain!! Dr. Hong and his staff were incredible.

I like Dr Hong's holistic/conservative approach to treating chronic pain. He's very down to earth, caring & compassionate. He has an excellent support staff working under him. Stacie Wharton is fantastic to work with. Dr Hong/Gateway Spine & Pain are excellent at what they do. I'm extremely grateful for their help....

I was referred to Dr Hong after my group left the Hospital. His staff is top notch as well as the facilities. Dr Hong listens and is very knowledgeable, he takes his time to explain your situation and offers a care plan that you can be comfortable with.

First off, I was very pleased that Dr. Hong and his staff were able to get me in for a procedure while I was visiting my family in April. I was impressed with the time Dr. Hong spent with me going over my records thoroughly before performing my procedure.
