All the people here must have seen a different Doctor than I did. He cut me off perhaps once when I started to ramble a bit , but rightfully so. He couldn't have been more professional and to the point with a good sense of humor.. Very friendly bedside manner. I had an MRI done and he presented my options to me. I would not hesitate to go to him again should I choose the option of surgery. I feel he's been u fairly maligned here.. IM 63 and I've been to a LOT of doctors. Dr. Kwon is tops in my book--Signed, satisfied from Brooklyn.

He repaired both of my shoulders (removed bone spurs, cut away frayed labrum, reattached labrum to bone with anchors) 1-2 years apart. The first surgery was uneventful and he was cordial before surgery, then indifferent at follow up, but everything went well. Second one he was late/rushed for consult and made a really stupid remark right before I was taken in to surgery. I woke up at some point to hear him yelling at whoever was working on or just closing up my shoulder. The nurse told them I was awake and they gave me a sedative. He was a real jerk at post op, didn't care about my pain at followup, nor what the physical therapist was saying, nor care what a post-op MRI report said. I suffered for a year until things finally got better. All of that said... 6-7 years later I am happy with both of my shoulders. I have 100% mobility in one and zero pain in the first. The other zings me once in a while but has great mobility. Both are like brand new compared to what I had. I think he is a good surgeon but I'm not sure if I would choose him again.

Dr. Kwon spent a total of 5 minutes for both my visits. He never bothered to look at my X-rays on the initial visit. On the second visit he made this statement "I don't care" when referring to whether I chose an injection for my pain. I think I understand Dr. Kwon's meaning, but one shouldn't say that to their patient. Couldn't you try to care just a little? After the second visit my motivation for getting better was so I wouldn't have to return to him.

This doctor is very uncaring, has TERRIBLE bedside manners, cold hearted, let me suffer physically as well as emotionally. I will never ever recommends him to anybody, and wish I new it about him before I choose him as my surgeon.
