Special Interests

As a primary care physician, I value the continuity in patient care. I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to build a long-lasting relationship with my patients, and to be in a position to make a positive difference in their lives. I appreciate the difference my patients have made in my life. It is a gratifying and rewarding experience to get to know so many people, to hear their amazing stories, and to be part of their life journey.

Medicine is an ever-changing science. This is a hopeful and exciting time in the field of medicine with cutting-edge techniques, innovative medications and improved outcomes. I have a strong background combining clinical practice, medical research and biostatistics. With my unique background, I strive to keep myself up to date on the latest development in medicine so that I can better serve our patients' needs.

I believe in a team approach and consider myself part of a team with my patients. I love to take the time to listen to my patients’ needs and concerns, to help them fully understand their medical condition and to enable them to make informed decisions that work the best for them. Together as a team, we will ensure our patients receive the best care they deserve.

I felt she was very thorough and caring
  Overall Patient Rating - October 2020
The appt was to establish care & "get to know" the doctor did not show or want to "get to know" me at all! She was in a rush leaving the room. She did not ask ANY questions! But briefly answered my questions about my lab tests from a previous appointment.

Dr. Hong Ren is amazing!!!
  Overall Patient Rating - August 2020
Bad communication overall - unwilling to address all of my reasons for visit for some reason - maybe lack of time? I've never been told by a doctor that I can only talk about 1-2 concerns, but this was communicated to me by nurse & *Dr. Ren.
  Overall Patient Rating - August 2020
It would be nice to have more time to visit with the doctor.
  Overall Patient Rating - August 2020
*Dr. Ren gives good advice as my primary care provider.
  Overall Patient Rating - July 2020
I just started seeing *Dr. Rem this year and I am very pleased with the care I have received.

I had to change doctors when Dr Palermo left. I was assigned to Dr Ren and I couldn't be happier
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2020
I thought Dr. Ren was great.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2020
This was my first visit with Dr Ren. I felt my office visit was very good. She was very attentive to my concerns and questions.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2020
Dr Ren has been excellent in caring for my health.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2020
She did not ask many questions and quickly made assumptions about my lifestyle. I felt like I had to go on the offensive to even tell her anything about myself on this first-time visit. She tried to leave very quickly without asking for my further concerns that brought me in.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2020
First, she was 26 minutes late to the call. Then the visit felt rushed, and she did most of the talking, very fast. I did not feel she listened to my concerns, and made up her mind about the diagnosis and treatment. No results so far. No check back.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2020
after being 30min late, which I understand can happen, she spent 10 min in the room and asked me to make another appointment to discuss a new problem Was a little taken aback
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2020
will never visit this dr again. rude and hurried. no personal tact.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2020
Dr. Rhen was very good at listening and giving straight forward answers to questions. I feel secure with her because she involves me in making decisions.

SHE IS AN EXCELENT CARE DOCTOR AND I WILL RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE. GOD BLESS HER
  Overall Patient Rating - May 2020
All good.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2020
I like her and do believe she cares about her patients but she is given way too many appts. with not enough time to delegate to patients care making it impossible to deal with concerns/issues.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2020
*Dr. Hong Ren followed up w/prescriptions, 2 referrals, and a phone call/lab results and to see if I had followed through w/referrals.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2020
Dr. Ren provides exceptional patient care and advice. I really appreciate having Dr. Ren as my PCP. Thank you, Dr. Ren.

great caring physician
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2020
Dr. Ren did not recommend the digital prostate exam or the PSA. This seems to be the medical profession's standard approach today. I told her that I suspected my prostate may be enlarged due to, at times, a slow stream while urinating. She was still reluctant and tried to dissuade me from that option. When I explained my reasoning behind my desire to have the digital prostate exam, she cut me off in mid sentence, clearly frustrated, did not want to hear what I had to say and abruptly left the room, stating she would be right back.

I came away with a very good understanding of my problem and how to get better
