  Overall Patient Rating - June 2020
Dr. Hwang saw an anomaly in my blood work not related to my heart and informed my primary care Doctor so they could follow up. I feel he is looking out for my total health care, I'm very pleased!
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2020
*Dr. Hwang has always given me very good care. He listens carefully to my questions and explain things well. He always seems to review my record before each check-up.
  Overall Patient Rating - May 2020
Dr. Hwang could not be more caring. He explained everything in detail, and in language that was easy to understand. He was very helpful in his suggestions. He had recommended Cardiac Rehab to me in January. This included not only exercise, but also diet recommendations. Since that time, I have made lifestyle changes which resulted in a weight loss of 20 pounds.

*Dr. Wayne Hwang saved my life 3 years ago. He and his staff continue to demonstrate the highest level of professionalism regarding my ongoing care. I feel fortunate that he is my cardiologist, and highly recommend him to others.
  Overall Patient Rating - September 2019
Dr. Hwang takes the time to explain, in layman's terms, what my results showed and what he thought would be the best course moving forward. I trust him to carry on the same excellent care I received from Dr. Holmes before he retired.

I'm happy to have him as my cardiologist & lucky to have him!

I have confidence in this doctor. I feel he carefully reviewed my file before meeting me, spent all the time I needed to answer questions and demonstrated a sincere interest in my health and well-being. He promptly provided reports to me and to my primary-care physician.
