I love it that I was able to type my concerns in before visit, online, and doctor treated it as a main issue and throughly discussed it with my child.

Dr. Hong-McAtee is very good at meeting me at my level of understanding and thoroughly explaining the why behind her answers to my questions or her suggestions.Even better, my daughter really liked her and found it easier to talk to her than other medical providers we have seen--no small thing at this age.

Dr. Hong-McAtee is an amazing doctor. She genuinely cares about her patients. She takes the time to make notes on their personal lives and asks about those things at every visit. She is amazing and my daughter is lucky to have her as her Endo.

Excellent experience with the doctor. Would highly recommend to others. Bedside manner is very important to us in addition to knowledge and willingness to listen and help. She is the best provider we've had in years.Thank you! (We hope she sees this)

Doctor Irene was a breath of fresh air. She was so friendly, so kind, explained everything regarding our daughter's care in a way that not only we would understand, but also that our daughter herself could understand. It was extremely appreciated and helped our daughter feel more at ease overall.
