I have appreciated that fact that Dr. Kwak knows me well enough to know that sinus infections are serious with me.

Dr Kwak is outstanding. She is kind, warm, and shows genuine concern for your well being. She takes her time and never makes you feel as if she is rushing to get to the next patient. You have her full attention.

Dr. Kwak is amazing. She always goes above and beyond.
No Rating Given
Dr. Kwak always spends a good amount of time listening to everything I have to say, explaining diagnoses and treatment options and helping me to pick the best treatment for myself. She is never pushy or impatient even when I am nervous about certain treatment/tests, and allows me to make informed decisions with the freedom to choose on my own, unlike other doctors I have seen in the past who treat me as a diagnosis rather than an individual person. I also feel like I am not just listened to, but really heard, every time I explain something I am dealing with.
