"I have had crohn's for 15 years, I have seen other GI doctors and even went to the University of Chicago. it wasn't until I changed doctors to Dr. Song that I completely understood what was happening to me. From day 1 he took his time to make sure I knew what was happening with this disease. I had a problem with an outstanding balance I was unaware of and I couldn't get my treatment. once we figured out what I needed to do I was able to start the treatment again. Dr Song went above and beyond to help me get back on the medicine. I appreciate everything he has done for me. He is a great doctor, I wish I would have seen him years ago. he truly cares about his patients."

"I had a good experience overall with the care provider. Only thing I would suggest is that the Care provider should call in with final results to ensure that any questions the patient has are answered. Posting a detailed analysis of the results is a good tool but talking to the patient can help eliminate any questions they may have. Plus, it shows that you care for the patients and his/her concerns."
