Patient Reviews
Nov 07, 2023
Dr. Kwak performed proximal hamstring tendon repair back in July. I didn't spend much time researching different surgeons as time was of the essence. Luckily, Dr. Kwak couldn't have been a better choice. He's got that rare combination of precision and personality. I had an abnormally bad version of this injury, and yet recovery seems to have surpassed everything I've read online. Very little pain and excellent outcome 3.5 months post op. I couldn't be more grateful. Special props to his excellent staff as well. His coordinator Angie is incredibly responsive and caring. I'm lucky.
