About 2.5 years ago I switched from Dr. Aristotle Mendiola in San Francisco to Dr. Kwon. I found Dr. Mendiola to be a very good doctor, but had a lot of trouble with his front office staff as far as returning calls, getting PXs in on time and the like.
Dr. Kwon's office is more responsive, although over the last couple of months (Nov-Dec 2014), they seem to have been backed up a bit. Dr. Kwon is great in that she gives you all the options and, if you are uncomfortable with any one recommended, she will work with you on other options. For example, 2014 has been rough on me symptom-wise - diet, Asacol, Hydrocortisone and Prednisone aren't helping get my flares under complete control. We've discussed the immune-suppresant options, but I'm still wavering on those because of the side effects. She's been great in being supportive of the tack I'm comfortable with taking.
Sometimes, if you call in, you may not get a same day response, but she also provides for email correspondence and when you do get a response or when you have an office visit, she is very thorough and will answer any and all questions you have thoughtfully.
