Specialties

Dr. Soon H Kwon has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

    An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
    Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.

I'm not looking for soft skin

Dr. Kwon checks for specific things geared towards the labs... Blood tests show a lot more than people think. The appointments are far out but he's eager to adjust the dosages and offer options.... I discuss things with him as he stick to what he specialize in... Some. Have told me to run, because he love removing thyroids, well seems he is about curing the problem not just symptoms. I just want to be back to normal..

Just read your own test results. He does not care or have any interest in anything else and does not care about any symptoms

Dr. Kwon

Don't waist your time being seen with this Dr. He was very blunt and had aweful bedside manner! I walked out in tears because I was told to go to a gym for some weight I've gained from being hypothyroid. Staff was very nice but this by far was the worst experience in my life. I'll never drive 45 minutes for someone to tell me to work out.

This doctor knows his stuff

I have had thyroid issues for a while, and other endocrinologists and doctors didn't care to treat me. Dr.Kwon knows his stuff. He isn't the warm and fuzzy kind of guy, but he will treat and diagnose you if you have a problem. He is thorough and explains everything. I was expecting to be treated like crap because of my prior experiences, including many with doctors and Duke, but unlike my other doctors he cared and knows what he is doing. I may have a pituitary tumor and all the high and mighty staff at Duke refused to admit anything was wrong with me while using the same labs as Dr. Kwon. He is a life saver. I don't get why people are giving him bad reviews because of his nurses or because he looks at labs. Hello! That's what doctors are supposed to do!
