"I travel over an hour from NY to NJ to see Dr. Chon. He is the best physician I have ever had (and I have been to a lot of doctors as I tend to switch practices readily). He makes sure you understands the importance of procedures/follow with concern and information. I wish I could clone him and use him for other specialties (primary care, GI, dermatology). He is is a gem and we have sent several patients his way (unfortunately one was diagnosed with thyroid cancer - but he was luck to have found it)."
