Patient Reviews

  • I used to avoid doctors for much of my early adult life out of fear of not being listened to or brushed off. I have never felt that way at either UCF Health location with any of the amazing doctors or staff. Cynthia is my newest provider after my previous doctor moved and she is absolutely fantastic. She listens to every concern I have, asks plenty of her own questions, and offers me different testing options depending on how far I want to investigate the issue. Thanks for everything, Cynthia!

    I have to express my gratitude to Cynthia Hongamen. On Sunday I felt a pain on the tip of my knee consistent with how a pimple feels. I squeezed thinking that all I had to do was 'pop it out'. Monday my knee was swollen, and I was thinking I just needed to 'squeeze some more'. Tuesday the sides and the back of my knee joint became stiff and tender. I knew I was in trouble and if not treated the infection could spread. It was obviously spreading already so I needed medical help ASAP. When I called UCF Health they had me come in and put me with Cynthia. She immediately acknowledged this was an abscess on my knee, but upon further examination decided against cutting it open to drain it. I personally did not agree and was hoping for immediate relief by having her open where I was squeezing and draining it all out. She prescribed Keflex and told me to follow the directions.

    I went home worried thinking “why didn’t she just drain my knee?” “What if there is a lot of pus in there still?” I had a lot of ‘what ifs’ running through my mind, but I wanted to respect Cynthia’s diagnosis and followed through. Tuesday night before I went to bed, I felt miserable and was actually running a slight fever of 100.2. Part of me was freaking out, but I said to myself: “I have to give the Keflex a chance” and went to sleep. Fast forward to this morning, I woke up alas, NO FEVER. My knee’s swelling has gone down significantly, and the pain is almost gone. From the way felt last night until today is NIGHT and DAY! Cynthia Hongamen is the BEST!!! THANK YOU CYNTHIA!

    Cynthia is a great practioner. She gave me some simple advice about a vitamin supplement that has prevented a condition from coming back. She is outstanding.
