Review of Dr. Huang

-

My review of Dr Huang is unfortunately not good. I had a cervical disc replacement done by another surgeon. It was a total failure and had to be removed. Then another surgery to remove it and a two level fusion done. I had no bone growth and the hardware was failing. Two loose screws that were backing out. I had consultations with two other surgeons who told me I needed posterior surgery immediately to stabilize my cervical spine. Dr. Huang told me “I’ll operate on you if you want me to”, and told me I could stay the way I was. Which made me totally lose confidence and trust that he actually cares about trying g to help/fix me. I have since had the surgery with another surgeon and I’m doing really well. With out this last procedure I was at high risk for a number of awful things that could have happened. I originally had high hopes that Dr. Huang would be the surgeon I would choose, but he came across arrogant/non caring. He’s probably a great surgeon but glad I went elsewhere.

I had excruciating leg pain due to a herniated disc. I went to a few Doctors before deciding on Dr. Huang. It's now been five years since Dr. Huang performed my surgery and I can't be happier with the results. I am and have been pain free since the moment I woke up in recovery at HSS.

I went to see Dr. Huang with my dad. My dad needs surgery for his back. I have never seen an doctor answer so many questions in my life. He was not at all dismissive and explained the procedure to my dad maybe 5 times. Although my dad was seen in the clinic it was still worth it. The only negative I would say is the waiting time as he sees patients only once a month in the clinic. Otherwise he is an amazing and gives a lot of respect to his patients.

Last week, as I was walking down the street, I saw Dr. Huang; this brought back feelings of disgust. I remember my appointment with him a couple years ago and how it was the worst experience I've had with any doctor. When I told Dr. Huang that I was in unbearable pain to the point where I wanted to die, he was extremely dismissive and obnoxious. What made the situation worse was that he was training a man and still showed no professionalism or concern. I wish I hadn't wasted my time and money.

I had my 6th back surgery with Dr.Huang. I've seen quite a few doctors prior to him. That was my biggest mistake. Dr Huang explained to me what was about to happen. He truly put my mind at ease. I am so grateful for him his colleges & his staff. As long as I'm able to be treated by him he will continue to be my surgeon. If there were more space I'd type so many more comments about him. I can't say enough good things. Dr. Huang is an exceptional surgeon & again I'm extremely grateful

Excellent Dr. Performed spinal fusion on my 12 year old daughter, and from the time she was diagnosed till after the surgery he was there every step of the way. I would not recommend anyone else.

Review of Dr. Huang

- in New York, NY |

I had an L5-S1 microdiscectomy. RH came highly recommended from the Director of Pain Management at HSS (substantiating his professional stature/competency better than I ever could). I did *not* feel pressured into surgery. After his rec for a conservative failed, he patiently and thoroughly explained his rationale for why he thought this was my best option (he was right). Postop, responsiveness and availability exceeded expectations. RH clearly cares deeply for his patients before/after surgery.
