Dr.Houng was the attending physician at the Burn Center. He was comforting and professional. I was not frightened by my injury because his demeanor was so calming.

I had great confidence in Dr. Huang. He had a warm interpersonal presence, which is very important to me. I felt calmer and knew I was in good hands. While quite busy, the care from Dr. Huang was professional and I felt I was in the right place. I’m grateful to be continuing with my recovery there. I’m way less frightened and certainly hopeful! Thumbs up!! Paula Lieberman

Everard Estick in BROOKLYN – Jun 21, 2019
It was my first follow up care contact with Dr. Houng, not enough perhaps for a fair assessment, but, as they say, it’s the first impression that matters. My impressions of Dr. Houng, his interpersonal as well as professional attributes are uniformly positive. Extremely amiable and responsive, Dr. Houng ls perhaps one of the reasons I feel more confident about my ability to overcome my current predicament. Thank you, Dr. Houng and the entire staff for making the atmosphere of the outpatient clinic so hopeful and collaborative.

I thank Dr. Houng and his team of physicians that provided me superior service in treating my recent burn injury at New York Presbyterian Hospital. The entire medical staff including the nurses and aides that assisted me during my stay were very professional and awesome in helping me bare my pain and manage my recovery. The services received from the staff at NY Presbyterian were beyond my expectations. I truly had a good stay and the food was good also. I highly recommend to anyone!!!
