I felt that Dr. Ang is both caring and forthcoming. If you don’t want to watch you diet, do the work and exercise then Dr. Ang is not the Dr. for you.

Dr. Ang is my 84-yr old diabetic mother's doctor. On first visit, he seemed hesitant to be her doctor & introduced another colleague to her. Mom decided to stay with Dr. Ang & we are so glad she did! His bedside manner is wonderfully kind & never condescending. He talks to HER, not me & even jokes around a bit, which she enjoys very much. He really has improved her quality of life & helps her to understand her personal health care in a patient & easy way. We highly recommend him!

Dr. Ang is a wonderful doctor. I had my first visit with him today and it was a pleasure to meet him. Dr. Ang was totally prepared for me. He had read my records and knew me on paper and he then took the time to get to know me as a person. Dr. Ang did not rush through my appointment, he answered my questions and I felt totally well taken care of. I wish all doctors cared as much as he does.

I have been a nurse for 18 years and have had and worked with many providers. I have a high expectation which Dr Ang more than exceeded. Not only did he take time to read my history thoroughly and was very knowledgeable he spent ample time to answer all questions and explained in great detail. I could not recommend him enough!

Dr Ang may be knowledgeable about endocrinology, but he is not a caring physician, so it's best to select another Endo if you want care and understanding. Dr Ang refused to see my son after his initial visit because my son has not made a follow up appt. The Rx had expired, and needed a prior approval, but Dr Ang did not provide that. It has been 3 weeks trying to find another Endo in our remote area and we've had to purchase the strips outright, still waiting for the approval. Avoid this one.

Never felt so disrespected by a health care professional! Wouldn't recommend Dr. Ang to my worst enemy.

It's been my experience that the more specialized the physician, the less time they spend with the patient. Not so with Dr. Ang. He asked a lot of questions, he spent time to tell me what he was looking for and ordered a set of labs to further tell my story. My bloodwork revealed a thyroid issue that I didn't know I had! His willingness to work with my primary care doctor is wonderful. I look forward to following up with him and working with him in the future for my good health.

I was just told by Dr. Ang's office to find another provider as he would not "tolerate verbal abuse" from patients. Interesting, as neither do I. His treatment of me in his office was badgering. I found him to be sarcastic and arrogant and I alluded to this in a word I used to describe him to his nurse. I found Dr. Ang to be dismissive and disinterested in me as a patient. His manner was curt and intolerant. He does not come close to meeting my standard of care.
