    Dr. Tang has done replacement surgery on both the left Hip and left shoulder, the results have been outstanding. I would rate him right up there with the very best surgeons in Pasadena and it was a real pleasure to have him as my doctor.
    in Glendale, CA |
    My experience with Dr. Tang and his staff was really bad. Surgery went wrong; seems like they do not realize that they are dealing with people. His late to his appointments and demonstrated no feelings for my pain and frustration after he told me that I will need another surgery.

    fantastic experience with dr tang at huntington hospital broke my arm and his professionalism and expertise really shined
    in Pasadena, ca |
    Surprised at the reviews! I love Dr Tang, and his assistants are always helpful. Had to have knee surge46, everything went well. I think maybe the follow ups should be a bit more thorough, but nothing bad to say about Dr. Tang!
    Pasadena, CA |
    Dr Tang is always late. I was his first patient of the day for surgery and he was almost an hour late. I make a point of being his first appointment either of the day or after lunch and he is invariably about 30 minutes behind. Based on my experience, he is technically a great surgeon but he needs to provide his patients with: A friendly staff that is able to pretend to be even slightly interested in the patient, something beyond a third-world waiting room, wifi, etc.
    in Glendale, CA |
    His office is cold and indifferent. His assistant Monica is the worst. Well, her assistant Angela might be a little worse. Don't bother asking when your surgery is, hoping to make arrangements ahead of time when they'll make you wait weeks. And they don't care. My car gets better treatment. Don't these people realize they're dealing with people who are going to have surgery? Have their bones drilled and screws put in? What is this place? and the office manager, Joe, is no help.
