      Dr. Kang is very nice and has a wonderful bedside manner. He showed intrest in my well-being, was inquisitive and very thorough. He performed my very first Colonoscopy and it went smoothly. If you're in the market for a Gastroenterologist, he's your guy!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
