Aside from the previous day of drinking the hideous concoction, Dr Kang and his Issaquah office staff provided the most professional, careful and caring experience for a colonoscopy I have ever experienced. I woke up feeling normal and fully awake, absolutely no discomfort whatsoever. Highly recommend.

Dr. Kang performed 2 colonoscopies on me in the past 10 years, and I highly recommend him for his bedside manner in explaining the procedure as well as for the capability of his staff. My last experience with a different gastroenterologist was not a good one, so I've had the opportunity to contrast my experience with Dr. Kang with others.

This is the best Dr I have been to in my life. Had to have a couple of procedures done. I was taken care of immediately, no waiting, very nice people . both times when I woke up I didn't even know the procedure was done. Completely painless and the aftercare was remarkable. I had a very serious medical condition that the insurance would not pay for the drugs to cure because it was too expensive but Dr Kang and his nurse Kathy fought for me endlessly until the insurance finally gave up an paid
