Patient Comments (2)
in 130 Northern Parkway Riverhead New York |
DR Lana Kang is an amazing surgeon who listens to the complaints of her patients. She is the best skilled surgeon that I have ever met. I broke my wrist in a bike accident 4 years ago and Dr. Kang performed two surgeries and both were a great success. I am able to do more of the activities I love. Her demeanor and kind ways make her a very special doctor. I would never use another Dr for hand surgery but Dr. Kang. Her office staff is kind amazing and extremely courteous.

I had broken my elbow and she did the surgery to put me back together. I had complications as my bones were osteopenic. She determined the necessary hardware I needed and completed the surgery. Today, I have full use of my arm. Dr. Kang, the HSS nurses and pain management doctors dealt with my needs professionally and kindly. Absolutely tops!
