Dr. Michael Stang is a truly dedicated and caring surgeon. I had a thyroid surgery in June of 2016. I am so impressive on his consulting sessions before the surgery: he answered all my questions and explained in very easily understandable details about the thyroid disease and the procedures of the surgery. This helped relieve my stress before the surgery. I had such a successful surgery, and the thyroid function level is normal after the surgery. I did not use any pain medicine after the surgery
