He didn't even sit down during the appointment. Spent less than 5 minutes with me. Worst doctor that I've ever seen. Never ran scans. Another neurologist found a brain aneurysm.

His office staff are lazy when filling out prior auth often filling them out incomplete resulting in insurance denial. His staff is HORRIBLE with following up with patients regarding pretty much everything, you have to BEG to get anything accomplished there and it takes months to get them to work with insurance to get treatments approved yet tell the patients its ALL the insurances fault but when you call insurance its a different story and Dr Kang basically calls you a liar! Horrible experience

This Dr does not speak or understand English very well and has a very difficult time communicating his expertise. His front staff is rude and talk about you behind your back and think you don't hear them. Dr Kang will not reprimand them. If a treatment fails, it's because it's your body not what he ordered. His PA should take over the practice. She treats the patients and explains much better than he. Awards mean nothing if you are rude and Kurt to your patients. He is not available 4 emergency

Dr. Kang gets it! My prayers were answered. Spent 40 minutes explaining things to me and going over my different options, the pros & cons of each. DENT had failed me; I thought I had no alternatives. Dent refused to deviate from the only Botox injection approach they use, paradigm even though the research indicates under certain circumstances changes should be made. You don't need to accept the standard paradigm! Dr Kang brings so much more to migraine treatment than what Dent does & he cares

I was a transfer patient to the practice and asked that the doctor review my chart in advance of appointment. He did and was able to discuss all options with me. Im excited to be a part of this new practice.
