Patient Reviews (4)
in Rockville, MD |
Dr. Paul Kang is excellent in all respects. He is very professional and has a fine bedside manner. I was very impressed with the office and surgery facilities and the staff at both locations. There was no waiting time even though there were many patients being serviced. Everything was explained in detail and in easy to understand terms. The scheduling was remarkable to say the least. Lastly, the results of my cataract surgery are terrific . I could not be happier with the experience.
in Mc Lean, VA |
Dr. Kang is a fine physician. Professional, reassuring, excellent physical and mental acuity and a very fine surgeon. Cataract surgery for me was frankly, scary and thoughtful. I had an outstanding experience with excellent results thanks to Dr. Kang and the terrific healthcare professionals in his McLean, VA office and Bethesda, MD, surgery center. Ted Peterson

Dr. Kang clearly explained my vision issues, answered my questions thoroughly, and made me feel valued as a person, not a number on a chart.
in Falls Church, VA |
The cataract surgeries by Dr Paul Kang went great. My right eye improved far more than my retinal specialist indicated. My right eye improved from 20/400 (corrected) to 20/40 (uncorrected). Although I was extremely nearsighted, there were no complications.
