Dr. Lang has communication skills and care for his patient that is remarkable. He takes his time and get every detail and follow up with you. I was in a car accident and he was able to get to the actual problem. I literally thought I was dying due to so much internal discomfort. Today that has all been resolved due to his care and concern. Thank you Dr. Lang for a job well done ????.

Dr. Lang’s diagnostic skills, and bedside manner, make him my go-to when I’m in Houston. His team does what it takes to get me better, and make sure I’m healthy.

Dr. Lang very good dr. My wife and I have been under his care for a few years now. However, please note that the office staff is extremely rude, incompetent, and lazy They just don't understand that their poor patient relation skills affect Dr. lang's and HMC practice for this reason we have chosen to seek a different provider for us, family and friends and anyone I can relate my experience to

My wife had her colonoscopy done in November 2016. To our surprise, Dr. Lang sent the results to an "out of network" lab for review without telling us up front. Despite having insurance, we had to pay several thousands of dollar in lab bills because, again, he sent it to an "out of network" lab. Asked his staff after receiving this huge bill why did they not tell us front, they only said they are sorry. Not going to him anymore.

Dr. Lang and his team are professional, competent and very caring. Not only was the appointment process and followup very well managed, but more importantly, Dr. Lang was extremely generous with his time and attention. He always responded to questions and even followed up with late evening calls at the end of his busy day. He listened and spent whatever time it took to understand my concerns and answer my questions. His kindness and consideration are unusual and very appreciated.

I found Dr. Lang arrogant and lack of empathy. I waited over 2 hours for a 5 minutes consultation with Dr. Lang for a pre-colonoscopy visit. Asked about his charges in case polyps were found, he gave me a comment that I was too money concerned! Curious to know about using swallowed camera for colonoscopy procedure; he raised his voice and told me HE IS THE DOCTOR, HE KNEW what to use. I suppose his theory on patients: don't ask questions and just pay as billed.

Dr. Lang is a very experienced doctor. I have seen him twice in 10 years for routine colonoscopy. He caught my husband's colon cancer. I find Dr. Lang compassionate, patient, willing to work with a patient's schedule. It was always easy to make a convenient appointment and he returns phone calls personally. I have a lot of confidence in him and recommend him to everyone I talk to.
