After reviewing my MRI Dr. Langer came into the room explained what he say and told me what needed to be done with the right knee. I actually told him to stop lying and he went out the room to his computer pulled up my MRI and asked me to come take a look and he explained the MRI to me and brought me back in the room and ask me if I had any questions of course I did and he answered for. When he was finished he left the room and then his assistant went over more details about the surgery.Excelle

I only dealt with Dr. Langer on one occasion; he diagnosed my problem quickly after viewing my MRI and x-rays. He recommended surgery but his staff was so inept that the surgery was never booked. Only after I called them twice about the preauthorization from insurance did I learn that they did not accept Medicare; that is my secondary insurance and unless I can use it I cannot have surgery. Now I cannot get anyone to return my calls. This info was on my original paperwork!!

Dr Langer performed a surgery on me that he wasn't qualified to perform. He was unprofessional and refused to answer any questions or concerns about my pain weeks later. I would not recommend him to any friends/family.

Dr. Langer has always provided professional advice and treatment, he truly makes his patients feel VIP, he makes sure he can provide the best treatment and follows up on treatment diagnosed to make sure it is having positive affects.
Dr Langer performed surgery on my hip. When I went back, he was no longer there and had disappeared. Went to three other doctors, and it was confirmed that he performed surgery wrongfully on me. Took out the wrong place of my femur and never fixed my labrum (the reason I went to surgery). He cut my IT band and my ilosoias and there was no indication to. I do not recommend this person to my worst enemy nor the worst human beings on earth.

Dr. Langer diagnosed me with FAI and performed hip arthroscopy. After surgery I was in debilitating pain and unable to walk. Six months later I had to have a total hip replacement. Two surgeons have since reviewed my records and confirmed I never had FAI, Langer shaved my femur in the wrong place and released muscles that should have never been touched. I have met five former patients of his who have had the same issues. Shortly after my surgery Dr. Langer disappeared and the practice went
