Las Vegas, NV |
Last week, as I was walking down the street, I saw Dr. Huang; this brought back feelings of disgust. I remember my appointment with him a couple years ago and how it was the worst experience I've had with any doctor. When I told Dr. Huang that I was in unbearable pain to the point where I wanted to die, he was extremely dismissive and obnoxious. What made the situation worse was that he was training a man and still showed no professionalism or concern. I wish I hadn't wasted my time and money.

I had my 6th back surgery with Dr.Huang. I've seen quite a few doctors prior to him. That was my biggest mistake. Dr Huang explained to me what was about to happen. He truly put my mind at ease. I am so grateful for him his colleges & his staff. As long as I'm able to be treated by him he will continue to be my surgeon. If there were more space I'd type so many more comments about him. I can't say enough good things. Dr. Huang is an exceptional surgeon & again I'm extremely grateful

Good doctor
Excellent Dr. Performed spinal fusion on my 12 year old daughter, and from the time she was diagnosed till after the surgery he was there every step of the way. I would not recommend anyone else.
Still suffering

I had an L5-S1 microdiscectomy. RH came highly recommended from the Director of Pain Management at HSS (substantiating his professional stature/competency better than I ever could). I did *not* feel pressured into surgery. After his rec for a conservative failed, he patiently and thoroughly explained his rationale for why he thought this was my best option (he was right). Postop, responsiveness and availability exceeded expectations. RH clearly cares deeply for his patients before/after surgery.

My experience at Dr. Huang's office was excellent. He explained all procedures, was available via text messaging which made both pre and post op easier. Surgery went very well! Many thanks to Dr. Huang.

DR HUANG SAVED MY LIFE AND GAVE ME BACK THE QUALITY OF LIFE THAT I HAD BEFORE MY ACCIDENT.WHEN I FIRST MET HIM I KNEW I WOULD BE OK. I THINK THAT HE IS THE MOST CARING AND TALENTED SURGEON AND MAN IN THIS WORLD. THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH WORDS TO THANK HIM FOR ALL HE HAS DONE FOR ME.
