Eventually, most of us will find ourselves in an operating room for one reason or another. If you're lucky, your surgical procedure will be performed by a dedicated professional whose primary concern is to restore your health while incurring as little trauma as possible. If you're LESS fortunate, you'll end up with someone like Dr. Lang who brings another agenda into the O.R. : his need to entertain his colleagues with your prostrate and defenceless form, regardless of the emotional cost to you.

Although Dr. Lang is a competent enough surgeon, he seems to have lost sight of the fact that he's a physician, and not a comedian...an important distinction if you're his patient, unconscious and exposed, in a room among strangers. He also seems to have forgotten what all physicians learn at the beginning: First, do no harm.

Regret is not what you want to experience following surgery, but this is the position I find myself in. I chose to place my faith in Dr. Lang, and now I must try to live with that misguided and unfortunate decision.

Today Dr. Lang seen my five year old son and he was absolutely great. I believed everything he said and trusted his expertise in medicine. He seemed very concerned and willing to give us all possible options for my son. I like this doctor becuase he seemed like he really cared about his patients.
