What People Say About Dr. Susan Whang, MD

I thank God for Dr. Susan Whang -- she did not 'rush' me into a possibly unnecessary surgery -- rather she ordered additional testing to rule out other causes for my symptoms. Dr. Whang is completely professional and totally COMPASSIONATE in dealing w/patients. I am grateful for her willingness to listen, provide good medical counsel and follow through in each aspect of needed procedures. I would recommend Dr. Whang to my friends and family without reservation!

She did my robot hernia surgery and I was very impressed. I had laparoscopic hernia on the other side and had it repaired by a different surgeon couple of years ago and I was on pain meds for 2 months. She did my other side and I was on pain meds for 1 night and back to work. Very professional and technically sound. I would go back to her for any other surgery I need in the future.

I would recommend a more seasoned Dr. My experience with her was horrible and lengthy. If you decide to go with her and you have an emergency after your procedure please go to another professional that way you have a second opinion and documentation.
