Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

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.
