I have had surgery with Dr. Kang to make it easier for me to use my CPAP, and it was extremely successful. I have also been to him for ear infections and throat infections, and am currently undergoing allergy control therapy . Everyone within the practice is of the highest professional caliber, while at the same time being friendly and accommodating....couldn't be happier!

Dr. Kang corrected my deviated septum. I am now breathing much easier and am very pleased with the results. He also educated me on non surgical options and gave me realistic expectations for the results. I never felt like he was pushing the surgery. I am happy with my experience and would recommend him if you are considering this procedure.

I seen Dr. Kang 2 times I had a cas scan and showed my left check was full of mucus, it causes fullness to my ears, can not wear sunglasses as check is so full. M 2 nd visit he told me to get a hearing test and a hearing aid would help my fullness! Dr. Kang did nothing to help me get rid of the mucus in my check! I am now doing Actupuncture on my sinus which is helping getting mucus out, but a very slow process.
