Dr. Kang surgically corrected my deviated septum. I thought the office was more money oriented than patient oriented. They overcharged me for the surgery and I had to wait three months to get a check from them, even though they demand payment in advance. The surgery still left a small lump on my septum, although he said he did the best that he could. The office staff are friendly and Dr. Kang does listen well but I would not recommend him.

Dr. Kang is very professional. He listens and is very responsive to suggestions. I had a lot of confidence in him and his abilities. He has great bedside manner and treated my surgery with great professionalism. I would definitely recommend him to others.

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.
