I was very impressed with how quickly, yet thoughtfully Dr. Whang was able to assess my situation/personality and provide the much needed care. He is easy to talk to, a good listener, and appears to truly care about people. Simply put, he is a GOOD doctor.

Dr. Whang is the most reliable, hard-working, understanding, and genuinely interested in my quality of life more than any doctor, or any person that I had or have in my life. While our relationship has had to grow to this level over the past nine years he has taken care of my psychological issues, he has proven to be a very intelligent, trustworthy, and reliable human. He is certainly not out for money, prestige, or some other motive. Not to mention he is extremely good looking! That Helps!
