Been seeing him for several years now...He’s exactly what you would want your family doctor to be like...experienced, good listener, engaging on a personal level. If he doesn’t know the answer he has a full spectrum of qualified specialists that he refers to that are also very good.

I'm a 51 year old dentist and I trust Dr. Kang's judgement and approach to my health and well-being because he listens and engages with excellent listening and communication skills. This stems for his genuine care and concern for his patients.Even though he is very popular and has many patients I honestly feel like my wife and I are the only ones.

He was awesome! So very thorough...Didn't just send me for unnecessary tests - preferred to work thru things - ruling some things out beforehand. Clear and precise explanations - did not feel rushed at all! Sense of humor. Everything that you'dexpect a Dr. to be. His office staff was the best! I was so lost, and kept making errors (paying attention to GPS) and they stayed on the phone with me - making sure I saw certain landmarks - to be clear, I was 20 minutes late and they were apologetic for my troubles. The best! I'm glad I found this practice.

Dr. Kang is such an exceptional doctor because I suffer from minor health issues along with an anxiety disorder so I'm not the easiest patient. It takes a special doctor with patience, understanding and compassion as I often have many questionsand need reassurance when facing a health problem. Dr. Kang is wonderful because he treats my physical illnesses and can also link issues arising from anxiety- as anxiety often manifests physically. I see several specialists and Dr. Kang is the doctor that helps me understand issues and takes the time to explain conditions and address my concerns because of his kind nature and sincere concern. I also trust Dr. Kang best because he has never misdiagnosed me or given me unnecessary medications as some doctors have and created more problems. I highly recommend this doctor because he is my primary physician, caring for my physical health and he has also helped my anxiety because he takes the time to explain conditions my specialists are too rushed to explain. Since I've become a patient of Dr. Kang my health has improved drastically with his expertise and multifaceted approach. As Dr. Kang has helped my anxiety, I've gained weight and now have a stronger and healthier body. I'm forever grateful for Dr. Kang because he's gotten me healthy, keeps me healthy and has helped my anxiety disorder without medications (which never worked) as he heals me by listening, explaining, caring and by asking me thought provoking questions- healing my body, mind and soul.

The only reason I booked Dr. Kang was because of his reviews. I still went in with low expectations, especially concerns about whether English not being his first language may hinder my visit but not at all. His staff was extremelycourteous and kind. He even cracked a few jokes and really took the time to meet with me and understand my diagnosis. I've already recommended him to 2 of my colleagues.
