Verified Patient Reviews
It was excellent the fastest I was in and out of doctor office ever
Dr. Culang and the staff were all really accommodating and made me feel relaxed
Very positive visit. Staff is very friendly and professional. Doctor Culang is very patient and knowledgeable about his practice.
I have been a patient of Dr. Culang for about 5 years. He performed my sinus surgery. He came highly recommended. The office staff is very friendly and polite as well.
Dr. Culang is empathetic and very thorough in my examination. I highly recommend other ENT patients to him.
Dr Culang is terrific. He is our 8 year old son's ENT & Surgeon for his adenoidectomy. Dr Culang is very communicative, he listens and takes the time to make sure all your questions are answered and that you understand all the options available. He's an excellent surgeon and has a terrific bedside manner. He was also terrific with our son, asking and speaking to him directly and listening to his responses. When possible, he consulted by phone as well as making himself available by email. 5-stars.
Everything was explained in detail. Very thorough.
Dr. Culang is very nice, personable, and funny! He went through all the steps to diagnose and give me a treatment plan. I wish the wait time wasn't so awful, but the actual doctor visit was great.
He was very patient and this is the first time in a LONG time that a NYC doctor actually made me feel listened to and taken care of and not rushed!
Second time visiting Dr. Culang and I am never disappointed.I am ok with the wait because he has amazing bed side manner and listens to all your complaints. Definitely takes care of the problem.
Excellent. Answers questions. Discusses the situation clearly. I have an issue not with Dr Culang but this survey. The question "How long was the wait time in the office before you were seen?" is not valid. Any wait under 20 minutes can happen. Too many variables, e.g. a patient needs extra time, etc. If you needed that extra few minutes, wouldn't you want it? I'd rather wait and let the doctor do a thorough job than be part of a medical assembly line.
Very professional (him & all his staff), and explains everything very well
Dr. C is an amazing Doctor that is on the cutting edge of his field. He went above and beyond to explain all of the options for a procedure that I had to have. He and his staff are very accessible and I love that.
Dr Culang is knowledgeable and patient in answering all my questions. I would recommend him. What I didn't like was the hospital he works in. It is EXTREMELY HARD to contact the hospital. They NEVER pick up phones and you have to leave MANY voice mails before they respond. At the time of writing, I have been trying to request a prescription for 10 days. They don't pick up the phone, they don't respond to my voice mails, they don't put the prescription in and I have no idea when I will get my prescription.
But no one answers the phone so how is that even helpful to the people who see these doctors
The doctor is very professional, attentive.
Dr. Culang was a great listener. He was professional and thorough. He was present and patient.
Really nice doctor who took the time to explain things. However the wait time was horrible - over an hour and I had to ask the receptionist several times. Won't be returning!
I have the utmost respect for Dr. Culang. My son who is on the ASD spectrum has been his patient since 2011. We always have the best experience. My son used to have frequent ear infections and Dr. Culang recommended tube implants. He had the surgery in February 2012 with excellent results. Dr. Culang is a very caring health care provider and I would recommend him to all my friends and family.
Dr. Culang is very professional and knowledgeable.
Very satisfied with my exam. Dr. Culang was thorough and did not rush.
Dr. Culang was knowledgeable and friendly. His staff was helpful and pleasant to deal with.
Reception desk attendant was borderline rude. Doctor was friendly and professional. I saw the doctor 1 hour after my schedule appt. I myself had been late by 10 minutes.
Incredibly professional and knowledgeable, attentive and took my concerns seriously
Dr. Culang was very professional, kind, knowledgeable, and thorough. The wait was very long, and I didn't get definitive answers today, so I'll have to go back, but I trust him and his team, and feel satisfied with the care I received. Would highly recommend!
Except for the fact that they didn't have the information from zocdoc (which is likely zocdoc'S fault) it was procedurally and substantively as good as it gets.
Dr Culang gives it all. 5 Stars Doc!
It was awesome. The staff was personable. I had a bit of a wait but that seems more like a testament to a thriving practice.
Had a good impression. Seemed to know his business.
Dr. Culang is a wonderful doctor. He is kind and takes his time with each patient. I definitely recommend him as a physician. However, I found the office staff to be disorganized and unfriendly.
Very thorough and professional.
Very great experience. Was nice and down to earth and knew what he was doing. Would definitely return.
Thorough and friendly.
Great doctor, great staff.
Amazing doctor, I am definitely going back!
Great experience with Dr. Culang , very informative and attentive to the issue at hand. Recommend Dr. David Culang to any one in need of an ENT doctor. Very close to the Union Sq train station
Everyone was helpful and attentive
I think he was great. He thorough, funny and he listened. I liked him alot.
Dr. Culang is terrific. He makes you feel comfortable, takes his time, and listens very carefully. He's also a tremendously nice guy. Would recommend him to anyone needing an ENT specialist.
I felt very at ease and the doctor was thorough and knowledgeable. I am glad to have a good ENT specialist and will definitely continue to see Dr. Culang.
Quick an easy. Very informative.
Dr. Culang was great, took a lot of time to explain his thinking on my ear problem. Very professional and engaging.
Dr. David Culang has single-handedly restored my faith in the medical industry. I don't think I can speak more highly of my visit with him. After an extremely negative experience with a separate ENT, I was referred to Dr. Culang. My expectations in seeing him were simply to get the same assessment on my condition, and move on to surgery, as had been very highly recommended by the previous doctor. I explained all of this to Dr. Culang, and shared with him the scans of my sinus area. Dr Culang took the time to review the scans, and then walked me through exactly what we were looking at. The previous ENT recommended correcting my deviated septum, along with other procedures. Dr. Culang pointed out in the scan that there is next to nothing wrong with my septum, and that my existing issues may be best treated by seeing an Allergist, not surgery. He recommended surgery Only as an option should an Allergist not be able to alleviate my condition. I was floored by what he had to say, as I had almost gone forward with surgery with the other doctor, 2 weeks before. In short, I don't need surgery as I had been previously convinced. At least not before trying other less invasive options. Dr. Culang could have easily recommended surgery, but instead he very kindly prescribed an effective sinus medication, and the phone number to a highly recommended Allergist. Suffice to say that I am extremely grateful to Dr. Culang for his honesty, and his willingness to look after his patients first, before his own pockets/business. If you need an ENT, look no further. This is the doctor to trust.
Dr. Culang was AMAZING. Can't speak highly enough of him. He was thoughtful, attentive and personable. His office staff was also very helpful and kind. Can't recommend him, and his staff, high enough. A++
Mount Sinai typically takes long to attend you just because it's such a large practice, after 37 minutes (from the supposed start of my appointment) of paperwork and waiting, I was called in for my vitals and saw Doctor Culang. Confirmed my sinus infection, wrote my prescriptions, and sent me on my way with some nasal solution. He's a nice guy.
Dr. Culang was excellent. Understanding, helpful, personable, and beyond competent. I felt reassured after leaving his office and would recommend him to anyone.
Very friendly and thorough! The entire staff was very prompt and courteous. Will definitely visit him again
Dr Culang was attentive and clearly cared about addressing my concerns. I was very happy with how this visit went. His office staff was prompt and helpful as well.
Dr Culang is a very nice and very professional doctor I would highly recommend. His staff was also very pleasant and professional.
Excellent doctor - top-notch.
Dr. Culang was decent enough. He was pleasant, and I am extremely grateful that he made the effort to arrange an appointment with another specialist which will ultimately get me the equipment I am desperately in need of. And I suspect he is not directly to blame for the issues of his office, since it is possible he is being forced to take on more patients than he can adequately handle. But the office is a disaster. The receptionist was unpleasant, cold, and slow-moving. I arrived to my appointment ten minutes early but was surprised that I was then asked to fill out pages and pages of forms that were nearly identical to the ones I had pre-filled out on Zocdoc (what is the point of wasting my time here if that's going to happen?) I was not asked into the examination room to have my vitals checked until nearly an hour after my appointment was scheduled. It was another 20 minutes before I saw Dr. Culang and our consultation took, at most, 15 minutes. I might return to Dr. Culang if he moves into private practice or another affiliation, but my time is valuable, as well, and I don't foresee returning to Mt Sinai/Beth Israel Doctors if I can avoid it.
Dr Culang and his staff are fantastic. The doctor has a wonderful bedside manner and made sure to carefully listen to my complaints and explain my diagnosis and treatment.
Dr. Culang was excellent. Excellent bedside manners. Made me feel at ease and comfortable. Made me aware of things that were contributing to my condition related to my sinus congestion. With his advice and diagnosis he prescribed an inhaler for my congestion. The inhaler actually worked better than I expected and presently, I am breathing much, much better and not feeling the stuffiness that I was feeling prior to visiting Dr. Culag. He is a true professional, well versed in his field and really caring. I will continu seeing him and I highly recommend him to everyone.
Dr. Culang was great and professional, however I can't say the same thing about the office. Reached out to me twice to get my personal info prior to my appointment when I already filled it online, and now I have a problem with a prescription and can't get a hold of them not by email and not by phone! That's really such a shame!
Pleasant, reassuring. Have no fear . He's good
A cautious doctor, who's quick to refer but short on detail.
Prompt & professional.
He is interested to assist and is quick to target and provide the relief you need. The receptionist approach can be improved however, as I was under the impression that all necessary medical information was automatically transferred via zocdoc.
Listen to my questions and gave thoughful and reflectful replies.
Really nice, knowledgeable and down to earth.
Dr. Culang was really great and clearly super smart about ear and sinus issues. The staff who checked me in were a little less than helpful, but didnt take away from my medical experience.
Younger guy, seemed very friendly and together. He listened carefully, and gave his opinion and advice very clearly... we will see if it works!
Office managers were nice and supportive, office clean and nice. Dr Culang didn't solve my problem but helped me to understand what should I do. He's very knowledgeable and delicate! I'd definitely come there next time if I have any problems!
Dr Culang is simply the best of the best. He has a fantastic bedside manner who will take the time to answer questions and explain anything you need. His knowledge of the most current medications and what one's insurance may cover, taking them into consideration based on your diagnosis and combining it all with your own experience, and his extraordinary knowledge about the utilizations of the medications is exceptional. I went in expecting to need sinus surgery and instead have been able to keep my conditions under control with a simple regime. Dr Culang is also right there for me when I have become ill or infected and need urgent care. He returns calls, and one he even tended to my needs by telephone on a holiday weekend. He should be listed as one of the best, most caring, gentle and insightful ENTs (Otolaryngologists) in all of NYC!
My visit with David Culang was nothing short of professional, courteous, and efficient. It was a great experience and I will be recommending his services to friends and family in the future.
Dr. Culang was nice enough, and appeared to make an effort to address my immediate concerns in a to the point, though far from thorough manner. I felt like I was being rushed. The overall experience appeared just professional enough that I felt comfortable booking a surgery with his office. How wrong I was. I was given a number for their surgical coordinator and told to call giving a week or two notice to schedule the surgery. So I started calling. And calling. From the last week of September to the end of October I called multiple times and left multiple voicemails. I didn't get their surgical coordinator on the phone until the end of October, at which point she acted as though the very first message I had left for her was just the day before. I was then told that there were no open availabilities for surgery before the end of the year, after which the doctor will no longer be in my network. Needless to say I will never be going back. Bottom line: Dr. Culang is fine if you just need a prescription for nasal spray, but if you need anything more complicated be prepared to find yourself searching for a new otolaryngologist.
He was very professional and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend.
Friendly and honest.
Very accommodating, very professional. Excellent staff. Cured my condition quickly and painlessly. Highly recommended.
I thought the visit was great. The doctor listened to me before he started to dismiss or recommend anything. He was very straight forward and honest In a good way. Very good doctor
THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER! DO NOT VISIT THIS PERSON. I LEFT FEELING LIKE I WASTED MY TIME COMPLETELY, HE DID NOT HELP ME AT ALL AND ON TOP OF EVERYTHING DID A "PROCEDURE" WITHOUT TELLING ME HE WAS DOING SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE CHARGED EXTRA AND NOW IM FACED WITH A BIG BILL FOR LITERALLY LOOKING UP MY NOSE. HE DID NOTHING ELSE BUT TO EXAMINE ME LIKE ANY OTHER DOCTOR WOULD AND THIS CHARGE IS INSANE. I'M OUTRAGED OF WHAT DOCTORS CAN GET AWAY WITH AND THIS GUY IS ONE OF THE WORST.
Very professional straightforward
Doctor and doctor's assistant were great! the doc is straight to the point, but nice! The front desk woman was kind of rude not too bad.
Straight to the point, nice, and didn't perscribe unnecessary medication which I really appreciated!
Very highly recommended.
Very positive, engaging and I think helpful!
Knowledgeable, personable, efficient, not scary at all. :) Very good experience.
He was nice but very unhelpful. I went because of chronic sinus infections, he prescribed that I use a neti pot....that was it. He looked into my nose and then I get a bill for a "surgical procedure" that was not covered. He is a complete fraud.
Dr Culang is a wonderful Doctor. He remove my daughter tonsils. He explained every nice and understandable.
Never ever use this doctor. His staff are terrible. I just got called by a debt collection agency because they got my address wrong and were sending the bill to the wrong address. They didnt bother to call me, contact my insurance company to check my details or message me on zocdoc where i had booked to find out why i hadnt paid. I also went back to see him during the time they were trying to bill me and no one said anythig while i was there!! DO NOT USE!
Remembered me from last visit and already anticipated why I came in. Ear suctioning was quick and painless.
Heh, it was alright for a first time.
Attentive and explained his findings or lack there of in detail. Was able to schedule additional tests with ease. Friendly and patient as well. As a healthcare provider myself, I can vouch that he's a great doctor!
Dr. Culang was great. Very attentive, answered all my questions and I truly felt taken care of! Came to see an ENT by recommendation of my primary care doctor, and found him on ZocDoc. What a pleasant surprise -- to actually feel like your doctor takes you seriously and put my mind at ease! Would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone. Thank you!
Dr. Culang was great and I will see him again. Howver, his front desk staff was terrible and completely unorganized. The wait was long and the receptionist complained about her job to every patient waiting. Expect a long wait and unpleasant staff.
All staff from vitals to the doctor himself were smart, wonderful people with kind personalities. Didn't love the people in the reception area, but hey, you can't win em' all. Glad I decided to take this route. Very helpful, sincere and professional.
He's great -- personable, good at explaining things & providing options. He's not super quick to shove antibiotics down my throat, which I really appreciate.
Dr. Culang was really great and helpful. His front desk staff is awful. I had to wait an hour for them to verify my insurance even though I sent that information in a week ago when I made the appointment.
Wonderful doctor (and I am picky) - very thorough and careful to explain everything. I had a million questions and he was very patient and answered all of them. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Culang is incredibly professional while being approachable. He answered all my questions and presented options as well. Highly recommended.
My specific reason to visit was to see if I could seek other ways of treatment besides medication. I walked out with an additional medication, instead of reducing what I took. He told me he really couldn't' help me, but made sure to do his drug duty and throw a few samples my way. I don't feel comfortable continuing to see someone who doesn't respect my wishes and offers only drug solutions.
David comes across as very knowledgeable about the field. He listens and involves the patient in coming up with the best plan forward.
He was very professional and efficient.
He is great doctor who does nbot push you out like paperwork. He takes his time. He performed an in office procedure that most doctors would have just set me up for surgery and save me alot of pain. Overall great doctor!
I had a visit with Dr. Culang at 11:45am on the 21st. I had no problem with the doctor but the staff!! Dr. Clang was great and attentive. As my insurance is from abroad, I had to pay first and would file to my insurance company to get the money reimbursed. And so I asked the staff to get a doctor's note about my visit and she asked me to call in the afternoon. I did and gave her my email address. I didn't get any. I called the next morning and asked again. This time was a different staff named Jessica. She said they didn't even have my email on the file. I gave it to her again. I didn't get any. I just called again and no one picked up the phone. It's so unprofessional and annoying. I'm still hoping to get the note and we'll see.
Dr. Culang was fantastic. Extremely helpful. Articulate. Took his time. Only issue I had with the whole experience was that the front office was pretty chaotic. But once I got into talk to the doctor everything was great.
What a pleasant visit. Wait time was short, even with me being a new patient. The staff was extremely kind and professional. Dr Culang was patient, informative and thorough. I look forward to my follow up visit.
I was suffering from outer ear infection for a long time and he thoroughly asked what I've been through with my ear infection which was great. He treated me after understanding my condition fully, and also he did suction without any any any pain. Normally suction was so painful to me. He answered to all my small questions that I had about ear infection. HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM.
Dr. Culang is great, and his practice is run extremely well. I ended up over-compensating in my commute and arrived nearly half an hour early and expected I'd probably wait a bit to be seen. They got me in as soon as they could, and I managed to walk out the door about two minutes before my scheduled appointment. Dr. Culang's techs were lovely and the doc himself was very professional and thoughtful. I asked questions and he had no problem giving me straight answers. When I pushed for more info, he was communicative, detailed and engaged, making sure what he was saying was understood. I will certainly return to see him.
Hes smart and efficient and clear. Totally trusted him and he fixed my ear problem completely. First time using ZocDoc was with this guy and I am really happy.
Great doctor, takes the time to listen and thoroughly examined what I described before giving his analysis. Would visit again without hesitation!
Not the kindest doctor, definitely not a people-person.
He was professional, thorough, prompt and kind. I have no complaints.
Super quick registration. Saw me almost right away. Answered all my concerns and gave me multiple treatment options with his professional input. Highly recommended ENT.
He was very attentive and professional. Good experience. Would recommend for something like ear infection (only experience I had). Clean and spacious office.
Excellent Dr. Highly recommend. One of the best specialist I have visited. You will leave feeing better and with a solution to your problem.
Zoned in on my issue immediately. Very professional and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend.
A calm, reassuring bedside manner when asking questions and listening to my concern (a quality often hard to find in doctors working at a big hospital). Really thorough and detailed in his explanation of procedures, diagnosis and treatment options. The admin staff was not quite as with it but no big complaints there either.
The office staff was more than polite and helpful. The Dr not only fully explained his concerns but made sure mine were addressed first.
Very nice, no ego, which is always appreciated. Only negative was I had a long wait time.
Dr. Culang met me quickly, explained the cause of my symptoms, shared his reasoning for prescriptions, and had a great attitude. I would definitely recommend him to others.
The doctor checked my ears and made me do a hearing test to make sure I had no hear loss in my ears after a concert that traumatised my ears for a couple of weeks.
The ladies at the desk were friendly but they were not efficient, instead chatting away and taking their time. not good when you are sufferring from a lot of pain and have a million other things to get to. The doctor was great though. very good at what he did, good at explaining what was going on, fast yet careful. i will most certainly go back.
Such a great guy. I came in freaking out about my throat and he had me totally relieved and relaxed by the time I left. Highly recommended.
Front desk was a delight, doctor was smart, intuitive, and had a great sense of humor
Dr Culang is great. Fixed my issue within 5 minutes. Unfortunately, I waited over an hour due to lack of communication between ZocDoc and the office as well as the office and myself. I had a 1pm appointment but Dr Culang was not expected in the office until 2pm. This was never communicated to me through ZocDoc or by his staff while I was in the waiting room. Both 1 and 1:15 appts were available on ZocDoc and I also received a confirmation call from the office. I was in the waiting room for 30 min before I was seen by a nurse who took my vitals. Another 20 min went by in the exam room before I made a nuisance of myself and was finally told that Dr Culang wouldn't be coming in until 2pm. Had I known, I would have rescheduled the appointment due to work demands.
My visited with David Culang was good he helped me right away
Very good. Especially on the follow up. And the whole staff and team was nice.
Able to accommodate a visit within a short period of time, however the wait time was very long and the reception staff was not that friendly.
Doctor Culang gave me his full attention and explained what he was doing, which I appreciated.I would recommend him to anyone looking for an Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor.
Dr. Culang and his staff are professional and efficient. I'm pleased to recommend him to those seeking a new ENT doctor.
All Dr Culang's support staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and made sure I knew exactly what was going on at all times. Dr Culang himself was knowledgable, easy to talk to, and really took the time to understand my concerns, and manage my health issues. I was really impressed overall, I would highly recommend Dr Culang and his staff to anyone needing an ENT.
Very pleasant consult and Dr. Culang made himself available if there was any issues with my prescription. Very cool.
I've been seeing Dr. Culang for years and he's absolutely wonderful. When I had an ear problem that was outside of his expertise, he recommended a terrific specialist. His office staff are all great too.
Had a wonderful experience with Dr. Culang and his staff. Thorough, professional and just great.
My daughter went to see Dr. Culang with chronic post-nasal drip and morning coughing. In less than 15 minutes he told her it looks like allergies and was out of the room. Will not be returning.Word of advice, if you go, make sure you have met your deductible!
I felt that Dr. Culang addressed my concerns thoughtfully and honestly. But what makes or breaks a doctor's appointment in New York City, for me, is the administrative staff. The reception staff here greeted me immediately (I even saw one of them go out of her way to dash into the hallway to greet another patient who seemed lost!) and treated me with kindness and a sense of humor. I was seen promptly and all told was in and out in well under an hour. Almost a miracle-- thank you very much!
Direct and to the point. Explained benefits and negatives of proposed procedure and made follow up plan that worked for us both.
fantastic service and recommended me to another great ENT for my vocal polyp surgery
I think he was great he took his time and check me out the right way I won't mind going back to him
I would see Dr. Culang again, he was thoughtful and reassuring took time to listen to problem .
Very friendly and helpful staff. Dr. Culang was very professional, attentive, and prompt.
This doctor just wasn't very polite or friendly. He mostly seemed annoyed that I was there--arrogant. I had recurring sinus infections and strep throat so a colleague of his recommended I see him. I won't go back. He seemed technically skilled - maybe? but to me there is no reason to go see someone who can't be bothered to be nice and engaging. If you don't like people, maybe you shouldn't be a doctor?
Dr Culang was wonderful. He listens, checks everything thoroughly and is extremely pleasant. I highly recommend him!
Dr. Culang was wonderful - very attentive and present, answered all of my questions before I even asked them! He was upfront about the recovery post-procedure and put me at ease. Highly recommend him! Some of his front desk staff were a little unprofessional but not terrible. Most of the staff was very attentive and kind.
So far so good.
Very informative and thorough explained the issues and did not feel rushed.
Dr. Culang is superb. Great bedside manner, very accessible (when I was having acute problems he gave me his cellphone number!), and always helpful and frank. I recommend him highly.
I have been in the office before. Great service & professional atmosphere.
Dr. Culang was very patient and explained his diagnosis well. He was very knowledgeable. However, the wait time was 45 minutes! I spent slightly more time waiting than I did with the doctor.
He was kind and thorough!
Dr. Culang is one of my favorite doctors. I've been seeing him for years and he's unfailingly terrific. His office staff could be a little more organized but they're very pleasant to work with, especially his assistant, Margarita. Sandy the audiologist is wonderful too.
Wait time was too long, wish they had informed me beforehand I could've not spent it in the waiting room. Otherwise Dr. Culang was very patient even though the hour was late and took his time explaining my diagnosis and answering all of my questions.
Dr. Culang was clear in his dialog with me, explaining the situation and then very patient during my examination. It's rare to find a doctor with this kind of personality.
Very smart, thoughtful, and thorough.
So professional. So personal.
If any other problems accrue within his field of study I would want him to be the doctor that I see. Great doctor
Nice guy and very professional.
I like that Dr. Culang provided me with his recommendations and allowed me to discuss which plan of action I wish to take.
If a doctor visit can be a positive experience, this was it. Dr. Culang was kind and more than willing to discuss my symptoms, diagnosis, and prognosis. The office was modern, clean, and accessible. Five stars - Glenn
On time and professional
It was very professional, the staffs were very pleasant and efficient.
It was a thorough exam!
Very pleasant. Helped me with my problem. Would not hesitate to call him again.
Excellent professional bedside manner. Very thorough.Will definitely see him again. Highly recommend him.
Very professional and thorough. Efficient with both of our time.
great, informative & helpful.
Super friendly and attentive! :)
Seemed very knowledgable and explained options. Highly recommend
Excellent doctor. Will recomend him to my friends and family.
Concerned, considerate, and competent.
He was informed and helpful. The first doctor that did not immediately recommend surgery
He was great, just what I was looking for.
