This doctor sent me home to go into full withdrawal after seven years of pain management via methadone under another docscare who terminated me last month, when he could have written one prescription with a tapering schedule, which is all I requested. When I said respectfully that he had not been very helpful he immediately copped an attitude and he said he didn't have to give me the virtually useless prescription for neurontin to help with withdrawal symptoms that he was writing. He then referred me to an inpatient drug treatment facility like I was a junkie. He lacked empathy and compassion and was only interested in protecting himself and his licensure.

Very nice and understanding staff. The doctor was very thorough, and took his time. I never felt rushed or like his mind was engaged anywhere but with me. Highly recommend!

The staff was great, very friendly and courteous. But that was where the courteousness stopped. Dr. Kang immediately talked about doing a steroid injection as though he was reading from a script and didn't bother to look me in the eye throughout said script. He lost interest in me when I vocalized my hesitation with trying more injections. I've had 4 in the last 3 months with my last pm Dr. in Dallas and was very interested in exploring my options w/a neurostimulator implant ( I've had 2 major back surgeries in the last 2 yrs and currently have 4 large bulging discs and a misplaced rod from my last fusion). He had no interest in helping me with my current meds so I will be making a long, painful trip to my former and more compassionate doctor. He may help some, but not me, and I would NEVER recommend him.
