"Amazing I never had surgery before was very concern and depressed about my eye surgery during my initial visit with Dr Kang she explained what’s going on with my eye the type of surgery what to expect following surgery I left the office that day feeling calm and less depressed. My surgery was successful everything she explained was the truth and it put my mind at ease I am healing well. My follow up appts went well she took the time to sit with me and review my results. Dr Kang is a Dr who makes you feel very comfortable as soon as you walk in a bright greeting and a smile I would not hesitate to refer this great MD to my friends ….great experience.. Shaw,C"

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
