5 out of 5 stars

Cannot say enough good things about Dr.Whang. In an emergency situation I am thrilled he was my surgeon. Post care in his office was excellent.

5 out of 5 stars

The care team referred me to other Doctors to improve my health issues and I'm very grateful for that.

5 out of 5 stars

I came to Dr Whang and Dr Iannuzzi for a second opinion. I am very very pleased with both doctors. I feel very lucky to have found both of them. And will not be going back to my old doctor. I'm very very happy. They are both so knowledgeable and compassionate and spent time explaining everything to me.

Starting from the minute you walk in the girls are awesome. Dr Whang is very thorough, explains everything and very nice. I do recommend him.
