    How was your appointment with Dr. Kang?

    Apr 12, 2022
    I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2018 and was referred to Dr. Helen Kang. During my first visit, I was a bit apprehensive, but it turned out to be a good one. She was very straight forward in explaining to me and my family the seriousness of my condition, no sugar coating, no non-sense talk. She was very detailed on how we are going to tackle the situation. The surgery went smoothly. Dr. Kang speaks frankly and can be perceived as offensive and uncaring, but I find it the opposite. I am so lucky and blessed to have been referred to her. She is very good in what she does and cares a lot about her patients. My son always tells me "Mom, we are so lucky that Dr. Kang is your doctor. Thanks to her that you are okay." I still visit Dr. Kang for my yearly mammogram.
