Before I share my experience with Dr. Lang and her office staff, let me put my comments into a larger context: I have been Dr. Lang’s patient since 1986. Let me do the math . . . that’s 21 years. I even left her care once then came back because I couldn’t find a better doctor in my geographic area. I travel about 30 to 40 minutes one way to see her. I dread the day she retires from practice.
Dr. Lang essentially saved my life in 1986. I had initially been neglected by three other doctors regarding potentially serious complications from a chronic medical condition (disgnosed in 1974), then I went to Dr. Lang. She admitted she didn’t know what was causing the symptoms I was having (I like humility in my doctors) and referred me to an appropriate specialist (whom I also still see, by the way), who took good care of me regarding that problem. Since then, she has solved many medical issues for me or directed me to the specialiats I needed.
Yes, she can come off a little cranky and abrupt; the same for her office staff. If you’re looking for a warm and fuzzy experience, Dr. Lang and her staff aren’t it; come here only if you want your medical problem alleviated. I will say that Dr. Lang is very intelligent and funny; has a lot of medical common sense; and almost always has time to answer my numerous questions. Her office staff almost always expertly handles my complicated prescriptions and referrals. In these 21 years, I can count only three (in my opinion) negative encounters I had with Dr. Lang and/or her staff. Coming from someone who has a complicated chronic multisystem illness with a lot of ancillary medical conditions as well as a veritable army of medical specialists, them’s pretty good odds!
