Ratings for Dr. Linda M. Lang
Straight forward, Honest and doesn't play games. She is a great listener...but not a mind reader...you need to tell her what is going on for her to do her job....which is excellent. I don't ever feel rushed and she and her staff have always been respectful of my time.
If you like a doctor who is straightforward and no nonsense, you will like her. She doesn't waste time, seems quite knowledgable and makes quick diagnoses. Some people such as myself appreciate her style because they just want to deal with the issue and get out of the office. If you prefer a doctor who is more compassionate and has softer bedside manner, you probably will find her impatient.
No compassion, but that's ok. I would rather a doctor to tell me how it is, what I don't think is right is when I am being told that is just the way you are, deal with it. She gave me a lecture that I was 5 mins late, however, I waited for an hour or longer any other time.
She definitely is a straight talker which some people might not like but she is going to tell you like it is. She will also challenge you on things like exercise and med compliance which again people may not like. Personally, I like having a doc who wants me to take responsibility for my own health related choices
Dr Lang is a very knowledgeable physician. However she seriously lacks compassion. This became apparent to me recently during a painful injury. -- She is seldom on time for early morning appointments. -- Her staff is great. They are very friendly and helpful. -- I have been a patient for 12 years. I am currently looking for another doctor.
I can't believe anyone didn't give her 5 stars!!! She's amazing! She is so great that my husband, who was nervous to have a woman doctor, has stayed with her and is very impressed. She's extremely intelligent and has something few doctors have - wisdom. She always seems to have a terrific answer to whatever question I have - even non-medical related. She is also very careful about the drugs she gives out. I have never felt rushed and feel she is very kind. The two nurses that work there are lovely, though the one may seem stern, she is actually very nice.
