Ratings for Dr. Richard Kang
Metropolitan Pain Consultants has really helped me get my life back. Dr. Richard Kang is one of the greatest doctors that I have ever gone to because he works to make sure you can still live your life. Dr. Kang knows his material backwards and forwards. He does not talk above you but puts his diagnoses and solutions in terms that you understand. So when you get home from the doctor’s office and your family asks you, “What happened?” you can actually answer their questions. Dr. Kang knows his material so well that not after 5 minutes after my father described the pain he was having in his legs, Dr. Kang had an idea of what the problem was. This was beyond astonishing because after six years and no answers from many other doctors, Dr. Kang had given us a solution. The staff is very understanding and kind. Sometimes there is a long wait to see the doctor but that is because Dr. Kang puts time into every patient’s appointment. It also depends on what time your appointment is. The waiting and examination rooms are also very clean and well furnished.
Dr. Kang is a very good diagnostician with an extremely friendly approachable manner. He will stick with you until he finds a reasonable solution to your control your pain. He is one of the few physicians who returns phone calls within a short time of your call. A real professional. Stan Kase

In May of 2010 I had 5 rods and 10 screws inserted into my back to correct a worsening spine condition. After my recovery I had been seen by many Pain Management Practices, because of a great deal of lingering pain in my back and legs. It was not till I was fortunate enough to be introduced to DR. Richard Kang, that I finally got on the road to the quality of life I was looking for. Dr. Kang took the time to properly understand what my problem was. First I was being over medicated. With the help of Dr. Kang, I was able to get off ALL the medications, prescribed for me by other doctors. THIS WAS NO SMALL TASK. Once free of the heavily addictive medications, Dr. Kang sat me down and explained to me that with the damage remaining in my back, I would most likely need to be on some type of pain medication for the remainder of my life. This was not a conversation about "give the patient what he wants, it was a conversation about QUALITY OF LIFE". I have found Dr. Kang to be the most knowledgeable doctor I have ever met in the pain management field. His way of explaining his plan for me took a great deal of stress off of me, and made me feel that there was actually a way to get back up and enjoying my life. His staff is wonderful and attentive. When I call for an appointment I am never turned away. For me, who will be a chronic pain patient for the rest of my life, Dr. Kang has detailed a comprehensive plan to move forward and bring some joy back into my life. I would highly recommend his practice to anyone who suffers from chronic pain. Jay Malakoff Edgewater, NJ
Dr. Kang is amazing. One of the best doctors I've ever experienced. When he diagnosed me, I was actually elated… all the other doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. He explained his plan for treatment very clearly, and I had complete faith in what he was doing. I've made amazing progress since our first visit two months ago. He's at the top of his game, with no ego. Everything he does is all about you, the patient.
I've been seeing Dr. Kang for two years. He has a great bedside manner and is very professional. The office staff is friendly, helpful and welcoming. And most importantly, Dr. Kang found the source of my debilitating back pain and was able to treat it effectively.
