Ratings for Dr. R. Narang
In March '09 I tore my ACL sue to a sports injury, Dr Narang had me in his clinic w/i days. Surgery December '09. Today I can walk, run, snowboard & skate all just as perfect as before (of course w/ a knee brace to keep safe!) But Narang did a wonderful job, even though my own recovery took a little longer than normal. I would highly recommend this surgeon! :)
My mother and I both had bunionectomies from Dr. Narang in February 2010. Although not always on time, he is very knowledgeable and skilled at what he does. My mother's bunion was severe and we are both very pleased with our outcomes. No more foot pain!
In 1983 my leg was badly broken in an accident out near Whitecourt. I was 12 years old and a tree fell on my during a windstorm while I was camping. It was bad, bones were sticking through the skin. Whitecourt doc took one look and said the leg could not be set, needed operation. He pinned a note to me detailing this and I was sent to the old St. Albert hospital (now demolished). Narang decided my leg did not need surgery. 3 agonizing weeks later he realized it did so a steel plate was installed in the femur, he didn't bother to actually repair the tibia fracture. Even back then, removable pins were the preferred option but I've still got this plate in my leg and the leg has never regained full strength. A friend of mine almost lost her hand to his negligent repair of a serious cut. Do not use this surgeon, you will receive outdated second rate care.
consulted for knee pain and a Baker's cyst. waited over 2 hours past my appointment time. told me that I did not need surgery, only a brace, which after almost a year has done little to ease the discomfort. now waiting for a different ortho surgeon to look at my knee and options available.
Saw him for the same very simple procedure on both feet - correcting ingrown toenails on both big toes. He locally anaesthetized both at the beginning of the surgery. When I was in severe pain during the digging out of the nail bed on the second toe, he told me that "I was experiencing pressure and interpreting it as pain." I will never forget that phrase as long as I live. AVOID THIS DOCTOR!
Broke my ankle in early June. Dr. Narang did the surgery to fix it a day later... he was extremely busy, with many simultaneous patients - but was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job. I was back at work in 2 weeks and walking again by August... and running by September. Highly Recommended for a broken ankle!
