Angela Lang - Chief Operations Officer
Whether it’s keeping the practice running behind the scenes or meeting and greeting patients, Angela is not only Dr. Lang’s wife, she is the business end of our operation.
Angela and Dr. Lang began New Orleans Podiatry Associates over twenty years ago. As Dr. Lang treated patients in their new practice, Angela assisted her husband, answered phones, and served as the billing specialist.
The practice has certainly grown in the many years since they opened New Orleans Podiatry Associates, but Angela remains committed to maintaining a small practice environment.
“We want every patient to feel like family from the moment they reach out and call our office. All who walk through our door should feel comfortable asking questions and never feel rushed or confused about their treatment plans."
If you have questions or concerns about your NOPA experience, Angela is always available to listen and implement the changes that you feel will make our practice better.
