I was so thankful I was referred to Dr. Lang for a foot injury due to tennis. Dr. Lang and his team made me feel welcome and took care of all of my needs. My foot healed great and I am so thankful to be back on the court!

Recently had an ingrown toenail removed. I was very anxious and nervous about the pain and getting it removed but the doctor and staff made me as comfortable as possible. The removal was not nearly as bad as I had anticipated. The doctor is very friendly and so gentle that I didn't even know he had started the procedure when he did.

Dr. Lang is an amazing podiatrist. Working in the service industry for over a decade ,took a toll on both of my feet. Dr. Lang, performed both bunion surgeries on me. Best decision I ever made, I am able to stand with out any of my feet aching. I can once again fit comfortably in my shoes. Thank You !!! Dr.Lang
