I have the highest level of confidence in Dr. Fang and his abilities. He is a great listener and a quick study. Since we don't yet know what I am dealing with, Dr. Fang is trying to come up with a diagnosis through the process of elimination. He laid out a systematic and logical plan and discussed the different procedures with me to make sure I was comfortable with each one.

June 11, 2013

Dr. Fang was more thorough with me than I have been in a long time with the GI clinic. I miss Dr. Peterson, but Dr. Fang is just as good!

June 11, 2013

Dr. Fang always makes me feel that he is trying everything he can. I just love him.He is very easy to talk with and Sarah treats me like she has know me for along time. This makes a patient know that even though I am a complex pain in the butt, they always make me feel at ease. Dr. Glasgow is just as great. I know that they are doing everything they can. And they keep each other informed. I just can't say enough about how great they are.

June 10, 2013

My care provider was Dr. John Fang and he was very informative and spend time with me prior to my procedure as well as after. I have complete confidence in his ability and would highly recommend him and the U to anyone.

May 21, 2013

Doctor recognized the degree and severity of my symptoms. Made helpful diagnostic referrals and follow up procedure.

April 29, 2013

I'n very happy. No problem

March 12, 2013

My experiences with Dr. Fang have always been good. He takes time to listen and discuss any problems. He seems genuinely interested in the individual patient.

March 11, 2013

The visit with Dr. Fang was great! I had seen other doctors before and the time I was with Dr. Fang in that single visit was longer than all of my other GI specialist appointments combined. I was very pleased with all that happened

February 11, 2013

Great Doc, very honest and fun.

January 21, 2013

It was very nice that Dr Fang had a pharmacist involved w the vist. Tony was also very helpful.

December 04, 2012

excellent

October 16, 2012

After several tests unable to find problem

July 17, 2012

Everything was good especially Dr Fang

April 25, 2012

very accomodating

March 21, 2012

After waiting so long to get in, I was a little dissapointed that I still had to go through more tests before I find out anything that can be done. I'm just so tired of dealing with the Gastroparesis & I want to get it under control so I can get my life back!

February 15, 2012

Dr Fang is frustrated with my condition because he doesn't know what else to try. I have to see him because he is the only doctor in Utah that is knowledgeable about the gastric stimulator i have.

January 25, 2012

I did see Dr. Fang for a minute but I felt like it was not enough. No one had my records from my previous time with him. I was looking for options, ideas, and knowledge about my disease. Do I have any options - besides surgery? I felt liked I deserved more. I am not sure if there is anywhere else in Salt Lake to get help with Achalasia. I am discouraged about getting help.
