I'm one of the very lucky patient to have Dr. Janet Pregler as my primary physician. She's been my doctor for over 25 years. She is very smart, a caring individual, a compassionate, and an excellent doctor. I always get an immediate respond from her when I send her a [...]

More specifically, a middle fossa craniotomy to correct a condition I had been suffering from for five years called Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence or SSCD. The condition is caused by a hole in your balance canal [...]
Happy Doctors’ Day to the most wonderful OB, Dr. Alexander Chiang. I appreciate your honesty and approach-ability, and most of all, I appreciate the time you take to answer my questions in the office and out of office. I don’t know how you do it, but I really appreciate it.
