Specialties

Dr. Benjamin G Chang has the following 3 specialties

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Critical Care Medicine

    Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
    Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

Long wait is Worth it,once you get past the nasty staff.there is a good doctor

Dr. Chang is a good doctor.But I do have some issues with him. 1.He seems to laugh and make light of serious situations 2.If you want a appointment after 4:00PM ,You have to wait about two months. The afro-american secretary is a tyrant and of little help at all..She does not talk to you.She yells and is very nasty if you ask a question. Does not follow up on CPAP studies from CPAP companies sent to his office. good doctor,horrible staff,hard to get an appointment.

Dr. Chang is great.

Dr. Chang is one of the few docs I know who actually listens to his patients and puts all of the loose ends together before making decisions or diagnoses. He is very thorough and looks at a person as a whole, including lifestyle. I am very pleased with his care and easily recommend him.
