Dr. Ching-Fei F Chang has the following 2 specialties
- 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.

It is rare to find a doctor as caring and dedicated as Dr. Chang. She was a true advocate for my-mother-in law who had lung cancer. When the CT showed that my mother-in-law had a lung lesion, there were a number of options that could be pursued. Dr. Chang spent the time with our family to explain all this and advised us of the best path to take. We felt like we could trust her. Her knowledge is exceptional. She performed a bronchoscopy on my mother-in-law and made the diagnosis within days. She has a high level of dedication and energy, and pushed our case to surgery. Throughout all this, she made my mother-in-law (who is generally afraid of doctors and procedures) feel comfortable and reassured. My mother-in-law is currently cancer free and doing well. We are very grateful to Dr. Chang and cannot thank her enough for the wonderful care she has given us.
Dr Chang is very knowledgeable, caring and compassionate. What I like most about her is that she dies not leave any stone unturned and makes sure she reviews the case and offers options. My mother's case is so complicated and we were so overwhelmed with everything that had happened and frustrated that other doctors were pessimistic and not willing to help but Dr Chang did not give up and did the best she could each time. She is an amazing patient advocate and very intelligent. Thank you Dr Chang for giving us a chance.
