Charges $250 yearly "fee"

Ok experience. He's nice but seems rushed. Appears agitated if patient asks too many questions. Charges patients $250/year just for the honor to make appointments.

Intelligent, caring, kind, direct, open, actually LISTENS, trustworthy, nice sense of humor, great staff who have repeatedly gone out of their way to help me with insurance and scheduling issues. Dr. Chang has helped me through more than a couple significant (to me!) health issues through his own expertise and, when necessary, via recommendation of specialists. I highly recommend him. The specialists he's recommended to me have been quite good too.

Overall experience excellent. Took me seriously. Cautious yet kept following up and doing what needed to be done without overdoing. Called me at home. Asked me to e mail him with any concerns and questions, and always answered. Interventions may have been life saving.
