Excellence and Compassion Personified

I've been seeing Dr. Chang as my primary care physician since 2002. In my entire life, I have never been happier and more comfortable with a doctor. I feel well known and understood, and he has never failed to provide help for any of medical needs. Dr. Chang always takes the time necessary to explain whatever is going on, its impact and what options are open to me. And he has a wonderful dry sense of humor which brightens what may otherwise have been a frightening or tense moment. I can not praise him highly enough.

I felt violated

I choose Dr. Chang because he was recommended by a neighbor who works at the hospital. In my last physical I needed a Pap test and requested a female doctor or PA for the test and shared my discomfort in having a male (Dr. Chang) in the room. I was assured it would be no problem. Some women could care less but I was uncomfortable and had placed my trust in them by sharing my concern and making a request that should have been pretty simple. Right in the middle of the exam Dr. Chang came waltzing in with a loud and laughing demeanor and actually touched me completely disrespectfully as he looked in my eyes. I was outraged and I will never go back. If I can't feel safe with my doctor respecting my needs then I can't feel safe with him helping me with my medical concerns.

Five Stars

Dr. Chang validated my symptoms and referred me to specialist who confirmed his diagnosis that was left untreated for 26 years by other doctors. I am now on medication that has relieved my condition giving me my life back. I am very grateful to Dr. Chang and his staff.
