Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Change was my physician for approximately 5 years. He never discovered my heart murmur. Two physicians immediately discovered the heart problem. When I went to him because of a significant weight loss, he prescribed lab tests, which I was informed came back indicating no particular problems. Five months later Dr Chang's replacement found the weight loss disturbing and subsequently found lung cancer and liver cancer.

I've been seeing Dr. Chang for a couple of years now. I highly recommend him. He's knowledgeable, thorough, and with a great bedside manner. He listens to my concerns and answers my questions and never makes me feel rushed. I'm a complicated health patient and he takes the time to work through everything. He also acts as my primary doctor in my team of 8 other specialists and follows/oversees everything they do for me. An absolutely wonderful physician and person!
