Dr. Chang was great. I located Dr. Chang by searching Scripps website. I had sleep apnea, snoring, and difficulty breathing through my nose. And my original ENT didn't take it seriously. After an examination and a one night in-home sleep study that showed 58 "events" it was determined I had a deviated septum in my nose, and a very limited airway in my throat. Outpatient surgery was done at the San Diego Surgical Center (great place), to fix the deviated septum, remove the uvula and do other things to enhance my airway. The results were immediate. I can breath through my nose, and no longer snore or have sleep apnea. I feel so much better. I have had three office visits with the doctor. The appointments ran on time, and I never felt rushed. The office staff was also very friendly. I have complete confidence in Dr. Chang and will not hesitate to go back if future ENT related issues.

Dr. Chang has always been extremely helpful and professional, put me at ease, answered all my questions, and performed the needed medical procedures in her office, painlessly and satisfactorily. I've been seeing Dr. Chang for a few years and her new office is really nice. More importantly, the new office staff are very professional and responsive.

Absolutely horrible experience having dr Chang as my ent. I needed surgery to fix my deviated septum as it was causing me a lot of pain, and it took them well over 2 months to schedule the consultation and surgery. By this time my insurance had changed, and it took them an additional 6 weeks to tell me that my insurance was not covered by them. They notified me only a few days before my surgery date. Not to mention they kept changing the surgery date around, and I ended up taking 3 weeks off of work for no reason. The staff seemed careless and uninterested over the phone, which made this whole experience that much worse. Now that I am looking for another doctor, due to the coronavirus I have to several months to get this surgery that I need. Dr Chang might be an educated doctor, but her team is utterly useless, so please do not waste your time going here. Your health is important and not something you want to mess around with.

I needed an ENT physician and was referred to Dr. Chang. She has great bedside manner, was caring, has wonderful communication, was gentle and you get a feeling of confidence in her abilities. I had surgery for a throat nodule and every aspect of this was at premium level. Her prior office had poor response and slow appointments. However, she has a new practice and they clearly have focused on being very responsive and far easier to get appointments. Highly recommended!

I would choose a different ENT practice, if I were you. I applaud Dr Chang's level of expertise, but the problem is her team. Very irresponsible staff who care less about their patient's best interest and only care about the money matters. Very poor follow up and don't even have the courtesy to call their patient's for the follow up. I saw the doctor 4 months ago, and when I called the Encinitas office, they said they forgot to get the insurance authorization and haven't heard from them again.
