Dr. Chang's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Chang "I am a board-certified ophthalmologist who has been practicing in the Kansas City area since 1997. My previous practice was with KC Eye Specialists and I joined Heart of America Eye Care in January 2016. I specialize in comprehensive ophthalmology, seeing patients with medical conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes, and cataracts in addition to providing complete eye care for adults and children. I perform small-incision no-stitch cataract surgery."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Chang "What I find most fulfilling about practicing ophthalmology is the therapeutic relationships I develop with patients in caring for their vision and eye health over the years. I am grateful for the referrals that lead me to care for the families, friends, co-workers and neighbors of my patients. My goal is to provide the highest level of eye care in a thorough, caring and compassionate manner."

Dr. Chang and her staff have treated me both professionally and with a genuine sense of care during my two exams. I rate her as a top notch physician and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her care to anyone. The office seems to run very efficiently as well.
