Lake Ozark, MO |
Dr. Chang and his staff are excellent and on top of everything. Dr. Chang and Christian explained my surgery at length, discussed my expectations and exceeded those expectations. Great follow up after the surgery.
in Jefferson City, MO |
Dr. Chang was recommended to me by another ENT doctor to correct previous nasal injuries involving both the septum and sinuses. Dr. Chang offered excellent, reassuring explanations about the healing process and followed up immediately on anything that seemed out of the ordinary (length of swelling, etc). His staff returned calls very quickly and offered the same calm reassurance. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Dr Chang was amazing and does beautiful work if your considering facial plastic surgery. Very happy with my rhinoplasty and blepharoplasty. It is worth it to go to a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon and he is the BEST!

I completely recommend Dr Chang. He is wonderful at what he does and has a fabulous bedside manner. I was recovering in no time and the staff is wonderful as well. Couldn't be happier with my experience

Dr. Chang is an amazing doctor! We saw him after my father sustained multiple traumas to the face. He did an amazing job reconstructing his facial fractures and lacerations. He always listens to ALL of our questions and concerns, and answers in a way where we can understand. He is always patient and kind and takes his time to make sure we are comfortable with what is going on and what the future plan is. We are thankful for him and his amazing nurse Aileen. We can never thank them enough!
