I have referred him to friends. They all feel the same, he is an amazing doctor. He treats you as his only patient of the day not just a number. His mannerisms calm you and reassure you.

Dr. Chang was the worst doctor I’ve ever seen in my life. I would not recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Chang is the absolute worst. I was sick for two years and he didn’t do anything to help me. His “clinical assistant” was no better. Both are very slow and have no sense of urgency, nor do they seem to want to help solve the issue. He ordered a colonoscopy and endoscopy first, which was highly invasive to a 18 year old when an ultrasound could have been ordered first. I wish I knew then what I know now. This guy is money hungry and a waste of time. Terrible, horrendous doctor.

Dr. Chang is an exceptional doctor I know he is very busy. I arrived 10 minutes late for my appointment because I had the wrong time written. The office person informed me that I was too late for my appt. and had to reschedule without even a second glance she proceeded to look for another appt. now there have been times I have waited in a waiting room for an appt. for as much as an hour... not particularly here but I have waited. I am disappointed that this person could have some consideration

Dr Chang is a wonderful doctor and takes all the time you need to answer questions and solve problems. I have never felt rushed. He has been right on the mark with any diagnosis for me and I have complete confidence in him! Wouldn't go anywhere else!!

Dr. Chang was acceptable but his follow-through and his staffs follow-through was poor or terrible. This is not an ideal experience when you have been recently diagnosed with cancer.
