I have been seeing Dr. Chang for 17yrs. My 1st visit was due to a health scare. She walked me through the whole process with ease & kindness. Dr. Chang was later my OBGYN & delivered all 3 of my children. I drove from Olympia for my prenatal care & deliveries. She is the warmest most caring Dr I have ever had. Her passion for her profession is evident. I would highly recommend her!
