Great doctor and cares about his patent. Realizes the situation that you are facing as a patent . Very trustworthy, understanding, truthful and minimizes pain and discomfort. Referred to Dr. Chang from Glasgow Medieval Medical Center. The only good thing that came out of Glasgow Medieval Medical Center was the referral!!

I was considering elective surgery and consulted two of my personal physicians. Independently of each other they both suggested Dr. Chang. One of my physicians described Dr Chang as being very energetic and highly meticulous in surgery. He is indeed very energetic. Inside the exam room there is a sense of urgency but I found that he was very patient in addressing all concerns and answering all questions. His staff was highly attentive and very accessible.

Very pleased with recent procedure. Dr. Chang was very thorough in his explanation and expected outcome. He made sure I was aware of every aspect of the procedure and recovery. Follow up was great and the staff were very attentive. Couldn't be more pleased.

Dr. Chang is a conscientious physician. He listens to your desires and makes recommendations based on his professional experience. No pressure for decisions. He works more like an artist. I went from a saline implant to silicone. A wonderful decision. They feel more real. The implant feels more like my own flesh. Recovery was excellent. All expectations were met or exceeded. I would certainly recommend Dr. Chang.

My whole life I had a vision of what I wanted my body to look like. Pre-children and even after delivering 3 babies which included twins. I would go to the gym and work hard with no avail. I finally made the appointment with Dr. Chang and his assistant Chelsea. After spending 2 hours with me for my "free" consultation I knew that Dr. Chang understood my expectations and wants. Dr. Chang exceeded my expectations. Very thankful!! Highly recommended!!

My experience with Dr. Chang was quite lovely. I chose to have my breast augmentation surgery with him because he was interested in what was important to me. During the initial consultation he was professional, honest and created an environment of comfort. The surgery (May 2016) was uneventful and recovery was as he had explained. During the follow-up visits he assessed healing and provided directions on exercises, sleep position, support bra use and precautions. I consider him a fine physician!

Dr. Chang is very personable and professional. He spelled out every detail of my abdomenoplasty and liposuction and it went just as expected. I am thrilled with the results and am recommending him to friends and family.
