What People Say About Dr. Peter Ching, MD

Dr. Ching spent a lot of time with me explaining in easy terms a very complicated medical condition which gave me a much better understanding of my situation. I asked many questions and he answered them all just as clearly. And he has a great bed side manner, he's funny.

Dr. Ching was patient and very specific. He did not appear to be rushed. I could explain my issues and concerns with him without interruption. This was my first visit with him and I am comfortable with his skill set for my surgical procedure to follow. Dr. Ching did not "sugar coat" post operation recovery and informed me that "it" would be painful for approximately one week after with full recovery in about four weeks. Feeling relieved and hopeful. Stay tuned as I will update this review.
