Patient Comments (2)

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...more
