Dr. Chang is easily the best physician I have ever had, no only in his approach to medicine but also in his compassionate "bedside manner." Throughout my time in the Burn ICU and through the outpatient clinic, Dr. Chang went far above and beyond the call of duty to make sure I received optimal care and that my pain was well managed. He was attentive and available whenever I had a question or needed care for my burns. Having a burn accident was probably the most painful and difficult experience I have had, Dr. Chang and the staff at NYP made the worst thing someone could go through into a positive experience. While I would never recommend going through a burn accident, but for anyone who suffers such an accident I wouldn't recommend going anywhere but NYP and having Dr. Chang as your surgeon. Thank you Dr. Chang, I wish there were more in the medical field like you!

Dr. Chang is extremely professional and very personable. Not only is he an extremely knowledgeable professional but but he takes the time to listen to his patients and to prescribe what he feels is the best treatment given the current patient situation.

Dr. Chang took me in and has been the most professional and caring doctor I’ve had. I had failed skin grafts from before which he fixed with great care. He made sure I understood everything that was to happen and kept me at ease. I slept for the first time peacefully after being transferred into his care.

Dr. Chang and the nurses at the Cornell Burn Center are outstanding. During both my in-person and telemedicine visits, they took great care of me. They were expert in their treatment, answered all of my questions, never rushed me, were gentle and kind, and put me at ease about what was a worrying injury for me. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Chang and the Cornell Burn Center to anyone.

I’ve been under Dr. Chang’s care since a burn accident in January and I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor. Always warm, welcoming and extremely helpful/informative. Truly the best in my opinion in terms of how the surgeries came out in the long run and quality of care. Phenomenal.
