Patient Comments (1)
in Huntingdon Valley, PA |
Found Dr Chang to be informative, straightforward and caring. He explained everything to us on our first meeting. The surgery went according to everything he said it would, and I was updated periodically during the procedure. His manner was top notch and professional on a personal level, never treated us like a number. I would definitely recommend Dr. Chang.
