What People Say About Dr. Richard Chang, MD
Reply
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.
