What People Say About Dr. Richard Chang, MD
Reply
Dr. Chang is a kind, very smart, and quick to catch details, that you'll either need help with later in life, very soon, or suddenly. Always tell him any new odd feelings in your senses; sights, sounds, or distress, physical, or emotional, as many are actually symptoms, and he knows them all. He's a busy Doctor, serious, and focused on how to best help you with the newest, updated information, and you need to be just as serious keeping up with regular appointments. I'm lucky he's been w/me 5yrs.

I have met Dr. Chang in his office 3 times and he performed 3 coronary intervention procedures on me at John Muir Hospital, Concord. He is easy to talk to about complex matters. He is very professional in his diagnosis and in performing procedures. If you think you have a coronary issue, see him.
