Dr. Ching has been my trusted cardiologist in Pasadena for over 20 years. I never would have changed physicians but for his move to San Francisco. Dr. Ching is a brilliant clinician, listens carefully to concerns, takes time to answer questions, and responds to messages promptly. His advanced medical knowledge into the latest cutting edge procedures and treatment options are evident during patient consults, giving him a wealth of information to make an informed decision that is best for me.

I've been a patient of Dr.Ching for many years. He is a trust worthy doctor and expert in his field. If you have to place our life in someone's hands, he's your cardiologist hands down!

He performed my stent placement when I had a heart attack, from which I have essentially fully recovered. Smart, competent, great to work with.
in Oakland, CA |
Dr. Russell Ching has been cardiologist for several years. He is the best! I have been dissatisfied with four previous cardiologists, until I found Dr. Ching. He is easy to talk to, he listens and responds appropriately. He is very smart and experienced. His advice is always right on the money. He works very well with my other doctors. I have the highest regard for Dr. Ching.
