Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Chang "Caring for patients and families with cancer and hematology diagnoses is what brings me the greatest joy, meaning and purpose as a physician. To me, caring for patients and families is not only about providing the most excellent and highest standard of care possible, but also understanding the needs and greater context of my patients' families as a whole. I feel blessed to be a part of the exceptionally dedicated and loving pediatric team at Mary Bridge."
