Dr. Chang is a fantastic podiatrist and physician. He is kind, knowledgeable, and compassionate. He is also very conservative, not performing unnecessary surgeries. His staff is very efficient, yet they make you feel as if you are a valued member of their practice. Dr. Chang and his staff did everything imaginable to help me with the price of my medication, appealing a $580 copay and got it way down. Thank you, Dr. Chang.

I broke my big toe. I was sent to Tuckahoe-whatever-in Richmond. January 2016, I TOLD The Dr I worked with horses and needed to work them them in winter weather. I got a boot & told to go. By summer I had a mess. I saw this Dr who respectfully waited until my horse show season was over in Oct. He fixed the toe which needed surgery since the Tuckahoe Dr hadn't set the toe right off. I have the highest praise for the Dr and the staff & not enough space here to express it! Highest Praises! SUPERB

I would not recommend Dr Chang to my worst enemy ! He had terrible bed side manor and instead of focusing on my feet problems he wanted to just consistently blame my weight for my issues ! His main focus was my weight ! He then left the room without saying anything else to me! I left feeling terrible about myself and that's not what it should have been about ! I will never return to his office for anything else ! And I will never recommend him , I will only tell people how terrible he is!

I saw Dr. Chang for a consultation regarding nerve pain subsequent to the excision of abnormal skin cells by a dermatologist. I found him to be very professional, personable and knowledgeable. He diagnosed my condition and provided me with various self therapies to hasten my healing. He was not rushed and patiently answered all my questions. I would definitely see him again if I needed a podiatrist.
